Luau Date Night

Create a relaxing evening to remember with this luau date night!  Transform your room into a tropical escape with a few supplies and fun food.  This is one of the best date nights we have had together. Come dressed ready for a romantic stay-at-home getaway.

For the Decor

Save money by using decorations you may already have at home!

  • Beach towels: Great for table cloths or rugs
  • Ferns or dried grass stems
  • Display a pineapple on a cake platter
  • Air mattress or floor lounge pillows
  • Paper lanterns:  Here are some really cute ones in tons of colors from Oriental Trading.  A set runs $10-15.
  • Tropical Photos: Use a calendar, pictures from your travels, or photos from travel brochures.
  • Aloha Nui Loa: This cute sign means “very much love” in Hawaiian.  Download the free printable

Floating sand candle.  Cute decor for a Luau Date Night

  • Floating sand candle – Find a tropical scent.  We love Coconut Leaves from Bath and Body Works.  Set the candle on top of a small glass inside a vase.  Then fill around the sides with sand.

For the Food

If you’re looking for some time savers, set out a cracker and cheese plate, order ham and pineapple pizza, and pick up some tropical pre-cut fruit like pineapple, strawberries, and kiwi.

Wanna go all out? Here are some Luau ideas from!  Make some tropical fruit kabobs and a chocolate lava cake to go with your dinner.

For the Mojito Bar

These Cuban drinks are so refreshing with a mint and lime blend.  The recipe is for a single serving, but you could adjust it to make a pitcher.

Spend your luau looking at romantic beach destinations! For After Dinner

Spend time looking at travel books, or order some beautiful travel brochures for free! Go to Delta Vacations, Sandals, and Beaches to request their materials in the mail. These take 7-10 days, so plan ahead.  We would love to do another all-inclusive beach trip in the coming years, and the information is motivation to save.

Enjoy your luau!
