Homemade Hawaiian Luau

We celebrated my aunt’s 65th birthday in true Hawaiian style this weekend. She’s a member of a local ukelele club, so the theme was fitting. The party-planners had purchased leis for everyone to wear at the party, and many decorations that laced the indoor and outdoor areas. Luaus are popular summer party themes, whether or not you have any Hawaiian heritage – they’re fun and inexpensive! I wish there was more DIY Hawaiian decor out there – any recommendations?

We had used these invitations for the party, to get the word out that this was a Hawaiian luau! The stamps we used were a bit different, but the local craftstore always has something reminiscent of this theme, so don’t worry about that!

The party was a big hit – it was a surprise – and she was definitely surprised! The scorching weekend heat made us feel more like we were on the islands, except there wasn’t a body of water nearby to give us some cool relief. To document all the fun we had, I found these scrapbook pages from Etsy that will make great backgrounds for all the pictures we took!
