Moana DIY Birthday: Maia’s 2nd Birthday

Moana Birthday

See the light where the sky meets the sea, it calls me. No ones knows how far it goes… Maia turned two, and we celebrated with one of her fave movies (and mom’s).

Decor:  Cake topper, cupcake toppers, Moana confetti, coconut cups, Moana doll,

Outfits: Maia’s floral headband (custom made), Mom’s dress, mom’s headband

Giftbag: Story book, coloring book, sticker book, Moana cup, Bubble fan (Walgreens), bag

Aue, aue, We set a course to find, A brand new island everywhere we roam! I can’t believe Maia is two years old. A few weeks back we celebrated her second birthday. So, I chose Moana because: (1) we love it, and (2) is one of Disney’s latest movies. There are little to none Moana birthday merchandise in stores, so I took the challenge to create Moana DIY birthday. Many of the things, of course, were a little pinspiration!

You know one thing? My mom did so great on those paper flowers. I only did a few. Not to mention, she also did the cake, and cookies. I wanted to create something simple, yet beautiful, and something memorable. We received our guests with fresh coconut water. The water is sweet inside! I guess that is one of the perks of living in the Caribbean, they were a total hit! 

We celebrated Maia’s first birthday too, and I have to say I was so happy because this time she really had fun. She got to play with friends, and cousins. We also gave goodies bags to the children who celebrated with Maia.  Finding Moana merchandise is so hard, but Amazon is the pot at the end of the rainbow. I had so much fun creating this Moana DIY birthday! I might be planning her 3rd birthday. 

Stay tuned because I will be sharing the Moana candy label this upcoming month!

The weekend is over, and I’m looking forward until the weekend again to be at home with my family. I know I’ve been lately into too much Disney but I can’t help it. Today I decided to share with you this Minnie mommy and me fashion. It really is fun looking to match with my girl. In some years this will be so cheesy to her.

Two items I got on my recent Disney trip were this Minnie Uniqlo top (is on sale right now!), and this sequined Mickey hat. I wanted this hat so bad! It was almost at every store, and every kiosk selling hats. I wanted it so bad but then I found it on a gift shop for less, and I was so excited. It is not common to see Authentic Disney Parks items for less. So, I got Mickey’s sequined hat quickly. 

I thing I enjoyed planning our Disney vacays were the outfits. I plan to continue creating more outfits, even though Disney is far ways from us. So, prepare to see more Disney around here.

Is there something you love from Disney? I would like to know! Every now and then I continue to share more Minnie mommy and me fashion.
