Natalie's 5th Luau Birthday

For Pink Saturday 4th Anniversary, we are suppose to share a birthday party post.  Well, I've already given posts from previous Pink Saturday's Celebration.

I looked through my non-digital photos and uploaded the ones from Natalie's 5th Birthday, 2002.  That year I decided I doing a Luau theme. Since Natalie's birthday is in November I wrote a birthday invite that said wear sweaters above or below your tropical ware.   Even though it was mid-November the weather was perfect and we had a fantastic dinner outside.  It was family and a few close friends.  My sister-in-law, Cindra, helped me make a Hawaiian chicken dish and we had rice, ambrosia, pineapples, salad and more.

I bought a Volcano Cake and didn't get the dinosaurs.  Instead I used "sanitized" Small Palm Trees andMc Donald's Lilo and Stich toys (they were on surfboards.)  I thought the cake was perfect.  We had garlands of flowers and hibiscus clips for our hair.  I got all the Luau supplies from Oriental Trader and Napkins and Plates from Party City.  If you have never seen the Oriental Trader site, it's a must see for parties, craft supplies, teacher supplies and more.

 We played the sound track from the "Lilo & Stitch" movie and The Beach Boys (who my Uncles knew way back when).

Then it was time for cake.

Even I, the hostess, got festive too.

Having read this I believed it was really informative.
I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this informative article together.

I once again find myself personally spending a lot of time both reading and
leaving comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
