Aug 12, 2008
One of the most popular wedding themes for couples is a Hawaiian wedding theme. They are extremely easy and pretty inexpensive to decorate, and a lot of fun for everyone involved. There are many ways to incorporate Hawaiian trends and culture into your wedding decorations and centerpieces. For example, one Hawaiian trend that you can easily use is a luau. In Hawaii, a luau is a gathering of family and friends to enjoy savory food, close company and a great time. So why not turn your wedding reception into a tropical Hawaiian luau? Here are some great ideas for luau wedding centerpieces to help you get started.

Using Flowers and Plants

One thing to be said for Hawaii, they have some of the most beautiful tropical flowers than anywhere else. One great idea for luau wedding centerpieces is to purchase a potted orchid plant, either plastic or real, and place in the middle of the table. These are bright colorful, and make quite a statement of style. Another trendy idea for luau wedding centerpieces is to create your own centerpiece with a small bamboo mat or stand, cover it with crisscrossed large glossy green leaves, and then put a large bloom in the center of each centerpiece. Other options besides are large bloom can be candles, fish bowls or anything else that appeals to you.

Paper Products

One great thing about creating luau wedding centerpieces is that many paper products you can buy at a party store will go great on your tables. For example, get a clear glass jar and glue a tropical looking cloth over the jar. Then, fill the jar with black stones and insert a large paper umbrella with Hawaiian flowers on it in the jar.

Using Fruit

Another popular idea for luau wedding centerpieces is to use some tropical kinds of fruit on your tables. Buy several large pineapples or even coconuts and make them a central part of your centerpiece for a tropical exciting Hawaiian feel. A pineapple will look great with the bamboo mat centerpiece mentioned earlier.
You'll find that guests at a Hawaiian themed wedding will tend to be more relaxed and everybody's going to have a great time.

With just a little creativity and searching for ideas for luau wedding centerpieces and other decorations, you can create a great party for everyone to enjoy with a wedding reception luau. One important fact to remember, in Hawaii a lei is given as a symbol of love, respect and appreciation for all kinds of celebrations. Be sure to incorporate them as well.
