Luau Birthday Invitations - Need ideas for a Luau Party? In this article you will find ideas for the invitations, decorations, games & activities, and food suggestions for your luau theme party. This is a fun party for any age adult or even a child. The Luau is the most popular summer theme party. You can make yours as simple or elaborate as you like. Luau is a fun party for the pool or beach.
Start off with fun invitations. Place a homemade invitation in a small bottle along with a little sand. Hand deliver the invitations about two weeks in advance of the party. Request your guest to wear colorful casual clothing suitable for a luau. Greet your guest at the door with colorful leis.
Decorating for a luau party is easy! Most luau parties are held outside, but if you are having yours inside, just apply these same ideas. One of the most important decorations is tiki lanterns. These can be in the form of a garland or lights, depending if the party is in the day or at night. Other decorations can include: scene setters, ceiling danglers, inflatable palm trees (or lots of large potted plants), silk flowers, sea shells, pinata, luau theme balloons, and lots of colorful balloons. Always have Hawaiian music playing softly in the background to set the mood.
Decorate each table with a tiki candle and a few sea shells. The food table will look really cool with a raffia table skirt. Your paper tableware in a luau theme, matched with solids, can make a striking decoration on its own. A fun idea is to wrap cutlery in a napkin and use a cheap pair of sunglasses as the napkin ring.
Party Games & Activities
Luau party games & activities should always include a limbo contest! What's a luau without one? If you have the resources, provide a couple of hula skirts for a hula contest. If your guests like to dance, play beach music and have a shag dance! Another fun idea is a hula hoop contest. How long has it been since you played with a hula hoop? These are usually easy to find in any discount store early in the summer season, so you will need to get yours early.
What to eat? Keep it simple. Prepare shish kabobs on the grill, a fruit and cheese tray, crackers, chips, and other simple foods. If money is tight, have a pot luck luau! Don't forget the cute little drink picks and pina coladas in coconut cups!
To sum it up, decorate with tiki lanterns and/or garlands, balloons, candles, and other luau theme decorations. Use a raffia table skirt, tiki candle, sea shells, and luau theme tableware to decorate your table. After a simple meal and a pina colada, enjoy activities such as limbo and hula hoops. Find out who can dance the best hula to Blue Hawaii! A luau should be a fun party with plenty of time to relax and socialize. I hope these ideas will help you have the perfect luau party!
