A Pirate Birthday Party

My son just turned one and I decided it would be fun to throw him a pirate-themed birthday. I lucked out and found some great things at our Thrift Store, Walmart, and a forever favorite, Dollar Tree.

Here is a picture of my Thrift Store finds. They inspired the madness that became a one-year-old’s pirate birthday party.

For the party, we had a treasure hunt and ate cake. My son is only one after all so we kept things short and sweet.
