Now that autumn has arrived, you may be looking for ways to escape from the falling temperatures and changing leaves. Of course, most of us can't just jet away to a tropical island, but who says you can't bring the island to you? Invite some friends over, whip out that ukulele and enjoy a luau-themed cocktail party! Here are a few tips to help the planning go smoothly.
Since you'll probably be holding this party indoors, you'll want to spruce up your décor to suit the theme. Set aside a table at the entrance and place hula skirts and leis on top. Encourage your guests to dress accordingly!
You'll want some calming tiki music playing over the stereo – you can probably just hook up your laptop and set up a Pandora station. Beverage-wise, as long as it's got fruit in it, it'll work. Daquiris and pina coladas are the kinds of drinks you want to incorporate into the party. From there, it's just a matter of basking in the carefree island mentality!
