Renting a Tiki Bar and Tiki Mugs for Your Event in Milwaukee and Wisconsin
When the weather's nice and you want to spend some time outside, why not throw a luau or a tiki party? Tiki parties, which are Hawaiian or tropical island-themed, perfectly celebrate the spirit of the season, and they help make your guests feel like they've been transported to a different time or place. If you're thinking about throwing a tiki party this year, here are some tips to ensure that your party is a blast -- and that it's as fun and stress-free as possible for you, too.
Rent a Tiki Bar and Tiki Mugs
Don't go through the trouble of building your own tiki bar. Instead, rent a tiki bar from Willie Fun Events. We can bring you a tiki bar that you can set up outside, and we will also bring you stools that guests can sit on while you mix up cocktails. You can also rent tiki mugs from us, which are themed, traditional-Hawaiian style glassware in a fun range of colors. That way, your guests can feel immersed in your theme while they sip their drinks with tiny umbrellas.
Make Clean Up Easy for Yourself
Plan ahead for your tiki party to make sure that post-party is easy and stress-free for you. That way, you can enjoy the party yourself! In addition to renting a bar and mugs so you don't have to disassemble and wash them when it's done, you should also consider using compostable dishware and silverware when you serve food and snacks. That way, you can have a compost bin out so guests can discard their plates and food in when they're finished -- and you don't have to spend time over the sink washing dishes. And, by composting, you're doing something helpful for the environment!
Use Music to Create a Magical Atmosphere
To make people feel the island spirit even more than a tiki bar and mugs, set up a speaker system or music playing device at the tiki bar. Then, download or stream some luau-themed music -- like slack key guitar players or ukulele tunes. Music makes people feel immersed in their atmosphere. When they relax in the pool or on a lounge chair and close their eyes, they might just feel like they're right off of the bright sands of Waikiki in Honolulu.
Serve a Tropical Pu Pu Platter and Authentic Cocktails
A pu pu platter is a platter of food that contains a wide variety of dishes, so people can sample them all. If you want to make a pu pu platter that you can put on your tiki bar for guests to taste, there are some classic dishes you should include. Some of the most important are Kalua pig, SPAM musubi, sliced pineapple, tuna poke, cabbage salad and taro rolls. At the bar, you should also mix up authentic Hawaiian mai tais. The ingredients in mai tais include rum, orange juice, triple sec, lime, sugar and grenadine.
If you're ready to start dancing the hula and sipping on a mai tai, then get in touch with us at Willie Fun Events. We can provide you with a tiki bar and mugs for a party that you and your guests won't soon forget.
