Set out a bowl of banana chips for your guests to munch on or combine them with more dried fruits and nuts for a tropical trail mix.
For a sweet, festive snack, serve these pineapple gummy bears, which are guaranteed to be the best gummy bears you'll ever eat. They taste just like fresh pinapple.

What's a tropical party without pina coladas? Serve the drinks in plastic coconut-shaped cups or hollowed out pineapples.
Keep the party sea turtle friendly with paper straws and don't forget the drink umbrellas!

Treat your guests to festive pastries or refreshing sorbet served in tropical fruit shells.
For the table, think monsterra leaves, flamingos, and pineapples.

A MinniDip designer inflatable pool can be a place for guests to dip their feet or it can also make a perfect cooler when filled with ice and bottled and canned drinks (and you can save it for when the baby is older!).

Guess the Baby Food
Give guests (unlabeled) tropical baby food in flavors like Mango, Hawaiian Delight, etc. to try and have them guess the flavors.
Fill a pineapple ice cube tray with water and plastic babies. The first guest whose baby is "born" (melted) in their drink wins.
The Prizes & Favors

Alcohol has never been cuter. These tiny Ocean Vodka bottles are filled with organic sugar cane-based vodka and at about $5 a pop, make for an inexpensive favor that will definitely be appreciated.
Who could say no to a gorgeous plant with an enticing scent? Plumeria flowers from Hawaii can be grown from cuttings of the tree, which can be found at your local nurseries and online.
