My friend Christine's son, Colton, graduated from high school and we have been working on putting together a tiki themed party for him. The party was yesterday, and boy was it a BUSY day! We started out at 9:30am with a wake-up drink at Starbucks, then off to IKEA to pick-up some last minute party supplies.
By the time we got back to Christine's place, the tables and chairs had been delivered by the rental company and we were in full gear from that point forward. We spent the entire day building a tiki-bar, setting everything up, and doing the final food prep. By about 4pm, I was finally able to run home for a quick shower, get ready and head back over to help mix the rum punch and get the food ready to go out.
The party was a big success and it seemed like everyone had a good time. Everyone loved the video we made and our tiki-decor was a big hit.
Here's a little video so you can see what we did (if you have your computer volume turned on you can jam to a little Bob Marley)...
