Luau Party Decor

There's nothing quite as exciting as decorating for a theme party. Whether it's a tiki party or a Hawaiian luau, the decorations are key to setting the mood. Start by deciding where you want to host your luau party. It can be a backyard wedding reception, a pool party, a bridal shower BBQ, or even a sweet baby shower. Once you have the location, it's time to let your creativity flow!

luau party: flamingos, palm trees, and tropical elements

For a pool party, add beach balls, flamingo floaties, and inflatable palm trees to enhance the tropical atmosphere. Use tropical flowers and leaves to create an exotic ambiance. If you're hosting a more formal soirée, you can add string lights and paper lanterns to create an inviting setting.

Don't forget to incorporate fun elements like seashells and surfboards into your luau party decor. Look for table covers featuring palm trees or Hawaiian flowers. Dot the table with seashells and starfish for a beachy vibe. You can even use a surfboard as a table or as a prop for a photo booth.

To welcome your guests, present each one with a flower lei at the door. Use real flower leis for an upscale event or faux silk versions for a more casual and affordable option. Encourage your guests to dress up in their best Hawaiian shirts, hula skirts, and flip-flops to add to the festive spirit of the party. The themed attire will make party games like the limbo even more memorable!

Luau Party Food

What's a luau party without delicious food? Whether you're roasting a whole pig in an underground pit or keeping it lighter, the food is a crucial part of the luau experience. Luckily, planning a mouth-watering luau menu doesn't have to be overwhelming.

Traditional luau foods include poke (a raw fish dish), poi (a starchy paste made from taro), and haupia (a sweet coconut dessert). The star of the meal is usually the Kalua pig, which is traditionally roasted in an underground oven. However, you can adapt and choose other tasty meats or even create a vegan menu to suit your guests' preferences.

Start the party with a light appetizer like fried pita crisps and tropical salsa featuring mangoes and pineapple. Serve grilled fruit skewers with pineapple and peaches as a refreshing option.

For the main course, consider serving surf and turf if you're aiming for a fancy luau theme. Grilled shrimp is a great option, along with grilled pineapple. You can serve them as part of a heartier rice dish or on skewers for easy eating. Other main dish ideas include poke bowls and slow cooker pulled pork. For an afternoon event, pulled pork sandwiches make a delicious finger food option.

When it comes to serving the food, use plates and tableware featuring hibiscus flowers or opt for the natural touch of banana leaves and palm leaves. Wooden tableware adds a rustic feel, while bamboo options bring a touch of the Polynesian islands to your celebration. For a child's birthday party, you can use napkins and paper plates featuring popular Polynesian characters. For an adult event, look for serving ware with flowers, bright colors, and other tropical elements.

And let's not forget the drinks! A luau party isn't complete without a refreshing blended beverage topped with an umbrella. Serve classic drinks like mai tais, daiquiris, and rum slushies in coconut cups, and don't forget to garnish them with fresh fruit.
