The end of a summer is a bummer in my house. Our family does a lot together over the weeks of summer. Since I am a teacher, I have been lucky enough to be off when the kids are off and we spend our time taking road trips, hitting the nearby pool, and just enjoying each other’s company. Needless to say, when the days of August begin to come to an end, we will not be rejoicing the end of all of this free time.
Over the years, however, we have learned to cope in our own way. Instead of mourning the end of summer, we celebrate it with a huge sendoff that has become a favorite among our family and friends. It’s our end of summer luau party and it has become as much a part of summer as anything else that we do. It’s our personal way to put a positive spin on the end of our favorite season and mentally make that jump to another school year.
Of course, as with anything else of this nature, it has grown year by year and our end of summer luau party is now very well attended by family, friends, friends of friends, and pretty much all of our neighborhood. You can believe that this kind of gathering can become expensive but in terms of luau party supplies we’ve been able to keep the lid on the costs by shopping for party supplies online.
The party supply website where I find all of my luau party supplies online specializes in bulk and discount party supplies – meaning that I can get the number of items to accommodate my steadily growing party and the prices that will allow me to continue it year after year. Nothing puts a damper on summer like the coming of fall; and nothing puts a damper on a party like unaffordable party supplies. Luckily I’ve found a way to conquer both!
