It's that time of year again, time to Tiki with Tiffany.
Guests were greeted by the bright fun cocktail umbrella wreath that signals party fun inside. This year I added the Aloha banner made by A Well Crafted Party.

Since I do this party annually using the decorations from year to year, I need to change it up a bit. These tiki masks and flowers are usually on my mantle and the lanterns normally hang from the trees outside. This year they went perfectly with the banner made by Itsy Belle

One thing that helps keep the cost down is by making this party potluck. Guests always ask what they can bring and often times it gives them a chance to try a recipe out. I made spam/pineapple kabobs that everyone was excited about. I really need to make more next year.I also made these Pineapple Smokies that made my house smell sooo good. They were tasty too.
The Pineapple-Mango guac called for tomatoes too, which I thought I had and later found out I didn't. The guests loved it! They all said no tomatoes were needed.
Not having kids I don't have a kids room or toys. The parents know this and were fabulous and brought toys for their kids. I did have a few fun kid things that they enjoyed playing with. Bubbles and temporary tattoos were a hit.
Come back Wednesday for desserts and party favors Woo Hoo!!
