This is what Elvira said about planning the party

– “This year I decided to pick one of my son’s current favorite TV shows for a theme for his 2nd birthday party. The theme I chose was ‘Jake & the Neverland Pirates’. I had one caveat with this theme, which was to pull off a creative Neverland Pirate’s party without using skulls. Personally I am not a fan of skulls, especially for kids, but if you know anything about pirate parties, skulls are everywhere! I definitely had a challenge on my hands, but I saw it as a creative opportunity to make a lot of DIY decor items for the party – fun, fun, fun!

First, I created a Jake & The Neverland Pirates invitation to mail out to close family and friends.

After the invitations were taken care of, I went to work brainstorming ideas for the decor design and details that would embody the theme. Soon after, I began shopping for items at my favorite stores: Dollar Tree & Michael’s! After a month or two of planning and making DIY projects, it all came together beautifully for my son’s 2nd birthday. A huge THANK YOU to Danny Mariscal from The F Stop Design & Photography for taking the awesome pictures that captured all of my hard work!

Boy did the birthday boy and his guests have a blast! The kids, and even some adults, got to enjoy inflatable slides and a foam shooting range for 1.5 hours, plus face-painting, caricature drawings, and pirate favors for all the kids. It brought joy to my heart to see all the smiles on our friends and family’s faces.

Some of the amazing DIY projects and details you will find in this party are: the burlap table runner, burlap bunting and ship sail cake toppers, treasure chest centerpieces with gold doubloons and gems, treasure chest and pirate booty favors, pirate flag and fishing net backdrop, birthday banner, treasure maps made from coloring pages, cake and cupcake stands, goblets, and descriptive tent cards. I am proud to say that every single detail of the party was designed, coordinated and/or created by me, except for the Jake & the Neverland Party stickers, Jake & The Neverland Party shirt, and the gorgeous cupcakes and cake pops that were made by Rebekah from Let Them Eat Cake! There was cutting, painting, burning, designing, tearing, purchasing, planning and many more activities involved in these DIY projects and did you notice that I was able to pull it off without including any skulls?! :)”
