A Pirate Party

on March 11, 2013

And so my lovely nephew James turned 3 last week. Yesterday was his much anticipated Pirate Party – the invitation won me when the RSVP section asked Arrr you coming to my party? It was another extravaganza from the party mastermind, my amazing sister-in-law Jo. Countless hours were spent getting everything ready, with almost everything made by hand and with a whole lotta love. On a perfectly sunny Sydney day, there were plenty of cool pirate outfits, crazy pirate shenanigans and some delicious pirate food. A fitting way to celebrate the best little pirate I know – when they sang, “you are my sunshine”, I’m pretty sure they were talking about this guy. Anyways, here are some of the party pics, me hearties.

Amazing, huh? Yes, ok, I made these chocolate guys - under direction from The Boss!

      When it’s MY pirate party, you’re definitely on the guest list, BCD! Will post pics from the owl party in a couple of weeks, am sure it will be just as impressive! 🙂

  3. Very clever. I’ll have to remember this for my grandson’s next birthday.

Enough about me, what do YOU think?
