A party isn't a party without costumes and props! But don't stress out the parents of your child's friends by making them come in costume. You can set up pirate accoutrements in a treasure chest by the door for kids to slip into as they walk into the party. Or, you can place pirate accessories at each child's spot at the birthday table as party favors.

Purchase some of these pirate-themed props at a local party store or online:

  • Eye patches
  • Skull-beaded necklaces
  • Message-in-a-bottle necklaces
  • Pirate tattoos
  • Pirate rubber band bracelets
  • Skull rings
  • Paper pirate hats
  • Pirate dog tag necklaces
  • Head scarves with fake hoop earrings

And, if you approve of that sort of thing, fake plastic swords are always an option.
