Part of the reason for making them Jake & Cubby for Halloween was to go hand-in-hand with their birthday party theme. Pirates! More along the line of Jake & the Neverland Pirates... not so much Pirates of the Caribbean or gory/scary ;)
First had to tackle the invites. I just used Microsoft Publisher, tea stained some paper & printed them out. First I went for a whole page and it just looked too big so I sized it down.
Then rolled them up and tied with twine to personally deliver.
This weekend, Jake and I worked on a few things...
Painting a big red "X" for the front door
Then painting a "sail" just like on Jake's ship to put up in their picnic table outside.
Which I made just by using a piece of fabric, painters tape & painted with arcylic paints! Easy! Greg saw it done and thought I bought it like that. He's so easily amazed, its great!
Looks just like it right? Right ;) Sorry so grainy, only one I could find of the ship!
Cut up scarves to wear on their heads.
A couple months ago I scored these napkins for $.20 each at Michaels... then the gold stuff was on sale at Target for $2 each... and since then have been snagging a few things here and there (like the clear not so gory skulls & bone platter for $.50 each - my only after Halloween deal)!
I thought using those palm tree stirs for fruit kabobs would be better than anything with a point ;)
In a bit I need to call and confirm this!
I hope this all comes together! Fingers crossed! Or should I say bones crossed? ;)
