Can’t make it to the beautiful beaches of Hawaii this summer? Well, bring the beaches of Hawaii to you! Relaxing under a tiki torch and sipping an exotic drink in a lounge chair with some of your closest family and friends is definitely the next best thing! Invite your friends to participate by wearing a grass skirt and a coconut bra while you dance the night away! Add orchids to the décor and a playlist that includes island music to set the mood and just like that, you’re in full Hawaiian Luau mode!
