Are you thinking of throwing a great party for the end of year?
New year party? A fun Christmas party? December babies Birthday party?
How about a Hawaiian Luau for a theme? You’ll have a great time I can assure you. Why? That’s because I’m blessed to experience Luau party with Kinohimitsu recently. Kinohimitsu just recently launch a new product and they did it in style with a Luau party. It has definitely grabbed my attention.
Thanks to The Butterfly Project Malaysia too! Thank you for giving this caterpillar a spot.
Here’s how you can plan your Luau party.
1) Set date and time and plan for food.
So we have chosen a theme for our party. As usual, we need to set a date and time.
The Kinoluau party that I’ve been to was a night time. It’s a great opportunity to relax and enjoy after work. No matter when you chose to set up your Luau party. There’s definitely gonna been so much fun. This subsequently brings us to the type of food to be prepared for the party.
Are we going to serve for dinner or lunch? One thing for sure a BBQ is definitely suits the Luau theme. Includes fresh tropical fruits on the table and you’re got to good. (A cheeky trick to get people to eat healthy even at a party)
During the Kinoluau party, we had BBQ chicken, fish and Satay (a Malaysian favourite). The caterer also served fresh cooling watermelon. Besides that I remembered eating nasi goreng and small portions tid-bits like mini sausages and fish balls. They were delicious.
2) Pick your venue
Depending on the number of your party guests, Pick a spot with lawn or open space so your Luau guests can enjoy their party comfortably and dance the luau dance on dance floor. Greenery and lots of natural plants and trees as essential to set the mood for a luau. Another altenative is at the beach or at a pool side.
Kinohimitsu has introduced me to Vila Manja which at Jalan Damai Off Jalan Tun Razak. It is a cozy bungalow with lots of greeneries which is prefect for the luau. It is alsoa very nice Spa. I was treated with a nice Shoulder and back massage during the party. I can feel the muscle knot on my upper back gone and I’m thinking of trying Vila Manja package next time.
3) Design your invitation
Throwing a super awesome party when to design your own invitation (or to have a professional do it for you). In the era of smart phone and social media, it is easy to get your invitation send across. For a Hawaiian luau, you can use flowers, tiki, coconut with bright colourful fonts to decorate your invitation.
Just look at the Kinohimitsu luau invitation below. Eye-catching isn’t it?
4) Decorate your venue with Hawaiian theme.
At the Kinoluau party, the decoration was super amazing. They have a Luau girl hanging around the spa. There’s also a nice Luau banner out in the front gate. There’re Luau girl balloon and lots of bright fun colours every wear. Make sure to have a welcome booth and at the Kinoluau party, I was greeted with my own bright colour leis. Feels like a VIP. 🙂

Kinohimitsu has also set up fours little booths for the party-goers. Among them are mini Spin-a-win booth and goodie bag booth. You can steal this brilliant idea to make your party more interactive and interesting.
There is also a mini bar serving Kinohimitsu best selling beauty drinks. They served them in this cute mini cocktail glasses and it tastes so good. I haven’t tried any of Kinohimitsu beauty drinks and at the party, my heart is sold.

5) Set up photobooth
Partying is another reason for camwhoring. Your guests will enjoy the party more if you have a photobooth set up. I had so much fun posing at Kinoluau party’s photobooth by 123Cheese.my. The provide such beautiful backdrop with lights and a camera man. It was so much fun playing around with the props. Just make sure that the props are mainly Hawaiian theme.

6) Party games and dance
What is a party without a lot of fun. Pick a party games that a lot of people can participate at a time. This make your party more personal and interactive. More reason for people to mingle around.
At Kinoluau party, we have two games organised by Kinohimitsu dietitian and there were lots of fun. Being one of the caterpillar in Butterfly Project Malaysia community, I get to know my fellow butterflies as we were assigned to a team.
What is a Luau without dance? We were entertained with sexy, provocative belly dance and some butterflies even did a luau dance. It was so much fun!
So, that is 6 simple steps on organising your own Luau party based on my experience partying with Kinohimitsu.
Simple right? I feel that one of the best thing on going to a themed party is the outfit. I’ve made my own Flower crown and bangle. Luckily I found a coconut mini pouch at home. It’s goes well with the whole outfit.
Here’s a OOTD picture of me going to Kinoluau party.
