Whether you’re looking for party ideas for Halloween or an October birthday, this pirate party from celebrations.com looks like a swashbuckling good time. And it all starts with the unexpected arrival of a pirate mask Halloween party invitation in the mail—talk about building excitement ahead of time! The text on the invitation can be changed to work for either a Halloween party or a birthday party, and the colors are a great starting point for the party.
Red and black were used throughout the party, from the food to the decorations, to keep the theme simple and impactful. Each guest had a pirate name skull & crossbones decal to make them feel part of the gang. Gold “treasure” in the form of candy favors and serving trays made fun accents.
Black cannon-ball cupcakes were simple to make, along with red cherry pomegranate punch, which was a huge hit with the kids. They also decorated their own sugar cookies with black eye-patches for munching, and picture frames for take-home mementos. By hook or by crook, this pirate party will be the talk of the neighborhood.
