Pinterest Pirate Birthday Party

This one is going to be picture heavy because I have a fun hangover.

Baby Blogworthy’s birthday party was a huge success. We had a great crowd of my closest friends and family, good food, cute decorations, the best cake smash EVER and lots of baby playtime.

We had him down for a nap and while he was napping transformed the house into piratefest 2011. I wish I would have gotten a picture of the look on his face.

I’m sure you’ll remember how much I love But-R-Cream (r) icing from Walmart. Here is where we pretty much die from sugar overload.

Cheese cubes with pirate flagsThe food consisted of cheese cubes, crackers, chips and dip, a veggie tray, calzone rolls with homemade marinara sauce, Sweet Hawaiian Roll ham sammies and raspberry punch.

We had some fun printables so our guests could “dress up” like pirates, including a pirate hat, eye patch and mustaches on a stick.

The guests left with their very own pirate booty — which included gold bars, gold coins and “jewels” (Skittles!)

We even had pirate shaped cake pops by Bits and Bites by Ana (delicious and adorable.)

As you can tell, I got a lot of my inspiration from my favorite website. It made planning so easy. I was able to start planning months earlier than I would have normally and as a result, found the most creative and cost effective ideas. I can honestly say this party turned out perfect.
I also want to give a shout out to Cottage Industrialist, where I found my printables, including the pirate hat and cupcake wrappers/sails. I cannot BELIEVE this blogger has these available for free. They are amazing quality, well designed and easy to put together.
Today I feel happy and blessed. One thing I couldn’t cut or print or bake or glue was the love that we felt yesterday for our little boy. I will never forget how special his first birthday was.
