Planning a Hawaiian party? You're in luck. Hawaiian parties have some of the most beautiful decorations in the world and you'll find it all right here. Whether it's a summer barbecue or an excuse for some winter fun, there's no end to the decoration possibilities. With balloons, personalized banners and tableware galore, there's no limit to what you can create.
What's a birthday party without balloons? You can easily give your decorations a leg-up with this dazzling balloon display. Place them on chairs and around the room to get each and every guest in the Hawaiian party groove. You can even tie them outside to let everyone know where the party is!
A banner is one of the easiest party decoration solutions there is, especially when you can personalize it! Make the guest of honor feel extra special when she sees her name up in huge letters on the celebration banner hanging on the wall. Seeing her face light up like that is worth every penny.
Translated, Luau means “feast,” so you'd better be ready to feed your guests a delightful spread. And to go along with this meal, you'll need a reliable set of luau-themed tableware. Find plates, cups, napkins and plastic ware to perfectly outfit your table for the big day.
You have the decorations all in order, so now it's time to plan activities! The party doesn't start until there are fun games to play and pictures to take. No need to brainstorm a long list of activities because it's all planned out for you here. Start with a piñata, the classic party favorite. Then, entertain the kids with activity placemats and opportunities to dress up and participate in a fun photo shoot. Start creating memories that will last a lifetime!
At a seaside luau, the sea creatures always wish they could come out and join the fun. Why not invite them? This seahorse-shaped piñata will fit perfectly with your Hawaiian theme. Fill it with treats and watch the kids' faces brighten with joy as they chase their prizes around the room.
Keep the kids busy at the table with this Hawaiian Girl activity placemat. Fun printed games and puzzles will occupy your guests for hours as they work together to color and complete the placemat. With boxes of crayons already included, you'll have everything you need to get the party going.
Don't feel like getting super creative with your photography skills? There's no complicated expertise necessary with this fun and engaging Hula Girl photo prop. Everyone at the party can pretend they're at an authentic Hawaiian Luau with this colorful cardboard prop.
What better way to take pictures than in an authentic hula costume? A lei, headband and two bracelets will have each little guest feeling like they're floating in the Hawaiian breeze. As an added bonus, put on a hula video and teach the girls some traditional Hawaiian dance moves!
Try incorporating these fun phrases into your invitations, DIY decorations, and other pieces of the party!
"'La hanau' - birthday"
"'Ho'omaika'I'ana' - congratulations"
"'Mahalo' - Thank you"
"'A hui hou' - until we meet again"
"'E Komo Mai' - Welcome!"
"'Aloha au ia 'oe' - I love you"
Make sure your guests hold onto their amazing memories when you send them home with a thoughtful parting treat. Start with flower leis and stickers and end with entire filled favor boxes. The other parents will be in awe of your party planning skills and thoughtfulness when they see the smile on their child's face when the party's over. From filled favor boxes to stickers and toys, you'll have each girl begging her parents for her own Hawaiian luau!
Filled Favor Box
The party may be over, but the luau fun lives on in this filled party favor box. A mini activity book and crayons will continue to entertain each guest long after they've left your party. A pretty nail polish color and bracelet are just what each guest needs to capture her true hula girl essence!
Get the party started by placing a lei around each party guest's neck as they enter the party area in true Hawaiian fashion. Then when the party's over, let them take an extra lei home to someone special! They'll love having the opportunity to share some Hawaiian love.
Kids love stickers, so there's no going wrong with these Hawaiian-themed hula stickers. Use them as prizes for games throughout the party or simply include them in a treat bag. Either way, each guest will love placing a hula sticker on her backpack, locker or lunchbox.
