Ahoy! A Pirate Party

Did you know that this Friday is International Talk Like a Pirate Day?

What better excuse then to throw a pirate themed party?! Always a popular party theme for children's birthdays, it offers up a huge rage of opportunities to decorate, to bake pirate themed treats and to dress up. Not forgetting the chance to talk like a pirate all day long!
We've been getting inspired on Pinterest for some brilliant ways to add a little pirate spirit to your party.

From beginning to end, any pirate party has to look to part, so don't forget about the invites. Get creative with some tea stained paper to make your own DIY party invites. Then throw up some jolly rogers flags around the room for an instant piratey feel. We love creative blogger Tara from suburble.com's attention to detail at her daughters pirate party and has some great ideas for crafty treasure chest activity to keep the guest entertained at the party.

We've thrown together what we think are the party essentials you need to plan to your shipshape pirate party.
