Birthday P-arrrr-ty

 so i guess we will start off with pictures of the birthday boy. the happy birthday song was done last but this is the way the pictures uploaded so i will leave them here. my little guy has been crazy about pirates since last September when we went to Disney world. it was a complete surprise to us but we loved it. he talked about having a pirate birthday party starting February of this year. the day finally came and he had such a great time. we sang happy birthday to him and when we were completely finished with the song we all said ARRRRRRGH...........and see picture below after that little guy took his pirate hat off swung it around in the air and repeated the ARRRRRGH.  it was precious. something spontaneous and totally on his one. i loved it. below are more photo of the party and the decor. it was so much fun doing this theme this year. i had a great time gathering and prepping for it all.

Saw this and knew that we would have it on the mail box at our party, for X marks the spot where the party it at.

a friend from college made signs like these for her son's birthday party a few years ago. i remembered looking at the pictures from his party and decided to made them for Little guy's birthday. I just love them. Thanks Virginia for the inspiration

this was just to cute. it was a must for the party

here i just made yellow lemonade and added some blue food coloring to make ocean water. i had seen on pinterest lots of labels at other pirate parties for pirate juice or sea water. so here is my version. ocean water. 

i came across this site that had a printable for a pirate party and at the bottom there was a "get yer loot" sign. i just decided to go with the cardboard like the other sign.
after writing the words on there i thought it needed something more. came across this picture when i was searching pinterest

pinned this cake and knew it was what i would be doing for the cake. it wasn't enough to feed everyone so i just made an additional sheet cake to have extra.
extra cake. my mom added the black licorice boat
after cutting the cake i had lots of extra cake and didn't want to waste it so i made cake balls with it and labeled them as cannon balls. i saw the idea here with cheese balls which i would have love doing too since cheese balls are just so awesome.

shark salad. this was so much fun. when little guy saw it though he said, yea watermelon. i don't think he even realized that it was a shark. silly boy.

a pirate party isn't complete with out an area to walk the plank. we just so happen to get lucky and have the party at a pool where there was a diving board so the plank was already there.
