(sweet customers) Gavin's 6th Pirate Birthday Party

I was so excited when I open my inbox to find this amazing Pirate party from Amy L.B. Photography  using our Pirate printables she did an amazing job on her son's Gavin's 6th Birthday, not to mention she made everything herself with the help of her husband on the pirate ship. She took lots of detailed photos so sit back and enjoy her amazing party along with fabulous Photos!

Heres what Amy had to say, This vintage pirate party was filled with neat antique props from my husband's family. Miniature suitcases for photo slides and cosmetic case from the 40s and 50s. It was the perfect timing that we inherited these items days before the party. The display wouldn't complete without them. I spent lots of time looking for the perfect pirate birthday printable and I found them at CupcakeExpress (http://www.etsy.com/shop/CupcakeExpress?ref=seller_info). Ashley created the ideal pirate theme party package that was not too cute for a 6 year old boy and had lots of character. I had way too much fun with everything and spiced them up with tulle, streamer, burlap, etc. 

Favors-Favor boxes were made with printable from Cupcake Express and I glued ribbon as the handle. Included mini color pencil, eraser, pencil sharpener, and tattoo.

Activity & Games-Craft tableCrayons, color pencil, glue sticks, color marker, pom poms, Pirate foam stickers, Pirate Ship cutouts.- Photo BoothWe had a full table of props for the kids. All the kids dressed up as pirates and had tremendous fun posing for me. I love all the little pirates running around and enjoying the party.-Treasure HuntThe treasure box had LOTS of chocolate golden coins and crayon skulls and bones we made.- Water Balloon FightWe decided not to have them fight at each other but to create a ship for them to throw water balloons at. My husband, the pirate ended up standing in the back as target. 100 balloons were gone in less than 3 minutes!- PinataI made this tougher than I thought. I was afraid the candies were too heavy so I added extra layers of newspaper. In the end, no one could break this skull! We ended up tearing apart with help from the kids.
