Harley's Pirate Party

Pirate Party
             Walk the plank with inflatable shark, stripy table cloth, inflatable palm trees, Ships helm 

This party works perfectly for boys or girls alike. I used lots of props to make the theme come to life and the children really enjoyed getting involved.
  • Edible bits
  • Ahoy there cupcakes (Vanilla cupcakes with buttercream swirls and pirate toppers)
  • Oreo coins ( spray Oreo biscuits with gold and sliver Dr Oetker food spray)
  • Marshmallow pirate heads ( With an edible pen draw face details onto large marshmallows, then melt some candy melts, dip the large marshmallows in the top to create a hat, stand on parchment until dry, push a lolly stick into the base of each to serve)
  • Macaroon clams (Make any macaroon recipe, colour and top with matching sprinkles before baking,  fill with buttercream and a large fondant pearl)
  • Cannon ball bonbons (sweets from Tesco)
  • Treasure chest cake (There are lots of how to's on Pinterest)
  • Selection of sandwiches (Little finger sandwiches 2 bites and they are gone)
  • Mini scotch eggs (one bite morsels)
  • Mini sausages
  • Chicken nuggets

  • Themed props
  • Helium Balloons (I love the height that helium balloons create)
  • Walk the plank (I used 2 upturned plant pots and a short plank of wood, a blue rain poncho)
  • Dig for treasure chest (my friend Elli's old chest filled with play sand and toy jewels)
  • Inflatable Parrots, shark and palm trees (These really help to set the scene the boys especially loved the shark see links) 
  • Skull bunting (from B&M stores)
  • Red and white stripped table cloths
  • Ships wheel
  • Eye patches
  • Telescopes
  • Gallon food boxes ( savoury bits went into the boxes)
  • Printable drink bottle labels (I found a good selection on line, see the link below)
  • Handmade food labels ( A really fun way to display whats available)
  • Skull (a halloween tea-light holder)
  • Glass fish & chips bowl (My vase which had been put trough the diswasher filled with fish & chip shaped crisps)
  • Pirates ship mast (made from 2 wooden broom handles a Childs pirate flag and some old material) 
  • Tattoo parlour (I set a little corner for a tattoo parlour the children loved it)
  • Pirate punch (I used my drinks dispenser filled with pink lemonade with a pirates punch label )
