I know, I’m ridiculously behind in posting my daughter’s 6th Moana birthday party. I blame moving, back-to-school and general malaise trying to get back into the swing of working from home without two kids underfoot. And as always, while my work continues to pile up, I’m procrastinating by reflecting on yet another Disney party (sorry, not sorry) – because I truly think I missed my calling to be a budget party planner.
Don’t tell anyone, but I think this Moana party is shaping up to be my all time favorite. You guys have had an amazing response to my Tefiti Tissue Paper Number DIY for under $5, my DIY Kakamora Pinata for under $5 and this DIY Moana headband that cost me $0. $10 so far for a party? Sign me up!

One of my favorite features of the Disney Moana film was her boat. It was a great reflection of Polynesian culture, and I absolutely adored the unique design of the sail. So of course, my daughter’s 6th birthday would not be complete with a reproduction of Moana’s boat.
