The pirate party theme is not extremely popular primarily thanks to the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. Both adults and kids love adventure, traveling at sea, fighting other pirates and finding hidden treasures. You can bring the pirate spirit at your child’s birthday party and make his/her birthday more special than ever before.
Consider different pirate party decoration ideas first. You should definitely choose some colors as predominant ones. Yellow, aqua blue, green and red are excellent choices. If you have a little girl, however, you may want to give her a pink pirate celebration.
Once you have chosen the colors, you can readily go on getting the different elements of the decoration. You need lots of balloons in the colors you have chosen. You should consider getting wall decals depicting treasure chests, pirate ships, flags, monkeys and parrots. A couple of palm stand ups will really add to the party atmosphere.
Get a complete set of pirate party supplies for the table. These can be in the theme colors you have chosen. Another option is to get specifically designed items with pirate decoration. You can even have the pieces of the set decorated with a picture of Captain Jack Sparrow. The important thing is to get a sufficient number of disposable dinner plates, cake plates, cups and forks plus napkins.
The pirate party table decoration should be not only nicely looking, but fun as well. Tablecloths with pirate motifs can be used if the budget allows. When it comes to centerpieces, you can really set your imagination free. Instead of placing pirate figurines, you can have a treasure chest full of small candy in the center of each table. Another option is to fill the chest with small favors such as pirate rubber rings, blowouts, bracelets, stickers and possibly yo-yos.
The costumes are a must for a party with this theme. You can readily find a pirate costume for your kid. Boys would love to be Captain Jack Sparrow or another one of the brave captains they know. Girls can wear lovely costumes with skirts, white shirts and vests in red and pink. The choice of costumes and accessories is generally huge. It is best to talk to other parents to see if they agree to have their children dressed up. It is a good idea to get a couple of spare pirate hats and bandanas just to be on the safe side.
The pirate party games should definitely include treasure hunt. Hide and seek, Simon says and freeze tag are fun and can be made to match the theme as well.
