Pirate Theme Birthday Party Ideas

Shiver me timbers! Ahoy ye hearties and avast thy chase for a booty of pirate party are right here on this blog which marks the X. For all sea dog pirates who are searching for party idea treasures for their young swashbuckler, look no further.

Are you ready to transform your home into a Caribbean port and your backyard into a pirate ship? Pirate parties only come once in a lifetime and you want to make it one that your little pirate will remember forever.

INVITATIONS: The invitation is a drawing of an island with various features labeled (eg., Deadman's Swamp, Pirate's Cove, etc.) The font similar to Old English in keeping with the pirate theme. The party blurb was "Aaarrr! Come if you dare to (boys names) pirate party. They are turning 7 and need shipmates to swab the deck, walk the plank and look for pirate treasure. We set sail on, Pier located at.., RSVP First Mate."

Ask them to wear striped t-shirts if they had one. The paper is aged by dabbing it with a wet tea bag and once dry the edges are burnt to give it that old "treasure map" look. The invite is rolled up and put into a bottle with some sand, small shells and skull confetti. Each bottle had a black label with a white skull and crossbones and the child's name on it, and were hand delivered.

St. Patrick's Day Parties

St. Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17 because that is the feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It is believed that he died on March 17 in the year 461 AD. It is also a worldwide celebration of Irish culture and history. St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday in Ireland, and a provincial holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
In Ireland on St. Patrick’s Day, people traditionally wear a small bunch of shamrocks on their jackets or caps. Children wear orange, white and green badges, and women and girls wear green ribbons in their hair.

Join in the fun and celebrate the Luck of the Irish by throwing a St. Patrick's Day party for your family and friends. We've put together some fun, "green" ideas to get things started.
