The final post of the pirate party series is all about the fun that was had.
If I had one gripe about winter birthdays, it would be that nothing can take place outside (okay, I have lots of gripes about birthdays that fall near Christmas).
But we made do with the space we had (and poor lighting for that matter). And I don't think the kids minded being confined one bit; birthday parties bring out all sorts of energy regardless of the setting.
I set up a mini photo booth with all sorts of pirate accessories. Each guest got to take home a bandana and eye patch in his or her treasure bag and pose with additional props.
Since the female guests outnumbered the male guests, I made sure to be well stocked in pink bandanas.
I couldn't resist letting Crew join in on the fun.
The female guests were especially enthralled with Crew.
I think it's safe to say that Blake's first official birthday party was a success. That is some pure glee on his face.
