At the end of July we catered a fabulous Hawaiian themed cocktail party for a client’s birthday. We had so much fun creating the menu. Many people think that the best way to ‘theme’ a party is to throw a few theme appropriate decorations around and maybe some music. Not us, we go all out.
Hawaii is a favourite place for all of us here at Devour – it is one of the few places that all the full-time staff have been to.
The Hawaiian themed celebration was a cocktail dinner party for forty guests at the client’s home. This format of cocktail party is one of our favourites. We served a dinner portion of food in a cocktail party format so guests could mingle with each other while hula dancing and sing along to Elvis’ Blue Hawaii.
Devour caters unforgettable theme parties that go all out.

Theme Parties Are The Best!
Can’t you hear the ukulele strumming and the waves crashing in the background as you picture yourself surrounded by glowing tiki torches? It was a fabulous summer evening and fun was had by all. If you have a theme in mind give us a call and we can get our creative juices flowing and create a menu for you.
If you don’t have a theme in mind but you want one – we can help with that too! As Jasmin Ohlhoff, Devour’s fabulous event coordinator says – ‘I live for theme parties!’. Aloha…
