A tiki hut is a familiar site in tropical locales and often serves as a favourite watering hole at resorts. If you are having a party with a tropical theme, you can make your own tabletop tiki hut bar with a few supplies. Get some inexpensive Hawaiian grass skirts at a party supply shop, then use them to create a tiki hut display on a tabletop in the dining room or on the patio.
