So, my mom is turning 50 and we are going to have a big (100+ people) party in our backyard with a Hawaiian theme. The invites have been printed on tropical drink trimmed paper and they say to wear "hawaiian shirts and grass skirts".
Aside from the general, tiki-torch/palm tree type decor, do you guys have any interesting suggestions? We are going to have a lady there making tacos to order (Not Hawaiian, I know, but we like them!) so I'm just planning to make a few side dishes to go with that. I'd love some non-obvious ideas, that won't cost an arm and a leg...My dad is footing the bill, but I don't want to give him a heart attack.
One last thing...I've already bought 9 dozen chocolate bars and want to make the personalized wrappers myself. Any ideas, suggestions or how-tos for that project?
Thank you so much!
