Ahoy there ye pirates!!!

Arggghhh the pirate party is done with....all shipmates had a blast!

I had lots of fun getting my sons pirate party organized & now that its done i think i need to focus on Christmas!!

Here are a few things i made using my cricut for his 5th birthday
I made this for the table centre piece....i then chucked some chocolate gold coins around it...which i found surprisingly most still there at the end of the party!!
I called the ship S S NOAH.

Nothing cricut here.... just the party plates & everyone got a choc coin

This was his cake....he had wanted this cake from the first time he had seen it in the shops....woolies was able to write his name on it when we ordered it!

I found these cute sails online for cupcakes...the kids all wanted a cupcake!!

We had lots of games for the kids....we did pass the parcel, find the sea creature, Pirate Pete says, Pirate bobs, blast the cannons and then a treasure hunt to find the treasure chest! Here are the kids looking for the clue....i made the bottles & clues & sadly they all went home with some of the kids! they loved the did i!

They were super easy to make!! grab some clean 600ml plastic bottles & some masking tape & away you go! it does get tedious after the first 2 bottles but the joy on their faces was worth it!! I then Tim holtzed it with distress inks & cut out some cute pirate decos from wrapping paper & cut out the numbers with miss pink cricut for the bottles.....for the clues i found a great old world map & in paint i wrote the clues out over the top...printed & then cut them out!!

Noah really wanted this pinata when we seen it....i grunged it up again using tim & cut some piratey things on the cricut ie a pirates life for me, pirate party & some skulls not to mention the big X marks the spot for the treasure hunt!!

By now you might be about ready to walk the plank...but hang in there im nearly done!!

I bought some bubbles for the kids as a prize...however they did not look at all like a pirate would own such a miss pink came to the rescue & cut out tiny little skulls with ebony vinyl...argghhh now they looked the part!!

I made a banner plus a pirate party poster which we put up ....yeah i think im nearly done.....

I also cut out Pirate ships for one of the beard, blue beard & black beards ships!!

I made these lunch bags into pirate loot bags for the kids....they each got one with their first pirate prize & then used them for the pinata at the end of the day...arrghhh they took forever to do & Timmy came through for me again...those inky squares are Tim holtz & i used a skull left over (template) from the cricut to ink up & some alpha stamps & then i drew treasure maps islands boat etc on each square.....let me just say im one dedicated party planner!!!

So there me hearties i think i covered the party quite well ....nobody got eaten by a crocodile or made to walk the plank...all pirates were returned to their landlubbers in one piece with a huge smile a balloon sword & a rather large amount of those scurvy pirates that stole me treasure hunt bottles!!

hope you made it through all those pics in one piece...if i have forgotten something keep an eye out for another pirate post!!

  1. Holy *insert gobsmacked word here* THAT is AWESOME! You went whole hog! Love it. The little bubble bottles are so cute. The map, banner, you covered it all alright! Great work. You had better start putting a price on your party deco's. When people see this, you know you are going to giving out deco quotes. x
