Our little guy has always had a love for pirates, so it was an obvious theme for his 6th birthday. A lot of the things that made the party unique were diy. The plank, sand-pool with treasure, and decorations were made.
Pirates- not too "kiddie", he wanted the party to look authentic. So we tried to steer in this direction.
The plank was just a painted-on board that was secured on two pallets, the kiddie pool was filled with sand and Mardi-Gras beads, jewels and gold coins (as well as the pouches) were all purchased from Oriental Trading.
The cake and food:) My mom is a gifted baker- it's a yummy as it is beautiful!
