the other day i had the pleasure of attending a henna, the bride was half Algerian (Mum side) and half Libyan.

she wore a traditional Algerian henna gown, red and gold with a crown so cool. the room was a mixture of Libyan and Algerian ladies and many of the Algerians where married to Libyans.

I've taken some photos of the henna stuff to share with you all:

a party wouldn't be a party without the tea and coffee

and the sweets that accompany it it was very similar to how Libyans have there henna, the candles, henna paste etc...
she placed henna in the middle of the candle holder

and then mixed it with perfume, first time i ever see this

and then of course the candles where lit
and before we left the handed us little favours
it was a nice night mashallah.
