We're Having a Luau Tonight!!!

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday - it's the big 40! So, tonight we are having a luau with a bunch of friends. I have kalua pig cooking in my roaster pan and since I don't have any banana leaves, I am taking the suggestion in the recipe and putting whole bananas on top of the meat to get the banana leaf flavor. Hopefully, this is a good compromise. I also made coconut pudding (haupia) and guava cake. I cheated and bought King's Hawaiian bread from our local grocery store. I will be making non-alcoholic tropical smoothies for our fun drink decorated with a tropical straw and umbrella.
The friends that are coming to our luau are each bringing a Hawaiian side dish. I left it open to their imagination. I'm excited to see their creativity since most of them have never been to Hawaii. It could be interesting. Everyone was told to dress in Hawaiian shirts and the tackier the better. I will try and post pictures here later. Now, if only my house was clean!

Get The Look

Last week, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, my hubby, our precious little bundle of joy and I dined at Indochine, one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. This restaurant was established in 1984 and since then has been a favorite among the famous and world socialites. The food, a fusion of French and Vietnamese cuisine, is exquisite-I personally recommend their Vietnamese Bouillabaisse - And the drinks are one only-enough reason to visit it. But, every time I step into this place I get mesmerized by its decor. This is what I would call a perfect Tropical Luxury style. With its famous banana leaf wallpaper, black and white checkered floors, green leather banquettes and those perfect toned lighting sconces, set the mood to transport you to the one time French colonized, Indochine.

After you enter through a very Indochine looking door with its neon lighting sign you find this gorgeous space in front of the bar. Where all of the very good looking staff await for you.

Here, you can see the banquettes with mirror above, with sconces in between. I thought it would be fun to imagine decorating a home with an Indochine influence.

Two versions of the banana leaf wallpaper. Sold here.

A really cool sconce that would give that smooth tone to any room, Red Padoga chandelier, and painted bench.

Bamboo club chairs and Caribbean casual dining table.

Sheraton arm chair and Annie Selke green leather chair.

Above, the movie Indochine (1992) with Catherine Deneuve, one great source to get inspired by Indochine Decor.

I love these Note Cards by Janet Jill Studio at Etsy. Isn't it a great idea of Janet to make these cards with room decor images?
