Aloha you all,
A Hawaiian luau is all about good food, relaxing, fun games to be shared with family and friends.
As they say,
Hawaii is not a state of mind, but a state of grace,
So light up the tiki torches for the party that Wows!!
As in Luau !!
I have always dreamt of traveling to Hawaii and enjoying the fresh ocean breeze under the palm tree. So, this time I thought, why not bring Hawaii to my kitty party !! Moreover, this is one such theme that every age group can enjoy. If you are new to this, find out how you can deck the party settings with these easy Diy decor and ideas to surprise your family and friends with this exotic theme.
What to wear ?? The Dress Code.
Tropical prints to floral dresses, Beach maxi’s to sarongs is all you can flaunt in a Luau. Tuck a flower behind your ear, wear a garland of flowers, and slip into the flip flops for a fun and relaxed look. Let yourself free and feel the breeze.
Decor for the Luau:
If you are planning an outdoor party- few palms, coconuts, beach towels, a pool, artificial garlands, beach balls, and toys will turn your space into Hawaaiin island. Due to weather conditions I had to plan an indoor party so, I assorted a DIY centerpiece with sand, some seashells, and a candle in a fishbowl, decorated with flowers, paper flowers, chalkboards, seashells, pineapples, palm leaves, etc.
A Hawaiian Luau is incomplete without garlands, Hibiscus flowers, Pineapples, and bamboo streamers. You can either make them at home, make the garlands with the flowers available, Get some hibiscus flowers to tuck onto your guest’s hair, make these bamboo streamers from craft papers, but if you are planning for a large scale party you can buy the stuff here.
Here are my Top Picks from Amazon
For the Hula Girl, all you need is one empty glass bottle, craft paper, some jute, and a glue gun. Start by cutting the craft papers from one side into thin strips. Glue them to the center of the bottle and wrap jute around the paper, decorate with paper flowers. Use it as a decor item or serve drinks to your guests.
To make the Tiki gods, collect three different sized cartons and simply wrap a brown paper to the carton. Once you are done with the wrapping, draw the tiki gods on the carton. Same with the aloha Board sign. Cut the different shapes from the carton box, wrap them with bright neon papers and paint the letters. Stick these signs to bamboo or a river cane.
Nothing better than fresh coconut water served chill in the coconut shell itself. Also, you can make Pinacolada if you want to add a punch to your party. Serve fresh smoothies, fresh-cut fruits such as pineapples, watermelons. For dessert, you can plan lemon, mango or orange souffle would be an ideal choice. If it’s an adult Luau, you can serve mocktails, cocktails, put up a barbeque and enjoy the feast with your friends.
Games for the Luau ;
No Hawaiian Luau is complete without games, you can set up the Hula-Hoop Contests, Tie the Knot, Beach Volleyball, Pineapple Bowling, The Hawaiian Limbo, The Hula Queen Contest, etc.
