1 Turk­ish De­light— Serve Turk­ish cof­fee, mezze and go­zleme. Lay out car­pets and cush­ions; set up hookahs and, if you can, have a dervish dancer. 2 African Beat— All you’ll need is a pro­fes­sional bongo player to get your guests danc­ing. Dec­o­rate with wooden idols and tribal prints, and set up a bar­be­cue. 3 A Vin­tage Af­fair— The ’ 20s were a glamurous decade; turn up the jazz mu­sic, pull out your art deco pieces and or­gan­ise faux feather and pearl ac­ces­sories for your guests. Serve mini sand­wiches, spiced nuts, gin and cham­pagne. 4 A French Evening— Have a black­board an­nounc­ing patè and steak frites near the din­ing area and bud vases on side ta­bles to recre­ate a French Bistro feel. You could also play some Edith Piaf sym­phonies to cre­ate a Parisian am­bi­ence. 5 A Chi­nese Sit Down— Best for a small group— bring in serv­ing bowls with Chi­nese pat­terns, chop­sticks and ta­ble mats. Dec­o­rat­ing the room with Chi­nese lanterns will trans­port you to Bei­jing.
