We recently celebrated my daughter’s birthday with a Moana themed luau. Check out these fun Moana Birthday Party Ideas. This post contains affiliate links. 

Themed Food

Food is a crucial part of any party. We had Hei Hei (chicken tenders), Pua (Pulled Pork on Hawaiian Rolls), Driftwood (Pretzel Sticks), Fruit of Tefiti, Fish and Chips (Goldfish and Chips and Salsa), Tekah Lava Rocks (rock candy), Toatoma Treasure (Ring Pops and Chocolate Coins) and Ocean Water (Pineapple Juice, Sprite and Hawaiian Punch). Download the free printable for these food cards at the bottom of this post.

DIY Moana Letters

I made Moana themed letters to spell my daughter’s name. The paper mache letters were half off at Hobby Lobby. Most supplies I used came from my existing craft leftover stash. Each letter was inspired by a character from the movie. I also made a giant 2 out of leftover Hawaiian flowers. Overall both projects cost less than $20 to make and they were such a focal point of our food table.

Luau Fun

I purchased a lot of luau party supplies from the Dollar Tree including these Kakamora Coconut Cups, colorful leis, hair clip flowers, grass skirts and Moana themed tattoos for our Maui Tattoo station.

Decor on a Dime

These beautiful hibiscus flower centerpieces were from the Dollar Tree as well and the turquoise mason jars were reused from my sister’s wedding. We covered the tables in bright colored plastic tablecloths and used a wire and jute runner from the floral department at Hobby Lobby (one $5 roll covered 4 tables). I also used tiki torches all around the yard with citronella oil to help keep the bugs away. Guests could enjoy corn hole, swimming in the pool or playing in the sandbox while outside.

We hung paper lanterns and tissue pom poms from the tree outside. I mixed in ocean net and seashells all over to give it an easy and affordable Moana feel.

Photo Booth Fun

No party is complete without a Photo Booth. I found luau themed props at Hobby Lobby for fairly cheap and added leftover flowers to the frames for a fun twist. I also purchased this water backdrop at Hobby Lobby for only $7! Here’s a similar one on Amazon for only $10
