This year for my son's 4th birthday we went with a Pirate Theme...Arg!
He dressed up as a pirate last Halloween and really enjoyed it so it wasn't a big surprise when he chose this theme. If I was a smart mama, I would have seen this coming and wouldn't have donated his costume earlier in the year...but alas I did! As you know, I try not to spend very much on their parties so I had to come up with some creative ways to make his costume and decorate the house.
Pirate Ship on the Seas
Palm Trees Islands
Walking the Plank
There were a few more details that I haven't shown here like mini treasure boxes everywhere with more jewels and chocolate coins, a pirate ship piñata, hidden treasures, fruit skewers, loot bags but from the moment of seeing my son's reaction to having the house decked out for his party...I simply forgot to take pictures of everything else.
Oh well, the important thing is that he loved every bit of it, he had a great day with his family celebrating his 4th birthday and he reminds me of the fun he had that day every time he puts on his pirate hat....which, a month and a half later, is still often :)
I am a creative soul and a mother of two.
