Pirate Birthday Party

My son turns three tomorrow.  I cannot believe how fast these three years have gone.  One of my favorite mom duties is the birthday party planning.  I go way overboard (check out his Mickey Mouse 1st Birthday).  My son currently loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates, so I thought it would be a perfect year to have a pirate birthday party.

Decorations
When I think of pirates I think of red and black.  So I definitely wanted to make sure for his Pirate Birthday Party that I used these two colors as the focus and then added lots of traditional pirate touches combined with Jake.  Since the party was outside in the Florida heat, I knew balloons would not last long and decided to use tissue paper pom poms in their place.  I also used circles on fishing wired as a beautiful backdrop for the food table.  I made a few cute Jack and the Neverland Pirate party centerpieces from popcicle sticks and print outs!

Games
With toddlers it can be a chore to organize group activities.  So I set up some games/activities that could be played as they wish.  We had a Captain Hook Ring toss, Pirate ship plank to walk, Cannon (water-balloon) toss, and a Treasure Dig.  I think the most popular activity was the plank walk.  Read all about all the Pirate Birthday Party games here and find out how simple it was to create these fun activities that surprisingly kept 13 toddlers very entertained!

Menu
Since the party was at the park, I needed the menu to be simple. But I still wanted it to be a very pirate themed menu.  My son’s favorite food was the pixie dust popcorn (recipe here).  Lots of people loved the tick tock crock jello but I was in love with how the treasure chest cupcakes turned out.

Favors
I had treasure map party favor bags filled with goodies for the kids.  Plus each kid was given pirate accessories: sword, eye patch, gold necklace and beach ball.  Read more about these cute Pirate Party Favors here.

    This is such a great theme – and way to go all out! I’m the same way with my son’s birthdays. He’ll be 3 in August. (So far, we’ve done sock monkey and Sesame Street themes.) I’m definitely pinning this for future party planning!

    Sweet! My son is 4 and he loves the Neverland Pirates. The decorations look fabulous and your little one looks like he enjoyed it. I hope the weather wasn’t too hot outside for you all.

      It was hot but not too bad, There is a splash pad at that park, so the kids went mid party to cool off!
