New party trend? The Bahraini ambassador hired a henna artist for her fete; maybe you should too!
So you thought your holiday party was special because it had a chocolate fountain. For a grand reception celebrating her country's National Day, the ambassador from Bahrain Houda Ezra Nonoo provided her guests with a henna artist. (Also, a lavish buffet of lamb, fish, saffron risotto. And: a chocolate fountain.)
Guests arriving at the Ritz-Carlton ballroom were intrigued by the woman at the back of the room bent over one wrist after another in intense concentration. Was she a palm reader? When they came closer, they saw that Hadia Abul-Qasim was painting intricate black designs along any willing arm. A line of women quickly formed. The ambassador told us the henna artist has been a popular fixture at her parties for the past few years. Does she get herself decorated? "I just don't have the patience," Nonoo said, "to let it dry."
