50 Recipes for a Hawaiian Tropical Party. All the food & drink ideas you need from burgers, salads, and pork dishes, to desserts and drinks, there is a Hawaiian Tropical recipe for all!

This year is a big milestone birthday for me – I turn 40 in September! I do not know where all the years of my life have gone, but they seem to have gone by even more quickly over the past 5 years! For my birthday, we are headed to my favourite part of the world  – Florida – to celebrate, but it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t throw a birthday party! So I decided that I would host a party a month before, and call it the last month of my 30s party!

In my mind, all good parties have a theme, and one theme that I have always wanted to do for myself, but never quite gotten around to doing it is Hawaiian Tropical! I did get close with a party I threw for my sister, but it was a fairly small gathering, and I didn’t go to town as much as I plan to with my 40th!

I shared my 40th birthday party invitations recently, and for the next stage of planning, it’s the food and drink. I’ve rounded up 50 recipes that could be used for a Hawaiian Tropical Party from some great bloggers out there, and a few of my own recipes.
