Yo ho yo ho the pirate’s life for me 🙂 Recovering from a wild night, but it was so worth it to celebrate my hubby’s big birthday! Hopefully the hangover hounds will cure me soon…. Just wanted to share my pirate party highlights! I LOVE theme parties, and as Mike’s first birthday with me as his wife, I wanted to throw him one he wouldn’t forget!
The party store doesn’t have a lot of “boy” themes, so it was this or pokemon…glad I went with pirates!
This was his invitation to the party…..he was upstairs napping and I put this outside his door with a bandanna and eye patch! It was a surprise party and he was very surprised. He didn’t really get the whole pirate theme but once it all came together he loved it 🙂
Here’s our guests…..Mike’s bro and girlfriend. Chris is considering getting his ear pierced after wearing this clip-on all night. Sarah is NOT impressed 🙂
There’s the birthday boy eye patch and all! I had so much fun finding a lady pirate outfit….like my crazy jewel necklace??
For dinner, I don’t really know of pirate foods….but I made these crab and salmon enchiladas with fried rice, it was AMAZING!
Even little Winston had a little fun 🙂 We ended the night with “Mom’s Better than Sex Cake”….haha no seriously that’s what it’s called. I remember finding this recipe in the box when I was a kid and saying “this is that chocolate caramel cake you make….THAT’S WHAT IT’S CALLED!?” German chocolate cake with caramel and sweetened condensed milk drizzled over top, topped with whipped cream and caramel chips! Mmmmmm good stuff.
In hopes of seeing Mike’s karaoke debut, we walked to a local pub for karaoke night. No such luck but I did get to dance the night away with Captain Cummings 🙂 Fun night!
Happy Birthday Michael!
