I want to throw the best luau party ever! Can you post some tips?
Gwen from Dublin
have fruit kabobs. Rent a hula video and learn some moves then teach them at your party. play hawaiian music. Light tiki torches if you can these can be found sometimes at doller stores. Give each guest a hawaiian name which you can find online. or translate their name into hawaiian. Mine for instance is gloria which translates into kololia. Give you some other ideas later.
go to www.alohafriendsluau.com they have names, recipes, decoration ideas etc.
I go to this site, it is very good.
My son's 18th was the bestest! Two great games were the tacky tourist and pin the nose on the tiki face. The tacky tourist is a relay contest between two teams. at a thrift store, if possible, purchase 2 4x hawiia shirts, 2 cameras, 2 clown sunglasses, 2 grass skirts, 2 straw hats, and 2 swimming flippers. One person dresses then races to a tree in the yard, then back. Then they undress, and the next team member dresses. First team done wins!
I made a brown tiki god on a posterboard, then a bunch of paper noses from a second poster board. Play just like "pin the tail on the donkey". To encourage the guests to dress tropical, we had a judging. It was wonderful! My photo album is here:

an inexpensive idea for grass skirts is use garbage bags with the ties built in. Cut off the bottom and then cut 1" strips to about 2" from the top. Then use the ties to cinch it up around your waist. With sdome hunting, you can find different color garbage bags.
Another inexpensive idea is to cover patio umbrellas with raffia, for a tropical scene. Raffia can be found in most craft supply stores.
