For those of you who have been reading this blog you know I try to share simple tips for everything related to entertaining. I haven’t posted much about kids yet so I will start today! For most you, birthday parties will be the reason to get creative and plan something fun for your kids and their friends. I personally don’t think you need a reason to have a party but if you do, a birthday is a pretty good one!
So, for all you moms, aunts, friends, cousins etc. who may be in charge of planning a child’s party, how about a pirate theme??
I am loving this theme right now because the young ones get so into it and it is super simple to make it look fabulous.
Here’s some inspiration:
Set the tone for your party with a creative invitation, this has your guests looking forward to the event way in advance!
(the message in a bottle has to be my favourite- so cute!)
Have signs and costumes there upon arrival, kids will love this.
I always tell my clients food tables are the easiest to incorporate theme. Use simple foods and get creative, add some flags, signs, wraps etc.
Every party needs games, print out a map or a list of clues and set up a treasure hunt for the group. Pirate ring toss looks fun too!
Loot bags are a must. Make your own party mix or buy a caramel corn mix and add some chocolate gold coins to the bags. Setting them in a box or chest ties in the theme.
All of these ideas are so simple to do! Check out your local craft store, dollar store, Target. Or contact me and it will show up at your door in one pretty package 🙂
Stay Tuned- tomorrow’s post features some great party appetizers.
wishing you all a wonderful day!
