I am a sucker for my kids most of the time, and when my Little Mr. requested a "supa awesome pirate party" I couldn't resist.
Here's a little peak at our festivities......
We set up a little table with pirate gear for the kids put on. Here's Little Mr. ready for some action!
E-Man had some fun too!!
The food was all super easy to throw together. Jello with cutie slices and a pirate flag pick. Bones made from pretzel sticks and mini marshmallows, dipped in white chocolate. Oreo popcorn, Cannon balls- just whoppers. A big bowl of goldfish crackers were our "Shark Bait". My Husband and I decorated the Pirate Pops w/ edible food markers, and some red sprinkles. The "Scallywag Sandwiches" were just peanut butter and Crofter's fruit spread (the best best ever) with a jolly roger cut out. We put blueberries and grapes on sword picks- for something a little healthy!
We made the labels ourselves, printed them on cardstock and propped them up with corks. We have a lot of corks in our house.......
The decor was easy peasy too, a fishing net on the table, corks, gold coins, shells, and old cigar boxes gave it a beachy feel.
We rocked a cake from the bakery at our favorite grocery store. They did a great job!
This look describes how I feel every time I eat Jello!
And this is what it all was for- My two little guys with huge smiles on their faces. I made those faces, and I am yet to create anything half as wonderful since.
Thanks for checking in with our family, and popping by my little blog!
