Sarongs make for colourful tablecloths and are super affordable. To kick up the fun factor, throw in grass skirting around the table edge. For this rehearsal dinner, our florist make the skirting out of palm fronds but you can purchase grass table skirting from Oriental Trading for $9.99 each. Bamboo folding chairs complete the look while bright napkins add extra zip.

To give a visual punch of colour and texture, we hollowed out fruits (pineapples, papayas, watermelon) then filled with lush dendrobium orchids and placed starfruits, mangos, oranges and limes alongside. Rehearsal dinner - Sharma 2
Finishing off the casual look, we had naked bulbs strung overhead and a few lights to uplight the cacti and trees along the property’s perimeters. As this was in a very windy area, we didn’t include any candles but adding in candles in hollowed out coconuts would be the icing on the cake for this look. 

Please pass the poi – and get me a Mai Tai!
