Morrocan Party Ideas

These look REALLY great…but you'll need someone who has a very simple computer graphics program and the basic knowledge to use it. Download some nice photos from the Internet of Morocco (you should be overwhelmed by the selection you find on the Internet) and load them into the graphics program. You can do this by 'right clicking' with your mouse on any picture you like, then selecting 'Save As' among the options. Save these to a disk on your hard drive. Across the top (or in any other place, depending on how creative you want to get with it…) put the words of the location. Then, in one of the corners put a large number (i.e. 40, 27, etc.)…essentially, you are making a large stamp. Once you have the image the way you want it, print it out and decorate cut the edges all around in the fashion of a large stamp (Fiskar scissors do a great job.) These look great just about anywhere. HINT: These can be done in assembly-line fashion and can be cranked out relatively fast once you get into the 'groove' of it.

Hang fabric for simple decoration. Near larger metropolitan areas one can always find some type of 'garment district' or wholesaler shops for fabric. These are great for finding a high variety of prints for prices that are a steal - otherwise try the clearance tables at your local Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby or Joann's Fabrics. Have fun searching for appropriate prints to hang like pinched tapestries on the walls. This simple trick does wonders for decoration (especially when the decoration supply is pretty thin.)

On a TV set, play a travel video/DVD of Morocco. You should be able to find one at your public library. Remember, this is for 'decoration', unless of course you'd LIKE your guests to watch the movie as part of an activity. The really great part about this is that you don't even need to have the volume on (in fact, especially for adult parties, the guests will probably more enjoy their conversations more than the movies…)!

Visit your local public library and check out different books on Morocco. These look great as part of table centerpieces or as general decorations placed throughout your party area. They can either be laying flat or they can also be propped up in a half open fashion (remember to visit both the children's AND adult's section of the library.) Cookbooks also look great!

Of course, there's GOT to be music playing. Visit your local library for Moroccan music (look in the International section.) If you don't have any luck at the public library, try tapping the shoulder of your local college student and have them take you to their university library…your jaw will likely drop at the selection! A word about volume: make sure that it's heard, but not so loud that your guests will have to speak over it for their conversations.
