Pirate Party

Ahooy MAteeys!

A few tips for your next Pirate Party that will blow you and your ship of little ones into undiscovered treasures and untraveled oceans of fun!!

First things first, ask your child if there is a pirate of his preference and remember to celebrate age appropriate. We have done 1 year old and twelve year old birthday parties, back yardigan pirates, captain feather sword, hook and Jack Sparrow. Each style is different so decoration and character host must vary accordingly to theme and age.

Now, having said that, let us give you some general tips. As a matter of fact, my favorite party celebrations are when we have a pirate party theme period and then we can go all out creative with activities that blow the imagination of both kids and adults.

INVITATION IDEA

Set the mood from the invitation. One of my favorites is the message in a bottle. There are many twists to this but a general idea is to dye paper with tea. Print the info with great pirate wording  first and then burn the edges. Tie some twine around leaving one long end. Take empty water or small wine bottles and insert the message .  In the bottle,  put a little sand and add  few tiny sea shells ,then roll up invite with the long end of the string hanging out of the bottle so the kids can retrive the message in the bottle.

The text for the invitation could be something like this:

AHOY MATE!

THE TIME HAS COME…

TO TREASURE HUNT!

SO PUT YOUR EYE PATCH

OR PIRATE HAT

CAUSE YOUR’E INVITED

TO HAVE SOME FUN

SO DON’ T BE LATE

OR  WALK THE PLANK !

DECORATIONS

Here is where you can get really creative and fun. We have created ship centerpieces, island centerpieces, treasure chest center pieces,  map table cloths, a huge ship to hold in the presents, imported shark and skeleton piñatas (life size), mastils and pirate flags are awesome for a garden decoration.

PARTY GAMES

The most popular of course is treasure Hunt. Hide small prices for kids in different places for them to find, print out maps and riddles for clues. Another fun game is toss the coin, the one who tosses the coin the farthest wins a price. You may bring a pirate host to your party. Our very own captain Carl is just awesome!

Captain Carl will interact with kids and play all kind of fun games with them.

He will Stop at nothing to recruit anyone to his ship “The Dark Skull”, one of the most feared ships on the open sea! This pirate leader is brave and loyal to other fellow pirates, he is an incredible rope climber and he would valiantly go down with his ship if necessary.
He is very greedy and loves treasure-seeking. He is famous for his elaborate maps and clever riddles to hide his treasures, he has a problem though, he has memory loss, so he often forgets what he wrote, where the map is and even worse, what the riddle means!
Help him find the hidden treasure and get ready to sing eerie pirate songs at your next party!
