Hawaiian party: script, contests, costumes and music. Hawaiian-style party ideas for adults and children
When it is cold and sad in the street, it is raining or snowing, the soul asks for a holiday, and not some, but a noisy and long party. This, of course, can be called an excellent way to lift the mood, as well as a good opportunity to gather all your friends in a large circle.
Colorful and very soulful!
The first question that confronts the future organizer of the party: in what form to hold it? Will it be friendly gatherings with hot tea or a positive dance party? Definitely, it should be bright and fun, and for the party to be truly successful, it can be made themed. For example, Hawaiian! Hawaiian party is not only a riot of colors, but also a tropical mood, catchy South American rhythms and much more.
The host of the party will have to solve a number of issues: sending out invitations, choosing the time and place, decorating the room, musical accompaniment of the holiday, thematic menu, leisure of guests and much more.
Where and when to spend? How to invite guests?
Such a theme party is even affordable for owners of a small one-room apartment. What to say about the possibility of its holding in a large spacious apartment or country house! On a small square the party will be more united and friendly, and on a large one - more massive.
Hawaiian party can be held for any reason. It can be a birthday, wedding, corporate party, and New Year. In any case, the organizers will benefit from this.
It would be great if the house has a pool. Then the entertainment program will add to the cocktails in the pool, swimming and water games.
Party invitations can be voiced orally to all guests, call them or send invitations on social networks. You can be original and make nice postcards. And they will be made, like the entire Hawaiian party, with their own hands! Coconut adorned with colored ribbons and a note indicating the time and date of the evening are quite suitable for an invitation.An excellent option for the invitation card can be a flower cut out of paper and decorated with sparkles with the text written on it. In general, everything will depend on the fantasy of the organizer.
Preparation and design of the premises
So, the room is chosen, the holiday time is approaching. It's time to take care of decorating the venue! For this simple, but important business you will need:
- Multicolored flags and flashlights.
- Artificial and fresh flowers.
- Pictures and photos with images of islands and beaches.
- Seashells and sea stones.
- Wicker mats (if any).
- Large plants resembling palm trees.
The most important thing - do not be afraid to overdo it with the brightness of the design. The more colorful the room will look, the more successful the atmosphere will be able to create. Large "palm trees" can be placed along the walls, but so that they do not interfere with the conduct of competitions and dancing. The walls themselves will be beautifully decorated with flags and lanterns. Flowers can be collected in garlands and hang furniture and other interior details, such as mirrors or windows. Seashells and pebbles will give the room a sea spirit, and photos with seascapes will help to create the right mood.
Beforehand it is better to remove fragile items and excess household appliances from the room. It is best to leave only the stereo or tape recorder so that the merry guests do not accidentally stumble upon anything of value.
What dress guests? Party dress code
Finally, the organizer decided how and how the room will be decorated, where his Hawaiian party will be held. Costumes must also be specified in advance, the selected type of attire will need to be specified in the invitation.
If the party is held by the pool, guests will need to take care of their swimwear. You will only need to slightly decorate them.
You can ask guests to prepare outfits as close as possible to traditional Hawaiian robes. For girls, a grass skirt will become such an outfit (instead of grass you can use green pieces of fabric), a bra made from coconut halves and bright hairpins with flowers. Guys can dress in well-known Hawaiian shorts with a wide cut and colorful shirts. Do not forget to take pictures in costumes! When friends ask about how this Hawaiian party went, the photos will be the best proof of a good time.
As an additional decoration, the organizer can make holiday Hawaiian wreaths - lei (or ask guests about it). They are hung around the neck of the incoming guests. All the action is accompanied by a kiss on the cheek and the traditional Hawaiian greeting "Aloha!".
Music. Rhythms of the islands
What is a Hawaiian party without music? Of course, for such a holiday, club music or pop music, which is familiar to many people, is completely unsuitable. The organizer will need to acquire a selection of songs and instrumental tracks corresponding to the theme of the evening. Music for a Hawaiian party is characterized by the presence of a large number of drums and several ethnic Hawaiian instruments (for example, a ukulele guitar). Suitable music can be found if you walk through music stores looking for a CD with recordings.
Hawaiian party menu
Hawaii is a picturesque corner of nature, full of various fruits, and the Hawaiian-style party is a piece of exotic island in the house. Therefore, it will be absolutely logical to have all kinds of fruit salads, ice cream balls, jelly balls on the festive table.If you want to pamper guests with hot dishes, it is ideal to serve a kebab of seafood and dried fruit (for example, bananas).
What else can a Hawaiian party do without? With your own hands you can prepare alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails that will delight all guests. It can be “Mojito”, “Pina Colada”, “Cuba Libre” and other cocktails. Also as a drink fit the Cointreaux or Malibu liqueurs.
For a snack, you can chop cheese, fruit or berries, and then collect the ingredients in small canapes and fasten them with skewers or toothpicks.
Competitions and entertainment
What should the Hawaiian party begin and end with? The holiday scenario is perhaps the most important thing to prepare for the organizer. If the guests start to get bored, you can say that the party failed. Therefore, you need to think about fun leisure, participation in which will entice each of the guests.
1. For example, intellectuals will likequiz with various questions about Hawaii:
- Hula-hula - what is it? (national dance).
- What word is used for greeting and farewell in Hawaii? (Aloha!).
- What is Hawaii: a county, a state in the United States or an island nation? (US state).
These and similar questions may be proposed for discussion by the guest teams or each guest separately. For the correct answers you can award small prizes.
2."Dance with a wreath."It will take one Hawaiian wreath. All guests can participate in this competition at once. One of the players puts a wreath on his neck, rhythmic music turns on, everyone dances. While the music is playing, participants should pass a wreath to each other, putting it on the neck dancers. When the music is turned off, the player who left the wreath is eliminated from the game. The winner receives a prize.
3."Rope".A very famous game, popular in Hawaii and long established in our countries. Without it, not a single Hawaiian party! The essence of the game: two participants pull a rope, a kerchief over the floor, or hold a stick in their hands for different ends. The task of the players: go to the music under the string, without touching it. Pass should be, leaning back and sagging in the back. The difficulty is that with each lap the rope is lowered lower and lower. The winners can be several players who have managed to overcome the rope at the lowest level.
Children's Hawaiian party
The child has a birthday.Why not arrange a real Hawaiian party for him and his friends? Of course, the Hawaiian party for children will be slightly different from the adult. First, the lack of alcohol. Juices, fruit drinks, sparkling water, milk and non-alcoholic cocktails can be served at the festive children's table.
Costumes for children should not be as frank as for adults. There will be quite enough bright shorts and skirts, multi-colored T-shirts or tops. But parents can not skimp on jewelry: a variety of bracelets, beads and rings would be very appropriate. It will be great if the children themselves think over their costumes for the holiday. This will positively affect their creative thinking.
To hold such a party can not be a simple presenter, but an actor disguised as the famous cartoon character Sponge Bob or his friend Patrick Naval Star (by the way, a lover of Hawaiian shorts and shirts).
Plus the ingredients - we get an enchanting mood!
If the soul wants something bright and fresh, new impressions, unforgettable emotions, all that is needed is a Hawaiian party! With our own hands, each of us can create the most real summer wonder at home.And it can be done at any time of the year. Aloha, friends!
