A great way to put your guests into a relaxed and amicable atmosphere, the Luau bridal showers are all about food, games and decorations with a tropical theme. No matter where you plan the bridal shower, you can have the theme run through with your decorations.
Luau Decorations that will Set the Tone of the Bridal Shower
It’s all about arranging a party with exotic feast and merriment- and every one will remember it for years. You can plan it as only girls’ party or have mixed guests. The tropical setting will add all the freshness to the party and you must decorate the place keeping in mind the tropical theme. The decorations must remind the bride and the guests of the turquoise waters, sun kissed sand and the soft tropical breeze and the abundance of tropical cool drinks. Here are simple tips that you will surely find in handy if you are planning a Luau bridal Shower.
• Location: If you happen to live by the beach or even by the lake (or any water body) that could be the perfect location of the Luau bridal shower.
• Invitations: The invitations must have the tropical scenes with fringed palm trees or even a map of Hawaii will suffice. It is important that you let the guests know of the theme and if they are bringing in gifts, it must be with the Hawaiian theme.
• Dress: Request your guests to dress up in bright sun dresses with the traditional Hawaiian flowers on their head, while men can wear the comfortable Hawaiian patterned shirts. Don’t forget the prize for the best dressed guest.
• Decorations: This is important, as it will set the entire tone. The lei inspired decorations; especially the curtains would look perfect. Artificial flowers or streamers all around the room are important. The theme can be interwoven with the table with bamboo runners and bright pineapples as centerpieces. It would be great if you use the candles and the famous tiki torches for the late evenings. And yes, don’t forget to greet all with ‘Aloha’.
The Luau bridal shower can be a great ice breaker and encourage the guests to be comfortable. To spice it up why don’t you think of adding the hula dancing and the ukulele playing?
