on your personal tastes in food (as well as your guests) choosing those
fun edibles for your Arabian theme party can either be easy or difficult.
A typical Arabian menu might be a bit adventurous for some. Here are some
ideas for creating a great Arabian feel with your food that everyone can
enjoy with a few surprises, as well.
/ Aladdin Theme Party Food Ideas #1: Place small bowls of dried
fruits and nuts around your party area. These look nice and are great
for your guests to munch on. Make sure to provide small cocktail napkins
next to the bowls of dried fruit as they can sometime leave ones
fingers a little sticky
/ Aladdin Theme Party Food Ideas #2: Large bowls of fruit
in baskets look great as decoration and also provide food for
your guests! Be sure to use fruits that are common to the region
such as olives, oranges, figs/dates, bananas, apricots, apples,
melons, etc. If your guests arent sure whether or not they
are allowed to eat the fruit, you might need to grab one yourself
to model that its ok and that they are encouraged to enjoy
/ Aladdin Theme Party Food Ideas #3: Heres a fun idea
that can have multiple applications. Before your cake or cupcakes
are frosted, push a plastic coin or small treasure into
the cake. Once frosted, whatever disruption you created
on top will be covered and unnoticed. You can either offer a prize
for different kinds of items hidden in different cupcakes or offer
a prize to the ONE person who received the cupcake with the prize
/ Aladdin Theme Party Food Ideas #4: Place small paper palm trees,
small flowers and small handfuls of sand around the punchbowls and drinks.
In this way youll create a small oasis from which your party guests
can refresh themselves. For larger party spaces, you can even create a
sign naming the oasis. This would also work around the food table in general.

/ Aladdin Theme Party Food Ideas #5: Depending on your budget
and how adventurous your guests are, camel, crocodile and snake
meat can be purchased online and sometimes at your local Middle
Eastern markets. It is likely that the meat is too pricey to create
any large dish from the meat, however allowing enough for each guest
to try a bite sized hors doeuvres with the meat can be quite
exciting! It would be more for novelty and can really add some zing
to the spirit of the party!
