Moana Party

March means party time once again. My oldest had her birthday and requested a Moana Party. We did a Luau Party last summer for my youngest's birthday,  so I was more than happy to throw a Moana party because I knew I could easily reuse the majority of those decorations and save some money. - I am all about saving money.

We won a giveaway contest and chose THIS Moana dress. Which I love. My daughter kept asking for a Moana dress and while I love Moana I did not love that her dress was strapless and I did not want to have to worry about my daughter accidentally flashing everyone all the time. I love that the dress we won has straps that can hold the dress up. I honestly felt like it was way softer than the ones I found at the stores we were looking at. Plus you cannot beat the price when you won the dress πŸ˜‚.

I used to decorate a lot more but I have found that I can easily get away with decorating our one wall in our dining room and everyone is still happy haha. I am also less stressed when I am not worried about decorating the entire house.

I had my husband make a lemonade stand for our youngest daughters second birthday a little over a year ago and I love any excuse to use it in my decorations. I felt like it fit in with our theme perfectly.

All of the rest of the decorations came from the dollar tree last year.

I also had a bunch of grass skirts left over from the Luau party last year that I used as party favors and the kids enjoyed dancing around to Hawaiian music.

We decorated cookies for an activity and I used the same recipe I used from our unicorn party a month ago HERE. I don't use the almond extract (we have friends with nut allergies ) or the lemon zest from the original recipe. I honestly like the way it tastes better without those two ingredients anyways. 

We did cupcakes instead of cake and to be honest I had planned on a completely different look but as I was trying to swirl I noticed it kinda looked like the heart of Tafiti and I decided I liked that idea better πŸ˜‚ I love when that happens.

My daughter had a blast and loved her special day.
