Invitations:

The invitations let your guests know that they will want to be there and join in the fun. Add some Confetti in your cards to spur on some anticipation for the party! Don’t forget to encourage your guests to drag out any theme related items they may have and wear or bring them to the party.

As an alternative, consider attaching a computer-generated or hand-written tag to a Lei, a beach ball, a Luau Bucket Hat, a pair of Tropical Sunglasses  or an uninflated luau balloon - use your imagination! Use curling ribbon, satin ribbon or pipe cleaners to attach.

In your invitation, encourage your guests to come dressed in tropical style. As the party’s host, dress up, and you will be surprised to see how many of your guests will enjoy joining you. Slip into a light and airy sarong and have a few Hula Skirts on hand for your unprepared guests! Decorate them even further with
Leis, Luau Print Bucket Hats and Hibiscus Bucket Hats .

Party Decorations

Setting the tone for your party can be easy with some basic decorating tips. Choosing your colors is the starting point to creating an inviting atmosphere. Choose one or two main colors and build around these. If you choose to use only one color for your decorating, try to add little touches of another color or a lighter or darker shade of the same color to create a more pleasing effect. Use colors that relate to your theme. When using a "theme", choose basic colors, then add some fun props related to your theme to create a spectacular party setting!

Table Decorations:

Remember the tops of the tables provide you with a very large surface area and covering them with a tropical themed table cover is the easiest way to change the feel of a room.. It is also the most cost effective way to decorate.

You can further accessorize your table with Tropical or Luau themed birthday party ware, including: cups, plates, napkins, and cutlery, to create a focal point in a room. Don't go overboard with the theme related plates, cups, napkins and etc., adding some solid colored items that coordinate with your theme colors will provide you with a designer look. For example, if you are using a theme patterned cup, use a solid color napkin or visa versa. Remember you can use to much of a good thing.


Add a centerpiece that coordinates with your theme. Make your own centerpiece with these instructions:

 

HOW TO MAKE BALLOON PALM TREES

Balloon Palm Tree  

Make you own balloon palm trees (instructions for making a tabletop or standing palm tree).


Try one of the following ideas to liven up your table:

Unfold the napkins, pinch each in the center of the napkin, and place the center point in the bottom of each cup. This adds a decorative touch while the cups are still empty.

Napkins can be laid out on a serving table, or can be displayed at each place setting. Place napkins in the center of each place setting at an angle.

Tie napkins with curling ribbon and place in the center of each plate at an angle. The cutlery can also be added before the napkin is tied with ribbon.


Easy, Affordable Decorating!

Decorating with Luau Balloons , is an inexpensive but powerful way to transform your party area into a festive space in minutes. Tie balloon bouquets to the back of a chair, mailbox or your front door. Use balloon bouquets as centerpieces. Tie clusters of balloons everywhere. Balloon arches & columns are ideal for photo backdrops, entryways, and to hi-light different areas around your party room. Scatter balloons on the floor. Make balloon flowers and balloon fish. Swag balloons across a ceiling. See tips & instructions for making balloon decorations below. Make your own tabletop or 7 ft balloon palm tree.

Use a Helium Tank to fill balloons. Tie curling ribbon to balloons and group them together. (Odd numbers look best: 3, 5, or 7.) Place groupings of balloons around the party site.

Party Favors

Traditional loot bags filled with treats and sweets will always be a big hit with partygoers. Add some luau themed favors too.

Rather than waiting until your guests are making their exit to give them a party favor, you can give your guests favors during the party, which will add color and fun! Favors can do double-duty at any party, as they provide perfect tabletop accents that can be used as decorations. Select favors specific to your child's luau theme and place them on the tables.


Party Food

As the excitement is so high at children’s birthday parties, most children under the age of 10 will eat very little and the waste can be disheartening. Schedule your party during a time when parents will not expect that their children will eat a meal and serve only cake, ice cream, and a few other munchies such as mini chocolate chip cookies, pretzels, and grapes (cut in half for toddlers).  

Bakeries today are turning out cakes that are gorgeous, and ever more creative. However, many of us still prefer the tradition of baking our own cakes to recognize special times in the lives of those who are most important to us. Starting with the right equipment will give you perfect results every time. To bake any cake, or for just about any shape you could want to bake, we recommend that you invest in three special pans, and a few other items. Trust us…you'll use these things over and over again.

  • 16" round commercial grade pan – straight sides

  • 18" X 13" rectangle commercial grade pan – straight sides

  • Wilton™ ball pan

  • Flexible metal spatulas – one with a narrow tip for small areas, and one with a large tip to smooth frosting on large flat areas.

  • Paste food colors

  • Pastry bag and couplers

  • Cake decorating tips – several (2-3) writing tips, and a star tip for starters.

  • Cake boards

All of these items can be purchased at specialty baking stores, and many craft supply stores now carry them.
