Need help with a Hawaiian luau party as a sweet 16 this summer?
hey! i'm having a sweet 16 luau party. very hawaiian/tropical theme. i need party ideas.
about my party:
this will take place early august in nj. it will be in my backyard with about 20 people. where we live about that time of the year, the sun goes down around 8 o'clock. the party starts at 4 and ends at 11.
what will take place:
hoola hoop contests
relaxing by the pool
silk flower leis
painted shells with guests' names on them
flamingo or palm tree table covers
blow up palm trees
plastic fish bowls filled with water, sand and rocks with a flower on top
straws with umbrellas in them
palm tree center pieces
6 disposable cameras (would this be enough for 15/20 people?)!
plastic silverware with a tie and flower around each
blow up ukuleles
plastic tiki cups where i can write the guests' name on
fish net to drape around the back deck. here, there will be pictures of me growing up (mom & best friends are making me =/- what kind of pix should i pick out?), a list of all the guests names translated into hawaiian, pictures of hawaii, fake fish and shells...
a paper surf board about 3 feet tall which people can sign on their way in.
virgin pina coladas
virgin strawberry daquiris
i'm making chocolate covered strawberries, marshmallows and pretzels for dessert.
what kind of candy should i have to give out? i was thinking... air heads, gum, jolly ranchers, skittles, sour patch, sweet tarts, nerds, sweetish fish....
my invitation will be a cutout surfboard with the info on it.
In the beginning of the party (once everyone is there) I am going to have my mom take a picture of all us kiddies. Then, she can print up as many pictures there are guests, put in a frame and have me give it to them as they exit. The pictures from the disposable cameras will be developed with some made copies so that I can give these out in the Thank You cards that will be mailed a week later.
these are some of the Hawaiian songs i was thinking:
Liliu E Lei Momi
It's Just An Old Hawaiian Custom
My Little Grass Shack
Hawaiian Hula Eyes
Little Brown Gal
Hawaiian Wedding Song
Beyond The Reef
On The Beach
My Yellow Ginger
Hawaiian War Chant
Lovely Hula Hands Lei Momi
The Hula Hoop Song
Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride
John Cruz-"Hurricane," "Shine On," "Sitting in Limbo," "Island Style"
Hawaiian Style Band-"Live a Little"
Sean Na'auao-"Fish & Poi"
Jake Shimabukuro-"Angel," "Bodysurfing," "Floaters"
Na Leo-"Local Boys," "Hawaiian Eyes," "'E Hihiwai"
Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom-"Haleiwa Hula"
Na Wai - Oh Boy
Koauka - One Woman Man
Maoli - No One
Ka'ena - You Say
Koauka - Up, Down, Side to Side
Living in a Sovereign Land by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
E ala E by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo`ole
Hokule'a Star of Gladness by IZ
Sweet Cherry Bomb by Nuff Sedd
Drop Baby Drop by The Manao Company
Kaulana Na Pua - Na Waihooluu o ke (Na Wai)
Why You - Na Wai Featuring Fiji
Israel IZ Kamakawiwo'ole - Ulili E
Keali'i Reichel - E O Mai- 'Auhea Wale Ana 'Oe
Rebel Souljahz - Darling Angel
^are these good?
i would also like to hire a hula dancer or flame thrower to perform and be at the party for about a 1/2 hour, but it might be a lot of money. how much do you think it would cost? is there even anyone who would do that in new jersey? if you are one/know anyone in central nj, please let me know!
am i missing anything? i want this party to really be perfect! even the littlest idea is appreciated!
need help with:
ideas about food
other Hawaiian drinks
thanks in advance!!

wow! when i was 16 i got a can of beer! you are lucky! make sure you have tons of animals like wild chickens and dogs there, just like on the island here..... rent a few surboards and keep them there. wow! you are so lucky and spoiled!!!
millions of children dont know what a 3 course meal is, but you have everything. you are in for a life of disappointment, life does not operate around a 16 year old with everything.
