Luau Party Tips

Despite the lingering cold temperatures, it's officially the spring season and you know what that means - warm weather, sunny skies and summer just around the corner. But what if you could start the summer early? The good news is: you can! To wash away the winter blues and get into the summer spirit, consider throwing a Hawaiian luau party. We've collected the following tips to help you plan the perfect summer bash. Aloha! 

Send guests invitations decorated with tropical flowers and bright colors to set the mood. For added creativity, consider sending invitations in the shape of a sandal or coconut. 

To transport your guests to the Hawaiian islands, include decorations that represent Hawaiian culture. The following is a list of decorations that are sure to do the trick:
  1. Tiki lights
  2. Lei necklaces
  3. Sea shells 
  4. Grass skirt tablecloths
  5. Bright colored flowers
For your menu, select items that are typically associated with Hawaii. Examples include a cucumber salad, egg rolls, ribs, coconut or pineapple cake, and of course, a tropical punch to wash it down. If you're looking to stick with your own favorite foods, consider a buffet where you lay out the food in a tropical design. For example, present your favorite fruits in the shape of a palm tree. 

To keep guests entertained, include activities such as sand art, hula hooping and limbo. If you anticipate a guest list full of children, consider a station where kids can design their own grass skirts or make their own lei necklaces.
