It seems as if school just got out, but here we are with less than a month to get the last of our summer fun on. Soon it will be one busy football, dance or cheer schedule after another along with homework leaving little time for easy summer nights. The best way to enjoy these last days of summer fun is to go out with a bang and host an End of Summer luau!  Here’s how to host your best luau to usher in the upcoming school year.

Gather all your buddies with a fun e-vite or traditional invitation letting them know it’s time for them to grab their best luau gear and head on over to celebrate! Check out this beautiful invitation by MiniStore on Etsy.

To set a fun tone for your guests, line your front walkway or driveway with Tiki torches letting your guests know that fun is about to ensue. You will also want to have a variety of island music downloaded and playing from the time the first guest arrives to when the last guests leave. Hang rope fishnet against a wall or in a corner to add a fun touch. Add a few seashells to really jazz it up. Scatter beach balls in the party area to get guests in the party mood or create this easy beach ball garland from Make Life Lovely. Make sure all your tables are covered with a raffia table skirt to give them a finished look. Leis can double as decorations and a fun takeaway for your guests.

String up some colorful paper lanterns for added decorations to any space. Think bright and fun! Party Place can also create you a one-of-a-kind balloon decoration just for your party like this one from www.borderart.com.

When deciding upon your food, stay in theme and choose things like fruit kabobs with pineapple, grapes and other tasty fruit that skewers well. Other food options are chicken chunks with pineapple salsa. Of course, you must serve every drink with a paper umbrella.

Keep the party fun with great decorations from the Party Place. Stop by one of their locations today to get your luau on!
