What a perfect location for a luau-- pool..firepit..
There was another post for a summer party and this is what I told her ~ maybe it will help you too! :)
party favor ideas: hand out flower leis as guests arrive ~ or make handmade tropical-themed friendship bracelets ahead of time to put on each guest as they arrive...
prizes: inexpensive funky sunglasses, tropical (all kinds) key rings, (starting at 2.49/dz.), tropical can coolers (4.95/dz.)
Play luau-style music, like "shake senora"; "limbo rock", ~get a compilation cd with all kinds of upbeat fun luau music.
Do the limbo-- how looooow can you go? This can be your game to win prizes...(boys against girls even)
Serve teriyaki chicken and pork kabobs on the grill and make tropical smoothies, complete with an umbrella.
And the best part is- all of these ideas are perfect for summer/outdoor/ and.. guys or girls!
