Pirate Party - 1st Birthday!

Nicholette here today: My little Jack turned one this weekend so we had an AWESOME pirate party!

Here are the rules to throwing a pirate party:

1. The cap'n must have proper attire.  I made an iron-on shirt that says "Arr! Tis' the captain's first birthday!"

2. There must be a delicious treasure chest cake! This one was made with marshmallow fondant and Butter Pound cake!

3. Share your booty! Marti Gras beads, chocolate coins, eye patches, and favor bags make for great booty.
4. Prevent ye scurvy! Serve up some creative fruit sculptures!


5. Optional--Wear some weird contacts to add to the theme...and to creep out the guests. :)
