    Thumbs up Enchanted Tiki Room Advice

    Morning all! My husband and I were at Michael's Crafts last night when he came up with the idea to decorate our living room like the Enchanted Tiki Room!!! We plan on getting lots of greenery (fake, we have cats) but what other suggestions can you give me? Also, if anyone has any pictures of the in and out of the tiki room, can you send them to me at mikeandsulley@yahoo.com or post them here? Thanks, and Happy Leap Year!!!!

    Jennifer,

    I love it!!! I think that's a great idea!! Granted, some people may thing you're a little nutty, but coming from someone that has a complete monorail set in his house, I'm with you on this one!

    I'll try and get you some photos of the Tiki Room, as well as a video if you like. I'll either email you the pictures and/or post them in the galleries.

    You can probbaly get some Tiki God type stuff as well as birds, greenery stuff, etc. from the Oriental Trading catalog. Order it for free at www.oriental.com

    Good luck, and please post your room (how about the work in progress so we can see the before and after pix?!) on the galleries!

    Do a site search for "Tiki room"

    I found 16 exterior pix.

    Good Luck!

    I saw an episode of Monster House a few weeks back where they turned the house into a tropical paradise. The living room had a tiki god fireplace that spit firballs!! Check out the website for some inspiration

    We bought some trees and some pictures, but nothing is up yet!
    We go to Disney in 16 days, so I hopefully will come back with more inspiration.
    Don't worry, I will post when it's done!

    thanks for checking in!

    Yes, I have been inspired again!! My job situation will be changing soon, so I should be able to find more time to decorate. We haven't done anything since the last picture I bought and haven't hung up yet! I just haven't had the time!

    Don't worry, I will let you all see the room when it's complete.

    thanks for checking, and Lou, don't be jealous! You'll be going back soon enough!

    Take it easy, and talk to every one soon!

    Jennifer

    Ahhh...the Tiki Room...the on going project.

    I've been looking at some decorating ideas. We want it to be inspired by the tiki room, but not all crazy-like. Know what I mean? As I look at what I think is Tiki stuff, at the same time, i like all things tropical, safari/african, and tiki, so the room might end up a mish mosh of styles!

    I don't have a job right now, so I can't really buy anything. I do have a picture of a palm tree though, and I plan on blowing up some of my Animal Kingdom pictures for that jungle look.

    Thanks for checking in...sorry it's taking me so long to get it done...turned out to be more of a project than I thought!
