Host a bridal shower luau party theme, for an event that will be remembered by all. Meaning "feast" in Hawaiian, a luau is used to celebrate a special occasion. So if the bride-to-be (or couple) likes tropical breezes, warm sand, and cool drinks, then a luau party it is!
Do you live near the beach or any body of water? That's the perfect location, weather permitting. You can also have fun creating this theme in a private home or rented hall.
Bridal shower luau party invitations will be your first island greeting.
• Cards that have tropical scenes, palm trees, or a map of Hawaii are some of your options.
• Let guests know if they should bring a gift that's related to the bridal shower luau party theme.
• Request that guests dress for this island event. Women can wear colored sundresses, with a flower in their hair, or floral shirts and casual slacks or shorts.
Men can wear Hawaiian print shirts and comfortable slacks or shorts.
Welcome guests with your luau decorations.
• Greet "Aloha" with Hawaiian leis. Have a basket filled with these, at the entrance.
• Set up an island paradise with tiki torches and palm trees.
• Tropical scene setters are a great way to set the mood.
• Netting can also be used as a backdrop on which to hang masks and shells.
• Scatter bamboo baskets and leis around the room.
• Your luau decorations can also include wind chimes and tropical lights.
• Cover tables with either a solid or print tablecloth. Outline the edge of tables with grass skirts.
