Summer is just around the corner. I love this time of year when the days get longer and the sun is shining brighter. It’s time to break out the BBQ grills and have a backyard party! What can be more fun than throwing a summer party? Why, throwing a themed summer party, of course! One of the hottest themes for spring/summer parties is a Hawaiian Luau Party.
Type of Event
We’ve gathered some ideas from past events to help you plan the perfect luau party. We can start with the type of event you want to have. If you want a formal sit-down dinner, you can rent 60” round tables that sit 8-10 people or 72” round tables that sit 10-12 people. Having long rectangular banquet tables is also a great way to have a sit-down luau as well.
For a more casual gathering, you can rent 48” round tables that seat 6-8 guests and add some stand-up cocktails so that people can mingle and move around throughout the party.
Luaus usually have lots of vibrant colors such as turquoise, lime green, bright yellow, fuchsia, and orange. You can incorporate some or all of these colors throughout your event. We also have a Hawaiian print linen for rent that would also be great for a Hawaiian-themed event.
To add to the festive linens that you choose, you can rent the tiki hut and use that as a visual focal point. The tiki hut can house the bar where most people will usually congregate. For the bar, you can use a 6′ banquet table with extender legs that will extend the table to bar height. Then, cover your table with a Lamour Lime green linen, add some matching Chiavari bar stools, and you’ve got yourself a complete tiki bar ready to go. For some additional accents to your bar, you can buy paper lantern lights and string it along the top of the tiki hut, which can be bought at places like Target. A red parrot, purchased at Party City, perched on the corner of the roof adds to the fun of this theme.
To provide some shade for your guests, if you don’t have your own umbrellas, you can rent either vinyl or market umbrellas. These rental umbrellas come in a few different colors. To decorate your umbrellas, you can string colored lanterns to not only provide a splash of color during the day, but also some ambient lighting during the evening.
And of course you can’t forget the chair rentals. Bamboo folding chairs really top off this Hawaiian Luau theme completing the entire Hawaiian look.
