Luau School Dance

We had a ton of fun putting together this Luau for a school dance. Our place cards were a huge hit with the kids, from elementary age to high school. 

 For table centerpieces, we used sand, sea shells, table cards, and glass vases with candles. For the table cards, we chose names of Hawaiian islands to go with our table numbers. They stuck in the sand quite nicely with large popsicle sticks.

 Then we painted a quick palm tree on the glass, spread a few leis around the table and covered the tables in different clothes– in pink, blue, red, orange, and yellow. The room looked so bright and breezy!
For each person's place setting, we used the Luau themed cartridge on our handy Cricut to cut placemats in fish, sun, and palm tree shapes. We wrapped the utensils in a hibiscus patterned napkin and secured it with homemade napkin rolls- aka paper and a touch of glue stick. The menu cards doubled as a timeline for the evening as well.

Every serving table was wrapped with colorful roll paper and a grass skirt. The Surf Shack was the DJ table. Aloha!

Gorgeous tissue paper flowers dotted the room. Adding a stem with a brown pipe cleaner definitely took those flowers to a new level of DIY sophistication.
