Step away from a traditional American dinner party and opt for a vibrant, Morracan-themed alternative this holiday season. Because let’s be honest, there are only so many typical Christmas parties we can attend before it feels overdone and exhausting. So, surprise your friends with a get-together like no other with a colorful and exotic Moroccan theme to celebrate the season.

DECOR

Rich color is the name of the decor-game; so have some fun by throwing in pink, coral, mustard, and orange along with elegant beiges and golds. Step away from stiff, modern decor, and play around with a relaxed and whimsical meltage of conversation starters.
