Detailed Description
The word luau means party in Hawaiian.  Our luau menu consisted of Kalua pork, chicken long rice, steamed rice, lomi salmon, pineapple, haupia cake, chocolate macadamia cake.  We played music from famous musical artists in Hawaii and decorated the area with lanterns and flowers.  Crafts were also set up for everyone to participate in.  On one table we had lei making and the other table was for weaving a fish out of a frond (we had to use paper instead of the frond, which is a type of leaf).
If your budget allows, you can also look up hula lessons/dance in the yellow pages.  You could pay for a live performance of a group to dance the hula at your luau.

Creative or special ways to promote event:
The week before, we drove around an Ice Cream Cart (the property golf cart) and passed out ice cream to residents. At this time, we promoted the Luau. Two days before the event we delivered fliers to all units. We also posted signs at the gate.
