Thursday, Arrrgh, and Etsy

So I have an almost 4-year-old pondering what kind of birthday party he would like....there have been a few ideas batted around so far- robots, pirates, sea creatures. Last year it was construction trucks all the way- no waffling or doubt, but I can tell the decision will be tricky this time around.

Now if he does go in the pirate direction, then I already have the whole thing figured out! I love the illustration on these postcard invitations.

Do I admit I would have him wear something in keeping with the theme? (because I would)

I can't believe there is a pdf available that will ensure every guest gets a fantastic hat, eye patch, and....... parrot!

The decorations would be simple- flag garland and jolly roger balloons

For the party games- pin the patch on the pirate, a treasure chest pinata, and these snazzy crayons next to stacks of paper for drawing your dream ship or the ultimate treasure map.

Even the cupcakes would get into the spirit of things!

Finally, each party goer could depart with a goodie bag perfect for the party's end- complete with cookies, stickers, and a pin.

Hopefully the final decision will be made soon- for now I will keep my fingers crossed for the pirates to win out. Ahoy matey!
