|Entry way parrot!|
|Just inside the door, the treasure maps to lead the guests to their loot!|
|Close up of the maps. |
I created the maps using Powerpoint, printed them off, and then made them look the authentic by tearing the edges and tea staining them. Once they dried, I rolled them up and tied them with some twine.
We had various red, black and gold candies for the party guests to help themselves too, and a few cracker items too. This table also held the cake pops and Nate's smash cake.
|I made this pirate ship out of Styrofoam, poster board, fabric and wooden dowels to hold the cake pops.|
|Another buffet table pic, in progress.|
|With the food!|
|Drink station with Pirate Grog and Adult Pirate Grog. |
I found the Ahoy cups at the Target Dollar Spot. Couldn't be more perfect!
|Love these blocks! The "one" is from Hob Lob. I painted it red and added a ribbon to theme it out!|
|Monthly Pics from Nate's first year.|
I mounted each pic onto scrapbook paper, affixed it to a dowel and pushed it into each bucket (from Oriental Trading), which had a small styrofoam ball in the bottom and was covered with black mesh fabric. I added a few pirate coins to complete the look.
|Outside table set up.|
|This Pirate blow up was awesome. It came from Oriental Trading.|
|Another view of the boat.|
