III. Party Ideas For An Enchanting, Tropical Island Party

Aloha! Here are a few ideas for an enchanting, tropical island paradise. The natives are restless...start planning your exotic luau today. Wikiwiki! (Hawaiian for hurry!)

Welcome each guest with an "aloha" and a kiss on the cheek. Hand a lei to all guests, and a silk flower for the women to put in their hair.

Other nice touches are grass skirts to wear or as table decorations.

Think balmy and exotic! Bright and colorful is sure to set a tropical ambiance.


  • Palm fronds and palm trees should line the area. You can create grass huts out of grocery bags by cutting it into thin strips, and hanging on a card table.
  • Nylon fish nets and seashells are a great accent. You will want to make sure you have plenty of tropical flowers, whether fresh or silk.
  • Line the area with brightly colored fish and inflatable palm trees. The table decor can include tiki statues, as well as tiki torches for an evening ambiance.

Food & Drink

Here are some ideas for enticing cuisine:

  • Spiced pork
  • Rice
  • Steamed vegetables
  • Barbeque foods
  • Fresh fruits- pineapple, strawberries, melons, papayas
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Crab salad
  • Roasted bananas
  • Macadamia nuts
  • Hawaiian sweet bread

The best drinks include Margaritas, Mai Tais, Pina Coladas, Bahama Mamas, and Frozen Daiquiris.

Get your cameras ready for limbo and hula dancing contests!

I hope this helps spark some fun ideas for an upcoming tropical theme party.
