Luau Party Planning-Bring the Tropical Islands Home
by: James Craven

Luau party planning is an excellent idea to move forward with. If you love the idea of flowers, bright colors, Hawaiian music, grass skirts, tiki torches and luau or hula dancers you are in for the time of your life. It's the ultimate tropical illusion set perfectly in your home or yard and would make you the hit of the neighborhood. So go ahead and take your planning to the next stage because this article is dedicated solely on how to make your tropical island dreams a reality.

Party planning is best if taken one step at a time and luau party planning is no different. Your first step should be in creating a checklist to keep track of all the key factors, including: budget, venue, guest list, food and decorations. Once you have created your checklist, you must decide on a budget that is workable. You can keep the price tag relatively cheap, if kept at home and your guest list is under 25. If you plan on having a large party you might want to consider defraying some of the cost by asking some of your guests to bring some of the party items, i.e. food and drink.

A luau calls for a creative invitation. You may want to think about having them professionally made, giving you the choice between some already prepared invites. Or if you had something special in mind, have them created per your imagination. You could also go online and have them sent out via e-mail. There are some great services that provide excellent choices for any type of party. If you decide to craft them yourself go with bright colors and maybe a picture of a hula dancer. Try and create the right mood. This will certainly catch the interest of those you are trying to invite.

Once you have the invitations sent out and the parties venue picked out, start choosing your decorations. You are going to want to have the right ambience set for the party. In order to create that festive atmosphere and Hawaiian feel use a lot of candles, balloons, and tropical adornments. Hawaiian music is an awesome mood setter too.

When choosing your food, go with the tropical variety. Some choices to consider are; pineapples, mango, coconuts, fruit drinks, tropical drinks, wine coolers, roast pork, veggie kabobs, rice and salad.

An important factor in making your luau party planning a success is by having the right entertainment. There are many ways to make this work. If you have the funds, hire a hula dancer for the evening. A Hawaiian band would also be a great choice. If you can't find one in your area you could always hire a DJ. There are also many other things you can do to bring the Big Island home. There are outdoor games you could play. A favorite would be crab football. The rules are similar to soccer except you use a large inflatable ball and everyone walks or tries to run like crabs. This is done by placing your hands down in front of you and scurrying around. It is fun to play and even more fun to watch. Another cool thing you can do is add body art. The kids will absolutely love the idea of having their faces painted and maybe some of the adults will too once they've had a few drinks.

Luau's are definitely a great time. You can expect a lot of playful fun and laughter. When the time comes and the guests arrive at the door give them the added surprise by wearing a grass skirt and a ring of flowers or lei around your neck. The cameras will surely snap. Then take it a step further and place a lei around their neck. It'll be your turn to take pictures and it'll be the beginning of a party long to be remembered.
