My Party: Benjamin

Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil

Ana thew a terrific pirate bash for Benjamin and his matey's: Pirate was Benjamin's theme choice all along. After seeing lots of great pirate parties we got some inflatable swords (the greatest pirate item ever), balloons, tattoos, paper hats, skull flag picks and other goods from Ebay stores (yes, they ship to Brazil).

The skull paper garland was an important part of the decoration, bought at a Brazilian website. We chose to serve cold sandwiches in 7 different flavors, so we would please everyone. The online invitation and the sandwiches tags were inspired by an old pirate map, really cool. Arranging small tables for the little ones was a great idea, they loved it. Instead of a big cake we got delicious chocolate cupcakes.

Thanks Ana!
