As you can safely assume, birthdays are a big deal in our house. We celebrate the actual birthday with a fun activity and a more intimate dinner. We plan a friends party for each child and then we also host a joint family party for both kids (about 25 people and only our immediate families).
This year, I wanted to do a luau theme for our family party. In keeping with a good “party approach” (see this post to learn more), our guests were greeted with leis, hibiscus clips for the ladies’ hair and deliciously sweet pineapple coconut smoothies.
