Plan ahead by including at start time for the day and if needed include a reasonable end time as well. Sending out formal invitations should include information about the event, a response card with a self addressed stamp envelope for the guests. Remember that you don't have to spend big money to have a great event. When putting together your Luau Party you want to make it feel as authentic and exotic as possible with lots of Luau accessories. To this end you make use of Hawaiian and Polynesian foods, dťcor, music, favors and anything else you can think of. However, what if you canít think of anything? Its no secret that we sometimes draw a blank when under pressure, but donít worry youíll be able to find the right accessories with a little light reading.
The obvious accessories that come to mind for the Luau are Leis, grass skirts, tiki torches, and roast pig. These are great things to include at your party, but they only make up one level of the luau. You want the whole experience to have a touch of Luau to it.
Besides giving out Leis to the guests as they arrive, try using tropical flowers in all of your decoration. Use garlands of flowers around the deck or hung about the yard. Fill hollowed out cocoanut shells with bunches of flowers and use them as the centerpieces on tables. These flowers donít have to be fresh picked, you can use cloth or plastic flowers to great effect. To get that tropical fragrance in the air, try picking up several tropical flower scented air fresheners and place them subtly around the area.
Other accessories can extend to the tableware. Look for placemats, tablecloths, napkins and any cloth you will be using in tropical designs or that are brightly colored. Do the same for the silverware and cups. You can often find plastic silverware in bright colors that work well with a tropical theme. Cups can be real or plastic cocoanut shells. Do not forget to put that little umbrella into each drink.
Place tropical fruits around the area in plenty. Pineapples, Cocoanuts and Bananas go a long ways towards setting up the tropical theme. Musical Accessories like the Ukulele and drums can peak guests interest and add to the flavor. Donít forget to play some Hawaiian music.
A nice Luau game can be the free printable puzzles that can be played on the dinner table, while waiting for the dancing contest to begin. You can print a picture of a beach or palm trees this way there is two teams. These puzzles are free to print and kids love them.
