A Pirate Party

By  | Last Updated:  

A pirate party makes a great theme for just about any celebration!  Angelique, of Angy Design, styled this yellow and black pirate party as a promotion celebration for her kindergarten class.  The fun ideas would work equally as well for a birthday party.  Look closely at the simple, but effective, decoration elements and sweet cupcakes or you may find yourself in Davey Jones’ Locker!

I love that Angelique broke free from the traditional red and black color palette associated with pirates and tried something new.  Her printable designs and color palette are fresh and unique; they pair interesting pirate inspired patterns and a cute monkey wearing a graduation cap.  I like the font used on her banners and printables that gives an old world, pirate feel.

Using a backdrop of yellow, striking pennant flags hung as a nice focal piece for the refreshment table. I especially like the pattern choices Angie used on the pennants. The table was adorned with old crates, burlap and fish netting which helped set the stage for fabulous pirate accent pieces and desserts.

Boy's Pirate Birthday Party Favour Chest Ideas

A treasure chest is a wonderful prop for a pirate party, especially when filled with party loot.  This chest was filled with chocolate coins, beads and year-end favors.  It made a great, authentic looking prop.

Towering over the table like the crow’s nest over a pirate ship, the stand of cupcakes with yellow frosting and printable labels looked like a popular dessert choice.  Scrumptious whoopie pies with printable skull and cross bone sails also looked amazing!  Keeping with the promotion theme, darling diplomas were neatly displayed, made from chocolate rolls and yellow ribbon.  I love the creativity!  A cute pennant flag banner was an eye-catching accent against the yellow tablecloth.

Boy's Pirate Birthday Party Water Bottle Ideas

To quench the thirst of little pirates, water bottles were lined up on the table, boasting attractive beverage wraps which coordinated with the pirate theme.  Water from dressed up water bottles always tastes better!

Yellow and black dessert plates, spoons in a bow-accented mason jar, and adorable pirate napkins from Birthday Express, rounded out the refreshment table.

What a fun twist on a pirate theme—I bet this darling promotion celebration gave the class one more reason to love Angelique!
