Plan ahead to decide how you will divide up teams- men, women, coed, or couples. Dividing the teams up into coed groups tends to allow for less competition and more fun.
Hand out genuine survivor buffs or use colored bandanas by tribe. Be sure to videotape the entire event and make copies later for all the guests to take home.
Survivor Party Supplies
Decorate with tiki torches, luminaries, and "most coveted"- the immunity idol.
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.
Be sure to cover your patio umbrellas with raffia. You can also use a tropical scene that covers a long wall rather than individual decorations.
Fishnets 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 Hawaiian themed posters and art.
Decorate with brightly colored fish and palm tree pinatas. Tiki statues make great table centerpieces. For the evening ambiance, tiki torches are a must.

Survivor Party Games- "Immunity Challenges"
Skip the tribal council- no one likes being voted out!
You can certainly get very creative with your survivor party theme, but most guests will participate if it's easy. Survivor t-shirts and Hawaiian shirts are nice and easy and will guarantee 100% participation. Guests may also choose to wear sarongs or beachcomber hats and sandals. Women get more accessories, with flowers in their hair and shell jewelry.
Personalize the Survivor party theme invitations to say Survivor _____ (group name, organization, neighborhood). Draw or include items such as tiki idols, tiki torches, palm trees, coconuts, etc. You can also glue shells or sand to the invitations.
Another great idea is to visit your local travel agency for Hawaiian travel brochures. Attach your invitation to the brochure to set the stage for your island paradise party.
Hawaiian & Caribbean music should be played in the background. Reggae and Caribbean music are also good to add to the mix. Even though Jimmy Buffett, isn't technically Pacific Rim, he is well known for a tropical paradise theme!
Food & Drink
Here are some ideas for enticing cuisine:
Fresh fruits- pineapple, strawberries, melons, papayas
Hawaiian sweet bread
The best drinks include Margaritas, Mai Tais, Pina Coladas, Bahama Mamas, and Frozen Daiquiris. Be sure to have Hawaiian punch on hand for the non-alcoholic set as well as water for all.
Drinks should be served in pineapple or coconut cups to keep with the theme. They can be found in your local dollar store when they become available.
I hope the survivor party theme page helped spark some fun ideas for your upcoming celebration!
