Ahoy there! Let’s have a pirates party!
There are so many creative and fun decorations and activities to make for a pirates themed party. All coordinating balloons, plates, napkins, cups and utensils can be found at www.birthdayexpress.com
To get the pirate theme started, find some great clipart graphics to make your own invitations to send to your child’s special guests.
Treasure Maps & Treasure Chest Favors
Instead of using favor bags for the kids, use treasure chest filled with candy, gold coins and even add an eye patch. But the best part is to create treasure maps for the kids (and adults) to find the treats! You can create your own map on construction paper. Draw the layout of the party with markers and make a few different “X” marks the spot areas so everyone can find their own treasure chest. Give each party guest a map and let them find the treats! I’ve done this so many times for friends and family to find their birthday presents.
In the photo collage above, a great party food are the “eye ball” deviled eggs! Prepare your deviled eggs as usual. The trick to make these look like eye balls is adding a sliced olive to make the eye and also roasted red pepper to make the eye look bloodshot. Display on a platter on top of some black beans!
