1st Birthday Pirate Paaaaarrty

My son turned one in May, and I knew almost immediately what kind of party to have. Claire and Charlotte looove Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and Peter Pan, so Owen also likes them by default. We went to Disney World a few weeks before his party and went on the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage (definitely recommend! I might have to do a post on just that in the future.), so I already had a pirate outfit ready for him. It was a perfect theme!

I made a cute invite. As always, I print them at Costco using the blank card template. You can't beat the price or quality!

I created a first year collage, like I also made for each of the girls, and again, printed it at Costco. It's 20x30 and only cost 10 bucks. Love them. I decorated the mantel with Jake toys and stuffed animals that we already had (remember, my girls are obsessed!). pirate4
Target had their pirate party stuff on clearance. Score! I got a great deal on the birthday banner, table cloth, plates, cups, and napkins. I got the pirate buckets on clearance after Easter--they were supposed to be Easter baskets. I put goldfish and chips in one, and pirate booty in the other.

I made the cupcake toppers, pirate flags for the pirate ship hot dogs, and the food signs.

I bought bandannas for the guests, as well as foam pirate swords--those were a big hit with the kiddos!  pirate2

I made the vest for our Disney Pirates cruise, so I'm glad he was able to wear it again! He's an adorable little pirate. I also made the girls' outfits, and hair bows, for the pirates cruise. They had cute rag skirts as well, but they took those off. :) Also, Claire is doing her best pirate impression, which is why she looks goofy! Silly girl.

I had so much fun planning this party! Everyone had a great time, which really, is what it's all about. Because obviously the birthday boy didn't care about the theme or details. :)

  1. Amazing! Even I planned a pirate themed party for my nephew last month. It was in one of the Chicago venues and it was a great success. The kids had a lot of fun and I baked a huge cake for everybody. I simply loved the decoration and arrangements done here. It’s fantastic!
