Traditional Luau Inspired Celebration

For native Hawaiians (and just dreamers ;-)), we’ll cover a range of ideas to help you create the lively and festive feel of a traditional Hawaiian luau.

For starters, we encourage you to consider incorporating authentic Hawaiian music, dance, and costumes to really set the party mood! Below, we’ll share invitation and decor ideas that incorporate natural elements of Hawaiian culture – all to help you create that dreamy luau celebration.

Hawaiian Themed Baby Shower Website

For families who want a low-key shower, or have family and loved ones who live out of town, we offer the idea of ​​a virtual baby shower as an add-on to your in-person event. With a virtual shower, not only are details like registry items and baby information in one easy location, but also your themes and invitations can be personalized (like a personal shower , but without all the challenges and budget constraints! )

If this is something you are considering, we offer a ready-to-go and attractive Hawaiian baby shower themed website, where you can enjoy the experience of having a themed party all from the comfort of your own home.

Luau themed Invitations

A Hawaiian themed baby shower needs luau themed invitations. For a virtual shower, we have a built-in invitation system where invitations are sent via email and text/sms with the luau theme of your choice. In addition, these invitations can go to an unlimited number of guests, and can also be used as an email sending feature, for pregnancy and other exciting updates after the shower!

Invite themes to consider for paper invitations

As for invitations for an in-person shower, we like a luau-themed invitation that includes tropical flowers or fruit from the island. Another option is a festive tiki bar themed invitation, featuring a cute hut and some coconuts…or if you want to create a more beachy vibe, send a customized message in a bottle invitation! Whichever you choose, remember to add any details you want guests to know, such as dress code, registration information, address, start time and RSVP details.

Party Decorations and Arrangements

Tiki Torches and Flower Leis

Tiki torches originated in Polynesian culture as a sign of fertility. As a nod to the culture, tiki torches are a wonderful, festive way to light up the baby shower party area. Lei garlands, whether made with tropical flowers like hibiscus or orchids, or with beautiful artificial flowers, are a delightful way to sweeten the guest experience. For an extra-special detail to your Hawaiian themed baby shower, surprise your guests by greeting them with leis upon their arrival!

Vibrant Tropical Floral Arrangement

Bring the beauty of the Hawaiian islands into your home. When people think of Hawaii, they usually think of fresh tropical flowers like birds of paradise, hibiscus and plumeria. They are wonderful sprinklers in the room, offering beauty and fragrance, and can serve as an elegant choice for a table centerpiece.

Sandy Beach-Themed Backdrops

A backdrop is always a great way to bring people together at a baby shower. One option is to have a beach-themed photo backdrop with props like surfboards, sunglasses, and more lei. For a laugh, also consider homemade backdrops that make everyone look pregnant for a minute! Think of the funny backdrops you’d find on beaches and circuses.

Food and Fruit

Hawaiian Luau Buffet

If you’ve ever been to a traditional luau, you know that a full experience means a pig roast and lots of delicious, traditional food. If you want to offer guests the full experience, consider ordering grilled kalua pig and lomi-lomi salmon, as well as lighter fare like poke, poi, and haupia. Food is a great place to indulge especially if you stay away from big budget decor items like the full-on tiki torch route.

Tropical Fruit Platters

Tropical fruits are a truly wonderful way to create an island-like feel to the party, without breaking the budget. Have fruits like pineapple, mango, and papaya on the short list – for those of you who live in big cities, these should be relatively easy to find.

Tiki Bar with Mocktails options

A tiki bar is a great way to entertain guests and add a touch of festive flair to the party! Some Hawaiian and tropical-inspired mocktail ideas include the Piña Colada Mocktail, Virgin Mai Tai, Hibiscus Vanilla Mocktail, and Blue Hawaii Mocktail Punch.

We love these options because not only do they come in vibrant colors that go with the theme, these drinks can also be made into cocktails (if that suits the guest list better). Whichever option you choose, if not both, we’re sure it will be a hit at the party!


Favors add an extra touch to a Hawaiian baby shower theme. Below we share three fun ideas that will surprise your guests and get them excited for the little one on the way!

Miniature Hawaiian Salt Jars

One of the favors we suggest is mini jars of Hawaiian sea salt as housewarming gifts. This will leave guests with a salty and sweet memory to take home (and perhaps encourage a future trip to the beautiful island!).

Personalized Leis

Leis are a symbol of friendship, love and celebration, making for the perfect addition to a Hawaiian-themed baby shower! A personalized lei is a great idea (especially if you have a smaller invitation list) that will leave a beautiful and lasting memory with your guests.

Tropical Scented Candles

Tropical scented candles also make a charming housewarming gift. Not only are they easy to carry, guests go home with warm scents that remind them of a relaxing day at the beach. For flavor inspiration, we think pineapple, coconut and sandy beaches are sure to hit the spot!

A Hawaiian-themed baby shower will create vivid, lasting memories and leave expectant parents with tons of happy photos to look back on. Whether it’s a virtual shower or an in-person gathering, we encourage you to have fun with this theme!

From mai tai mocktails and Hawaiian themed web invitations to traditional tiki torches as decor, use your creativity to make this event authentic and fun for parents-to-be and guests. We hope these ideas will not only help create an enjoyable baby shower, but also add a spirit of aloha (a way of life in harmony with the people and land around you) at the festival.
