Moroccan Party for kids, adults, ladies.....

The blog 'By Little Hands' (http://bylittlehands.typepad.com/by_little_hands/2010/08/moroccan-party.html)  has a grand Moroccan party that was for little girls but could work for any age group of people!
Setting the stage was most important. I hung strips of fabric all around our porch to create the feeling of a Bedouin tent. Then I removed all of the seating and replaced it with chaise lounge cushions wrapped in silky table clothes. A few throw pillows, Persian rugs, and some Moroccan lanterns and we were all set. The kids started out the evening by applying henna tattoos to each other.

This design on glasses could be created by using rub-ons from scrapbook stores or stencils. 

For a dinner of Moroccan fare I served chicken kebabs, Moroccan meatballs (kefta), eggplant dip, humus, carrot dip, yogurt and flat bread. And don't forget the tea glasses for drinks.

Homekeepingheather from swap-bot checking out your blog.... the menu on this one sounds good. I've never tried Moroccan food, but I like eggplant & have been wanting to try hummus. Maybe I'll give this menu a try for a fun taste testing party at home :)
