This fabulous TIKI LUAU PARTY was submitted by Gwynn Wasson of Gwynn Wasson Designs.

I love the festive, tropical feel of this luau party! The ideas in this party would be so fun for any luau, beach or swim themed event from a bridal shower to a graduation to a birthday party.

The Tiki Luau party ideas and elements I like best in this occasion are:

  • The chocolate hibiscus lollipops
  • The surfboard cookies
  • The impressive 3-tier tiki luau cake
  • The grass skirt table skirt
  • The creative pretzel rod totem poles
  • and MORE!

TIKI LUAU PARTY DETAILS:

Gwynn said this about planning the party- “Not too long ago I styled bright, festive Tiki Luau for an adorable little boy who was turning 1. His mother asked for a luau theme, in part because he has an older sister and they thought that it could be a fun theme for both ages.

The luau theme can definitely trend girl-y so I worked on giving our tiki party some boy-ish charm by adding some surfboards and tiki heads into the decor and desserts as well incorporating a fun retro color palette full of vibrant orange, blue and lime.

The hostess requested that there be a feeling of water somewhere in the decorations, so I designed the table so that the desserts rested upon a swath of blue crepe to represent the ocean and draped it freely over some billowing burlap which lent to the feeling of water sweeping up on the sand.

Chocolate pretzel tiki head totem poles stood at attention in wicker bowls of “wet sand” (brown sugar), tiki head and surfboard cookies were displayed standing up as though the surfers had just paddled in and had left their boards on the beach, and chocolate hibiscus lollipops as well as bright, sprinkle-laden cake pops added a nice splash of color. To complete the scene, a beautiful tiki head cake, complete with bamboo fence (Pirouette cookies), ocean swells and surfboards, presided over the whole tablescape.

No first birthday is complete without a special place for the guest of honor to smash his cake, so I created the perfect scene with an antique high chair, I painted aqua, framed by surfboards and adorn with a couple fun printable banners.

For the older children I accessorized the kids table with delicate Hawaiian influenced parasols embedded in a sand buckets topped with a sprinkling of sea glass. Each place setting had a fun banana leaf plate and every child received their very own pineapple straw cup. The chairs are festooned with festive paper fans and fun grass skirts.”
