Back in May we celebrated my son’s 5th birthday. I know, it has seriously taken me this long to blog about it, what can I say, life happens and we are busy. In the interest of some privacy, I will not disclose my children’s names here on the blog, who knows how many crazy people there are out there that could find a way to corrupt my life. 🙂 Seriously though, you never know. I will begin referring to my children as B and R. B is my oldest son, he is 5. R is my youngest, he is 2. Yes. I have two boys. 🙂
So…B chose to have a pirate party this year. He wanted to invite his entire preschool class to his party. If you’ve ever hosted a children’s birthday party you know that the larger the number of kids who attend, the crazier and more chaotic the party. With a little persuasion we compromised, and allowed him to invite five friends.
Here are some pictures of the supplies we got for our pirates.
My sister found the bandanas, and I picked up the patch at Target and the sword at the dollar store.
I kept the party snacks pretty simple. Paper cups filled with organic popcorn, fruit kabobs, and pirate cupcakes.
