Pirate Party Details:
This is what Holly said about planning the party-
Theme: Shiver me timbers. Planning this Pirate party was a swashbuckling good time. Whats more fun than searching for pirates gold and walking the plank? Perhaps having a stink eye contest and watching pirate clothed little buccaneers sword fight for the title of Captain. We broke out the pirate gear, for Mason’s fourth birthday. Hope you enjoy:)
The best part about decorating this party, was all the fabric ripping. I wanted the table to have a haphazard, asymmetrical feel, because pirates are not tidy…They dont measure, they dont match. I loved mixing the pirate patterns and being able to mix up the textures. We included plenty of wood and burlap and even some sand (brown sugar) and water (blue ruffled fabric). My favorite piece of the decor was the pirate ship we built from cardboard and covered with the wood grain patterned paper. I used a wooden ship steering wheel and anchor as well.
Food: The little pirates feasted on cannon ball cake pops, pirate cake pops, red velvet cupcakes with cute pirate fondant toppers, chocolate cake, gang planks (blueberry yogurt, graham crackers), pirate sugar cookies, gold doubloon sugar cookies, crunchy bones (white frosted pretzels), lollipops and black spot whoopie pies.
Drinks: To drink, our little pirates had Pirates (root) Beer, Pirates (ginger) Ale, and Bilge Water. I used old wine and liquor bottles to serve the root beer and ginger ale to give it that authentic feel.
Activities: The kids enjoyed climbing on a giant playset with rope ladders and ship steering wheels. They had sword fighting contests, and a cannon ball water balloon battle. When it was time to cool off, they enjoyed using their pirate activity pages.”
