Party Time – Backyard Luau Party!

Luau Party Backyard Birthday Celebration


Luau Party with Mom’s Lifesavers

We had a HULA lot of fun at our backyard luau party!

What a great time we had celebrating my nieces birthdays with a luau party themed birthday.

Celebrating for 2 girls while keeping the celebration affordable was the plan.

We shopped at our local party store Funny Bones Party Superstore for some leis and balloons.

TIP – Helium balloons are inexpensive and really add a ‘boost’ to your party decorating, even on a budget.

We also made some homemade decorations to add to the luau party theme, what do you think?

  • Tiki – This hand painted titi (a fireplace log) greeted guests – supplies needed: paint, log & imagination!
  • Chalkboard painted signs welcomed guests and can be used over and over again! Click here for our chalkboard paint secret!
  • Hairclips and Leis – guests were greeted ‘island style’ with lies and handmade hibiscus hair clips (artificial flowers hot glued to hair clips)

One of the highlights was the ALOHA Bingo game! This customized party game was ordered through Etsy – what a hit!
We were sent the customized files via email and all we had to do was print them out and had a perfectly fun party game that was inexpensive and totally ‘theme-tastic’.
TrulyBillEve on Etsy offers so many customizable bingo games that include Lego, Star Wars, American Girl, Hello Kitty and so much more – tell them Mom’s Lifesavers sent you!

There were also ‘stations’ for the kids, including Hula, Frisbee, Limbo and Make Your Own Tiki Necklace!

Time for Cake!

What would a luau party be without cake? Not a luau party, that’s for sure!
Here are the two cakes for the celebration – a Tiki and hula doll cake of course!

At the end of the party young guests were sent home with party themed bubbles and jump ropes – perfect for summer fun! The customized bubble wrappers were from Michelle’s Party Shop on Etsy. Please tell Michelle we said hi!
