Hawaiian-Asian Fusion Birthday Party

In late summer, we were commissioned to cater a birthday party for a friend and client celebrating her 40th birthday. The theme of the party was to be a Hawaiian-Asian Fusion Luau. We were excited about this challenge, as the season was perfect for fresh tropical fruits. As such, a multi-tiered tropical fruit display became the centerpiece and focal point of the buffet.

Fresh Hawaiian pineapple, baby "apple bananas," fresh lychee and rambutan, mangos, papayas, watermelon, grapes, berries, melons, passion fruit, and fresh coconuts combined to create a beautiful and delicious display. Served with a thick and creamy vanilla and wildflower honey yogurt dip, the fruit display was a favorite with guests!

Fresh orchids and tropical flowers, and carved fruits completed the display, making it as beautiful as it was delicious!

Tomorrow, we will focus on the savory foods on the buffet. Mahalo, and be sure to check back!
