When we decided to post about Luau themed parties, we knew there would be an over-abundance of information and websites to link to, so it would be a matter of finding the most unique ideas for this colorful, fun and popular party theme.
Certainly the Hawaiian themed luau party, complete with tikis and grass skirts, is an easy party to throw given that tropical party decorations and paper goods are available at any party store and online.
But what if you decided to throw a luau themed baby or bridal shower? Or a 50th anniversary party reminiscent of the couple’s honeymoon destination? Certainly our new Luau bookmark design would make the perfect favor because we can print any text whatsoever on our bookmarks, or recolor designs to match the party colors, at absolutely no extra cost to the customer. But with the favors taken care of, what about cakes and treats and other decorations for these parties?
