Who says pirates and princesses can't co-exist - much less party? Sarah's kids and friends proved that they sure can. She tells us more: In order to accommodate a party for two of our children with close birthdays, we threw a delightful Pirate and Princess Party. Lily, who turned six, and Abram, who turned two, were thrilled with the idea.
Although costumes were optional, many of the children arrived donning their finest princess and pirate attire. For those who were not dressed up, we provided magic wands and crowns for the girls and eye patches for the boys.
A cardboard castle stood in the garage for guests to color and decorate, and tables were dressed with treasure boxes filled with take-home booty.
For entertainment, we had a scavenger hunt that sent the children throughout the neighborhood in search of clues that would ultimately lead to treasure. The hunt ended in a grouping of trees where a goody chest (pinata) hung from an Oak, awaiting its' beating.
Next, it was dessert time. Instead of a traditional cake, we opted for "pink snowballs" and "ding dongs" piled high on a platter. And what cake is complete without ice cream? Our "booty bar" was set on the porch with an array of treasures destined to top ice cream sundaes- there was Liquid Gold Caramel, Black Gold Chocolate Syrup, Sparkling Sugar Gems, Magical Sprinkles and more.
In the end, each child was sent home with a treasure chest of more treats. A lovely time was had by all!
