Embellished and ornamental, extraordinary and unexpected, guests enthusiastically embraced the Moroccan theme at the 47th Annual Meridian House Ball.
Arriving at the Ball from over two dozen Embassy-hosted dinners and the Gala Dinner at the adjoining White-Meyer House, DCs social set were treated to a grand dessert buffet overflowing with Moroccan-inspired sweets and gorgeous florals.
n the Linden Grove, the trees were decked with pierced tin lanterns, colorful parasols and moody purple and amber lights. At the Fruit Souk, stalls were draped with antique Moroccan kilims and decorated with intricately carved melon lanterns.
In the dance tent, a stylish Moroccan club and Hookah lounge was set with fretwork screens, mirrored bar fronts, colorful lanterns, plush pillows and embroidered hassocks where guests puffed and partied into the wee hours.
