My middle daugther wanted a unique party theme for her recent 9th birthday. She is fun and vibrant, and I wanted the party theme to reflect her personality. We put our heads together, and came up with the idea of a tropical Hawaiian Luau Party.
Here is the snack table, complete with a pineapple “palm tree”. I used a yellow and white tablecloth, and drapped fishing netting over it to give it an island vibe. The bottom part is a bunch of kid-size grass skirts that were cut and then pinned in place with safety pins. The background is two tropical backdrops side by side, that were found at the Dollar Tree. Can’t beat the price at $1.25 each.
In keeping with the luau theme, guests were adorned with a Hawaiian lei upon arrival. It was so cute hearing the kids greet guests with “aloha”.
Pina colada time!!!!!!!!! (For the adults only). Friends and family seemed to really enjoy this yummy treat.
Here is the menu for the kids.
These pinapple cupcakes were AMAZING! Who knew you could just add crushed pineapple to angel food cake mix for this super easy cupcakes? I just love these surf board platters that were found at the Dollar Tree used to display the treats.
For the palm tree, I cut the core out of the pineapples, and then stuffed two of the straightest unpeeled bananas I could find inside the three pineapples to stand them up straight. I knew I wanted to cut up and eat the remaining pineapple (waste not; want not) after the party, so I had to come up with something edible to put in there. Lol. It worked out well and stayed in place. I suppose you could also use dowling too.
Here’s a sneak peek at my next blog post. It was so much fun, and I still can’t get over how much the kids loved it.
I’ll be back again next week, to show the full Tiki Bar tutorial. See you then everyone 🙂
