Has just about everyone in your family had it with winter already? Say goodbye to all the frost for your kid's upcoming winter birthday by throwing him or her a Hawaiian-themed luau slumber party.
You may not be able to use the outdoors for your event, so tiki torches may be out of the question. However, if you have a big room in your house with lots of natural sunlight, you can decorate it well enough that guests will feel as though they're miles away. Bamboo poles, fake vines, and plenty of hibiscus flowers should do the trick.
Guests should all receive leis, coconut bras and grass skirts upon arrival. For added effect, have bowls of real tropical flowers that girls can pin to their hair and boys can attach to their shirts.
Even if you don't bring out the mahi-mahi for dinner, you can still create island delights with pineapple dishes and fruit juices with paper parasols. Set up beach themed place card holders with Hawaiian versions of each guest's name.
Lastly, don't let them leave empty handed - you can fit a number of tropical reminders inside embroidered canvas beach totes, including beach pail keepsake boxes, personalized beach towels, tropical hibiscus personalized mint tins and coconut candles.
