Casablanca theme party. Any ideas?

Our engagement party is going to be casablanca (the movie) themed. Does anyone have ideas for food/decorations/etc. Thank you so much!!

Casablanca is in Morocco, so Moroccan foods, of course; Moroccan dress (especially accessories such as hats and shoes) mixed with vintage '40s dress (suits and tuxes, wonderful dresses, and trench-coats); and mellow western-style music from the '30s and '40s (jazz and torch songs). The movie is set in the '40s, so WWII-era party and dinner foods can be mixed with the Moroccan-themed foods.

A few Morroccan/North African accessory housewares (jugs & pottery, brass trays, carpets and mats, including on the walls, etc), along with some "colonial style" furniture and accessories, as you'd see in the movie. Folding-screen room dividers, in Moroccan-looking designs. Ceiling fans, if possible. Hmmm -- were there potted palms in the movie? Or you could just have palm plants to suggest the hot climate. A piano, of course. A few large-ish B&W photos of airplanes from the '30s-'40s on the walls. Candles in glass on the tables, maybe alternating between tables with small electric lamps with shades. Candle-lit lanterns hung all around the room or hall -- no other lights, except what fire regs require. Small flower arrangements on the tables -- see the movie for ideas.

You might pay close attention to the types of drinks served in the movie, and use those -- but also notice the types of glassware used, they may be a detail you want to include. Otherwise, any sort of standard cocktails from that era would be good. How are you running the bar?

If it's open, maybe you could have a period-style poster-sized menu of '40s cocktails made up, and have 2-3 copies posted at the bar. That way, people can order what they really want, but the movie is suggested with the posters.

If it's a pay-by-the-drink bar, maybe give each guest a credit chit for one '40s cocktail, free (the list of them goes on the chit), and they can order anything else at their own cost as usual.

These are just random ideas -- I haven't actually watched the movie within the last 5 years or so. But look at the movie for your best inspiration, and pay attention to even the littlest details.

And congratulations!
