Escape to a tropical island destination without packing a bag… This party plan comes complete with frozen drinks, Caribbean bites and sweet treats, beachy decor and cool island tunes playlist.
Serve exotic frozen drinks such as a classic Pina Colada to cool off the hot night while you savor a tropical island-themed menu of pineapple chicken skewers, shrimp ceviche, and passion fruit cake pops for dessert.
Break out the beachwear as tropical-themed table decorations like sarongs, beach towels, flower leis and candles in clear glass vases nestled in beach sand and adorned with sea shells.
Don’t forget the cool island tunes playlist to complete the mood. Bathing suits optional!
Nothing says island vacation like a pina colada! This iconic 1950’s frozen drink will put you on “island time” in no time. Made with coconut cream, pineapple juice and a splash of caribbean rum, it’s the best of the islands in each frosty refreshing sip.
Chocolate Candy-Dipped Fruit Skewers
Dress up your drinks with chocolate candy-dipped fruits on a skewer. To make these, melt white chocolate candy melts in a bowl, dip a variety of tropical fruits, let them dry on wax paper and skewer on a bamboo cocktail pick.
Savor the sensual taste of the islands with easy-to-make pineapple chicken skewers that are perfectly sized and portable bites… no eating utensils required!
Shrimp ceviche is the perfect tropical dish for seafood lovers with no cooking required. The acids in citrus marinade “cooks” the fish without the need for a stovetop or grill. Serve with plantain chips for the additional island flair and flavor.
Coconut pineapple cake pops are the perfect dessert to finish off your tropical staycation. They are easy to make and even easier to eat!
Cool sounds of the tropics playlist featuring popular island-themed songs all played by a steal drum band. Hit play, close your eyes you can practically feel the sand beneath your feet and the sea breeze! (chick here to buy on Amazon)
