An Enchanting Arabian Night was a very grand theme that we have carried out. Flash back to era of caravans, the majestic castles of sultans and extravagant parties. Organized at night, gave us the chance to play around with lanterns and glitters of decors from such tale of 1001 nights.
The theme colours were set to be in rich silky metallic purple & shimmery gold. The Arabian mood was brought alive with oil lamps, insence and candles throughout the scene. The transparent arabian tent with drapes of sky lights welcomes the sultans, harem princesses, belly dancers & oil sheikhs to the unforgetable night.
A sitting area was allocated by the gazebo with lots of classic throw cushions. Exotic Aladdin lamps, shishas and hanging glamourous chimes created the illusion of the Arabian Night. Bright colourful sportlights flashed up the palm trees of the garden and thus brought in the mood of the night.
Super shaped helium balloons brought cheerful effects to the atmosphere. A corner of the room was transformed into a play area for the children to enjoy themselves while parents get to catch up on each other. Delightful delicacies of sugar cakes boost the sweetness of the memorable moment.
A scrumptious arabian feast with grilled kebabs, ala-forno beef , brinjal musaka, lamb and vineleaf roll, meat platters served with pita breads & humus, fresh riped grapes and all sorts of other guiltless sinful desserts that lined up on the buffet bar created rumbling drools in each and every guests' hungry tummies.
Face painting and henna drawing have added more colours to the party. Games such as the musical chair have certainly added up to the fun. Participating without an age limit strengthens the bond amongst family and friends. Cheerful smiles were brought to their faces with small tokens and prizes. The excitement was then added up with a Pinata. To match with the theme and also the crowd of toddlers, a pull-string treasure chest paper box were fully stuffed with candies and toys in order to give the guests their treat of the day.
The party favors were home made with love. Silky colourful materials were sewn to be arabian pouches accessorized with matching golden and silver tassles. The embroideries of the princess' name and birthday captions made them even more outstanding. The pouches were then filled with edible gold coins as a symbolic of wealth and prosperity of the exotic arabian royals.
Satisfaction on everyone's faces wraps the nite of a great party!
