Your party should be as fun and unique as the invites that initiate it. To express the feeling of being in pirate territory, why not opt for an under-the-sea-themed party? Decorate with pirate-themed balloons and dine off shark-shaped plates from Paperless Post Party Shop. To help your guests celebrate in style, hand out some bandannas, eyepatches, and toy swords to make them look like they're ready for battle.

Fun activity ideas for a pirate birthday party

After receiving such a fabulous pirate-themed invite, expectations for your party are sure to be high. So keep the excitement levels raised by hosting some pirate-style activities.

Every good pirate needs treasure, so start your party off with a treasure hunt. Hide coins, jewels, and other trinkets around your yard or house, and give your guests a map to follow. The first one to find the treasure wins a prize! You could follow this strong start by hosting a ‘Pin the Patch on the Pirate' competition or a costume contest.

If you're looking for a more active adventure, try setting up an obstacle course with elements like walking the plank, climbing the rigging, and avoiding cannon fire. Or, to enjoy your party less competitively, try setting up a photo booth with props like swords, eye patches, and fake parrots.

How to thank guests for coming to a pirate party

Your guests have taken the time to join you on your pirate-style adventure, so it's essential to show your appreciation. One way to do this is to send them home with their very own loot bag filled with pirate-themed treasure, like chocolate coins, temporary tattoos, and ocean-themed stickers. Or maybe you'd like to send your own personalized thank you notes? We've got plenty of options for that too!
