Pretty Pink Pirate Party Prep

You Down with PPPPP? We are! We've been busy planning some Swashbuckling fun for Megan's Pink Pirate Party this Saturday. Here are a few sneak peeks.

I got the invites from Kellie, aka The Paperista. Her store on Etsy is a party planners playground. She designs your invite with matching thank you cards, favor tags, birthday banner & cupcake toppers and then emails you the .pdfs. You print everything out on your own computer. It was fast, easy, and so affordable! She also made me some iron-on transfers and personalized clue cards for our treasure hunt.

Of course, after printing out the invites, I had to pretty them up even more! I added some bling in the form of a rhinestone #6 on the ship's sail, and hot pink rhinestone port holes. Then I backed them with hot pink glitter scrapbook paper. I lined the envelopes with a black, velvet damask print and then calligraphied each girls address on the front hoping it looked like scripty, pirate map lettering. Megan slipped 2 silver pirate coins inside each envelope and then sealed them all shut. She was so happy to walk to the corner and drop them in the big mailbox all by herself!
Thank you Kellie! You totally float this Mama Pirate's boat. Thanks for dealing with all my special requests and making everything so cute, special, and personalized!

I'm presently working on a twirl skirt for the Birthday Pirate made out of these.

It's gonna go with this cute shirt we got at our Aunt Adrie's store, CC Roo. Megan saw it months ago and has asked about it weekly until we finally went and bought it yesterday! I added the rhinestone #6.

Our treasure hunt is going to lead the girls to this

And it's gonna be stuffed with all this (the gold coins are pink bubblegum!)
Don't you love my glitter skulls complete with pink tiaras?! If I were a Pink Pirate, I would totally look like that after I rotted away on a beach somewhere.

There are about a million other things in the works, but I'll finish with the party favors. Lisa of ElleBows and More and I have followed each other's blogs and tweets for awhile. I asked her if she would come up with a clip that was "pink and piratey" that Megan could give as a party favor. I gave her free license to create whatever she thought was cute (safe bet, as everything she touches is CUTE) and these are what she made!
She even packaged them all in little hot pink bags for me! (and made them super fast, even tho she was headed on vacation) You can find more awesome girlie hair pretties in ElleBows' Etsy Store. Hurry...she's giving away a free clip with purchase right now!

Yo Ho, Lisa. You are this Pirate Mama's first mate and will NEVER be made to walk the plank! I know these are going to be a hit. Thank You!

Lots still to accomplish between now and Saturday. Megan requested an only girls, "drop-off" party. Definitely signs this little Pirate is growing up! Can't wait to celebrate that and everything else I love about her.
