Walk The Plank!

10

The only thing that my son, Tanner, wanted for his fourth birthday was a pirate party, so we planned one! The color scheme consisted of red, white and black, but to really set the party’s tone, we found amazing pirate themed items ranging from garland to muslin party favor bags.  Throughout the house we decorated using all things pirate, such as the ‘Beware’ sign on our front gate, and pirate ships in the pool, in addition to the perfect treasure chest, which we found at a local antique shop, and filled with party favors. To add to the fun, we brought in a local artist for face painting, and what pirate party is complete without the pirate of all pirates, Jack Sparrow? We served a buffet of snacks, which were presented in small containers perfect for little hands, and a classic vanilla cake that was almost as sweet as my little one.
