Luau Party Invitations

Set the mood and make the best first impression in your guests with your Hawaiian Luau party that will build up a buzz. Consider any tropical theme like beach, blue sky, flip flops and anything that you fancy as the background of your invitation. Need something different? Plan a cut out invitation in the shape of a tropical flower, which will catch the eyes of everyone easily.

What about an inflated beach ball invitation? It is a fun way to share the party details with your guests and they will have all the fun in the world as they inflate the balls to read the details!


Spread out multi colored beach towels for the guests to sit as they eat or play games. Customize these with your party tagline and message to make it special. You can even set up a separate sandy area with sea shells and starfish strewn around to recreate the feel of a Hawaii beach!

Beach Towels

 Set up tiki torches along the driveway or sidewalk leading up to the party location. Colored flowers ad festoons can be hung along the doorway and ceiling to ensure a grand welcome to your guests. Balloons are a must-have for any party! Luau-themed Mylar balloons will enhance the party vibes.  Tropical fruits like pineapples or coconuts make great table center pieces. Play luau party music in the background.
