Luau Party Ideas

A Luau-style party is a great sweet sixteen theme and is sure to be a hit, no matter the season. Bring Hawaii to you! You can plan a memorable Hawaiian Luau party with these tips. This is a great way to get your friends together and have a hula-swinging time. Here are tips and ideas to make your luau party the talk of the town.

A Luau Party is a Perfect Sweet Sixteen Party Idea

A Luau is a feast in Hawaii. The party fare includes a pig, poi, salmon, and beer, music and hula dancers. If you do not have a pool, and do not leave near water, you can host the party in your back yard. Invite guests to wear their flip flops, bikinis, shorts and flowered shirts, or a cute sundress. The mood should be relaxed with soothing Hawaiian music playing in the back ground, plenty of colorful decorations: think potted Hibiscus, silk or paper flowers, bright streamers, inflatable palm trees and fish, and lots of good food! Uninvite mosquitoes and flies by using citronella oil as fuel in your tiki torches.

If your party is in the evening, turn off the outdoor lights and set up string lights, tiki torches and candles. Fun string light designs, like surf boards and parrots, can be found at a local store or ordered online through a party supply store. One online party supply is called Shindigz. Floating candles in the swimming pool look fantastic. You can also take white Christmas lights and put them in backyard trees and drape them over bushes and plants.

Use tropical-themed table coverings on the serving tables. To add more flair to the serving tables, add some colorful silk flowers. If you have some sea shells, place these on the serviing tables as well, to round out the theme. Use whole pineapples and coconuts to hold down the table cloths or nets. Hula skirts make fantastic party decorations. Hang them on the serving tables to add extra tropical flair! If you have a surfboard, bring that out of storage and set it up against the wall.
