Throw A Great Hawaiian Bash With These Simple Steps

Nowadays, you can find the game of limbo as a regular activity at most party events, but originally, this was a very well-known Hawaiian tradition. If you are planning to have a game of limbo at your next party, why not go all the way and turn into a Hawaiian theme? It does not take much to give the party theme a bit of a change, and if you have reserved a location with a pool, you can easily recreate a Hawaiian atmosphere with the following steps:

The decorations – what does the word ‘Hawaiian’ remind you of? The answer should be flora, flowers, the beach, water and coconuts. Accordingly, if the decorations for the party revolve around these basic descriptions, you can be sure that your party will have a Hawaiian atmosphere. You can buy more dedicated decorations such as a hibiscus table skirt, for example, but know that plenty of flowers and coconuts can also do the job if your budget is tight. With regards to colours, make sure to stick to bright and warm hues.

Costume party – in addition to the party decorations in Australia, you can also have the guests dress for the part. Hawaiian clothing is not about outrageous costumes, but is actually very simple outfits that most of your guests will definitely have in their closets. From the usual swimwear to floral prints and skirts, which anyone will have, to the more advanced Hawaiian traditional outfits (which you can easily buy online, but one would not usually own them), your guests have a variety of choices. Also, make sure that your guests come with flip-flops, and you can also hand out floral headwear and flower necklaces (these are known as ‘lei’ by the way) at the entrance if you want to go out all the way!

Food and drink – the basics to Hawaiian-themed snacks is basically seafood. Seafood dishes of any variety is good, but you can also have specific Hawaiian dishes such as mahi-mahi and salmon, or even serve sushi. Drinks should include smoothies and cocktails; you can use coconuts as containers, and even serve coconut water (which is a very nutritious drink!).

Lighting – to have the correct atmosphere, you also need to focus on the lighting aspect. Instead of having artificial lighting, go the natural route and have Tiki torches. You can also have scented candles to add to the lighting (and give a soothing aroma as well) – for example, place them on every table and have guests light them if they wish. Since you will be lighting fires, make sure to also have a couple of fire extinguishers at the scene just in case.
