Playful & Modern Pirate Birthday Party Ideas
If you’re on a *treasure* hunt for pirate party ideas… x marks THIS spot! ;) I’m excited to share the new Pirate Birthday Party theme that I recently designed for Fisher-Price, which is filled with lots of ideas and free printables for YOU!
Scroll down for a close-up view at the individual ideas – from fill-in pirate party invitations to Caribbean Punch, Pirate Bananas, “X Marks the Spot” Loot Bags, and more! Then, head on over to the “How to Throw a Pirate Party” article on the FP website for the detailed instructions and downloads.
These paper mache letters are a great way to personalize the party too. In addition to pirate phrases, try decorating the name or initials of the guest of honor! Instructions here.
“Caribbean Sea” Pirate Party Punch
I always love dressing up drink dispensers, and pirate party punch in particular looks great decked out with ripped bandanas, chains, and rope! Get the recipe & free printable drink label here.
Jolly Roger Jello Ships
Cute toppers are for more than just cupcakes! Little ones will love these fun & colorful jello pirate ship snacks. Instructions & sail printables here.
Proof that even “healthy” party treats can bring smiles. Details here.
P.S. This a cute “anytime” surprise for lunch boxes too!
Pirate Party Sandwiches
Cookie Cutters make sandwiches (or “sandys”) fun too! I added some crushed potato chips to the PB & Honey for a bit of that awesome salty/sweet combo AND so we could label them our “crunchy skulls”. ;)
Homemade Pirate Party Cake
I’m definitely no pro when it comes to cake decorating, but have enjoyed challenging myself with all of the Fisher-Price parties to find easy/doable ways to make homemade cakes (by other non-pros like me) still look awesome. Gotta say I love how this one turned out! See the first image for a full view of the cake, and then the image below for a close-up of the top.
Colorful store-bought candies (grape Starbust jelly beans, red licorice, rock candy, and a gold-wrapped chocolate) plus a printable topper did the trick for this “x marks the spot” inspired design. And the topper IS customizable by age – the printable “pirate sail” with the number on it is available in 1-9. :) Full details and free printables here.
