Food: Consider a pig roast for a fun and festive theme meal at your Hawaiian Luau. You might also like: Chicken Hawaiian (pineapples and cherries included), rice with sweet and sour chicken or sweet and sour meatballs, any kind of fish or seafood dish, especially shrimp cocktail or fried shrimp, fruit salad, and more. Let’s not forget about any vegetarian or vegan guests – be sure to have a nice garden salad, a veggie stirfry, vegetarian baked beans, and possibly one additional tropical dish.
Drinks: Mai Tais, pina coladas, Malibu bay breezes, and blue Hawaiians will get your luau off to a great start! Don’t forget some themed tropical glasses for all your friends. As a bonus, check out the palm tree cooler and the great ambiance it can offer to your Hawaiian Luau!
Music: Conjure up something from the Beach Boys collection, throw on some Jimmy Buffett, or rock out with some tribal rhythms or beats from a steel drum band. The right music can really set the scene for your Hawaiian Luau.
Decorations: Sand, seashells, bright tropical colors (neons work great – pink, orange, green, blue, yellow), decorative fish, shellfish, or other tropical creatures, candles, and synthetic or fresh tropical flowers all make for the perfect Hawaiian Luau.
