Planning a Hawaiian Themed Party? It Starts with the Flowers!
If you are eager to invite in the sun after a long, cold winter, why not host a Hawaiian luau for your friends and family? This is a great way to celebrate the change of the seasons and to surround yourself with bright, vibrant colors that will energize and invigorate you. Here are some ideas to guide you in designing a Hawaiian party that is sure inspire the hula:
Decorate your backyard retreat or event space with tropical colors that evoke images of summer ocean breezes. Arrange Hawaiian flowers throughout your space, like beautiful yellow cymbidium orchid blossoms in bud vases or bouquets of fiery orange roses in tall glasses that will look just like a Hawaiian sunset.
Leis in vibrant colors are an essential element of any luau. You can find leis at party stores to adorn your guests, and then you can find gorgeous flowers to match. Create a landscape of colors with pops of bright pink lilies and alstroemeria against a lush green canvas of green mums. Yellow roses and gerbera will add more excitement to your decor, and rich purple daisies can perfectly imitate a lovely lei.
Don't forget to include fresh fruit in your party's Hawaiian decor! Coconuts, pineapples and other tropical fruit can create a cheery table decoration for a luau. Arrange whole fruits in a basket with some colorful yellow button spray chrysanthemums or pink azaleas for added interest. Or, use a whole pineapple as a food platter too, sticking in skewers to hold pieces of fruit or snacks.
Let your imagination and creativity run wild and you are sure to create a Hawaiian getaway your guests won't soon forget!
