Party Like a Pirate  Back to Events

If your birthday boy or girl loves to play pirate and "Ahoy, matey!" or "Shiver me timbers!" are common phrases in your house, a swashbuckling celebration is in order. 

Get guests into the spirit by sending handmade map invitations.

Decorate your pirate's cove with a red-white-and black-color scheme. 

Cover your dining table with a large map and place foil-covered coins and plastic jewels on top. 

Hide pirates' loot around the house and send guests on a treasure hunt to discover the secret stash. When they return, have them act out their favorite pirate characters - from Jack Sparrow to Captain Hook - during a game of charades.

After charades, serve food fit for little shipmates. Have an assortment of beverages available for guests to grab from a treasure-chest cooler. To make the chest, cover your cooler with brown or beige construction paper and embellish it with glitter and jewels. And to top it off, check out pirate party cakes at your neighborhood Publix Bakery.
