Attendees of luau parties expect a tropical feast. Therefore, you ought to set the table with barbecued meats and hotdogs, and tropical fruits such as pineapples, banana, and papaya. Traditional luau beverages such as pina colada can be beautifully served in glasses adorned with little cute umbrellas. Make sure to have a variety of dishes to satisfy all tastes.
A luau party like all parties is made alive with music. Ukuleles are unique instruments in Hawaiian music and you can have speakers playing them in the background of your party. For more entertainment, invite the party guests to participate in a limbo competition.
