Aloha & welcome to the birthday luau!
Tropical party and luau supplies are all over the stores in the summertime because it's such a fun party theme!
I have a couple of simple and unique ideas to decorate your luau birthday cake!
First up...no naked cake stand! Let's put a grass skirt on that girl.
Then give the grass skirt a little trim so it's the right length to just reach the table.
- Fold a piece of tape directly over the string so the tape sticks to itself.
- Using scissors, cut down the middle of the piece of tape, also cutting through the string
- You will end up with one long string of flowers with a piece of tape at each end holding all the pieces on the string.
Now do the same thing that you did with the grass skirt. Using double sided tape, attach the lei to the cake stand.
Like the grass skirt, one lei doesn't reach all the way around my cake stand, but it doesn't matter because nobody will see the back. You can always use 2 leis if it's important for the back of the cake stand to look good.
To finish of your cake table decor, there's nothing better than some fresh tropical fruit! Pineapples, mangos, dragonfruit, bananas! You can eat it after the party, so there's no waste...even better!
A little tropical greenery underneath and a flower lei draped around the fruit add some extra fun.
- Cake stand with a grass skirt
- Plain cake with the cutest cake topper in the world
- Fruity accessories
Nothing difficult or time consuming. Not full of plastic junk that you will need to throw away after the party. Just festive, tropical fun!
