Moana Party Food

Ok…let’s look first at some of the options for a party that are not sweets.  Desserts are definitely always the easiest options, but it’s important that we are giving out guests food that is not just dessert.  Here are some adorable, easy and still totally on theme salty, healthy non-desserts for a Moana party:

Moana Lunches from A Crafted Lifestyle

These little packeted lunches are so perfect.  They have some themed items included (like the little cookies, but also a meal that each guest can eat.  Pre-packaging meals this way helps with mess and also ensures that each guest gets a serving of food.

Another idea is to have different foods that either coordinate with a character’s name, or personality trait or are Hawaiian and fit the environment of the movie.

Here is a list of non-dessert items you can serve at a Moana birthday:

  • Hei Hei Chicken Tenders
  • Pua Sandwiches (Pulled Pork on Hawaiian Rolls)
  • Driftwood (Pretzel Sticks)
  • Hearts of Te Fiti (Key Lime Salt Water Taffy)
  • Maui’s Fish and Chips
  • Moana’s Mango Slices
  • Wayfinder Wedges (wedges of fruit)
  • Pua’s Pigs in a Blanket
  • Hei Hei Hotdogs
  • Te Fiti Tortilla Roll-ups
  • Kakamora Meatballs (You can add little faces on card stock topped toothpicks)
  • Te Fiti Rolls (Cresent Rolls made in a circle so they have the swirl pattern)
  • Tamatoa’s Trinkets (mixture of goodies like trail mix, or Chex mix)
  • Coconut anything!
  • Coconut Water
  • Motunui Mac and Cheese

Once your guests have had an opportunity to treat themselves to all the non-dessert treats, they will definitely be ready for a delicious slice of cake.
