Shern loves Disney's Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and so this party's theme was Pirate inspired. This is a friendly pirate theme, with no skulls and no death-y images. Very suitable for kids of all ages. :)
Most of the deco ideas I got from my Pinterest board. I am a Pinterest addict. It gives me so much inspirations and ideas.
These were the digital invites and menu choice done by Josie.
Love the invites which even featured Tick-Tock the Crocodile. Haha.
This was the Desert Table. Beautiful or not? Love you, Josie.
I loved the banners done by Josie. Red and blue stripes which was the theme colour. And I super loved the overall table arrangement.This sailing ship was so pirate-y looking, and I requested for a number 4 to show that this was Shern's 4th Birthday.
This was Shern's one-of-a-kind Jake and the Neverland Pirate 4th Birthday Cake that I decorated. Read all about it here.
My all-time favourite Fruit Tarts that I never failed to order, arranged on my 3-tier cake stand.
Delicious Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frostings by Oritta Cakehouse on Josie's beautiful 3-tier cake stand.
Topping these cupcakes were personalized Cupcake Toppers which reads 'YIU-SHERN TURNS 4' and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Captain SHERN'!
This was a tray of gourmet mashmallows by my cousin Huey & Wah. We took the vanilla and the chocolate flavour, both were Shern's favourites. Huey was so nice to arrange it in an anchor-shaped to go with the theme! :)
Next on, the Treasure Loot table near the entrance.
There was a Treasure Chest on the right, a tray of Eye-Patches beside it and mini paper boats all over the table.
The Treasure Chest was filled with Gold Doubloons (chocolate coins) for the kids.
These Money-Bags acted as Party Favours for the kids. There was an Anchor Tag with an 'S' tied to the Money Bags.
This was the tray of Paper Eye-Patches tied with rubber strings. This was supposedly for all guests, but I think if all guests wore that, we would have had a 'head bang' session. I tell you, being one-eyed even for 5 minutes made me kinda dizzy. It makes me thankful I have both my eyes. Lol.
And these Kraft Paper Boats were Thank You Favours for the guests.
The Browned Ones filled with Polo Mints were for the adults. (But I think most were grabbed by kids!)
And these Coloured Paper Boats filled with Gold Doubloons were for the kids.
There was even a Mini Photo Booth area for those who wished to strike a pose.
There were props such as Eye Patches, Pirate Hat, Moustaches, Bandannas and Sashes, and even Swords!
There was the Colouring Corner, which I printed out some Jake and the Neverland Pirates Activity Pages, and also some Colouring Pages.
The kids had a blast there floating all the boats (That was where all the Thank You Favours went to!)
Ok, I will talk more on the birthday party itself, full of pictures of people in the next post Part 2: The Party! Stay tuned....
