Some ideas for a luau themed party are to have guests wear Hawaiian prints and provide them with a selection of leis. Another idea is to set the mood by placing tiki torches around the party space and playing songs from Hawaiian singers.
For food ideas at a luau party, serve coleslaw and a variety of fruit salads in colorful bowls. Serve fresh fruit in a hollowed-out pineapple, and provide guests fruity, refreshing drinks with a variety of cocktail umbrellas. Play a round of limbo at the party, and decorate the party area with seashells, bright colors and grass table skirting.
