A Pirate’s Life Guest Dessert Feature

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

This pirate themed party almost threw us overboard! Johanna from Mums Little Party Secret sent us these photos from her son Morgan’s birthday. She and her husband decorated and constructed that pirate ship by hand (amazing!). Johanna also created the cupcakes and cake. After months of construction, the day finally arrived for Capt’n Morgan III’s maiden voyage. Johanna and here husband were fearful of housing the ship outside as storms were predicted. They made the decision to set up “ship” in their home. Luckily, their ceilings are high enough.Capt’n Morgan and his shipmates were kept entertained with games like tug-of-war and apple dunking and, of course, being at the helm of the ship. Sweet treats included blue jelly cups, “Shiver me Timber” chocolate planks, chocolate cannonballs, and chocolate cupcakes. The crew snacked on treats throughout the party and took home treasure bags filled with loot at the end of the day.

Fantastic!  If you like this check out these other great “ship” related posts here and here.

    I’m sure that little boy had a blast and his parents,
    well, all I can say is “CHAPEAU”!

  • Thank you all so much for your lovely comments.

    A lot of hard work designing, building and decorating our Pirate Ship but definately worth all the hard work seeing the joy on our little mans face. He definately enjoyed his big day.

    I am sure a lot of you are wondering where on earth we have put the Pirate Ship after the party? Thanks to my very talented and clever husband, he designed it to completely flat pack. So it is packed away in our storage room – ready for it’s next sailing adventure. We are able to transport, set up and style the ship in under 2 hours.

    It is our newest addition to our themed party packages. Now a lot of other little Pirates can enjoy it too.
