Luke’s Pirate Party

Luke's fifth birthday party proved to be quite the event. He has only had relatively small parties up until this year, so for this one we let him invite a big group of friends for a pirate-themed party at a local pizza place. I had so much fun coming up with the invitations:

I was originally going to send actual paper invites, but time got tight so I ended up dropping the image into an evite. I found the images here and also used them to make iron-on transfers for Luke and Maggie's shirts:

and used them to make goody bag tags too.

I just recently came across this blog with some wonderful party ideas — wish I had found it before planning this party, but I've definitely bookmarked it for future ideas.
