Luau party table setting

Luau table is a children’s party version of a traditional Hawaiian outdoor feast. Seated cross-legged on cushions (pin-covered in bright plastic) at low-table (3/4″ plywood 3′ x 6′ on 10″ legs), children have before then an eye-catching array of party favors: Japanese parasols, tops, yo-yos, fans, and, also to take home, their own sweetmeat tree.

Stylized fish table mats are cut from Pellon, table covering is a paper imitation of a Hawaiian stained tapa bark. Over all hangs a cluster of bright Japanese lanterns.
