Then let’s take a magic carpet ride to an Arabian Nights party like no other!
Arabian Night Party Décor For The Venue:
1. Arabian Nights Magic Genie Theme Backdrop
Of course, an Arabian Nights Party wouldn’t be complete without an Arabian skyline, a bright purple sky, and dazzling stars. Unfortunately, we can’t fly you all off to Morocco to experience this for yourself, but we can offer this amazing Arabian Nights backdrop. It’s bright and bold, full of colour, and really helps transport you to another world, no matter where you’re hosting the party! The stars and moons along the bright purple curtains framing the image are an excellent touch too, and help create even more magic!
2. Decorative Cushions
Cushions arranged on the floor for low seating are synonymous with Arabian Nights, but especially so when those decorative cushions are bright in colour and full of interesting patterns. This pack of four has traditional Bohemian patterns similar to medallions and compasses set on different brightly coloured backgrounds. Oranges, purples, blues, and yellows all work together here to create a low seating area at your party venue that is definitely unique, and certainly Arabian Nights themed!
3. Mandala Tapestry
A Mandala Tapestry like this is perfect for one of our Arabian Nights party decoration ideas because it has that Bohemian mandala effect that draws you in and almost makes you feel like you’re falling forwards into a world of wonder and Arabian beauty. Although this tapestry isn’t bright, the patterns and slightly darker colours are great for offsetting all the bright colours so far. Hang these around your party venue to break up the colours, whilst also keeping a familiar pattern theme throughout.
4. Hanging Lattice Party Panels
When we think of an Arabian Nights themed party, we immediately think about looking out through golden lattices from our dome-topped palace at the sprawling city below. And whilst no, we don’t own a palace for you to host this party at; we do have some brilliant suggestions using these amazing hanging lattice party panels. Hang these all around the party venue to create that sense of wonder we were just describing. The lattice patterns feel luxurious, so even if you’re throwing your party in a tiny studio apartment, it’ll still feel palatial with these panels!
5. Iridescent Star Moon Circle Garland
For our last venue decoration idea before we move on to another section of the party, we have this frankly breathtaking iridescent star moon circle garland. Arabian Nights are all about seeing the stars and the moon against the inky purple night sky. And whilst you might not get that effect naturally where you are in the world, this garland can help bring the Arabian Night’s night sky to help make your party even more immersive for you and your guests!
Arabian Night Party Décor For The Party Table:
6. Vintage Legend Aladdin Lamp
Now we’re on to the party table, we have to start with a centerpiece! And we didn’t have any other option in mind once we saw this beautiful vintage legend Aladdin lamp. We can’t guarantee a genie will appear if you rub it, but we can guarantee it’ll look great in the middle of your decorated party table. The intricate gold pattern design against the deep teal colour makes this lamp pop, and we just know your guests won’t be able to stop looking at it when they sit down to eat!
7. Moroccan Style Candle Lantern
Now, you’ll also want some mood lighting at your Arabian Nights party table to make it feel more cosy and atmospheric. So, we’ve found these beautiful Moroccan style candle lanterns. The beautiful white lattice frame, bright blue, red, and green windows, and easy to open door make these candle lanterns perfect. Simply light a tealight and pop it inside the candle lantern to cast a soft glow over the party table. For us, it doesn’t get more ‘Arabian Nights’ than this!
8. Arabian Purple and Gold Tablecloth
Decorating the table itself doesn’t need to be complicated. A simple Arabian purple and gold tablecloth will do nicely. This one has a very simple golden design on top of a deep purple colour, making it perfect for an Arabian Nights party. Perhaps our favorite thing about this tablecloth is the way the bright gold trellis print really pops against the deeper purple colour of the base. Trust us though, your guests will love this tablecloth and it’ll help make the party table really come alive!
9. Gold-Sequin Table Runner
The tablecloth alone might not be bold enough for you, so we’ve brought another suggestion too that will work great with the tablecloth. This gold-sequin table runner will look amazing as a dazzling golden strip down the centre of the table. The fact that it’s sequin too will mean the dancing candlelight will catch it and make it shimmer and shine like precious jewels! If you want to create a luxurious feel at your party table, then this gold-sequin table runner is the way to do it!
10. Gold Vintage Party Paper Plate
Of course, just because the table is fancy doesn’t mean you have to invest in fine china plates. This is a party, after all, and some gold vintage party paper plates will do the trick! The best thing about this set is that they have unique patterns too, including a complex floral arrangement, a single flower design, and a blank one that allows the intricate love heart border to speak for itself. These are the perfect tableware options because they look like they cost a lot of money, but they really, really don’t!
11. Arabian Incense Burner Holder
Smells are one of the quickest ways to transport people around the globe. No, you might not have the Arabian heat, the Arabian sky, or even the Arabian sands underfoot, but you can create the smell of Arabian Nights with the right stick of incense. But to burn it, you’ll need an incense holder, and we’ve found the perfect Arabian incense burner holder for the event. Featuring a baby deer, a parent, and a stunning waterfall, this helps reinforce the feelings of love and family anyone would want at their party, right?
12. Aladdin Napkin
We’ve not talked a great deal about Aladdin here because the theme really is Arabian Nights, and not just Aladdin, but that doesn’t mean we can’t use some of the Disney film’s ‘vibes’ when necessary to tie in with our party theme. These Aladdin napkins are just one example of how Arabian Nights and Aladdin match up perfectly. The beautiful teal background, the enchanting stars, patterns, and lamp, and the wonderful saying ‘follow your own heart’ across the front makes these napkins perfect for this party theme!
13. Gold Napkin Rings Holder
The Aladdin napkins probably won’t be the only napkins you use, so if that’s the case, you might want a gold napkin ring holder to keep your napkin tied up and in place. The strong geometric pattern works well, and the dazzling gold ties into our theme so far perfectly. Use these napkin holders if you really want your Arabian Nights themed party to be a little more luxurious than just a themed party at home. Using these holders helps to make your guests feel even more special too!
14. Patterened Wine Glass
Patterned wine glasses are a great idea for a themed party like this one. Especially when that patterned wine glass uses gold to fit in with the Arabian Nights colour scheme. It’s in the style of a noble and elegant crown and it makes the wine glass dazzle and sparkle by candlelight. Trust us, these wine glasses might as well be a magic carpet, because if you whip these out at your party, you really will transport your guests to a whole new world!
Arabian Nights Party Décor For YOU The Party Host:
15. Sultan Hat For Gentleman Host
And finally, one just for you gentleman hosts out there. It’s your night, and you deserve to feel as special as the guests. In fact, no! You deserve to feel even more special! So, why not pick up a bright gold sultan hat with a purple feather on top? It makes you stand out as the VIP, and it’s a lot of fun. Besides, your guests won’t really think you expect to be treated like a sultan all night, and they’ll love that you’ve taken the theme so seriously! Really, the best way to sign off an Arabian Nights party decoration ideas list is with a sultan’s hat, right? There’s really no other way to do it!
