Modern Moana 5th birthday party
Morning, mamas! Got any little Moana fans out there? Birthday girl Emmie is a huge fan, so Karina at Perfectly Petite Parties gave this pool party a modern Moana twist with tropical details and vibrant colors. Even better, it’s full of simple DIY elements and lots of local mom vendors contributed to the festivities. Thanks to Five Whimsy Lane for the photos!
Super adorable, tropical cake from Paper Street Cakes. They also had macarons from Honey & Butter, Pacific Organic Pops, and the catering by Francesca Manfredi featured a little something for everyone, whether vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, gluten-free, etc.
They built the backdrops for the drinks & desserts tables and the kids table. Impressive!
And all the floral arrangements for the tables and backdrops were DIY by Perfectly Petite Parties!
Pro tip for all you party planning mamas: Create a Pinterest board with ideas, starting with a focal point to build off of for style: For this party, I chose Emmie’s bathing suit as that focal point. I used the colors of her bathing suit and patterns to use throughout the party. I sprayed painted the palms for the backdrops in the colors of the bathing suit. The cake flowers, felt floral crowns, and the balloon garlands were all the same color family as the bathing suit as well.
Such fun signage from Midnight Confetti.
Happy birthday, E.
