Luau's and summertime are a perfect match! And, Oriental Trading is a great resource for unique decor items that don't break the bank!
When you search the term 'luau', there are literally hundreds of design concepts and options that pop up! Leis, tiki torches, raffia, hula skirts, palm leaves, pineapples, hibiscus flowers, palm trees....Choosing a design direction can be overwhelming at times.When working on the design concept for this birthday party, we wanted to create a modern, streamlined look and feel for the seated tables.
This simple tablescape shown above was part of the overall decor design for a Hawaiian theme 2nd birthday party. Acting as a table runner are these fantastically simple palm leaves layered across the table. We loved how they popped against the simple, crisp white linens.
For a pop of color while also working with the green runner, we alternated pink and green leis on the chair backs which appealed to both boy and girl party guests.
And finally, for a fun centerpiece option, hollow out a pineapple and fill with fresh, brightly colored flowers! We chose white hydrangeas for their amazing filler potential and added pops of pink and green throughout to tie everything together.
