How to Throw an Awesome Pirate Party

Time surely flies when you're having fun. Little Tobe turned three in January, and he loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates, so when his birthday mercilessly snuck up on me, I just had to throw him a Pirate Party.

It might seem like an intimidating task, but pulling together pirate décor and playthings is not only easy, but great fun. I grabbed a few goodies from the shop, added some other pirate themed pieces and voilà: I made my little man’s day! Check out my blog for all the elements.

Want to throw a Pirate Party for your own child or child at heart? Here’s what you need:

Paper lanterns – they’ll add a nice look to your party room.

Vintage suitcase – this makes a great treasure chest snack tray.

Beaded necklaces – get them in black, white, gold and silver and add them to your treasure chest.

Gold deblumes – you could also use chocolate coins, but not if you actually like chocolate.

Cupcake holder – there's no party without food, so be sure to fill this three-tier server with the desert of your choice and decorate with beaded necklaces. We have a variety of these in our shop in metal and wood.

Treasure chest favor boxes – they're cute and easy to put together and stuff with pirate booty for your guests to take home.

Black and white stripe table runner – fancy and disposable, this runner really completes the look of both your dining and serving tables, and (bonus!) you can even use it to wrap your gifts.
Wooden lanterns – the pirate’s go to lighting source will add a nice touch to your party table. Many sizes and shapes in the shop.

Pirate box – use a vintage wooden crate as your table centerpiece and fill it with various snacks for your guests and gold coins and necklaces for effect.

Pirate dining set – paper pirate plates and napkins will complete the look and make for a fast, easy cleanup.

Pirate eye patches – the quintessential pirate accessory is an absolute must at a pirate party, at least for the guest(s) of honor.

Pirate tattoos – in my case, I used Jake and the Neverland Pirates temporary tattoos, but you can get really creative with these, especially if you're throwing an adult party.

Spotting scopes and swords – they're a child's pirate party must-haves, although not nearly as essential as the pirate eye patch.

Red knit fabric – unless you want to buy individual bandanas, you can custom cut this to size and make a bunch of pirate headbands for all your small, medium and large guests.

Take all the above, throw in a well-placed “Arrrrgggghhh, Matey!” and have an err-mazing Pirate Party!
