My baby sister turned 19 last week... what?! Since the boys and I just happen to be visiting this summer, my Mommy and I decided to go a little bit overboard when Katie mentioned she wanted a Moana themed birthday. What started as a small, family get-together with some pizzas and cake... turned into quite the celebration!
While we had plenty of fun decorations around the house, here are a few of my favorite additions:
The Heart of Te Fiti cookies turned out fun, and were super easy to make! Just plain, old sugar cookies, with some green royal icing in a double swirl. Done.
The boat cupcakes were another hit. My favorite chocolate cupcake recipe, blue buttercream, candy dipping sticks, sails cut out of cream-colored cardstock, and a swirly thing made with a red sharpie: easy-peasy.
Tiki-head fruit kabobs! I printed the heads on brown cardstock, glued two to the top of each skewer, and added some nice, fresh fruit.
The biggest hit, however, was the photo-booth! What's a party without a photo-booth these days? Boring, that's what. A giant backdrop and some fun props from Amazon cost about $20, and was worth every penny.
I think we all had a little too much fun!
