Belly Dancing Party Ideas: Decorations + Food
A color palette of purple, teal, and fuchsia with highlights of gold will set the exotic mood. And here are the details to bring it to life!
Imagine your guests’ excitement when they receive the bachelorette party invitation (2) with this fab theme! Even more when you promise to arrange a fun, private belly dancing session (1). You may find a service like this one that actually provides a bachelorette party package that teaches the belly dancing basics, and provides a costume for the bride and scarves for the guests.
Which brings us to the perfect food spread for this occasion – a shawarma bar (4)! Guests will love this chance to make their own filled wraps from an enticing array of Middle Eastern chicken and beef shawarma, plus flavorful salads, dips, sauces, spreads, and garnishes. The ideal beverage to pair with all these? We suggest the iconic bridal shower cocktail, but with a Middle Eastern spin: Moroccan mint mojitos (3). And of course, surprise the bride with a cake (5) inspired by the traditional flowing fabric and gold embellishments of the belly dancing costume.

For a captivating party ambiance, create a luxurious lounging area (6). Lay piles of silk-wrapped and embroidered floor cushions and pillows on exotic area rugs. In the center, set out low tables for serving appetizers and Moroccan mint tea.
