Wow! I can't believe another year has passed and we are celebrating my daughter's birthday again! This year was especially fun, as Isabella was so excited about her girls only "Luau Island Party".  As we were discussing this years theme, Isabella was inspired by all the luau party supplies we had seen in all the stores and also the Teen Beach Movie on Disney. For the luau, I focused on a more modern feel. I wanted everything to portray her personality ~ bright and cheerful. Whats more bright and cheerful than yellow? Using yellow stripes as our base, we went with hot pink and orange as our other two primary colors.

Our guests were welcomed to the luau with an Aloha sign posted on the front door of the pool clubhouse. As you stepped inside there were three tables set up, the drink table; main table and to the right, the sweets table.

The table decor used included burlap and white cotton tablecloths; grass skirts; leis; a colorful fabric swag and a beautiful centerpiece we borrowed from our school theater department. Our sweets table was set up under a tiki hut umbrella. The plates had a fun hula dancer on the front with rich, vibrant colors and we paired solid colored napkins to match. We purchased wooden forks and used a colorful floral design washi tape, that matched our theme perfect, to cover the handles. Wrist leis, were used to decorate the straw and fork jars. Each guest had there own personalized cup to sip on Lemon Berry and Hawaiian punch, that were served out of large seashells.

We decided to serve a variety of sweets and fruit for our party since it was early afternoon. The fruit consisted of pineapple; kiwi; strawberries; blueberries; blackberries and raspberries. We placed the berries in small plastic square cups with palm tree honeycomb picks and hot glued mini brown pom poms to the bottom for coconuts! We made some fruit tart cups that were eaten in a matter of minutes. There were Totem Bites, aka Jell-O jigglers; a Pig Roast; Cupcakes with royal icing hibiscus flowers; Candy Kabobs and the main attraction a Volcano cake that erupted! We also had coconuts {chocolate whoppers}; gorgeous cookies to match the theme; Oyster Pearls {white mini gumballs} and sandy treats {cinnamon and sugar coated donuts}.

For entertainment, our prop guy {my husband}, made a limbo for the girls to play; they swam and hula hooped. To say "Mahalo" to the girls for coming, each one took home a lei and a personalized bracelet Isabella had made them.

It was so fun to see all the girls and their parents enjoy the festivities of the Luau Island Party. Ahoha!
