Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Since 2004, Casablanca Market in Silicon Valley, Calif., has been offering Moroccan imports and gifts. As she talked to clients, the company founder Katia Essyad noticed that there is a demand for the “hidden nostalgia of Arabian theme events that reflect exotic beauty, mystery and intrigue.” Consequently, she expanded Casablanca’s services to include event planning.
With warm atmosphere and vibrant décor, Moroccan themed parties are growing in popularity. Corporate America can turn to this idea for unique, inspiring events. Professional events may include product launches, client appreciation days, end of the year galas and team building functions. With delectable menus, it’s a culturally diverse way to take your personnel or clients from the hectic grind to a refreshing oasis. Also, a Moroccan mood can be soft and inviting, lending itself to small, intimate occasions. Showers, tea parties and small birthday celebrations would all be perfect venues to allow guests to feel pampered, Moroccan style.
The theme fits these casual events, just as it does “once in a lifetime” occasions. Brides might consider breaking out of the traditional event hall, by selecting a Moroccan theme for an unforgettable rehearsal dinner or reception. The soft lighting and plush fabrics, from floor to ceiling, create the ultimate romantic atmosphere. Brides may choose pillows and ottomans for seating and a unique Middle Eastern or African inspired menu. After a long day of festivities, guests and wedding party members will surely appreciate such a relaxing experience in a beautiful hand made Moroccan tent. Colorful tea glasses with ornate adornment make useful, appreciated favors. Add some belly dancers or snake charmers and wedding guests will be talking about the event for generations. Don’t forget bar and bat mitzvahs. Any young teen would swoon over such an elaborate event, unlike anything his or her friends have seen before.
How does a client pull off such an elaborate event? It’s simple. Casablanca Market will assist from the beginning to end. They will help find the perfect venue to transform into an exotic fantasy, with every prop or decoration a client could need, from tents and furniture to pillows, lanterns and dining sets. Upon request, Casablanca can provide belly dancers, fortune tellers, henna artists, dancers with fire and live bands performing Arabian music. They also have a list of preferred caterers who can supply anything from simple appetizers to a regal feast. With a touch of Casablanca magic, brides, expecting mothers, bar mitzvah guests, family, friends, staff or clients can all sit back and enjoy a Moroccan dream.
