Pirate Themed Boy’s 5th Birthday Party

By  | Last Updated:  

This birthday boy’’s pirate party will have ye liftin’ yer goblet high to propose a toast to the lass who set this pirate ship a-sailin’! Renee, at Lottie and Me, built a clever dessert table “inside” a ship to suggest a pirate themed birthday! This decoration idea was executed with such charm; I really like what she did with this popular boy birthday theme. The invitation, cake — —all of the sweets — —and the party favors are so well-coordinated. I’’m certain the five-year-old birthday boy and his guests had a grand time swaggering ‘round the room! Drink it all in with these photos by Naturalight Photography.

Pirate Birthday Party Invite

Party invitations surely excited the guests-to-be because they looked like treasure maps.

Once the boys arrived at the party destination, they were invited to “dress like a matey”; a costume area enticed with an over sized trunk, bright red sashes and pirate hats.

In costume, guests were invited to a treasure hunt dig. Candelabras, seashells and sand topped the guest table, but I’’m convinced the over-flowing treasure chest is what would captivate attention. Bars of “gold”, golden coins and jewels were spilled over the center of the table.

Pirate Birthday Party Favor Ideas

Each place setting had a pirate’s goblet and a treasure favor bag full of coins. Water bottles even wore pirate wraps. The dessert table was fronted with a ship’’s silhouette (notice the “water” at the base).

Black fabric flags were tied to the “masts” and stabilized on the table top. Burlap wrapped containers hold cannon ball chocolates, shotgun bullet candies and pirate’s gold chocolates.
