A visit to Hawai’i must include the quintessential experience of a Polynesian luau. Island Events works with Hawaii’s best performers and chefs to create a unique experience of locally sourced, traditional and innovative luau celebrations. First time visitors and return guests alike will discover an Island Event luau is refreshingly uplifting and guaranteed to create goosebump moments every time.
Step back in time to a simpler state of mind… Vintage Hawaii conjures up iconic symbols: aloha shirts and grass skirts, hula girls and surfer dudes, grass huts and food trucks, leis and ukuleles. All these elements come together for a classic vintage Hawaii party in the warm tropical breezes of Hawaii.
Night Under the Stars
Island Events created a relaxed event for a group that included families. Picnic tables, giant games, market-style fare, a s’mores station, dance band, photo booth, and even a high-powered telescope and a professional astronomer for families to stargaze together made it a special indoor-outdoor event for all ages.
Pacific Aviation Museum
Travel back in time with Island Events to the 1940’s Hawaii, a very dramatic time in American history! We designed this afternoon affair with an unexpected twist. Contrasting the somber backdrop of WWII fighter jets, clipper planes, and vintage helicopters in vintage military colors with a modern, bright palette of linens and florals, we created a unique experience that was as uplifting as it was steeped in history.
Luau means a feast in the Hawaiian language. Island Events’ created a beachfront luau at Four Seasons Hualalai on the island of Hawaii. Ka’upulehu, where the resort stands today, was once an ancient fishing village where the Hawaiian ancestors were able to sustain life using the natural resources so abundantly available. An exceptional performance of traditional Polynesian dances entertained guests as they feasted on locally-sourced Hawaiian fare with the ocean waves breaking on the shore in the background of this stunning location.
Dinner on the USS Missouri
Experience a once in a lifetime dinner on the deck of the USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor, the site where World War II formally ended. Walk the red carpet to the cocktail reception held on the bow of this iconic battleship. After a tour of the ship’s bunk rooms, captain’s quarters and the famous “surrender room”, a catered dinner is accompanied by a traditional 1940’s style USO show. Experience history, make memories.
Corporate Camping Retreat
Island Events produced this corporate camping retreat for iQMetrix, a Canadian firm with a culture of accountability and giving back. Take 200+ SHIFTPOD tents, add camping gear for 300, set up camp on 720 acres of the Turtle Bay Resort’s stunning land, center mind, body, and the the team-building spirit. What you get is a break-away from traditional corporate incentives programs, and enough bonding, laughter, and memories to last a lifetime.
Orchids in White
The popular White Party is reinvented to celebrate the best of the best of this corporate group. White orchids of abundant size, variety, and quantity cascade onto tables, are placed in ladies’ hair, worn on wrists, adorn tabletops and fill the space. Dramatic up-lighting transforms the setting into a world of cobalt and violet. Ukulele sensation Taimane Gardner plays table-side for guests as they warm up for the final dance party under the stars.
