Top 3 tips to transform your home for your upcoming luau party

Date Created: 01/25/2012

Top 3 tips to transform your home for your upcoming luau party. In the dead of winter, the frigid weather and gray skies can certainly put a damper on your mood, so it can be difficult to throw together a theme party that will capture your guests' imaginations. What everyone is really dreaming about during this season is escaping to a tropical climate, but you don't need to pack up and jet off to a sandy beach in the tropics. A luau party at home is a wonderful way to showcase your decorative ability and give your guests a reprieve from the winter doldrums outdoors.

1. Bring the beach indoors. It may take a bit of extra effort, but adding a sandy beach to the inside of your venue will be something your guests will talk about for years. Invest in a large tarp and spread white sand all around the main communal area. Encourage your guests to come in their sandals and flip-flops so they can feel the sensation of sand underneath their feet for the first time in months! You can help perk up the rest of the room by adding personalized banners, balloons and streamers in fun and festive tropical hues.

2. Proper attire. Turn up the thermostat a bit to make it feel like you're in a warmer climate and encourage your guests to break out their summer attire. Hawaiian shirts and shorts are perfect for guys, while sundresses and skirts are safe options for the ladies. You can also give your guests a colorful lei when they walk in the door - these make for excellent party favors and they're the traditional way to welcome someone to a luau.

3. Party activities. There are countless party activities you can choose from with an island theme, so start off with a rousing game of limbo. Additionally, you can hold a hula hoop contest to see who can keep it going the longest. A fashion show is another fabulous idea that can help you and your guests choose who had the best tropical outfit of the evening. You can use personalized chocolate bars and cookie tin favors as rewards for your winners.

With a few decorative changes and dazzling luau party supplies, you'll be well on your way to hosting an unforgettable bash. It's just the kind of party theme your guests need to unwind after a long and dreadful winter.
