This Moana themed birthday party looks like there’s no expense spared… but most of the items came from the dollar store. The main star of this paradise was the wonderful Hawaiian themed food – complete with Hei Hei (chicken tenders), Pua (Pulled Pork on Hawaiian Rolls), Driftwood (Pretzel Sticks), Fruit of Tefiti, and Tekah Lava Rocks (rock candy). Paper mache letters and numbers were adorned with tropical flowers purchased from the dollar store – as were the coconut cups, leis, grass skirts, and Moana tattoos.The gorgeous hibiscus flower centerpieces also came from the dollar store – proving that Moana’s paradise truly can be created on a dime! Now that’s magical.
