Pirate Party Invitations

Set the mood for your party with great decorations like a Jolly Roger flag flying on a ship’s mast, some some old wooden signs pointing to the Caribbean or a banner over the drive saying “landlubber beware”.  Cover the party table in black or red and accent with streamers, balloons and confetti.    If your really ambitious you can create a pirate ship out of some large appliance boxes for a special play area just for the party.

Sometimes the memories are even more special when guests get to take home the artwork that they’ve created themselves at the party.  Whether they make treasure maps or decorate treasure chests, it will be something special that helps them remember and share their event with others.

Pirate Party Activities

What pirate party is complete without some pirate games like a treasure hunt?  Games like walk the plank, pin the eye-patch on the pirate, or a cannonball toss, add excitement to the party and provide a time for everyone to interact.

Pirate Party Games

A pirate party just isn’t the same without all the pirates dressed in their buccaneer outfits.  Being shipwrecked and marooned at the party really requires the right outfit and the magic of pirate costumes makes the party special.

Pirate Costume

Don’t forget snacks and drinks for all of your buccaneer guests.   Certainly snacks and drinks that prevent scurvy are always top of the list, but sometimes it’s best to incorporate some healthy vegetable snacks while providing a pirate dip.

Pirate Snacks and Refreshments

Although any pirate cake will do, a pirate’s ship cake is popular with those who like to bake.  For those who prefer a simple and less complicated treat, individual cupcakes and ice cream in individual cupcake liners can reduce the mess of serving princess treats under pressure.

Party favors are loved by everyone and say thank you for coming.  In fact, adding a thank you to every favor bag, or sending a thank you out after a party is always polite and appreciated gesture.
