Morocco is a Muslim country so Christmas isn't on the holiday radar. However, there is no reason you can't bring Moroccan inspiration to your Christmas celebrations! Whether you're after an Arabian nights feel, a party based on The Office's Moroccan celebration, or a bohemian Christmas party I've put together some great ideas for you.
Decorating a Moroccan Christmas tree means you'll need some beautiful ornaments. You can purchase pre-made ornaments but also seek out individual artisans on sites like Etsy that are making special one-of-a-kind ornaments for your collection. Mix and match lights, stars, and special ornaments for a Moroccan inspired tree.
Moroccan Christmas Lights
It's really not a celebration without the twinkle lights! There are lots of options when it comes to lighting; from electric lights to Moroccan lanterns with candles inside. The question is just what feel you want to have.Gold Moroccan White LED Globe String Lights Gold Crystal Moroccan Candle Lantern Bowl
Moroccan Christmas Mantel Decorations
I am insanely jealous of anyone that has a fireplace with a mantel to decorate! But, if you're one of the lucky ones you'll need a few things to deck out your design. Whatever you do make sure you pick up one of these gorgeous stockings made in the style of Moroccan wedding blankets – they're so gorgeous!NEST Fragrances 3-Wick Candle- Moroccan Amber Small Teardrop Lantern Driftwood Nativity Scene with Creche Willow Tree Shepherd and Stable Animals, 4-piece set Olive Wood Animal Statue Camel Wood
You can't celebrate without having a great meal. Make your Moroccan celebration complete with some of these recipes to make your party extra special.

Moroccan Orange and Black Olive Salad with Argan Dressing
Winter in Morocco is full of citrus and this salad will add a pop of color and flavor to your Christmas menu.
These are SO easy to make and you can stuff them with just about anything you'd like. Make them sweet or savory there's no wrong answer. Perfect for when you need a last minute appetizer.
Usually this soup is made during Ramadan but it's also good for any winter holiday.
Traditional Christmas cookies are always part of holiday preparations. Mix in some of these Moroccan cookies (or Moroccan biscuits for my British friends), for your party. Keep in mind Moroccan desserts aren't overly sweet but they do use good quality ingredients, especially honey and nuts.
Usually these cookies are made in a much larger form but the smaller version is perfect for holiday parties.
If you have someone who is gluten free that you need cookies for, try this recipe. Don't skip any steps and they'll turn out great.
These are THE Moroccan cookie. They're not easy to make but they'll certainly make a statement on your holiday table.
