After Elizabeth provided her tips for planning a party like a pro, I really wanted to do a little more to help make your own party look and feel really special. So, if you’re planning on having a pirate-themed kids party, you’re in luck! I figured the best way to help you out (since I can’t throw each of you a party) would be to create some free pirate party printables.
I love this pirate party invitation, so I used it as my inspiration to design 7 different free pirate party printables for your very own parrrty! Included you’ll find a pirate hat, water bottle labels, cupcake toppers, treat bag labels, food tent cards, a party banner (whole alphabet included), and straw flags.
Our treasure chest shown above was purchased from a local craft store and painted with black and gold – similar.
All the items are set up on 8.5″x11″ paper to fit any standard printer, and the treat bag labels are designed to fit perfectly over sandwich or treat size baggies, so they are super easy to use! (I highly recommend printing on a lightweight card stock if you can.)
The cupcake toppers are best cut with a 2″ circle hole punch. I turned the punch upside down so I could see where I was cutting (the designs are slightly larger than 2″ so you won’t have white edges). Then, I glued them back to back (I used a glue stick to prevent wrinkles), placing a toothpick in between the two layers. Finally, I added crushed graham cracker and edible gold pearl decorations to my cupcakes to look like sand with buried treasure!
Have any other ideas for a pirate-themed party, or another theme you’d like us to try? Let me know!
