Hawaiian Party Decoration
THE decoration is the key to making your Hawaiian party a great success. The advantage of this theme is that there is a lot of inspiration, both in movies and in similar celebrations, after all, it is very popular.
If it’s an anniversary, use very vibrant tones and warm colors (red, yellow, orange) more prominently. For a wedding or something that needs to be more ‘clean’, bet on balance, with something clearer as the main point – pink and white are good neutral colors – and colored ones as a complement (on the table and in smaller decorations). Avoid very dark colors, obviously.
It goes without saying that the Hawaiian party is ideal for summer and hot days. After all, everything needs to be very light, lively and vibrant, which doesn’t match the sober tone of winter.
Prefer a space to open air to increase contact with nature. It can be in the garden, patio, farm or even on the beach, if you are in a coastal area. Otherwise, bet on the sand!
Details are essential and must be well placed throughout the environment. Use favor trees to hang ornaments such as flowers and paper lamps.
It’s also a good idea to wear colored calico or jute fabrics. Bamboo and straw are also good bets for the perfect atmosphere of a Hawaiian party.
In lighting, everything needs to be very soft, with dimmer LED lights, lanterns and candles – arranged on the tables.
Speaking of which, the main table should have fruits and flowers (natural and artificial), something very natural and tropical.
For the guests’ table, use a plain tablecloth with a center decoration, this could be a small vase, candles or a custom paraphernalia.
What to serve?
O Hawaiian party menu it is very easy and simple to elaborate. On the coffee table, fruits need to be highlighted, precisely because this celebration has an all natural tone.
Make servings decorated with various types that match: watermelon, star fruit, grapefruit, apple, strawberry, mango, kiwi, among many others. The pineapple can be in the center and be used for drinks, as well as the green coconut.
Drinks and juices cannot be lacking, and the more colorful the better. Complement with more popular snacks that are light – nothing too heavy – in addition to traditional drinks. In this case, they don’t need to be in the decoration, they can be served separately, directly to the guests during the celebration.
Decorated Hawaiian Cake
Fruits and flowers should also be the highlight of a Hawaiian cake decorated, which can have several layers or be more discreet. Inside, dare with dyes in different colors to give a really cool contrast.
