Walking the plank has never been so fun. The Princess Cupcake and I were part of the motley crew of landlubbers who commandeered the local aquatic center for Captain Drew’s 4th birthday.
When you get an invitation like this:
With scorched edges. In a bottle.
With pirate rings.
And pirate tattoos (both girl and boy skeletons).
And skeleton candy.
It would be sheer tyranny not to report for duty.
Pirate Momma Sabrina and her trusty crew set this mutany into motion in nearly 15 minutes. Because when you have a destination party, sometimes that’s all the time they give you. But you’d never have known…
Beside the chlorine seas, the ship’s decor was complete with pirate balloons
while the flags flew high
above the pirate ship
and the table set for a feast with pirate plates
waiting to be filled with the grub — which of course was displayed in treasure chests and pirate buckets
filled with pirate’s booty and pirate cake pops.
Wash it down with some Seadog Grog
and then grab a handful of cannon balls and peppermint planks.
The fruit set sail in a watermelon ship next to chocolate covered marshmallows
while the cupcakes kept guard over it all.
Matching lollipops, paper straws and utensils,
to duel the skull sandwiches,
candy cannon balls, and matching cake.
Oh, the cake!
Everyone left with sword cookie bounty in chevron bags
But wait, there’s more treasure… maps and real compasses!
Don’t leave yet. Get dried off for a bit more fun… there’s a photo booth – complete with costumes for pirate princesses
and fake moustaches for the preschool pirates
Hey, who’s that old guy?!
Oh yeah, the Puma Pirate. Sheesh.
