customer: swashbucklin inspiration


I was Googling {it’s now a verb!} around and came across a very fun picture of a pirate birthday party. I clicked to see more and realized it was our table decor, pirate ship, gable favor boxes (can’t take credit for the fun stickers) and polka dot & stripe black candles.  It’s rare that we get to see what magic moms put together when they buy our supplies and I have to admit I giggled a little. I still love love love that moms like our designs and decor enough to want it for their little ones. Anyway, I digress! Here is the beautiful pirate birthday party for two twin boys from the blog.


She crafted this wonderful door hanger to greet her guests and this beautiful birthday party banner. {Great work mom!}


As I mentioned, the party was for twins so they not only had this beautiful cake for guests, but they made it very special and had individual cakes for the boys. {There are our candles!}


And what’s a party without games. Love the walk the plank! And check out the treasure hunt. If you like what you see here you need to visit to read all the wonderful details and resources.

    how chic! My son is turning 3 and we’re having a pirate party but have 40 kids and not sure if I can make a cake that big :)
    all the other details are delightful, I wish I had seen these pictures before I had ordered the pirate themed party plates and cups.

    I am trying to purchase some of the pirate decorations. I can’t find the cups or plates, are you sold out?
