Aloha from the Raleigh Marriott City Center, where our client has asked us to throw a Luau for their guests, complete with decor and entertainment.

Our decor starts at the entrance, where guests make their way past lush greenery and under the thatched palapa, through the doors and into the ballroom. Dining rounds are set in tropical colored pintuck linens, and complementary colored napkins are adorned with seashells. Chairs are covered in black spandex, and accented with colorful bands.

Centerpieces were created using natural elements of wood and rattan, seashells and tropical flora. Votives placed around the table provided a nice touch of ambient lighting.

To further extend the luau experience, we provided a thatch-roofed bar where guests could order tropical refreshments. Another detail was the strategic lighting which cast silhouettes of palm trees along the walls.

To entertain our guests, we worked with Elevate to create an authentic Luau show. Our announcer provided guests with the history and culture of the islands, interspersed with lively dance acts.

We had so much fun bringing this taste of Hawaii to our home town, and nothing gives us greater satisfaction than knowing our client’s guests were left with a fun and memorable experience.
