Nothing says summer celebration more than a tropical party theme. Here’s how.

The weather’s warm, the days are long and with the end of year comes many, many more reasons to celebrate! If you’re looking to put some vibrancy into your next soiree and create some bright, fun memories, there’s no better theme than to go, well, troppo!

Tropical party theming has been around for ages but is seeing a resurgence via a few clever theme variations. For example, throw some extra flamingos and cacti into the mix and you have an on-trend tropical Palm Springs. Give each guest a floral lei to wear and you have a tropical luau.

What are the key ingredients in a tropical party theme?
Colour! Think yellow, orange, pink and green.

Fruit: Yep, we are telling you now that your tropical theme can also be a healthy one! You cannot go past pineapples and watermelon to make this theme sing. Fresh summer fruit brings in the tropical colour theme organically. Fruit kebabs, smoothies, punch – it’s all on theme and it’s all good for you!

Palm trees and general greenery: This is also a great pool party theme if you’ve got a lush, green backyard. Think palm trees, palm fronds on your dessert table, even vases of cut green foliage (Xanadu is a perfect cut foliage option, and you’ll most likely find it in your backyard or over your neighbour’s fence).
