Planning a Pirate Party

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

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.

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

Oh yeah, the Puma Pirate. Sheesh.

    • Hi Michelle. I think she found them online, either free or in the silhouette store. She is a master at Google. 😉
