The Hawaiian Luau dinner party is a traditional favorite because the relaxed lighthearted mood encourages your guests to interact and have fun. The luau and tiki party refer to a Polynesian-inspired tropical island theme with a wide range of dinner table centerpiece and decorating options.
Create a cheerful dinner party atmosphere centered around a charming pair of coconut characters. A coconut hula girl and her monkey sidekick will delight your guests are relax the mood. Cut two leis to create garlands of flowers to interlace down the table center.
Metallic palm tree weights or tiki gods on each end of your luau centerpiece will add interest. Shell design salt & pepper shakers are a nice complement to the Hawaiian Luau dinner party scene.
Lay a lei over the back of your dining chairs for each guest to wear.Finally, sprinkle some tropical-inspired metallic confetti of cockatoos, pineapples, and palm trees down the center of the table.
Decorate the pre-dinner cocktail bar or drink area with a tiki god statue and tiki god beverage napkins. Brightly colored drink parasols are always a hit with tropical drinks. Drape the bar or drink table with a grass table skirt to add to the island atmosphere.
Elegant and fun...pink flamingos have never been more hip and stylish! These birds are chic and sleek and certainly a step up from the party down the block, elevating the interest level in your guest list.
The unique and elegant pink flamingo party decorations hold pleasant surprises for all invited, which of course, reflects upon the good taste of their host.
Pink Flamingos & Palm Trees
Start with a metal beach flamingo complete with chapeau in the center flanked by metal palm tree votive candle holders and pink flamingo balsa wood carvings.
Light up the scene with hot pink & green votive candle holders in parallel down the length of the table. For a more elegant look, use blush & celery green candles in clear votive candle holders instead.
At each place setting, alternate solid pink and green beverage napkins in the center of each plate in a diamond shape, or go over the top with all pink.
Position a palm tree & hibiscus cocktail napkin in the center of the plate as a square so that the corners of the pink or green napkin peek out on each side.
Pair metallic pink & green party beads with the pink and green napkins, then wrap a rolled up white dinner napkin at each place setting with the necklaces. Napkin rings that your guests can wear make for fun times during dinner.
You may want to arrange the colors so that boys get green and girls get pink. See our tips on making a seating chart for more details.
