Kali turned two and Logan turned five!
We had a pirate birthday party for both of them at the new community centre. Lot's of Pintrest ideas put into action....
We came up with cute names for all the food:
Cannon Balls (grapes),
Catch of the Day (goldfish-idea from Cake Pop Galore), Gold nuggets (cheese squares),
Polly's Crackers (crackers! -idea from party shown here)...
The cupcake stand got another remodel with some pirate wrapping paper. The DYI project is here---made from the little wooden crates you get tangerines in!
The biggest hit was the blue jello --Shark Infested Water!
(Idea and tutorial at Happy Brown House)
Instead of centre pieces we placed pirate themed toys or books at the centre of each table. At the back of the room we set up "Coloring Cove" for the kids to play.
"What be your name Pirate?"
Having the kids wear name tags was very helpful since Logan had some friends from school who we weren't too familiar with--it was especially helpful when it came time to play games
The tattoo station!
We started the party off with a swim in the new pool at the community centre!
After some pizza and snack it was time to play some games. The biggest hit was walking the plank (idea from party on TomKat). We just painted the words on the wood with some silver paint I had and used some blue fabric on the floor. My dad suggested I make a shark---so I painted one on cardboard, put a big googly eye on it and hot glued it to a large paint stir stick. HUGE hit!
Grandpa before he fell and got eaten by the shark!
Once the kids crossed over they could get a tattoo and a pirate head scarf; red and white scarf for the boys and pink for the girls. My mom had the idea of cutting up a sheet to make them which was much cheaper than buying the fabric by the yard.
Happy 5th birthday, Loagn!
Happy 2nd birthday, Kalia!
Guarding the treat bags and presents!
Handing out treat bags and thanking people for coming. It's always important for us to have the kids do this....Kali doing this reminded of when Logan did this his Yo Gabba Gabba 2nd birthday party...
We were luck to have Zia Sarah, Grandma and Grandpa help us out! Thank you!
