We decided to go with a luau theme which made the party planning really fun and super versatile. Since his birthday is in January it was also kind of unique and funny since it is definitely not luau weather outside! Since it is an adults only party I didn't do nearly as much as I would for a kid party. We can entertain ourselves and don't need crafts or games. I did however want to have a few yummy things to eat and some festive decor. I got some inspiration from pinterest and made myself a planning board. I decided to go with gold, yellow and green as the main party colors but accented with a bunch of fun tropical colors too. I purchased some lei's, drink umbrellas, gold cups and plates, a photo backdrop, a flower garland, some fake palm leaves, some birthday balloons and a golden fringe curtain for decorations from Amazon and finished it up using some craft paper and tape. My friend Paige also helped with planning and contributed some fun blow-up fish and beach balls as well as a few fake palm trees and nets to add even more ambiance. We spent about four hours putting it all together the night before and ended up with a really fun, vibrant party where the guests could enjoy themselves.
The pineapple salsa was also easy and delicious. I put it in a hollowed out half of a pineapple for added flair. And, I'm not sure if you've ever had these delicious mini sandwiches but, you're missing out if you haven't. They are sooooo yummy!
