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!

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.
Each place setting had a pirates 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 pirates gold chocolates.

The friendly little pirate cookies and sailing cupcakes are by Samantha, too. Pirate and cannon ball cake pops were created by Cakes and Biscuits by Lisa.
