Aloha, fellow tropical escape experts. When the weather warms up, we start thinking about the best tropical vacations we’ve been on. We want to bring a little bit of that island charm back home. The palm trees swaying in the breeze, the ocean waves rolling up to the beach — what’s not to love? While we can’t bring Hawaii’s palm trees or ocean views home with us, we can have our own luau to get into that beachy frame of mind!
Your friends at AllFreeHolidayCrafts.com have planned the perfect backyard luau party for your summer staycation! Picture your friends and family sipping tropical drinks with bright-colored decorations all around you. You’ll be shaking your hula hips in no time.
