Arabian Nights Themed Venue
Hiring a bespoke tent or marquee tailored to your Arabian Nights themed event is the perfect venue choice. There are plenty of options to choose from depending on how many guests you have and how much space you need. A Yurt or dome tent is great for small gathering, whilst stretch tents are a perfect for large parties.
Arabian Nights Inspired Decor
A luxurious but relaxed vibe is what you should aim for to immerse your guests in the Arabian Nights theme. Think purples, reds, burnt orange and gold. Kit out your tent with Moroccan Kobba lanterns and make sure there are plenty of traditional chests and trinkets dotted around the venue. Lavish drapes and Persian rugs will also add to the feel of the theme. And throw in some floor seating complete with cushions and throws to complete the look!
Exotic Middle Eastern Cuisine
Take advantage of the amazing food the Arabian culture has to offer when thinking about your catering. Moroccan cuisine features some brilliant options that are perfect for batch catering such as tagines and koftas, whilst lebanese street food can also be a great choice for an Arabian Nights themed party. You could even have some Turkish delight waiting on each table for when your guests arrive. If you need more advice and ideas, take a look at the party food tips you need to know!
Don’t forget the drinks too! Make large batches of Middle Eastern mint lemonade to keep your guests refreshed. It’s super easy to make, just blend 1 litre of water, 200g of caster sugar, 250ml of lemon juice, 25ml of orange juice and about 25 mint leaves and serve with ice.
