Arrr! It’s a Boy’s Pirate Themed Birthday Party
A birthday boys romantic notion of adventure on the high seas has spawned many a pirate themed birthday party! Todays version was created by Andrea, of Where the Green Grass Grows, for her sons sixth birthday. Andrea supplied the decorations and Tanner supplied the imagination for this favorite boy party idea. Cake, cupcakes and treasure were discovered on the dessert table, just next to the ship sailing the seas.
- This pirate themed party was a celebration for a five year old boy.

Andreas invitation with skull and crossbones on a striped background must have generated excitement as soon as potential guests opened their mail. On the inside, a treasure map and a sailing ship delivered party details. The invitation looks terrific, but my favorite line is the witty ArrSVP – ha!
The party venue was a perfect choice; a sizable ship in a local gymnasium floats above a sea of blue foam. Kids and pirates can walk the plank and jump into the foamy sea without real danger! Tanner loves to dress up like a pirate so he wore his costume to the party. Mom provided pirate hats for all the guests to wear and treasure boxes, which were filled with goodies to take home.
The main dessert table was covered in texture with burlap, linen and red and white stripes. Corked, glass bottles and rope add to the Captains table.
Black tulle references fish nets and a flag was made of black silk. Yo-ho-ho and Tanner pennants were suspended on the table where a treasure chest of jewels and golden coins rested next to pirate accoutrements of skeleton keys, spy glass, compass and treasure map.
Tanners birthday cake was a deep ocean blue, embellished with golden doubloons and topped with an ominous black ship. Cupcakes in golden sleeves were decorated with medallions that carried images of a ship, skull and crossbones and an invitation to walk the plank. There were also cookies in the shape of doubloons and ships.
Sea water and sea punch quenched thirst. A boys pirate themed birthday party affords many iconic images to spark the imagination while still allowing the pirates to stay safely moored at home! Make sure to follow Where the Green Grass Grows on Pinterest as well.
