  • Oriental Trading is the best place for party supplies. Do you have a pool at your house or know of a place that will allow you to rent out their pool? I would look into that first. As far as games, I would do a limbo game, hula dancing contest, and maybe a scavenger hunt. For the food, I would stick to hot dogs, hamburgers, fresh fruit, etc, but if you want something different here is a website that has some good ideas for party food for a luau.

  • Dollar tree has really good luau decorations right now. Walmart has many luau items on clarence right now.

    Other than that, my favorite place to get luau supplies is Party City. I have bought more party things there than I need. haha.

  • Throw a boneless pork roast in your crockpot and let cook on low overnight. Next day, cut it into 1 inch cubes, thread them on skewers with pineapple chunks and marashino cherries. Grill them with sweet and sour sauce. I love those things! You can also use vidalia onions in place of the cherries, but you definitely have to have pineapple - canned works fine.

  • Kalua pork with white rice and spam musubi if you want to be truly authentic you could even go for the poi but its kinda on the disgusting side. Lived in hawaii for a few years and the pork is very traditional the spam is just a local treat.
