Tiki Party Crafts

Tissue Paper Bouquet of Flowers

  • Fold a larger piece of tissue paper many times to make a square shape
  • Draw a heart shape on the tissue paper and cut it out (making many colourful petals)
  • Use a pipe cleaner for the stem – poke it through the point end of the heart shaped tissue paper. Take another heart and rotate it a little and poke it through, until you have used all the hearts.
  • Fold the end of the pipe cleaner so the hearts will not fall off
  • Fold up the heart petals and wrap the pipe cleaner with a small piece of clear tape
  • Cut green tissue paper into a heart (for a leaf) – make two hearts
  • Glue it onto a piece of pipe cleaner (put pipe cleaner in between the two hearts)
  • Wrap the leaf pipe cleaner around the stem pipe cleaner to finish off the flower
  • Repeat as many times for the number of desired flowers

Sand Art

  • Use a thicker paper, glue, and colored sand (you can either buy this or make it with food coloring)
  • Draw a design lightly with pencil
  • Cover the design with glue
  • Cover the glue with the sand color of choice


Tiki Bar Party Drinks

At your Tiki Bar Party you definitely need the traditional Tiki bar drinks (also known as Boat Drinks, Umbrella Drinks, and ‘Girly’ Drinks). Usually they have Rum, a sweet liquor and fruit juices which are garnished with fruit and Maraschino cherries.

  • Zombie
  • Margarita
  • Blue Hawaii
  • Mojito
  • Caipirinha
  • Gin Pahit
  • Planter’s Punch


Tiki Party Food

  • BBQ chicken (looks great on Kabobs)
  • Pig roast or ham (with pineapple on top and lemon juice)
  • Cheese and grape tray (hint: in the center use the top of a pineapple – top third of the edible party and the green topper)
  • Cut up fruit – serve in an emptied out watermelon (cut opening in a zig zag shape)
  • Veggie tray – serve on a fun tiki tray
  • Beach Cupcakes – have some tops with blue water (use food coloring) and gummy sharks and others with sand tops (use grated graham crackers) and put in a drink umbrella (will look like a sun umbrella on the beach)
