Are you wondering what kind of party to throw for your little boy? Throwing a pirate party can be easy and fun for your son, brother, nephew, grandson, or any little boy in your life.
We threw one for our son last April and had so much fun that we thought we’d write a blog post about it! We live in Corona, CA and so we used a Corona jumper rental company but you can use one in whatever city you live it. Also for the party supplies look into etsy.com or amazon.
Start by picking a Saturday where you are relaxed and available to host up to 10 children in your home. Hosting a birthday party around a holiday is never a good idea because many of the children will not be able to attend the party. Once you have picked a Saturday, now it’s time to start inviting all of his favorite friends.
Talk to your child and ask him who he’d like to invite to his party. Don’t invite too many children. This could be overwhelming for him. Just invite his closest friends. Make or buy pirate invitations and mail them two weeks in advance. Make sure to include who the party is for, what day the party is, what time the party is, and where the party is being hosted. Including an RSVP is important to know how much food to make and how many favors to have. Once you have invited the guests, now you can start planning the details of his party.
The best party about a pirate party is a cool cake! Order or make a pirate cake complete with butter cream frosting and candles! Cupcakes are also popular these days because they are easy to prepare and easy to eat. Don’t forget to put his name on the cake! If you want, you can include finger foods along with your sweets. Have water and juice available for the kids because they will get thirsty from all the activity and excitement at the party.
Remember to pick out a pirate costume for your birthday boy and have a matching hat and sword for him to where to his party. You can also buy paper hats in a party pack to have his friends where too. Activities at a pirate party can include many things, but the most exciting thing you can do is rent a bounce house in the shape of a pirate ship for the afternoon of your party. The bounce house company will deliver the pirate ship to your door and make sure that is blown up before all your guests arrive. The price of the bounce house rental varies but it is reasonable. Since it’s a unique activity, it will make your party a one of a kind event. Bounce houses allow you to have an activity at your pirate party that will keep your guests entertained through out the party. Every boy at the party will want to keep jumping in the cool pirate ship!
Once everybody is ready for cake and gifts, you can round up every body out of the bounce house and start singing “Happy Birthday!” Make sure to give a favor for all your guests to take home. Your little pirate will remember his party and because he had so much fun, he’ll probably want to rent a bounce house for next years party!
