Are you looking for fun graduation party ideas?
Thinking of having a luau theme graduation party?
Congratulations! Your child made it through high school and/or college. You want to celebrate and send him/her off in style. Light up the tiki torches because there's nothing more fun than a Hawaiian-themed graduation party.
Graduation celebrations are usually in the Spring, when the weather is great and everyone loves to be outdoors. This will make your guests feel like they're escaping to the Hawaiian Islands - right in your backyard! With a Hawaiian-themed graduation party you can treat your guests to The Ultimate Hawaiian Getaway Without a 12-Hour Flight.
When sending out your invitation, encourage everyone to wear luau clothing, like Hawaiian shirts, Hawaiian dresses, bright shorts, straw hats and/or flip flops. When guests arrive greet them with a Hawaiian lei in the graduate's school colors.
Decorate the entrance of your celebration with tiki torches. Use exotic, bright tropical colors for tableware like lime, bright pink, and blue. Place grass skirts around the food tables. Fill an inflatable palm tree and/or cooler with drinks and ice so people can help themselves.
And remember: it's not a Hawaiian-themed party without a tiki bar! If you're in the DC, MD, or VA area, TikiTreats can rent you a tiki bar and can even come in with the tiki bar and serve everyone Hawaiian shave ice served in flower cups, topped off with a Hawaiian parasol. No wonder people call us a "vacation in a cup!"
Hawaiian are known for throwing great parties with lots of food. At an authentic luau, they'll roast a whole pig on a spit. Don't feel like you have to do that, but make sure you do have a wide variety of food options that fit in with your tropical theme.
You'll also want to make sure you have some enjoyable entertainment lined up. Blast up the music and have everyone participate in a limbo contest.
Your child's Hawaiian themed graduation celebration can be as small or as large as you want. The key is to have a budget and stay with it. The best part of planning a Hawaiian themed graduation party is that everyone loves this type of theme. With these pointers, you'll have a luau-themed graduation party planned that will have everyone doing the hula!
