Ahoy there! Looking for Pirate Party ideas for your little one? Filled with cute DIY ideas and easy sweet treats, this week’s party has plenty to get you inspirrrred!
Mandy and Derren put together an arrrmazing Pirate Party for their son, Archie’s first birthday. Yes it did require a bit of heave-ho, but it was well worth the effort!
The guests and fellow shipmates were guided to the pirate party with a big ‘X’ marks the spot on the letterbox and gold jewels hanging from the trees. On arrival, Mandy gave the little pirates a handmade calico drawstring bounty bag labelled with a red felt ‘x’. Inside was a telescope, eye patch, jewel necklace, pirate stamps and a treasure map – shiver me timbers! (You can print your own treasure maps here!)
The kids were told to hold on to their bounty bag for the games ahead, which included a treasure chest piñata and an almighty treasure hunt. By the end of the day the treasure bags were overflowing with goodies!
Mandy called in help from mum and best friend Linda to create the pirate party feast. They filled the party table with delicious treats and a sea of gold coins while the homemade birthday cake took pride of place in the centre. Cupcakes were baked in striped baking cases to tie in with the pirate theme – super easy and super cute! The real favourites of the day were the Pirate Mallow-men – So easy to make and so yummy!
Dad, Derren, came up with the idea of creating a photo booth for the party. What a gem! The little pirates loved posing with props in front of a red and white stripe backdrop and shouting “Ahoy there!” at the camera! Download your own photobooth props here!
The backyard was decorated with gold jewel beads, netting and homemade gold coin garlands to make it simmer in the sunlight. The kids had plenty of pirate props to keep them entertained like hats, bandannas, swords and tattoos. A huge white sail towered over the lolly buffet decorated with personalised birthday bunting from Love JK.
