Luau Bridal Shower Theme
When you are planning a bridal shower a theme might come in handy to help you in your planning. One popular, fun theme is a Luau. A luau is translated to mean “a feast,” and what better way to celebrate an up coming wedding than a feast.
If you are planning a luau theme there are a lot of different ideas for party favors, decorations, and food.
Party decorations should consist of flowers, leis, and a beach feel. You could even buy some inflatable palm trees. The food can be anything tropical. Fruit platters, fish, shrimp, and tropical slushies are some ideas.
Your invitations can have photos of the beach, palm trees or flowers. There are many different options available. You may want to have the party at a beach or a pool. If you plan on having the party at one of these locations you will need to mention to guests to bring a swimsuit along to the party.
When guests enter the party you should place lei around their neck. Have Hawaiian music playing in the background to set the mood. You can also look up each guests name on AlohaFriends.com and give them a name tag indicating their Hawaiian name.
There are many games that you can play that encompass the luau theme. You can have each guest wear a Hawaiian shirt and people can vote on the loudest one. You can also have a limbo contest. There is a game called swinging banana which has a guest tie a banana around their waist so it falls between their legs, the idea is to swing your hips in order to move a ping pong ball to the finish line.
A luau can be a fun way to celebrate a bridal shower.
