5 Fun Themed Birthday Parties for Boys


#3
Pirate Party

Arrrgh!

Kick off a pirate party with fun invitations: think treasure map with a red X over the party location or send a message in a bottle. Decorate with black and red, rope, wooden crates and a pirate's chest filled with stolen treasure (toy jewelry and gold foil-covered chocolate coins), and don't forget the board for walking the plank.

Greet your mateys with eye patches and bandanas to tie around their heads -- maybe smear a little kohl around their eyes to give them that Captain Jack Sparrow look. Then let the looting and plundering begin!
