Pirate Theme Real Party Feature

Today being official “Talk like a pirate day” –  I am sharing some images that one of my blog readers/facebook followers Melanie sent me of her son’s Pirate Themed 3rd birthday.

I was excited to share these because often I see and share images of parties styled by professional stylists and I think it is important to also see parties hosted by mum’s who aren’t professional stylists to see what an amazing and fun party can be created by someone just like – you!

Melanie who has a 3yr old and a 13 month old made all the decorations, the cake and most of the food herself – not an easy feat with two toddlers at home! However she said it was all worth it to see her son Max have a great time and see how excited he was at the set up!

She used the printables from One Magic Day who is one of the vendors in the children’s party directory. Cookies and macarons are from “Oh Sugar”.

I love the clever use of props at this party such as the wooden elements and creative cake stands Melanie made. So many fantastic details in this party which I have mentioned below.

Enjoy the photos and all the creative ideas of this wonderful pirate party!

Fantastic treasure map backdrop that Melanie made is perfect for this theme:



Clever styling with the gold coins spilling out of the hessian bag:

Love these toppers in the jelly which look like boats:



Melanie made this cake herself and I love the sand effect. Also how fantastic are those mason jars on stands?

Melanie has done such an amazing job. Thanks so much for sharing Melanie!
