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.

Drinks

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!
