For tables make them low using bricks and plywood. Find cushions or mats for the kids to sit on. Decorate with lots of plants and flowers.
Set up tiki torches outside.
Use pineapples and/or coconuts on the table. Hollow the out and fill with exotic or other flowers.
Find paper palm trees and volcano to decorate tables.
Draw a large palm tree on butcher paper. Or make one...get an empty carpet rolls from a furniture store. Place each roll in a bucket of sand, then add green construction paper leaves or get some large leaves from the woods. Tape or staple to top of the roll. This makes a great palm tree. Take pictures of the kids "underneath".
Also get left over flowers from a flower shop to make leis.
For table decorations, we put tea candles in the middle of small paper plates, and hot glued shells and flowers around the plates.
For homemade coconuts, use brown lunch bags stuffed with newspaper.
Lots of Hawaiian music.
Cover your front door with bulletin paper. Down the center of the door use construction paper letters to spell Aloha.
