If you’re on a *treasure* hunt for creative pirate party ideas… X marks THIS spot! 😉
I’m excited to share this Pirate Party theme with you today. It features one of my favorite color combos and lots of playful (& totally doable! 🙌) ideas. Scroll down for a closer peek at everything – from 3-ingredients Caribbean Punch to cheeky Pirate Bananas, “X Marks the Spot” Loot Bags, and more.
Pirate Party Printables
P.S. I have 2 expanded and customizable versions of these pirate party printables available in my store:
1. the Pirate Birthday kids party collection (pictured below) 🥳
2. the Ahoy, Baby! baby shower collection 🍼
These paper mache letters are a great way to personalize the party too. In addition to pirate phrases, try decorating the name or initials of the guest of honor!
“Caribbean Sea” Pirate Party Punch
This tasty party punch will have pint-sized pirates beggin’ for more! To make it, combine 1 gallon of Berry Blue Typhoon Hawaiian Punch, 2 liters of lemon lime soda, and 32 oz white grape juice. Serve in a drink dispenser embellished with pirate-y trims like nautical rope, chains, and giant craft jewels. Get the party punch label here.
Jolly Roger Jello Ships
Cute toppers are for more than just cupcakes! Little ones will love these fun & colorful jello pirate ship snacks.
Proof that even “healthy” party treats can bring smiles. (P.S. This a cute “anytime” surprise for lunch boxes too!)
Pirate Party Sandwiches
Cookie Cutters make sandwiches (or “sandys”) fun too! I added some crushed potato chips to the PB & Honey for a bit of that awesome salty/sweet combo AND so we could label them our “crunchy skulls”. Get the customizable pirate labels here.
Homemade Pirate Party Cake
I’m definitely no pro when it comes to cake decorating, but I’ve enjoyed challenging myself to find easy/doable ways to make homemade cakes still look awesome. Gotta say I love how this one turned out! See the first image for a full view of the cake, and then the image below for a close-up of the top.
Colorful store-bought candies (grape Starburst jelly beans, red licorice, rock candy, and a gold-wrapped chocolate) plus a printable topper did the trick for this “x marks the spot” inspired design. And the topper IS customizable by age – the printable “pirate sail” with the number on it is available in 1-9. :)
Pirate Dress Up Station
What little pirates wouldn’t love to dress like a MATEY?! Use a printable sign to invite them to plunder some goodies to dress up with…
And of course, you can never have too much gold at a pirate party… ;)
X Marks the Spot Favor Bags
Send your guests off with a little “loot” before they sail away. These cute DIY favor bags are super easy to make!
Hope you’re able to have some fun with these ideas! If you need more inspiration, check out our Pirate Party Archives here on HWTM.
