Aloha! I’m Mariah from Giggles Galore and I’m thrilled to be here with Bloom Designs Online to share a fun Tropical Luau Party full of fabulous ideas for celebrating summer birthdays or just hanging out with friends pool side.
Who wouldn’t want to celebrate their birthday in paradise? For this luau birthday party I transformed the backyard into a special tropical paradise. Bright, bold colors set the tone for the festive party and and lots of creative DIY projects helped make take it from ordinary to extraordinary! I transformed my homemade lemonade stand into a Tiki Hut with festive pineapple cups, beach ball gumballs and sand bucket party favors. The kids had their own special corner near Bella’s Tiki Hut and tables were set with colorful place settings, festive luau leis and buckets of sand.
After splashing in the pool and soaking up the sun guest enjoyed dinner and lots of sweet goodies from the “Sugar Shack.” A three layer tropical cake was adorned with colorful hibiscus and the focal point of the dessert table. Cupcakes with custom fondant toppers from Love & Sugar Kisses matched the festive luau printables by The Paper Cupcake perfectly. Other sweet treats included a variety of tropical cookies from Sweet Tweets and Pina Colada cake pops and hibiscus cookies from The Hospitality Sweet. Fresh fruit and pineapple yogurt dip provided a refreshing treat for guest to enjoy after a dip in the pool.
This tropical luau birthday party was a great way to celebrate a sweet little girl and her summer birthday!
