So my little one said she didn’t want a birthday party this year, we went on a exhausting vacation to DW instead… LOL Then 4 days prior to her big “6” she asked to PLEEEAASSE give her a party… just a “LITTLE” party. She asked. Of course she is way too powerful not to give in. So I did. To top off the last minute situation, she wanted it to be a Moana Party………………………… I KNOW!
I couldn't order anything online because shipping was going to eat my entire budget. I went to my local party suppliers and I found somethings. But was left to create a lot to make it look like I've had more than just 4 days to plan it. LOL

I made a lot of items (which I put pics below) but didn’t take step by steps on most of them since my time was sooo limited.

I also made cute hair clips because I didn't find party hats - check out my profile icon

Here are one of the items I was able to share. Hope you guys like it.
I got a poster board ....
rolled it up and tape it.
I couldn’t find a brown poster board so I got craft paper and wrapped the pink poster board.
I took a hole puncher and punched holes on the roll - 4 holes
I twirled some pipe cleaners together
I tied them to the holes I made
I took the table cloth and folded it in a few times. The rectangle was about 24inx18in
I folded that rectangle in half one last time and started to cut a leaf shape
I tucked the table cloth in the rolled up poster board
Then I opened the table cloth and laid them on the pipe cleaners.
I also made the Name, the base for the cake is a box with fringe from a costume, the flowers are from tissue paper , the leafs from construction paper, and the skirt of the table from crepe paper rolls. close up's below.
