Pirate Birthday Party {Free Printables}

 I was SO excited for my baby's 1st birthday! I spent about 11 1/2 months planning it, and I was SO happy with how it turned out! We did a pirate theme, but instead of the normal black and red, I went with an orange and turquoise color scheme! (Yes, the party had a color scheme) I'll give you a little peek into what I did...
Lets start with the invitation! It's really a pretty simple invite! I just designed it with Photoshop, I attached a download of a blank one so you can add your own text!

Now onto the cupcakes/cake. I just bought white cake mixes and white frosting and colored them with food coloring. The orange cupcakes got turquoise icing and the turquoise cupcakes got orange icing. The cupcake toppers we super easy, I just designed them on photoshop and then printed them at costco as 4x6 prints. Then they got cup out and taped to a toothpick, and there ya' go!
The '1' on top of the cake was just a wooden number from Roberts Crafts that I painted orange and glued to a large Popsicle stick. Then I applied white vinyl dots to make it fun!


 Ready for another download? How about some Subway art? This was just an old frame I had that I spray painted with Rustoleum Aqua Spray Paint and made some word art for! Simple enough! But this was the most complimented decoration at the party!

 And just a few pictures of the other decor... some blocks I made, along with a few of my little mister's 1 year old photos...
 Some anchors I cut with my cricut, hung by white thread...
 And, again thanks to my cricut, a happy birthday sign!
And I have to throw in one of the birthday boy! :)
Happy Birthday Mr. B!!

This is the cutest! Really, I am thinking that I may have to do something like this for my little guy.

Ps--It's 'talk like a pirate' day on Monday, so I am totally doing the anchor idea with string. Thanks girl!

I am such a fontaholic! Couldn't resist your pirate word art. I was searching for pirate kid party ideas and this will work great! I am also having custom pirate flags made for party attendee favors from https://www.the-flag-makers.com/
