More Tiki Party Tips

15 April 2009 No Comment

Springtime is upon us and it is time to start planning to throw a tiki party at your new tiki bar.  From time to time we like to throw out ideas that we stumble across to help you throw the perfect tiki party.

Tiki Evites – the fine folks at Evite now have a few nifty tiki-themed templates to get your guests into the right mindset right from the start.  Evite has become the standard in inviting guests to any type of party and these are a-ok.

Set up a House Drink Menu – some of your guests will know their tiki drinks, some won’t.  Pick out a few of your specialties and scribble them onto a chalkboard.  This will help your guests feel more comfortable as they select a cocktail and will limit your ingredient shopping list a bit.

Proper Tiki Tunes – we’ve provided a few suggestions in the past and probably should do another music list soon.  Spend some time loading up your iPod with a respectable island playlist.  You cannot expect to set up a snazzy tiki bar, mix up a round of stiff rum concoctions, and expect your guests to be content with ZZ Top (on second thought, maybe you can…).

Tropical Coconut Cups – if you don’t have a full set of tiki mugs to share with your guests, these coconut cups will give you some island flair at a reasonable price.  They cost less than $1 each and all cocktails taste sweeter when consumed from a fake coconut mug!
