I made the invitations look like flip flops. Since purple is her favorite color, so i used purple card stock. punched 3 holes and added a ribbon and a flower.
The invitation says:
The torches are lit
The theme is set..
We're having a luau
you'll never forget..
is turning eight
So, hula on over to celebrate..
Though Hawaii is far away
We'll make palm trees & grass skirts sway..
(Then the party info)
I bought burlap for Joann's. I always use coupons. I got it for only $5.00. I used it for the banner, center pieces for the tables and i had left over too. I used yarn to write "Welcome to Anastasia's Island". Then my husband helped me to staple it around two posts.
I did a wreath on the door and i put the umbrellas tooth picks all around it. Printed card stock with "Aloha Happy Birthday Anastasia" and glued it at the back.
Most of the stuff, i bought from the dollar store and oriental trading.
My daughter had this umbrella when she was little that we bought for her from Disneyland, so i added that too.
She wanted so bad a chocolate fountain, so i did the Tiki bar and had the chocolate fountain there.
I bought some craft. For the boys, color some masks and beach balls. For the girls, make some Luau bracelets.
I also, hired someone to come as a Hawaiian dancer. This girl is amazing. I use her every year.
