Aidan's Tick Tock Croc 4th Birthday

Southern Lady Gifts By Southern Lady Gifts  in Birthday


Party Recap

We held my sons 4th Birthday at our favorite state park this year. Buccaneer State Park in Waveland, MS was the perfect setting for our pirate themed party. Aidan wanted to be the "Tick Tock Crocodile" for Halloween this year so we ran with the theme. We focused on pirates and crocodiles for the decor. He had a crocodile cake and we used the Island shaped number 4 cookies as inspiration for a custom designed and handpainted backdrop. And hints of Captain Hook were included of course! The weather was a little chilly and windy, but the day turned out perfect!

    Hi Amanda! The crocodiles I purchased off eBay. If you search there are a ton. And the pirate hats came from Target. I don’t know how many you need, but I have a bunch leftover if you’d like to purchase? They are new and unused. I also have a lot of brand new leftovers from the party I’ll be listing in my shop soon. Just message me in my Etsy shop if you are interested. Hope that helps! Happy Planning! Alicia
