Tiki Mocktail Bar Party Ideas:
This theme would be great as a graduation party for teens or a simple summer party theme for older kids. This is a fun theme you could easily setup in your own backyard with some supplies from your local party store or dollar store.
You could set up a mocktail self-serve bar with a non-alcoholic drink menu and all the ingredients to make a variety of drinks. Don’t forget some candies for garnishing drinks like candy lemon slices, blue whale or gummy sharks, plus fresh fruit like cherries or sliced pineapples. Here are a few mocktail drink ideas to help you get started:
- 12 Delicious Mocktails – like a Sparkling Sangria
- 20 Simple Mocktails – like Raspberry Lemonade
- 10 Mocktail Recipes – like Mango Mock-o-lada
Simple appetizers and bite-sized desserts are perfect for this party theme. For the tiki & surfboard cupcake picks, I used printable files from the MyPrintableMiracles shop on Etsy.
Coconut bowls (found at your local party store or dollar store) would be a fun way to serve candy or ice cream sundaes. For Hawaiian-themed desserts, a Pineapple Upside Down Cake would be an excellent choice but you also can’t go wrong with an ice cream sundae buffet at a party!
