A Princess Pirate Birthday

Happy 7th birthday to Brielle!  

Brielle really wanted to have a princess pirate birthday party this year.  She was so excited to help out with every detail.  She even made her own party invitations!  She made the drawing and then I scanned it in to my computer and added the text.  Next, we burned the edges and added a gold doubloon and then sent them out to friends.

Dad, I’m almost a teenager!

We had a treasure hunt and lots of different game stations set up all around the yard.  We were so thankful for a sunny day!

We had plenty of accessories for the kids to dress up even more like a pirate and then they sat down at the table for a "make your own treasure map" craft.  After everyone arrived, it was time to start the treasure hunt!  We split into four groups, the Buccaneers, the Sea Dogs, the Swashbucklers and the Scallywags.

The kids played Captain Hook's Ring Toss, Pin the Treasure On The Map, Dig For Treasure (in the sandbox), Swab the Deck (sweep lots of pirate beach balls around a cone and back), Color & Sign The Cardboard Pirate Ships, and even got Pirate Tattoos!

For lunch, we had Sailing Hot Dogs, Cannon Balls (orange cheese balls), Pirate Jewels (fruit bowl), Fish & Chips (goldfish and potato chips), Polly's Crackers & Gold Nuggets (crackers and cheese), Veggie Planks (carrots and celery).  The food was a huge hit, especially the Sailing Hot Dogs!  

Scurrrvy Pirates!

The pirate themed cake made by Rachel Boswell was amazing and tasted as good as it looked!  Brielle got every present she could have ever dreamed of having and absolutely loved being surrounded by friends and family throughout the day.  She was so happy and felt like every detail of the party was just perfect!  

Thank you to our friends and family for helping us celebrate Brielle's special day, we will treasure the memories forever!
