Make way, make way… for this colorful modern Moana party! Every little girl is in love with the latest Disney Princess—scratch that, Daughter of the Chief!—and I couldn’t resist creating our own celebration based on the popular movie. From balloon waves to Pineapple Beach Balls this Polynesian ocean party is poppin’ with Moana birthday party ideas!
With palm leaves, sunshine and ocean, our invitation sets the stage for a bright, tropical and playful event.
Our color scheme is straight out of the movie with ocean hues with bright pops of coral. Balloons played a huge part in our party decorations, they’re such a fun and inexpensive way to make a big impact and worked beautifully with our backdrop.
Pineapple Beach Balls and an ocean wave made of balloons add to the festivity!
Moana’s flower crown from the movie inspired the cake topper with sugar leaves and plumeria on our Fondant covered cake. I trimmed the bottom cake tier with two shades of blue-green fondant waves to represent the movie’s ocean character.
Heart of Te Fiti cookies were created with store-bought sugar cookies and an icing pouch for an easy DIY themed dessert.
Our printable coconut character faces and tropical fauna toppers on the chocolate cupcakes and coconut cups create “kinda cute” Kakamora.
The Oriental Trading coconut cups, bamboo straws and Plumeria clips add the perfect touch to our “Coconut Water” beverages. Additional drink options were bottles of Izze with our grass and leaf skirt bottle wraps, and pineapple infused water.
Our guest of honor got her own special seat marked by a jumbo balloon from One Stylish Party with balm leaf garland and “Daughter of the Chief” sign.
We embellished favor bags with our printable “You’re welcome” favor tags and fringed tissue paper to look like grass skirts. The bags were filled with volcano candy, pineapple lollis, flower leis, Moana tattoos and more!
After getting their fill or treats, the party guests were ready to grab a beach ball and hit the pool!
I think this adorable script balloon from Pretty Little Social pretty much sum up the party!
