Every kid needs a pirate party, right? Josiah turned 5 this last week and so we re-used our pirate get-up from halloween and had ourselves a pirate party! I found these great free pirate printables from the lovely cottage industrialist blog and used them for the party.
She had these adorable cupcake wrappers and decorations...
Pirate hats and eye patches for the kids to cut out and put together...this one was a bit big :)
And a darling pirate bunting for the wall.
No pirate party would be complete without a treasure hunt! I wrote out clues on a scroll image I found on the web and hid them in various places around the house. The last clue led them to...
Party favor bags!
Most of the loot for the party bags I found at the local dollar store, some of it discounted because it was left over from halloween (who knew the dollar store had sales?)
I made some little maps for the party favor bags out of vellum I had left over from my days of attempting to scrapbook...
And filled in the decorating with some shells (from the dollar store), gold chocolate coins and some pineapple "boats"
He's still talking about it...Happy 5th Birthday Josiah!
