Hey, don't get us wrong, there is nothing better than sipping a tropical drink and then seeing how low you can go in a classic limbo contest. But we also like to mix and match our limbo decorations with other party themes and categories to create a one-of-a-kind luau event.
How to Decorate for a Luau Party
So, first things first. You have to decorate for a luau party to get everyone in the luau spirit. Check out our decorations for a

You can decide to go as big as you dare when decorating for a luau with inflatable palm trees, grass table skirting, and floral door curtains that will help your guests feel like they are leaving the real world behind and stepping into a tropical luau paradise. To really make decorating for a luau party stress free, pick up the Luau Decorating Kit which includes all of the decorations you will need to decorate two to three rooms (depending on size) for a luau theme party. Your mind will think of many ways to use this luau decorating ideas in your home or office. Lots of tropical decorations around will always have the summer months on your mind. If it's already summer, these decorations will be the perfect in-season supplies. However, if you're mired in the cold winter months, get some tropical decorations up and around your home or office to warm things up a bit!
Welcome to the Jungle
Let your guests go a little bananas by bringing some jungle decorations into your Luau party theme. In tropical climates the jungle is right next to the beach, so why not combine the two. The easiest way to transform your entire room into a jungle is by putting up the Jungle Scene Setter decorations. This set will totally transform your room into a deep green tropical rain forest, which just happens to be a perfect place for a luau party! A great idea to incorporate with the jungle decorations would be to have a sounds of the jungle CD playing in the stereo. Sounds of the jungle and jungle-themed decorations will transform the location into what seems like a real, thriving jungle.
Luau Baby Shower
Apparently so many people wanted to have a luau theme baby shower a company actually started making Hula Baby shower decorations. Instead of using the classic blue or pink baby shower decorations, you can now host a luau baby shower theme with the help of these
luau baby streamers and Luau Baby Shower Invitations. Pick up a box of leis to hand out to every guest and you are well on your way to hosting a non-boring baby shower.
The best part of throwing a luau theme baby shower, is that you can reuse all of the luau decorations for your next luau party (unlike all of those pastel pink teddy bears you are stuck with after the girl baby shower). Everything from
raffia table skirting to the Aloha banners can be used again for your next luau theme party. Maybe a luau graduation event?
Luau Party Games
Of course every luau party needs a limbo game. The classic game of limbo is a cross of competition and dancing line. Pick up the PartyCheap's limbo kit if you want an authentic limbo set made of bamboo, and it even includes a CD of limbo music. See who can go the lowest with this classic and fun party game that is sure to please! Make sure the winner receives some sort of trophy recognition. Be creative when thinking of the prize!
Another fun luau party idea is the
Tiki Head Pinata. While you're eating and drinking take turns taking a whack at this fun pinata! And since we mentioned drinking and tiki idols, you really need to grab some plastic bamboo to serve up an authentic luau beverage to your game playing guests. In the pinata, you could put the traditionally candy, or you could implement more theme-related items. You will want anything colorful, or related to traditional Hawaiian delicacies, like coconuts and pineapples.
Luau Party Food
A traditional Hawaiian luau is held on a beach where they serve up tropical drinks and often a pig roast. Well since you aren't on the beach, we will let you pass on the pig roast. So make the next best thing, pigs-in-a-blanket. Or hot dogs would do just as well. Also make sure you serve up lots of tropical fruit such as pineapple, mango, coconut along with some beach inspired drinks with little umbrellas in them to help your guest fantasize that they are actually on a beach getting ready to do the limbo.
