A Hawaiian Hula Luau is a festive Summer Fun theme
with an island twist. Especially great for teen and tweens but suitable for
youngsters as well, this theme has it all: fun, sun and sand. Invitations can be
purchased at online party stores or make your own that looks like a lei or
Hawaiian flower. Barbecue chicken kabobs, grass skirts and colorful leis set the
mood for the luau while the Hawaiian game of Limbo proves "how low can you go?"
The "Hula Luau Murder Mystery Game" will have the whole island wondering "who
done it?" String up paper lanterns and dance the night away with Hawaiian music.
If your party is poolside, why not set up a floating light show? A pineapple or
palm tree shaped cake is sweet and wont cost a lot of dough. Great luau recipes
can be found online. If you choose this them, get ready, an ocean of fun awaits
you and your guests!
A Pool Party is perfect for those that have a pool available. If your child is
young, a wading pool or two will suffice. Send out homemade invitations printed
on bright colored paper in the shape of a beach ball or life preserver and even
add more details with a 3d paint pen. Make your pool party really hot with some
cool decorating ideas. Scatter beach balls all around and other pool toys and
props. Add some inflatable palm trees too. Balloons are great at any party.
Beach ball shaped mylars can be mixed with primary colored latex ones for a fun
effect. Fun games are a must. "Diving for Dollars" is always fun though you
might opt to use spare change instead. Serve food that reeks of summer fun like
hot dogs and multi-colored swim ring jigglers. An awesome cake idea is a ring
cake decorated like a swim ring. There are tons of great ideas for pool parties
that can be found online and you are sure to spark up a few of your own to make
your pool party a splash.
Another great Summer Fun party idea is the Flip-Flop theme. It is an excellent
choice for pre-teen and younger girls. Flip-Flop invitations can be purchased
online or you can easily make your own. Check online party stores for Flip-Flop
mylar balloons to add that extra flair to your party decorations and Flip-Flop
lights are available too. A Flip-Flop pinata serves as a cute prop and a fun
game later. A Flip-Flop dish makes chips and dip even better. Make a cake shaped
like a Flip-Flop and cup cakes too. Keep the gang on their toes by playing the
fun game "Flip Flop Hide and Seek". If you have a teen or tween, this party may
just be the one to sink your toes in.
Younger children love to play in the sand so Shovel and Pail is a Summer Fun
theme they will really dig. With a sand box or two and some sand box toys, the
children will entertain themselves for hours. Decorate with lots of bright
colored balloons and plenty of shovel and pails as well as sand box toys. Let
the children dig in the sand to uncover tiny treasures or small toys. For
dessert, serve pudding in pails topped with crushed graham crackers. If you have
a little one that loves the sand, you may have uncovered the perfect Summer Fun
Surfs Up! This Summer Fun theme is great for boys and girls, and both younger
and older children. Surfs Up invitations are available online or make them
yourself by shaping card stock bright colored paper to look like a surf board.
Surfs Up paper plates, cups, napkins, mylar balloons and table covers make the
party complete. A "Beach Party Scavenger Hunt" will have the guests scrambling
to win. All summer food is fair game at this party like hamburgers, hot dogs and
fruit and veggie trays. Why not serve up a birthday cake shaped like a surf
board for a sweet treat? If you child likes sun, fun and surf, this party will
surely be a smash.
