pirate party photo props

I’m just in LOVE with this picture. First because it’s my baby boy, but also because it’s just so fun! As I mentioned in my post about my skull cap pirate sucker favors last week, I styled a pirate party (two collections in the shoppe, pirate ship and pirate skull) a few months back (and hosted a real party, still to come!) and Angie Arthur Photography photographed the day.

And Angie lent me her kiddos as models. This picture doesn’t even begin to show how fun they all were… brothers! Can’t you tell?!

The printable photo op collection includes skull caps (4 patterns) in children and adults sizes… because we want to be in the pictures too right! Three conversation bubbles, which you can either order with our phrases or personalized with your own phrases, like “Happy Birthday Captain Jack!” Just attach them to wooden dowels from your local craft store or hardware store and you’re ready to go!

For our “photo booth” I covered a canvas with red and white stripe fabric, the same I used to make the skull cap pirate sucker favors, and then hung my pirate banner (also available with the printable collections) on twine from the hardware store.

And here’s my other itty! He’s a ham! {proud momma smile}

Visit the entire collection in the shoppe, pirate ship and pirate skull. And as always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!

    I love the first photo too. You son is so cute. What fun party ideas! Did you make the skull cap that your little guy is wearing in the first photo? It’s very cool!
