Celebrate the end of Lost with a luau party
May 28, 2010
The series finale of Lost has aired, and fans of the popular show are either savoring the final moments or tearing their hair out with the scores of still unanswered questions.
Either way, wouldn't it be fun to mark the end of the saga with a Lost luau party? The show has captivated audiences for six years, and after debating about the numbers, The Others and the smoke monster for eons, fans of the series are going to need an excuse to hang back, relax and blow off some steam.
If you decide to throw a Lost luau party, get ready to have an amazing time. Still, as with every shindig, some preparation is needed.
For starters, make sure you send out some luau invitations. Considering the series yielded so many memorable images and characters, designing these will be easy. Why not adorn the invites with images of losties like Kate, Sun, Hurly or Jack? Guests will love to get a glimpse of their favorite island dwellers in the mail.
If you really want to cause a stir before the bash, try using photographs of the famous love triangle - Jack, Kate and Sawyer. People have strong opinions about who should have ended up with whom, and it's bound to lead to some great conversation.
Next, make sure you purchase a bunch of luau decorations. These will really set the mood and let people feel as though they are stranded on the electromagnetic paradise themselves.
First, purchase a bunch of inflatable palm trees and place them around the room. The mysterious isle may have had its dark side, but the scenery was beautiful. Try to find banners and streamers that allow guests to feel as though they're living it up beachside.
Also, you may want to think of scenes that were special for the show. The Others lived in their own little community that was akin to a camping grounds. If you can hold the event outside, consider placing hammocks and badminton nets up for people to enjoy.
Finally, don't forget about luau party supplies. These are necessary as they will put the finishing touches on your event.
To begin, find a bunch of paper plates, cups and plastic utensils that are adorned with an important Lost image - the Dharma logo. The Dharma Initiative carried most of the season two plotline, and fans of the show are going to go crazy for this. If your venue includes more than one room, consider leaving one as the island area and turning one into the infamous hatch station.
Of course, you can't forget that the Lost was filmed in Hawaii, so make sure you stock up on a bunch of leis!
It's not often that a show comes along that captures the attention and interest of millions of viewers. A chance to celebrate an enigma such as this one may not come around for a long time, so take this chance while you've got it.
