Setting The Scene For A Swashbuckling Pirate Party

A month ago I showed you our fabulous bottle of fun party invites for Roos Pirate themed BIrthday Party. Well, during the Easter break that swashbuckling foray took place. From the food to the decor, I worked my crafty socks to the bone and, with lots of help from my far more organised other half, we just about pulled it off….. Here is the first of a few posts…. 

From flags to masts, bunting to props here are some ideas for anyone wanting to host a themed event for their own little one.

We painted an old sheet with poster paint

  

and added a cross (because roo doesnt like skulls)

 

the scene is nearly set

Bunting
we used a mix of different styles for this. Chalk board flags are brilliant and can be used time and time again. You can see our previous use for H’s Tween themed party on Instagram. I spent hours cutting out these anchors from silver card…. Not something I would recommend….  Especially if you use the next one to frame the following…. The final cut out was more smudge than ahoy there… But yo ho and all that 

   I ordered this beautiful name bunting from the extremely talented Viv at lovingly made gifts. With an Xmas day birthday we thought Roo could keep this from his party as a special out of season present. Do pop along to her Facebook page and give her a like…. Although be warned, your newsfeed will be filled with lots of tempting handmade goodies. 

     A few final touches and we just had to wait

  1. Oh wow, you’ve really gone all out haven’t you? This is one of the BEST themed birthday parties that I’ve seen. So much love and effort clearly, well done my lovely 🙂 X X

  2. Wow – I’m seriously impressed with all the effort you put in to the party decorations! They look lovely. I love doing themed birthdays for my two (I have a minions one coming up soon) but I must confess I don’t do half as much work as you have obviously put in. I hope your little boy enjoyed his party!
