The Ultimate Guide to Plan the Best Hawaiian Luau Quinceanera

Jazmin Alvarez

Dream of traveling to Hawaii and enjoying the fresh ocean breeze under a palm tree? Then you need to bring Hawaii to your quinceanera party!


Say aloha to these bright ideas and plan the ultimate luau quinceanera! From quinceanera dresses to cakes, find everything you need to transport your guests to a tropical paradise.


Your quinceanera dress should be nothing short from bold just like this fun theme suggests. Choose a hot pink, orange, turquoise, or yellow dress to stand out to the max. You can even have a two-toned quinceanera dress such as hot pink and orange for a unique style. If you want something fresher, you can’t go wrong with a two-piece quinceanera dress with an A-line skirt. We recommend keeping your dress simple so it doesn’t clash with your over-the-top decor.


There are so many ways you can decorate your venue so we suggest to go all out with your decor! Pineapples, palm trees, tikis, flamingos, and hibiscus flowers are some of the most popular elements. Fill an empty pineapple with fresh flowers as a genius DIY idea. Set up a tiki bar with your favorite drinks, you can even request luau themed drinks such as pink lemonade or virgin piña coladas. Pom-poms, paper flowers, and leaves will add a fun touch to your decor. Don’t forget to add the iconic “aloha” banner or balloon decor somewhere in your reception.


Your quinceanera cake should be the highlight of your dessert table and we know just the way to make it happen! Take a look at the following luau-inspired ideas. For those looking for a unique idea other than cake, cake pops or cupcakes make delicious and cute treats as well.


Get your luau on at the photo booth! Paper flower backdrops, decorated tiki picture frames, and assorted Hawaiian props will add a tropical twist to your luau quinceanera photo booth.

With so many fun ideas, your guests won’t resist to hula dance the night away on your special day!
