    What a fun party! I love the craft. I am also impressed with how many kids you had invited and entertained. You are brave! I also love the picture of the little mermaid (on the tablecloth) that is waving at the Suburble watermark you added 🙂

      Oh, thank you, Amy! I don’t think I had NEAR as many as you invited to Grace’s bash! I so loved that tablecloth. I wish it wasn’t the throw-away kind. 🙂

    This is so adorable. I love so much that she had a pirate party. You did a great job planning it. What a cute idea to have a craft. I’m only a little bummed and jealous that I was not invited to such a hoppin partay!

      Oh girl, you ARE invited! I’m having a virtual pirate party all week! You get to look at pictures and then… welll… yeah… maybe it’s not as good as actually coming to a party. Maybe your little womb-darling will be a pirate fan as well? You and Aaron would make dashing pirates! 🙂

        You can’t beat Double Awesome – it’s like the double rainbow! 😉 I’ll bet that you throw some pretty awesome birthday parties yourself, ma’am. 🙂 Happy first day of school to you! Hope it’s a good one!

    Oh how fun! Lila is the perfect party planning assistant in my book! What a fun kid craft make and take too! I’d say you outdid yourself girl! Oh…and the pirate hat pictures Lucy are positively adorable!!

      It was such a simple make-and-take that I couldn’t help but do it. I’ve found that having some sort of solo activity always available is great for the kids who take a while to warm up to a party. Plus, it takes up a chunk of time too! 😉

      Lila really is the perfect party planning assistant. I’m either creating the next Martha Stewart, or a monster. Can’t decide yet!

    Hilarious! I made the mistake of getting married on International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Maybe I should do this for our anniversary!

      Yes, you should. Nothing says “marriage” like eye patches and “grog”. 🙂 How fun that you got married on International Talk Like A Pirate Day. How fun that that day exists! 🙂

    What a great theme! Love the treasure chest craft!! With older kids, I certainly miss hosting birthday parties like this!

      What will I do when I can’t have total control over my kiddo’s birthday party?!?! That will be a humbling experience. I will probably have to go totally bonkers when its Hallowe’en and Christmas then….

    This is the most adorable party!! I like that you did a little themed craft. Don’t you love Dollorama for party supplies? They’re great for holiday stuff too. I decorated my place for Christmas last year with their garland and it held up really well.

      Oh, Dollarama is a fabulous place for all things holiday-and-birthday related. I’ll definitely have to check them out soon, now that the holidays are starting to tiptoe in the room! 🙂

    Being “free years old” is amazing and what a super fun party to celebrate being “free”! Themed parties are so much fun….especially when you can find so many goodies at places like the dollar store!

      Lucy still has her moments where she whimpers and says, “I dont’ want to be free anymore…. I want to be TWO!”

      Kids are weird.

      And yes, parties that can use the dollar store are fantastic! I think I’m always going to do it this way from now on! 🙂

      You’re so right, Shauna. It’s all about having a great time!

      I admit that I get hung up on the details sometimes. I’m sure that as a designer, you probably know what I’m talking about! 🙂

      Thank you so much, Heather! I do love a good craft (and I think most of the young’ns do too!). Plus, it’s something that they can work on off-and-on throughout the party! 🙂

    Oh wow, a girl after my own heart! When my hubs came home from one of his tours we threw an adult pirate party, so much fun! But I must admit not as cute as this one! Adorable!
