Luau Dreaming…

Some good friends of ours host a huge Luau party every summer.  We have been lucky enough to be on the invite list for about 7 years.  Our friends have a really incredible back yard to start with, and then they spend about 3 days decorating and setting up just for the party (photo above is just a tiny peek).  Last year I did a dessert display of cookies and cupcakes (some are pictured below), and I’ll be doing the desserts again this year.  I want to change it up just a bit from last year, so I’ve been dreaming about pineapple, coconut, chocolate… and pretty luau colors!
Here are some pretty images to get you in the Luau spirit too…
