Luau Party Ideas!

Get your luau party in a package right within this post! I've recently hosted a luau party, and it's so cute. Tiki   decorations are better for teenagers, rather than fish and flowers, so keep that in mind.

This was a picture from my party:

Games: Buy some cute prizes, like earrings and headbands for girls, or wallets and candy for boys.
Musical Beach Towels: You get it, it's just like musical chairs, but with beach towels to add a beachy touch.
Coconut Bowling: Should be on a flat surface, like an asphalt driveway. Buy plastic bowling pins, which sometimes comes with a plastic coconut. You can also use a real coconut.
Pool Tag/Sharks and Minnows
Water Balloon Toss: With partners, pass the balloon back and forth until every team's balloon breaks, except for one team who becomes the winner.
Hot Potato (With a Water Balloon)
Classic, Limbo of course! Good limbo music can be found here:

Decorations: *In stores, there is a wider selection!*
Lime green balloons: Are the perfect color! My local A.C. Moore was selling helium tanks that blow up 500 balloons for $21.99, so check there if you need a tank. 40 balloons should be a good amount if you have a medium to large yard, considering centerpieces, mailbox balloons, and fence balloons.
Luau Paper Cut Outs: Really cute cutouts can be found at Dollar Tree, about 8 for a dollar.
Leis: Give your guests cute leis! A dozen can be bought at, my favorite are the Mahalo Floral Leis for $10.50. The Dollar Tree also sells them for a dollar.
Umbrella Cut Outs: Use plastic wind cutouts to hang on the tips of your outside umbrellas.
*The Christmas Tree Shops have cute, cheap decorations too.*

Octopus Hot Dogs: Slit a cooked hot dog vertically up until about half way in eight ways.
Pineapple, Watermelon, and other fruit.
Pina Coladas/Strawberry Daiquiris (Without alcohol for the kids, of course)
Kabobs: traditional or not, such as things kids like; Chicken nuggets, Pizza Rolls, etc.
And traditional party foods, like chips, hamburgers, subs, cookies, birthday cake, etc.
*BJs has great cakes; $19.99 for 1/2 sheet cakes!*
