First off, let's just send a shout out to all things Pinterest!! Love that site!!! We planned a Pirate theme party for Brayden and we were able to pull it off all thanks to pinterest!! It was such a fun party and I really feel that the kids enjoyed it. It was also VERY inexpensive thanks to all the ideas we found from pinterest...ok, enough advertising ha Here are a few of the pics of what all we did and how we did it!
The cake was done by a wonderful lady near our home who is a genius when it comes to creating cakemasterpieces! Loved it!!
We also had a trays of just a few cupcakes in order to carry out our color theme-black, white, red. We just used an ordinary Dollar Tree vinyl tablecloth and then added other trays and foods. The trays were the silver chargers from Dollar Tree and the base on them was the glass tapered candlesticks from Dollar Tree. With a little spray paint they were black and red to match the theme!!
On one of our trays we had Fudge bars to be the "planks" and the other tray we just had cubed cheese for the "Gold Nuggets".
For the games, we began with 4 items the kids had to find in our yard using a pirate map we made. The 4 items were in 4 different spots in brown sacks labeled 1-3 (the swords we propped up against a tree instead of in bags with #4). After they found them all, they had to come back inside and open up the bags there-we told them that if they were going to be a pirate, they had to dress like a pirate!
Bag #2-Sword Hands
Bag #3-Pirate Hat
Everyone say AARRRGGGHHH!!
