My last substantive post on here was a sneak peek of Nate's first birthday party. I went with a pirate theme, mainly because, I thought it would be so cute! Little boy, pirate stuff...it just goes together! And, it was exactly as I had envisioned. Precious.
|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!|
|Outside table set up.|
|This Pirate blow up was awesome. It came from Oriental Trading.|
|Another view of the boat.|
As you can see, I used red, black and white as my color scheme, with a few teal touches thrown in. I decorated with a printable collection from Shindig Parties to Go, made a few tissue paper poms to hang around, and then accented with any and all pirate goods I could find. Most items were from Oriental Trading company, Target dollar spot, or Hob Lob.
