A party fit for a king pirate.

Mackenzie turned four and I wanted to throw him the best party a four year old has ever had. I’m pretty sure I succeeded :)

For his birthday Mack requested a pirate theme.

I made little invitations and pirate ship signs to designate where to turn. On the day of the party, I attached red and black balloons to the signs so that no one would get lost on their way out to the beach house.

We had a complete pirate party:

A Pirate Welcoming.

A treasure chest for the presents to go in and one awesome pirate-kiddo.

A pirate baby.

An activity. I bought these little wooden frames along with stuff to decorate them (stickers, paint, treasure keys and jewels) at Michael’s. At the party, the kids decorated their own frame and then had their picture taken in pirate gear (or just hanging out at the party if they weren’t interested in dress up). I then had the photos printed and delivered the frames complete with pictures to the kids at the preschool.

Pirate Cupcakes. (Yes, I made those and yes, I need to learn how to do frosting)

We had tons of people there – family, kids and friends.

The party started at two but we were there well until after 7. With a view like this, who wants to go home?

Somebody did change into their pajamas and take a nap though!

The party was a success! And how do I know? Because Mack told me he loved me right before he fell asleep on the way home : )
