It is always difficult to know each culture’s way especially when it comes to ceremonial occasions. You’re not supposed to show up with an empty hand for someone’s birthday party even if you were told not to bring any gifts, you’re expected to wear your boldest aloha clothes for someone’s locally-themed funeral, or many Chinese people wear red and black for a funeral unlike black only, which is Japanese common understanding; the list goes on.

Most important thing is to consider about the host’s delight as the top priority for each occasion. You will then naturally become a part of the Hawaii community.
