Summertime is a perfect time for a Luau-themed party! Invite everyone on your list to dress for the theme. Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, straw hats, bathing suits, moo moos, and flip flops are perfect attire for this traditional, island-state feast. Any of these accessories can easily be found at cappelsinc.com or in any of our 4 locations!
Be sure to keep your audience in mind as you plan! Will there be small children? Designate someone who will engage them in a few games. Pin the Tail on the Mermaid, Mermaid Paddleball, Face Painting, and Chalk Art are some ways for little ones to have fun at your Luau!
Teens may want to just hang with their friends but you can still make them feel especially welcome at your party by creating a fun drink or snack that is just for them! It’s also a great idea to have space for them to dance, swim, play sand volleyball, or just chill! Add a piñata to spice up the energy in the room.
Catering to adults only? Focus your efforts on the décor, food, and beverages with little umbrellas! A pig to roast or pulled pork and plenty of beverages, both hard and soft drinks, will be the main ingredients. Consider offering your guests one of the fruitier craft beers, punch, and refreshing pineapple or lime-based drinks. Don’t forget to have plenty of ice on hand to keep the drinks cold!
Set your appetizer table with fruit skewers that feature pineapple bites and maraschino cherries for a colorful and tasty treat! Use a star-shaped cookie cutter to create finger foods! Stuff them with cream cheese and pineapple mixture – or pineapple jelly for the younger crowd! Cappel’s has some great themed catering supplies!
You can find some great Hawaiian Luau music on YouTube! Try this link and get your tribe feelin’ the island groove: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ava45CrcDPQ.
An area that many hosts forget to decorate is the lavatory. Add some simple, tropical decorations such as palm tree or Hula Girl cutouts, a coconut man or tiki cutouts, and sea shells. Keep the theme alive wherever your guests may roam.
No matter what your next event, we guarantee you can find great deals at any of Cappel’s 4 locations for all your party supply needs. We hope to see you soon….
