Pirate Playgroup Pictures (Say THAT 5 Times Fast!)






Soundtrack:
~ Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack
~ sea chanty's
~ harpsichord music

Menu:
~ salty dogs (hot dogs with ketchup and mustard)
~ cannonballs (black olives)
~ cutlasses (carrots)
~ pirate grog (ginger ale served in a cleaned out rum bottle I got from Tommy Bahamas. I don't drink so I went to their bar area to ask for an empty bottle and they were very accommodating)
~ ice water served in a carafe
~ chocolate pirate ship cake

Activities:
~ cannonball fight (black water balloons)
~ walking the plank (into a kiddy pool)
~ sprinklers
~ slip 'n slide

Decor:
~ an assortment of sails (muslin), rope, skulls, candles, pirate treasure, worn leather, sea shells, silver platters, coconuts and palm fronds on the food table
~ the entry table where guests could put their belongings had the welcome sign made to look like it was written by the same pirate who "wrote" the invitation in a bottle , ink bottle and quill (washed out oil diffuser that I coated with paint, and feather), brocade fabric, pirate hook, sea shells, skull candelabra, and stuffed parrot.

This party looks fabulous. I am also thinking of a pirate party for my son's 5th party. I love the suttle colors.

I agree..The colors are so suttle but very cute. I am definitely planning a princess and pirates party for my kids' next birthday.
