Hawaiian shirts, shorts, colorful sarongs, and sundresses! Give every guest a lei when they arrive -- you can buy cheap ones with silk flowers, or even make your own by stringing tissue-paper flowers on thread or yarn. Grass skirts and coconut shell bikinis are optional -- catalogues like Oriental Trading Company do sell them if you want to spend money on them.

That sounds really really cool! For my 13th birthday this Friday I'm going to have a luau party. We will go swimming, then come back and play volleyball, eat dinner, have presents, cake and a sleepover. I suggest that if you are going to cook traditional or non-traditional luau meat, to offer something else as well, like pineapple pizza, for the vegetarians. Out of the six people I'm inviting, three are vegetarian! We will have a "tiki bar" off to the side with drinks and snacks. I advise popular drinks, like soda and lemonade, as well as more Hawaiian things, like fruit smoothies or pina coladas. Anyway, thanks for the terrific idea! Have a fun luau party!
thank you for the suggestions, but please update your info regarding poi. it is NOT made from sea cucumbers, it is made from the root of the taro plant. other than that, it's all accurate and all good! thanks again!
That sounds like fun, One easy recipe is to use your favorite sweet and sour sauce, and get the small smokie sausages the ones that are already precooked, they come plain or with cheese, and look like miniture hot dogs, you can put any kind of fruit in with the sauce, canned pineapple, mandarin oranges, fruit cocktail.It would probably save a lot of money to make your own sauce, if you had time, and either way you could put everything for this dish in a crock pot.Hope you have fun.Kersti P.S. You could serve this over rice.If you know someone that has a rice cooker, they make the best rice and they look nice enough to serve the rice from.
