Aloha Summer Party Details & FREE Printable!


The party decor for the Aloha Summer birthday party didn't start at the dessert table but rather at the front door.  I made a colorful wreath using a Styrofoam ring and placed cocktail umbrellas all around it. Then, I added a matching ribbon and hung it on our front door. The guests were welcomed with leis and hula skirts to wear.   


I made hair clips from a flower bouquet I purchased at a dollar store that I added to tree branches I found from our yard which made the perfect centerpiece for our family room.  Girls chose their favorite flower clip to go along with their aloha accessories.



I styled our console table in our foyer by adding a welcome sign to greet the guests and it also served as the place to hold the favors for the party guests.


  I placed white frames with pictures of the girls on the table.  Using a flower punch, I punched flowers from papers in the birthday party colors and used "pop stickers" to add them to the frame.  To add a fun touch, I embellished each flower with a piece of candy.


I found beach pails for a dollar each at Michaels that made for the perfect containers to hold the loot for the favors.  The dollar store also had packages of bubbles for a dollar and I thought they would be cute to wrap the bottle wrappers around them from the Aloha printable collection.  At the store, I also found water squirt toys that I placed in the pails.  


Included in the favor pails were Christina from Cookies Are My Canvas' beautiful cookies. The favors were adorned with the Aloha Summer favor tags that I made using my favorite craft punch.


Last but not least, I added flowers that I made from tissue paper.  They were super easy to make and they turned out beautifully.  Tutorial coming soon!



Activities for the party consisted of coloring hibiscus flowers and beach themed coloring pages, a paper leis craft station (tutorial coming soon), hula lessons and a tiki piñata. 

 I am excited to share with you a free printable from the Aloha Summer birthday party.

The Aloha banner can be cut as squares or cut into circles, add a lollipop stick and ribbon and you can use as a cake topper or table decorations. 

Enjoy!
