Meanwhile, check out our other first-birthday party ideas here.
1. Plain sailing.
These are definitely some of the scrummiest ships that we have ever laid eyes on. The sails can be crafted from a kebab stick and two small pieces of card.
2. Cannon cheese balls.
Think creatively about what your usual party grub could be in the pirate world. For example, cheese balls = cannon balls, chocolate coins = treasure and carrot sticks = wooden legs!
Alternatively, decorate your food to look like something pirate-y, just like these cute dipped marshmallows.
4. A golden idea.
Make small signs from coloured card, or create your design digitally and print out.
5. The lighter option.
Keep your health-conscious guests happy by adding some nutritious variety to your party spread. Melon slices make fantastic boats…
6. Swashbuckling snacks.
…And, carrots can be made into swashbuckling swords with a bit of thinking outside of the box.
7. Cheesy pirate heads.
A savoury alternative to number three. Grab some mini cheeses and you’re already halfway to making some delicious shipmate-friendly food.
8. Crossaint crustaceans.
Just be sure to remove any small items before little mouths take a bite!
9. Pieces of Eight.
Edible gold spray paint can be used to create these yummy treasures.
10. Tasty teeth.
Serve popcorn as a light snack, especially if a movie marathon is among your plans for the day. Pirates of the Carribean, anyone?
11. Bananas in bandanas.
Bananas are great for slow-release energy. Serve them up so you don’t have to worry about any E number-induced shinanigans.
