A Pirate's Birthday Bash

Holly  D By Holly D  in Birthday


Party Recap

Every pirate needs a ship & the birthday boys Dad built one special for the party! Dressed in pirate garb once they arrived the boys had a ball & the ship was a hit!As the kids arrived, we gave them their "swag bags" (gift bags) first. These contained eye patches, earring, red handkerchiefs, and pirate hats & everyone put their things on so they were in the part!


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting

  • Activities / Games

    We decorated pirate chests for their treasure & then went on a treasure hunt! I made up clues that took them all over & at the end, they found the treasure chest

  • Best Moment

    When the boys started chasing the birthday boys Dad & he was into it as well. Totally unexpected fun!

    Just got an email with your comment asking if we rented a pirate ship. No, my ex husband actually made it from refrigerator boxes. I found the idea on a blog somewhere & have a neighbor that was able to get me boxes. So, I presented him with everything he would need & lucked out that he didn't balk too much and did it!
