Learn the Dance Like the Natives
One of the best parts about Hawaii is all the culture and rich tradition. If you want to embrace that at your own luau, then by all means you must include this very fun and very easy to pick up Hawaiian luau party icebreaker. You can either hire an instructor, get a video that teaches you how, or simply wing it and just have fun. Whichever method you go for, you want to teach guests all about the luau as this is the traditional dance of this region and it's so fun to do. If you can swing your hips back and forth, then you can absolutely pick up this dance. Half of the fun is to laugh while you try to learn it, but the point is that you all have to take turns and enjoy the learning process.
Recreate a Tropical Garden
The lush vegetation is one of the things about this beautiful region that so many people embrace and celebrate. If you happen to love the look and all that it stands for, then why not use this as a perfect Hawaiian luau party icebreaker because it doesn't take much but imagination. Use an area that is adorned with beautiful flowers such as a standing garden or recreate your own with a bunch of potted plants and gorgeous flowers. You can use this as a backdrop to serve Mai Tais and other Hawaiian drinks for guests to mingle, chat, and enjoy some fun. Sometimes the environment itself is as much the activity as a game, and this is an instance where enjoying the scenery can keep guests amused and lingering for hours.
A Real Live Luau
If you want something interactive and yet theatrical then you can create a real live luau right there in your backyard. If you want a fun Hawaiian luau party icebreaker that gets guesses watching in amazement and maybe even trying out some new moves, then this is what you've been searching for. You can hire real luau dancers to come in for the guests entertainment, and be sure to create the perfect scene with a fire that you've built and all the bells and whistles. Then offer up a fresh flower lei to each guest as they enter along with a Mai Tai and let them sit back and watch the show. Invite them to get up if they feel the beat and want to be a part of things. This is so interactive and yet so entertaining!
Roasting of the Pig
One of the traditions in Hawaii also happens to be one of the most enjoyable of the Hawaiian luau party icebreaker. You just hire a company that specializes in pig roasts or you try it out yourself if you are brave enough. The main scene and backdrop is the actual roasting of the pig just like it's done in Hawaii. The best part is that you also have your main meal selected and cooking for you, so all you have to do is serve up the sides to go with it. You want to be sure to make it authentic with great music, great drinks, and great surroundings so that guests can enjoy one of the most excellent Hawaiian luau party ideas. It doesn't take much but an authentic touch to get guests in the spirit of things and having a blast!

Luau party food is delicious and easy to put together. Consider some of these Hawaiian party favorites!
- You may not be able to roast a whole pig, but bar-be-que is a great Hawaiian luau party idea! Serve it with buns and coleslaw on the side.
- Tropical fruit will be a great addition to your luau menu! Pineapples, mango, bananas, kiwi, papaya, and oranges are all good choices.
- Macaroni salad is a Hawaiian party favorite. Toss cooked macaroni with a dressing made from grated carrots and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper.
- Fried rice is an island staple. Toss cooked rice with chicken, seafood, or vegetables and fry in soy sauce and sesame oil to recreate this taste of the tropics.
- Huli-Huli chicken is a Hawaiian mainstay. It is first roasted, and then tossed in a sauce made from brown cane sugar, soy sauce, and ginger.
- Pipikaula is traditional Hawaiian beef jerky. Pile trays high with the treat that folks can grab without missing a beat on the dance floor!
Serve up one of these sweet desserts for your Hawaiian luau birthday party!
- If you've got an abundance of coconut, break shells into three or four pieces to create small "dishes". Serve scoops of ice cream or sherbet directly in the shell for a creative tropical twist on the party favorite.
- Pineapple upside down cake is a tantalizing leap from traditional birthday cake for a luau! One easy version is to mix melted butter with brown sugar for a gravy-like consistency. Spread over the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan until coated, then arrange pineapple rings across the bottom. Plop a cherry into the center of each before carefully pouring prepared yellow cake mix into the pan and baking. For more tropical flavor, add the juice from the pineapples to the yellow cake mix.
- Create a fun tropical cake by coating a yellow cake with white icing and shredded sweetened coconut. Use chocolate icing to write out "Happy Birthday" in blocky bamboo print.
