Warning: Photo overload in this post!!! So my little Kobi had his 3rd birthday Pirate Party a couple of weekends ago. We all had such a ball, honestly the best party we have ever had. Awesome theme too, we have never done a themed party for the kids before.....bit of work but loads of fun:):) Mum made the boys costumes (Cooper's was bought but we added the bandana and sash). Just spotty and strip materials from Lincraft. Mine and Tim's were a mix of op shop and made! We have friends that own a Jumping Castle Business so we had a really big Pirates (of the Carribean) Castle. It was great even the adults had a go;) I borrowed the blue scene setter and all the mesh added some pirate wall hangers, banners and balloons and this made for a really cool backdrop!
So here are some pics from the day.
My big boy now (within the week he turned 3 his toilet training just clicked....woo hoo!!!!!!!) I now have 2 big boys and a baby I keep telling him:)
Struggled to get a good pic of the 3 of them (that is happening alot lately)! But this one is soooo sweet.....I love it, I love my boys!!
Here's the "Young" Pirate family:):)
Kobi and his awesome cake that our friend Krystin made him!! So he was a little too close to the candles for my liking but he did blow the candles out (eventually):)
Big boy pirates......
Pirate ship fruit bowl and then all the kids made fruit swords:)
Oh my so much fun, one definately to remember!!!
I just want to share with you a quick tutorial on Kobi's Pirate invites.......so extremely quick, so cool!!!
I used inks + Shimmeringz in Heavy Metal.
Firstly I cut out my 2 pieces of paper to size. The background paper being a bit wider than the actual written part. I cut around the edges randomly making the cuts all different lengths. I teared and ripped the written paper aswell (I just printed this onto normal A4 paper).
I distressed around the edges with my ink pad.
I crumpled up the paper and then pulled it back out and adhered it to the backing cardstock. I then added drips of alcohol ink around the edges of the text. Sprayed my Shimmeringz to give a bit of shine!!
Added a little flag with masking tape and there you have it.....Pirate Invites:):)
That's about it for today, I better get off here, so much to do, so little time!!!!
Hope you like my pirate post.
