Our Pirate Birthday Party

       A few months ago our little guy informed me he wanted a pirate birthday party. I was all for this, but was amazed by how expensive a lot of the pirate theme stuff was in the stores and online. I decided I was going to make a lot of the stuff myself. I made the treasure chest, the cake, the cupcakes, and had help with his shirt and eye patches for the kids. Here's the photo dump of the party.

So that's the party...Well parties actually! We had a "school friend" party in the morning with all of his school friends...9 kids under the age of 5...craziness! Then in the evening we had a family and family friend party with 7 more kids there. I was one tired momma when it was all over, but I wouldn't change it for the world. It was all worth it when he told me it was the best birthday ever :)

PS- If you want to know how I made any of the stuff, please ask and I will make a post on how I did that item or items :)
