Ahoy! This popular boys theme suits little men of all ages!
You can go rustic and wooden, or pick from a range of colours to combine such as black, white, red, blue and brown. Incorporate pirate elements into the party through the use of props to represent a wooden plank, treasure chest & pirate ship mast and include items such as treasure maps & pirate eye patches & hats. The only limit is your imagination for this fun theme. Make sure you also have a look at our Nautical theme for a few ocean inspired ideas as well.
Here is a sample of great items you can use! For loads more ideas and unique finds please contact me for an Inspiration board or Custom Styling pack!
