Whether you’re looking for kids’ pirate party ideas for Halloween or for any time of year, this pirate party from celebrations.com looks like a swashbuckling good time. And it all starts with the unexpected arrival of a pirate mask Halloween party invitation in the mail—talk about building excitement ahead of time! The text on the invitation can be changed to work for either a Halloween party or a birthday party, and the colors are a great starting point for all of your kids pirate party ideas.
Red and black were used throughout the party, from the food to the decorations, to keep the theme simple and impactful. Each guest had a pirate name skull & crossbones decal to make them feel part of the gang. Gold “treasure” in the form of candy favors and serving trays made fun accents.
Black cannon-ball cupcakes were simple to make, along with red cherry pomegranate punch, which was a huge hit with the kids. They also decorated their own sugar cookies with black eye-patches for munching, and picture frames for take-home mementos. By hook or by crook, these pirate party ideas will be the talk of the neighborhood.
