This Princess and Pirate Birthday Party was sent in by Tali of A Party Studio. Her daughter wanted a pretty pink princess party, but since there were going to be boys at the party, she turned it into a princess and pirate party – and just as cute! I love that she included fun activities to keep the kids entertained, and glitter tattoos are a great way to keep a princess happy. I love that you can buy an easy kit with stencils for this! Who needs an expensive glitter tattoo artist for $150, when you can get the glitter tattoo kit for $13! Love that. Lots of yummy sweets were served and food with fun themed names, including sword kabobs, catch of the day, and ships n’ dips.
In the Spotlight:
- Tulle “curtains” and tissue poms for the sweets table backdrop
- Sword Kabobs with skewered mozzarella, grape tomatoes and basil
- Kids activity station with glittered tattoos, foam stickers, and princess wands to decorate
Princess and Pirate Birthday Party
The party in Tali’s words…
“My daughter wanted a princess party for her birthday but since she had a few boys on her guest list, we decided to make it a classic princess and pirate party. The colors she wanted were pink and more pink (of course) and she agreed that we could add blue and teal. We kept the look very simple- with a pretty crown to keep the princesses happy and a ship for the pirates.
When guests walked through the front door, they were able to pick out a pretty princess costume to wear with a wand and tiara, or a pirate eye patch. The guests loved dressing up and changing in to various dresses.
For the dessert table, we had home made vanilla cake pops, vanilla cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, popcorn in cones, Hershey kisses, marshmallow and of course a pretty two tier chocolate and fudge cake and gold coins (pirate treasure).
We tried to keep the party food in keeping with this fun theme and we served: royal heart and butterfly fairy bread, caprese sword kabobs, catch of the day (goldfish), ships n dips, a fruit platter suitable for a royal princess. Of course, we also served pizza because that is a huge hit with pirates and princesses alike.
Since the children at the birthday party ranged in age between two and five, we decided to skip traditional party games. Instead we had a craft station (loads of foam stickers and star wands to decorate) and a glitter tattoo station. Everyone loved the glitter tattoos, even the adults.”
