We’ve posted a-plenty on children’s pirate parties, but now offer some ideas for the adult buccaneer.
Pirate Party Decorations
Point your spyglass toward the Treasure Bay or Pirates Cove collections for large pirate decoration pieces such as ships and palm trees. Dig up a treasure chest prop and plenty of fishnet, raffia and colorful tissue parrots. Use a skull-and-crossbones flag to mark the party spot, or one of our pirate banners that you can personalize with event information.
For evening functions, we are loving the lighting effects of our safe Table Torch Decoration and Hanging Flaming Torch!
Pirate Party Activities
For additional grownup activities, we recommend visiting websites such asTalkLikeAPirate.com, where you can generate hilarious pirate names and personas for all of your guests, pick up new recipes for grog, and learn a sea chantey or two.
