Yesterday was my niece Scarlett’s 11th birthday party, a pirate-themed affair.
Cap’n Scarlett was afraid of nothin’! Dueling to the death!
…And runnin’ from small puppies! ;)
Her ship was the biggest in the sea (backyard).
Her jolly roger raised high (upon her dad’s chest) with pride!
And she had bounties of treasure! (How awesome is this cake Suzi made?!)
So much booty had Cap’n Scarlett that she gave some to landlubbers and scalawags alike.
And she makes time for arrrr-t projects! (Flag-making contest: the best flag made in 2 minutes wins purple doubloons!)
Okay… I think I have to break out of character now. Suzi anticipated that we wouldn’t have the heart to cut open the treasure chest cake, so she supplied strawberry cupcakes, too.
I supplied these golden pirate soaps as part of the “booty bags” for the kids. (Though a few of the adults wanted the soaps, too!)
Scarlett always has great birthday parties, and yesterday was the perfect day for it. It got me thinking about what I want to do for my next birthday… At least I have plenty of time to plan!
