Jaden turned 5 in April! I can’t believe my baby is getting so big!! We had a very special pirate party with some of his little friends to celebrate!
When the guests arrived they had to SUIT UP!!
Every Pirate needs a pirate eye patch, sash, bandana and of course a pirate sword!!
Here’s Jade in his pirate gear!
(he wasn’t a fan of the bandana)
Here’s the table. Jaden got the Pirate Ship for his birthday, and it worked perfectly for the centerpiece. The table settings & banner are from Target’s new party line, Spritz. Super cute.
my Mom sent lot’s of Happy Birthday Jaden & pirate vinyl which we had all over the house, and the pictures in the frames are actually gift bags, from Target too :) The tiny bunting flags were an awesome free printable found here. She has them ready bigger, and I just shrunk them down a little for these ones. We also used the cute ship sails and flags, and put them on banana’s and called them “banana boats… didn’t get a picture of that finished product.

I had lots of fun with this! I found lots of these ideas on different blogs, we had:
“crunchy bones” – pretzel sticks
“gold dubloons” – gold wrapped mini chocolates
“shark bait” – gold fish crackers
“cap’n jaden’s sandwiches”
“cannon balls” – cheese balls
“Pirate grog” – drinks :)
here were our favor bags… totally simple, just some fun pirate things inside, bags from Target
we had “gold dubloons” laying around everywhere & this is the full size banner again from here
his friends brought him some amazing presents… he was a super happy boy!
after the friends arrived and got all of their pirate gear on they went to the back for sword fights & to visit “One-eyed Lauren’s Tattoo Parlor”
yep, just realized i spelled tatoo wrong in my sign… oops.
Here is Sissy with her awesome pirate ship tattoo!!
we went on a treasure hunt, and found clues all over the house.
that led to the treasure chest!!
everyone was so excited… especially my handsome birthday boy!
I got these cute, cute cupcake toper designs from Shindig Parties. I also used the designs for the water bottle wraps, which I really don’t have a picture of…
it was a little bit of a rough day for little miss Kennedy… she kinda likes things to be all about her :) Fortunately she had two things that helped: a delish cupcake & her awesome Auntie Lauren to spoil her.
oh, and her sweet brother taking time out of his special day to take a pic with his little sis…
I love these two so much.
It was such a fun party, and Jade felt so special. Sword fights broke out all over the place, as well as all of the “pirates” realizing how funny it is to hit the balloons with theirs swords until they popped. It was pretty hilarious.
Poor Jade got hit hard in the face (our only casualty) with a sword right before this shot, but other than this moment, he had a perfect birthday.
Happy Birthday Jaden!!
You are such an amazing blessing in my life! I love you, and I am so proud of what a big boy you are becoming!
