Make Way, Make Way, for an amazing Moana Party!

Moana Birthday Party Ideas - Project Nursery

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!

Moana Birthday Party Printable Invitation

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.

I mixed in faux monstera and palm leafs into the gorgeous balloon garland from One Stylish Party and created our own ocean balloon wave with twist and bubble balloons and our favorite glue dots.

Our table was dressed with a coral table runner rented fromParty Crush Studio and a simple kraft Tassel Garland  for that grass skirt vibe.

Pineapple Beach Balls and an ocean wave made of balloons add to the festivity!

Moana Birthday Party Ideas Cake - Project Nursery

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.
