Quintessentially pirate, a red and white striped backdrop set the tone for the dessert table. I love the personalized poster with a photo of the birthday boy, which acted as the backdrop focal point.
A darling banner hung from the table front. To add to the pirate décor, bottles were filled with treasure maps and cups with “rum”.

Pirate bounty overflowed from an old wooden chest. Swords, weapons, telescopes, precious “jewels” and beads made up the pirate plunder, carefully guarded by stuffed parrot, Rio.

Across the table, a leather case covered with fish net gave rise to a tall toy pirate ship, complete with its scurvy crew.

Sweet delights such as candy bracelets and edible “cannonballs” were plunder for young pirates to enjoy. And there were cute pirate cookies too! They are by Mar-Valicious Bites and I’m told they were as delicious as they were cute!

The cool factor of a pirate party is elevated when an impressive cake is served.

Created by Sweet Stix, the amazing pirate and treasure chest embellished cake was displayed on a riser, complete with hand cut waves. The little pirate on top of the cake appeared to be rising tall against the circling waves.

At the request of the birthday pirate, guests were treated to a treasure hunt. They sang as they followed their captain leader who helped them find long, lost treasure. They were thrilled with what they found! The treasure included leather pouches, telescopes, eye patches and pirate jewels.
Little pirates continued their party adventures by walking the plank to earn a bubble sword, followed by sliding down a pirate slide for one final treasure chest reveal:  custom pirate hats, personalized with each guests’ name!

“Aargh” you as in love with this pirate party and dessert table as I am?
