“Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say, on a bright, Hawaiian Christmas Day. That’s the island greeting that we send to you from the land where palm trees sway. Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright. The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night. Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way, to say Merry Christmas to you!” OK, admit it. You’re all singing the song in your head! Don’t you wish we could all be in Hawaii this week?! I lived in Hawaii around 7 years ago…and oh how I miss it!
Some other treats offered were pineapple cakes topped with fondant gingerbread men and women, decked out in their bathing suits and laying out and catching some rays on their fondant towels. We also had rice marshmallow treats serving as a stage for the hula dancing penguins, along with fondant surfboards and flowers!
As favors, we gave away Egg Nog in a Bag from Cost Plus World Market that, as the bag reads, you can simply “shake, freeze and squeeze”! Also from the Target dollar bins were some liqueur-infused chocolate boxes.
I had so much fun with this theme that was so fitting for both my husband and the holidays! We, of course, listened to Bing Crosby’s classic “Mele Kalikimaka” song since it’s Hawaii’s way to say Merry Christmas to you!”
