Tofa!

A family friend of ours recently moved to Samoa to teach school for a year! Before she left we couldn't pass up the opportunity to throw her a fun going away party.

We stuck with a Pacific Islands theme to get her all prepped and ready to go.


We got out our leis

Jungle vines (my mother in law made these - aren't they awesome?!)

Shells

And topped the tables with "sand" (breadcrumbs!) and palm fronds

Grass skirts (even for the soda!)

and of course our "rock" painted sheet so we could make a volcano.

We had rice "volcanoes" topped with sweet pork "lava" (as seen above in the "volcano")

and "build your own" fruit kabobs and dip.

Lots of flowered garland and tiki torches

Of course I got too busy stuffing my face to take pictures of the rest of the party, but belive me, it was fun!
