Default Luau family dance

Okay ladies what should I put my daughter in? I really do not want to do the cheesey grass skirt and we are in Chicage were it may still be a bit chilly.

Any ideas??

When my daughter turned 5, she had a luau birthday party. So fun! I bought her this inexpensive dress to wear (with a shirt under it for warmth). It's so adorable, and the price is so good. It's good material too and she has worn it many times since.

I would probably go with a green tutu with leggings under it. And a lei wrapped around the waistband. Maybe a long sleeve leo with a hawaiian print shirt over it. Either a shorter length or tied in a knot. Of course with a cute flower in her hair and a lei. I was going to do this for a Halloween costume for one of my girls. Can you tell I have given it some thought?!?!?

LOL, I know. When my daughter said she wanted a pink flamingo party, all my friends laughed. I did even put one in the yard on the day of her party. I can only imagine what the neighbors were thinking.

I thought about a tutu ~ do you know how they do the ones that are tied in knots? Is it as simple as just makig it regular and just knotting the ends?


Thanks everyone for all the good ideas!

I got my daughter a (very) easy tutu from the dollar store, actually. It was a few years ago, but after looking at it, I was like how easy would that be! It was just a piece of elastic for around the waist, then they used different colored green ribbons (slightly different widths & ribbon styles) and they took the long pieces of ribbon, folded in half, put the one end with the "loop" (not the two ends) behind the elastic waistband part and just above it, take the two ends that are the cut ends, go up and pull both through the "loop" part (which when you do this, tightens around the elastic waistband). Does that make sense??? If not, I'll watch this post & post a pic. It's SOOOOO simple, just hard to explain when just typing it out....and then the two loose ends hang down and make the "skirt" and the ends had a knot (of course, you'd probably want to heatseal the ends) to add some weight. Clear as mud???
