Update the traditional bridal shower into a magical Moroccan getaway! Here are some budget friendly bridal shower party ideas on how to achieve Morocco's essence in your venue of choice.

Watch now!

Use fabrics offering rich, bold colors such as purple, fuchsia, orange and blue. Choose fabrics with a luxurious look and sensual texture. You can use these to drape across tables and chairs, or to wrap around pillows giving an exotic Moroccan ambience. These fabrics can be purchased at any local fabric store

Bejewel place cards, menus, even glasses. Adding bejeweled decorations to centerpieces or table settings gives it a gem-like glitter.

Offer multi-purpose party favors. Print out traditional Moroccan recipes and attach them to bottles or small bags of their main ingredient. Use little gold or jeweled picture frames as place card holders. Also, bags of mint tea or spicy coffee give authentic Moroccan touches to party favors.

Lighting is key to capturing the Moroccan ambience. Use dim lighting throughout the venue with all luminescent provided by candles gives guests the idea they are walking into a sanctuary. Use votive candles or tiny tea lights placed in traditional Moroccan lanterns for table lighting.
