A Hawaiian Luau is probably one the best party themes you can come up with for all ages! Beaches, coconuts, palm trees… a great party can really “take” you there! Here are some great Hawaiian Party Ideas.
A fun invitation idea begins with taking cardstock and folding it in half. Draw or stamp waves flowing across the front. On top of the waves, arrange 5 or 6 flip-flop or surfboard stickers as though dancing. On the inside, write out some catchy phrases like “Aloha” or “Surf’s Up Dude” along with your party details. There are also some really neat ready-made invitations with beach-y themes, too. Remind your guests to bring swimsuits, towels, and sunscreen.
You can really set the scene for your Hawaiian Luau with beach-themed decorations. Decorate tables with Hibiscus Flower Petals, serve drinks in coconuts shells, and use bright colored tableware (think tropical reds, pinks, yellows, and greens!). If you are able, go all out with a Tiki Hut!
Your entrée choices here are nearly endless – just think sweet, tangy, and exotic. Pulled pork with honey BBQ (you can find ready-filled tubs at your local grocer), fruit kebabs with a piná colada fruit dip, sweet and sour meatballs with pineapple, and vegetable strips with dressing will delight the intended’s appetite.
As your guests arrive, honor them with a flowery lei and a name tag with their Hawaiian name (there is an awesome Hawaiian Name Translator. Of course, water activities make an excellent party choice. Go wild with slip-n-slides, pool games, sprinklers, and water balloons! Don’t forget the limbo! Set the stage with some cool Hawaiian music and see how low you can go!
Adults and kids alike will have a blast at your Hawaiian Party!
