You can also suggest surfer-inspired shirts for the men, while ladies can come in vibrant floral printed dresses or blouses. Guests can even wear their favorite ugly Christmas sweater with a Hawaiian theme. There are no hard rules so encourage guests to be creative!

HOW TO DECORATE  AND ENTERTAIN AT YOUR PARTY

Welcome your guests at the front door with a colorful tropical Christmas wreath (2) decorated with faux hibiscus. You can include this same motif in your table decorations. Add a whimsical Santa figurine (3) to echo the whimsical nature of your theme. Decorate your Christmas tree with fun Hawaiian themed ornaments (4) in shapes of flip flops and ukuleles. Add tropical tunes with a CD collection of Hawaiian Christmas party music (5). Beyond music, why not play some luau party games!

CONSIDER A CHRISTMAS MENU WITH HAWAIIAN RECIPES

Plan your own Christmas luau with tropical recipes! Use glamorous gold pineapple platters (6) to serve guests delicious tiki bar appetizers such as Hawaiian pork sliders, coconut shrimps with dip, and savory meatballs with pineapple. You can even set up a mini tiki bar with Hawaiian cocktails like blue Hawaii, Mai Tais, and piña coladas. Include mini cocktail parasols and tropical cocktail napkins (7) in Christmas colors. For Hawaiian desserts, make pineapple upside down cake, a tropical fruit salad, and macadamia nut cookies! Serving Kona coffee to your guests is a must!

GIVE HAWAIIAN INSPIRED FAVORS AND GIFTS

Make your holiday event truly memorable by giving out Hawaiian favors to guests. Think of the iconic macadamia chocolates (8) as a special treat. You can make your own pineapple cookies and present them in pretty wrapping. Seashell dishes that can hold trinkets are also a special keepsake to give guests.
