Last month we styled a Pirate party for Tammi's son Kai. We wanted to move away from the traditional pirate colours of black, red and white. So we incorporated a mixture of browns, blues and a splash of red on the table.
We hand made a ship mast and tied bunting from the mast tip to the other side of the table. The bunting was made from old book pages and stamp with foam letters. We found a wooden treasure chest which we filled with gold coins, lolly necklaces and plastic rings. We then used different sized wooden crates as our raisers. Instead of using glass candy vessels, we simply folded down brown paper bags and filled them. We made pirate cake pops, blue jelly cups and anchor biscuits. The Littlest Cupcake and Cookie Shop supplied us with cupcakes and we printed off some mini red and white striped sails and wave cupcake wrappers. Lastly we included some glass bottles filled with chocolate milk and muslin loot bags which we stamped with a skull and cross bones.
As the birthday guests arrived, they were asked to don a pirate patch, bandanna and a name tag.
We also set up a photo booth with pirate props.
The tables were set pirate paper plates, bamboo boats held a mixture of berries, old lanterns, bottles with notes in them and gold coins littered the tables.
Thanks for looking and we hope that you enjoyed our pirate party.
