A sign outside the house welcoming our guests!
Eye-patches, bandannas, cutlasses and hats ready to hand out to the little pirates.
Warning sign on the pool fence. As the decking is still unfinished we wanted to avoid anyone going into this part of the garden for safety reasons.
The ship cake.
The "thank you for coming" favours. We wrapped little chocolate bars in gold paper as "ingots" and the skull shaped cookie cutter I found on the Thurs at Aldi of all places, after trying all the more obvious baking suppliers unsuccessfully!
Finally, some pirates arrived and so did Pirate Peacock. From the moment these little pirates spotted Pirate Peacock sauntering down our street, lugging his pirate chest full of treasure, they were mesmerised. Apparently he had docked his ship nearby and was looking for some buccaneers.
Pass theTreasure Chest.
Tug-O-War (the little pirates LOVED this activity!)
Even this super-cute Pirate Princess had to walk the plank for being rude to the Queen. (Pirate Peacock was also very funny!)
The Treasure Hunt
Where is that treasure? The X is on the ship wrecked dinghy!
Finally they found it and had to whack it open with their cutlasses to get to the Pieces of Eight!
The Captain and his cake.
Thank you for coming to my party!
For those that have asked about Pirate Peacock contact:
He was absolutely fantastic! Brilliant at keeping in character and entertaining the children, I could not recommend him more highly!
