Our son celebrated his 7th Golden Birthday earlier this month. He was very excited for this birthday & I was excited to plan his party. I love planning parties, but especially golden birthdays. I remember feeling let down when I had my golden birthday at age 23, so I wanted to do something really special for him. He chose a Pirate themed party to go with the golden theme. We enjoyed searching Pinterest together to find ideas. Everything turned out great!
I went with easy & simple decorations and favors from Party City. I made signs for the stations with Microsoft Word- Easy! The kids loved putting on tattoos, playing with the gold coins & wearing plenty of gold necklaces & pirate hats!
Arghhhhhh.... my little pirate was all ready for his big party! I bought his adorable shirt on Etsy!
My friend's sister made this awesome pirate cake & delivered it too! I was so impressed with all of the details. The black & red balls were gum balls and the gold coins were edible too!
The food... we went with EASY food too! He wanted hotdogs, chips, & olives. I said, "no problem"! Perfect for the kids & super easy for me! I also made these mini labels with Word & taped them to red card stock.
The kids enjoyed running around the house & the yard for a last minute treasure hunt. My husband also made a "walk the plank" with 2x4's.
Our obligatory birthday family photo! The kids loved hamming it up with their pirate gear for photos!
Time to blow out the candles, still can't believe our birthday boy is seven years old! Where did the time go? Everyone devoured the delicious marble cake! The kids favorite part was the gum balls!
Spoiled doesn't even begin to explain this little man's birthday this year. We bought him a new mountain bike, Grma's & Grpa's went together & bought him a fly fishing rod and many many other gifts from aunts & uncles and great grandparents! He is one blessed little boy!
He was eager to get his fly rod open and head to the back yard. Grandpa was by his side to show him the ropes and how to cast for the first time. He has been practicing these last few weeks & getting better every time! He is excited to try fly fishing in the water for the first time this weekend!
This turned out to be a great birthday party for everyone, easy to host, easy to decorate
& most importantly our birthday boy had a great time!
