Graduation party Hawaiian style with a luau at the Manor
Such a great graduation party idea — some recent guests held a true Hawaiian Luau here at Ashford Manor, with all the fixin’s from Hawaiian Style Grill, based in Augusta. We spoke with co-owner of the grill, Tammy, who said this is a family business — her husband’s mother has been presenting traditional Hawaiian dance at parties and events for 25 years. About a year ago, she joined forces with the Grill and together they create catered parties that bring the Luau to you.
It looked like the guests were having a great time — the Hawaiian style barbecue smelled delicious, and Tammy explained the menu included Teriyaki Chicken, Kalua Pork and macaraoni salad — typical back-yard barbecue food you’d find if you visited Hawaii. Stationed around the property were tables set with gorgeously decorated treats and adornments, as well as people dressed in traditional Hawaiian attire handing out leis for the guests. The evening also included spinning fire and traditional dance. This was a fantastic collaboration — a Luau in a Box, Dave called it. Fun to work with and see how they brought the party to life.
