Jensen's 1st Birthday - Pirate Party

Last weekend we had Jensen's 1st birthday party. We are so lucky to be able to celebrate with all of our amazing friends and family.

I couldn't find any invites I liked, so I found some scrapbook paper cheap (.20 cents a sheet!) and bought a whole bunch. Knowing I would use it for other aspects of the party.

I ended up making a banner, thank you tags, and all the food name tags out of the same paper.

Here's the Banner, It's kinda hard to see. (don't mind the mess, I hung this up a week before the party)

Here's the Treasure Chests (favors).

I found the boxes and all the favors on Amazon. I forgot to take a picture of what is inside, but there were temporary pirate tattoos, eye patches, gem rings (for the jewels), pirate flags, kaleidoscopes, Pirate Booty and sticker sheets. I also ordered some gold coins for the treasure chests, and for the cupcakes

Now onto the food and food tags! (my pictures didn't turn out that great. Guess that's what happens when I throw a party at 10 am and scramble to get everything done in time and still try to get pictures of it!)

We had Pirate Jewels (fruit)

The cupcakes were the "Pirate Gold" I just made chocolate cupcakes with gold cream cheese frosting.

Jensen's smash cake (which he wanted NOTHING to do with!)

Dead Man's Fingers (little smokies)

Fish and Chips

Cannonballs (black olives)

Pirate Booty (of course!)

Walk The Plank Sandwich (a sub)

Here are the close ups of the name tags

Silly birthday boy wanted nothing to do with his cake, seriously didn't even touch it!

I also had an adorable shirt made for him. I didn't really get a good picture of it, but if you need to get a custom shirt made I definitely recommend Zoey's Attic! Seriously amazing!

I can't believe my baby is one already! We had an amazing time throwing him a party!

  1. Quite impressed with the arrangements done whole heartedly by the planner. I think booking one of the gracious event halls for rent will be the best option for my daughter's second birthday next month. All the other arrangements will be done by my husband. But the cake design and decoration patterns are to be decided by me.
