Unfortunately, due to having a baby, I didn't get the language in. But we watched videos and talked with a friend who is Samoan to get some ideas and learn more about their culture. So I ended throwing a Luau for Jessica for her sixth birthday. We found her little skirt for 50 cents at a thrift store. Rachel, Mom and I bought decorations and it didn't looks too tacky. We didn't have any Samoan music, so I got a video from the library on Samoa. I played it with the volume off during the whole party, so that people could get a feel for the culture (tattooing, dancing, foods, and so on). I think people enjoyed watching it in between conversations.
Too busy this time of year?
