I posted earlier about some of our prep work, like the invites and such.
Our "theme" was slightly Jake & the Neverland Pirates... I wanted pirates without all the gore and stuff since they are only turning 5 & 3 :)
Started out with dressing the mantel (look! Lowe's Lanterns!)... it was pretty fun it's all stuff we had... I didn't buy anything but the balloons! Arrgh!
Even taped red rectangles on the floor through the house like a map... first stop the chest o'presents (that our mates were so kind to fill)...
Also to don pirate garb (the jewels chest also had coins & shells, but the kids cleared those out asap!)...
|I just dug through the remnants bin at Jo Ann's a couple times and cut up into scarves for our pirates!|
....as Shipwreck Island (it was huge & rented at a great rate! lots of fun!!)
And I tried to make it sort of like Jake & the Neverland pirates hideaway behind the waterfall and create a psuedo ship with a sail over their picnic table.
It was a really windy day though, so it's a little hard to see that. The bounce house rocked though!
After some playing after parlay... there was grub (pics mid grubbin... haha)!
Followed by some cannon fuses & fishy treats (mini choc chip
Other shots from the party...
|Table decor made up of battery-ran candles and various sand, shell, and twine items. Topped off with the hat Greg bought to wear, but didn't ... so I stuck it there!|
It was a really good time! We had fun! The boys had fun! I think our guests had fun too! It got pretty hot & muggy that day so Jake didn't get to wear his Jake & the Neverland Pirate costume for the party that I made for Halloween.
Evan was able to be Cubby though! Fun times had by all... and nice pics huh? Thanks Ellie!
