I then began to brain storm about a luau and of course the main focus is the hula girls...Perfect...so I created these invitations
The inside of the invitation read
After making the invitations I was able to work on all the details...this was so much fun! I got great fabric from JoAnns to use as accents for the table clothes
And of course needed to stock up on some cute ribbon :)
After all the shopping I just let my creative juices flow haha and had a blast making every detail perfect!
The look on Lucy's face when she woke up the morning of her party and saw our house transformed was priceless...
Our table set up and centerpieces. Each table had a different colored table cloth and a different print
fabric to coordinate with it.
Remember my Farmer's market find...It was perfect for the front door
I set seashells and star fish to accent the food area. Special note: these seashells we passed down generations and are from the 50's found on our beaches...
The lollipop tree filled with hibiscus and flip flop suckers, the kids loved it!
The front foyer had a bin for every guest to grab their lei and get into the Hawaiian spirit
The yummy cupcake table...I love the cupcake toppers designed with the help of Jen at Blush Printables
Delicious food catered by Debran ans Kenny
Used these vintage candy jars to hold the rainbow goldfish & bags of Crazy Core Skittles (Lucy's favorite)
I was so proud of my chocolate covered pretzels...this was my first attempt and they were a huge hit :)
The party favors...mini buckets with a shovel, rake, and scooper
The Tiki Hut my dad and I built for the party filled with hibiscus bubbles, parasols, fun Hawaiian glasses, Hawaiian clappers, and tons of other fun goodies...isn't it cute? I even made the curtains for it :)
The direction post for outdoor activities
Coconut Bowling! I set up a bowling alley for the kids and they loved it!
Our custom poster we had made for the Pin the Monkey on the Palm Tree
A palm tree filled with monkeys
Hibiscus lanterns hung from the patio cover
what would a luau be without a ton of beach balls thrown around the yard?
Tons of hula hoops too
Big and little kids LOVED these fun Hawaiian silly glasses
Happy birthday Lucy!!
Lucy loved her cupcake!
Me and my big Kahuna
My little birthday girl
We even had Hawaiian brewed beer that was amazingly good
Lucy drinking her Tiki Punch...we saw it at the store and she said "Mom we have to get those for my Hawaii party" haha
