Oceanic Arts

Best Party Supplies, October 2009
 
Tiki. The god of art, yes, but also a fabulous party theme. Robert Van Oosting and LeRoy Schmaltz are the undisputed masters of Polynesian pop, having supplied the decor for Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room and the huts of Gilligan’s Island. Their shop, Oceanic Arts, has been exporting tiki statues, thatch, puffer fish, and luau party props worldwide since 1956. You can create your own full-fledged Trader Vic’s (a longtime customer) in your rec room or just pick up some torches and mugs to fuel your way to exotica.
