Aloha! Aravilla residents had a magnificent Luau last month. The dining room and atrium were decorated with the help of our residents. We had tall palm trees, bright colored balloons, pineapple center pieces and many other decorations for this festivity. My favorite party prop was the rolling tiki bar. It carried delicious grapefruit cocktails.
All of the residents wore beautiful flowered leis around their necks. Some of the ladies also wore their sun hats to the party. Margie’s outfit was a crowd favorite, she went all out and wore a coconut top with a grass skirt.
It’s not a party with out great food, and this party was no exception. Diana made the most delicious pineapple upside down cupcakes. They were the perfect size. They each had chunks of pineapples and a cherries with brown sugar on top. We washed them down with a secret recipe Tropical Pineapple punch that was served in cups with umbrella straws.
As for music, our old pal Barry was here with all of our favorites. He played typical Hawaiian luau songs like “Tiny Bubbles” by Don Ho. We enjoyed singing, dancing and tapping our toes to all his tunes, The music made us feel like we were on a Hawaiian vacation. Be sure to read the calendar and look out for our next big party.
