Using protea in the flower arrangements is an easy way to create a sophisticated Hawaiian theme. The flowers are common in Hawaii and make elegant arrangements. Fortunately, a local grower, Rooster Ridge, grows protea and sells them every Sunday at the local farmers’ market. The large pink flowers make an especially striking tropical arrangement.

It’s easy for party decorations to look gaudy or cheap, especially when you don’t want to spend a lot of money on one evening. The party decorations come from sells on Etsy, who sold paper lanterns and cocktail umbrellas in bulk, by color and style, so it’s easy to keep the party elegant and still festive. They have such a huge selection that we are able to find something that looks Hawaiian and tasteful. A few paper lanterns and umbrellas for the drinks and we’re set.
