This weekend was party time and it was pirates to the max!
For the past couple of weeks I’ve been trying to gather my thoughts and ideas about this party. The boys had a blast!
Of course, we started the Pirate party off in pirate dress…what could be more appropriate!?!
After Daddy scared a few children with his pirate costume, the costumes came off (pirate mate hats and eye patches for the kids) and the kids were ready to dive in to their very own treasure hunt. We had some that would make great pirates digging at all costs with sand flying everywhere! , They all had fun finding their little treasures (from the Dollar Store) and putting them in their very own treasure chest.
All the party items came from Hobby Lobby, Target, and TJMAXX. That adorable pirate ship cupcake stand and the mini red and white striped cupcake holders? TJMAXX! I love that place!
After some treasure hunting, gift opening (and playing), everyone was ready to dive into some cupcakes. He had them blown out before the last note of the Happy Birthday Song! The cupcakes were super melt in your mouth yummy…they were Paula Deen’s Simply Delicious Strawberry Cake, requested by the birthday boy himself. Yum Yum!!!
Pirate party was a hit! We are well stocked with all things pirate now; and the boys are having a blast imagining pirate adventures of their own!
