Tropical Luau Party Ideas: Your Guide to Table Decorations, Favors, and More!

The current love affair between a tropical theme and summer celebrations couldn’t be more enchanting. And our own Tropical Luau-inspired setting proves just how smitten we are ourselves! Come view our slideshow below and draw inspiration for your own summertime soirees. From a vibrant palette of fuchsia, orange, green and yellow, to lush centerpieces with bright florals, to natural materials such as bamboo, wood, seashells and sand, even to fruit-based favors, treats and drinks—every element brings the exotic ambiance of the tropics to life.

TABLE DECORATIONS FOR A TROPICAL LUAU PARADISE

The fabulous thing about decorating for a tropical theme is that the styling elements are so distinct and iconic. A color palette of hot hues, palm leaves, orchids, pineapples, seashells—and your look is made! Here we showcase ways to bring these elements to your centerpieces, place settings, candlescapes, place cards and more. The total effect can be quite breathtaking!

FAVORS THAT ARE FESTIVE AND FLAVORFUL

Your party favors, too, can take flavor and packaging cues from the tropics! Think of giving fruit-infused treats from candies to tarts, tropical nut mixes, or coconut cookies or bars. Then present them in containers like woven mini baskets, seashell dishes, colorful favor containers that either blend right in with the balmy beach look or create a surprise modern touch. Either way, guests will love them!
