How to Throw a Tropical Staycation Party Over the Long Weekend
Spring is just around the corner and we are more than ready for a vacation! Long weekends are the perfect time to take a flight to the land of relaxation. Escape to a tropical island without packing a bag by turning your home into a staycation resort complete with fruity drinks, vibrant colors, and beach-themed games.
No-Bake Mango Cheesecake
Have you ever made a cheesecake? It’s not too hard once you get the hang of it. The secret is to resist the urge to overmix! Mixing the filling for longer than the recipe requires will leave you with a softer-than-ever dessert the next day. Decorate this sweet treat with diced mango and pineapple for an extra bit of tropical pizazz.
Spicy Jalapeño Pineapple Salsa
This sweet heat pico de gallo-style salsa can be used as a topping or spooned onto a chip! Serve with baked tortilla chips for a healthier, lower-calorie version of your favorite dip vehicle (because let’s face it, we’re definitely eating the entire bowl!).
Floral Pineapple Centerpiece
When cutting a pineapple for the salsa, trim off the top of the pineapple, run the knife all the way around, and save the hollowed-out fruit for decor. We love the unique shapes of these colorful flowers and how they draw attention to the center of the table.
Tropical Forest Backdrop
A statement wall for a party is perfect for a makeshift photo booth. Add some tropical flowers to really pop against the deep forest green leaves. We love the bright orange hibiscus blooms this designer used for her tropical photo op!
Tropical Photobooth Props
When the cameras come out so do the watermelon smiles and palm leaf sunglasses! Print out small pictures of lush foliage and hot-weather accessories for customizable photo fun.
Flamingo Ring Toss
The mini flamingos are so cute tucked into planters. Use some leftover flower pots from last summer’s garden and fill with sand so the flamingos stand upright. Want to go super size? Get lawn-sized flamingo yard ornaments and colorful hula hoops for a jumbo yard toss game!
DIY Pineapple Puff
All you need is tissue paper, construction paper, and glue for this inexpensive party decoration. These pineapple poufs are great centerpieces, or even hung by a string from the ceiling. The pop of color will make your staycation feel like summer in tropics.
