Pirate Birthday Party - Here are some great ideas for your Pirate Party!

Pirate birthday party invitation

In the Pirate Adventure treasure hunt, a pirate party invitation is included. If you want to make an invitation yourself, you could make one in the form of an old treasure map. Make the paper look old by dabbing it with a tea bag and carefully burn the edges. Draw a treasure map and write the invitation by hand in thick black pen. Roll it up and tie it with a bit of string and you're all set. Ahoy Matey!

Pirate birthday party costumes/fancy dress

Having a pirate party is popular since it is so easy to buy or make pirate outfits. Making a pirate costume with what you have at home can also be fun! To look like a real pirate, all you need is a baggy white shirt (an old one of Mom/Dad's), a pair of black trousers or tights and shorts. A vest also works well. A bandana tied on the head, eye patch and a gold hoop earring are key accessories - and don't forget the pirate hat! A hook instead of a hand can be made with construction paper and aluminium foil. Cover a clenched fist with foil, make a hook out of cardboard and cover it with foil then attach the two pieces with hot glue or a stapler. A parrot on the shoulder and a sword at the hip will complete the pirate look!

Pirate birthday party decorations

You can buy a lot of party material for a pirate-themed celebration, from table cloths to dishes and costumes. However, you can also easily create a pirate ship atmosphere without having to buy everything. For example, make the colour scheme black and white, make a pirate hat out of old newspapers or decorate with black and white balloons. Check your cupboard for wrapping paper which works really well as a disposable tablecloth or for cutting out placemats for each plate.

Pirate birthday party menu ideas

What kinds of food do pirates eat? Meat and vegetables skewered on their swords? Exotic fruits from faraway places? Below are a few suggestions to help create the perfect pirate party food, drinks, cake, decorations and costumes.
Swashbuckling skewers
Put a few meatballs or chopped up sausages/hot dogs on a wooden skewer and add pieces of red/yellow pepper and pineapple. Serve with tortilla bread, Tex-Mex salsa, mango chutney, sweetcorn and cocktail tomatoes. The skewers are delicious hot or cold. If you are having your pirate party outside, serve the skewers in a cup (you could cut the skewer in half to fit it in better). Each child gets a cup and should sit down to eat their skewers.

Tip! If you are worried about little ones and the sharp end of the skewer, simply cut it off to a blunt end when you're finished piercing the meat and vegetables.

Exotic pirate punch
Make pirate punch with exotic fruit and inspiration from the Caribbean islands (kiwi, melon, pineapple, banana, passion fruit, mango etc.) Mix together exotic juice, fizzy fruit juice and bits of fruit in a large bowl. Add ice before serving. Serve with colourful straws and a wooden skewer cut to size with a pirate flag (see decorations).
Pirate birthday party cake
Make a yummy cake with a sponge bottom and your child's favourite filling. Cover it with black marzipan. Cut out a jolly roger (skull and crossbones) in marzipan or draw it with white icing. Decorate with candy skulls or ready-made pirate decorations. If you don't want to do a cake, a banana split is sure to go down well with the little pirates! Just decorate it with candy skulls!
