Moroccan Theme Bridal Shower

Swoon worthy shower from Mandy of Ciao Darling

About a month ago I came across a gem of a blog that I immediately swoon crushed on.  Mandy of Ciao Darling was featuring a bridal shower, so unique, so perfectly executed, and so so swoon worthy, I could hardly contain myself.  I knew I had to share Mandy’s Moroccan Themed Bridal Shower she planned for a girlfriend.  What a lucky bride!

Mandy’s friend, the bride to be, said she would like “Moroccan Wanderlust…maybe a casbah?” for her bridal shower.  Mandy delivered and then some!

Here is a little info from Mandy: 20 yards of fabric, poufs, faux fur & countless pillows later…she had her casbah (with tacks, ladders & a very helpful father none the less). In our opinion, the following are required for all bridal showers:

  • Champagne (mimosa bar, anyone?)
  • Cupcakes (mini all the better)
  • Candy bar (color coordinated…duh)

Check, check & check. The casbah was fairly easy to construct in a few hours. The main ingredient being fabric for the tent. The purple sheer curtains are from Ikea($20!) and we purchased the pink fabric in bulk from a local fabric store. I gathered extra pillows from my house, Jessi’s and the good ol’ childhood bedroom.

Luggage tags & bangles were set in with the candy bar as favors. Pink & orange take-out boxes allowed guests to pick & choose their favorite selections.

If you’re willing, drink name tags are a detail that will not go un-noticed. It saves the hassle for guests who misplace their drink (everyone does it), but more importantly saves usage of champagne flutes and therefore reduces your clean-up time. I purchased shipping tags for their vintage quality & ease in attaching to champagne flutes. Vintage postal stamps were added flair (details, details, details!).

 

Can you believe this is what the room looked like before??  The Riverplace Hotel

Pretty remarkable, right???

    Oh my goodness, the before! I hope she left Morocco up for a while. I would want to party and belly dance every day. Now I want a Moroccan slumber party.
