My ideal summer vacation includes beaches, calming waves, fruit drinks with umbrellas, and far from home. That can’t always happening so a Luau in the backyard can be the next best thing. Gather your friends and family, and say “Aloha” with Luau Party Ideas for summer!

Luau Party Ideas
Luau Table Setting Ideas
When I think of a Luau, I think of bright colors and paradise. When I think of paradise, I think of pineapples. Cover the tables with bright colored tablecloths and make pineapple centerpieces and attach simple stakes for table numbers, themed phrases, or just a fun festive addition.
Luau Beverage Station
Paradise requires cocktails in my book and a Luau Beverage station is the perfect place for serving things like my Luau Cocktail! 😉 Get extra bright colored tablecloths for your beverage station, like the Ikat fabric with an islandy color. Make a fun Aloha Sign for your Luau beverage station to welcome your guests to the party.
Luau Food Ideas
Next to epic decorations, food makes a party. Plan a menu worthy of paradise with these Luau Food Ideas:
- Barbecue Pineapple Meatballs
- Pineapple Salsa
- Hawaiian Pulled Pork Sandwiches
- Pineapple Boat with Fluffy Fruit Dip
- Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs
- Hawaiian BBQ Baked Beans
- Coconut Lime Cupcakes
Luau Photo Booth
Parties and photos go hand and hand, so why not set up a Luau Photo Booth for guests! Set up a colorful photo backdrop or cardboard decorations, and fill a basket with Luau wear like hula skirts and leis for guests to use as props.
Luau Party Supplies
The final touch on turning your backyard into paradise are those small things that make it fun. Grab some Luau Party Supplies like textured pineapple cups and embellished margarita glasses to complete the theme.
