If you are planning to organise a great party, maybe in a nice and green garden, hiring an outdoor mobile bar could be the idea that helps create an event that is original and will add to your celebration an atmosphere that transforms your party in one of those occasions that will never be forgotten by your guests.

In this article, we will give you an idea on how to create a Hawaiian Luau party which can be a fantastic thing to organise, especially during the warmest months of the year.

If you want to create something fun, a Hawaiian Luau party could be the right idea. To set all the decorations up doesn’t require too much work and the results are quite amazing. All the decorations used to recreate the Hawaiian atmosphere and to decorate the bar and the garden are easily findable online or in shops, are in general cheap and the final result is quite surprising.

To create a “warm tropical feeling” all the decorations need to be fairly colorful and the main colours need to be yellow, orange, pink and blue.

A good way to set the bar in line with the atmosphere, is decorating it, wrapping the bar top with grass skirt, a couple of fake or inflatable palm trees at both bar flanks along with coloured lights that will help also to give the warm tropical feeling especially when the night comes, with the typical Hawaiian music playing in the background.

Creating a fruit centrepiece with pineapples, mangoes, grapes, apples, bananas, kiwi fruit and placing it at the bar or on the table, will also help to get into the right atmosphere.

A good idea is also serving food using coloured catering and tableware, tablecloths and glasses.

The dress code is very important and all you and your guest need are Hawaiians shirts, T-shirts, hats and sunglasses. You can wear them with jeans or shorts, but to be more in tune with the atmosphere you can dress up using a sarong wrapped around your waist or wearing a grass skirt always with flip flops for a real ‘tropical’ outfit.

The other important aspect of the party is the bar. You can easily hire a professional bar service that specialises in serving cocktails and drinks in line with the occasion such as the Mai Tai, one of the most known typical Hawaiian cocktails or the Tropical Itch, Bahama or Coconut Mojito.

There are quite a few people who wish to have drinks ordered in a particular style, The Cocktail Bus can create a tailored drink menu for you in line with your needs and the occasion. They will come prepared to make the drinks you have asked for, and you will find that the menu they create tastes much better than running an open bar.
