Teens can have a great time becoming a pirate and all the creative party theme ideas that go with it. Whether it's for summer party ideas, sweet sixteen party ideas, or any teen birthday party ideas, this one is at the top of our list!
Let's talk about what we need to inspire our guests to be the best pirate they can be!
Pirate party invitation ideas should be creative and fun. We like party theme inspired invitations that focus on boats, water, gold teeth, parrots, message in the bottle...you get the idea!
And if you really want to get into the spirit, you can send a couple of pirate terms for them to learn! Check out
Talk Like A Pirate
and include a few of your favorite terms for your guests to learn. They also have some great pirate birthday party ideas for some really fun games and ideas to add to your party!
When your guests enter your party you want them to get right into being a pirate, so start them off with some pirate speak!
"Ahoy! Greetin's an' fair winds ahead!"
Then ask them to fill out a name-tag with their pirate name on it and their real name in the lower corner. All the guests should be called by their "pirate name".
Party decorations set the scene for the party and add so much to the party theme ideas. You don't have to go overboard (no pun intended!), but you do want the atmosphere to be all about pirates. Nautical items are always a great idea and do a great job of setting the scene!
We like to have fun decorations like the STANDUPS of Jack Sparrow, Will Turner, and Elizabeth Swann. Once everyone has arrived, you can place them around the room. We also like eye patches, mugs, gold teeth, and pirate flags. Anything that says pirates, is a good decoration and party favor.
Pirate Party Food
You probably don't want to eat what pirates really ate, but we have some great ideas for things they might have enjoyed! When we think pirate food we think finger foods. After all, pirates don't have the best manners!
Don't worry, you will like all of it. Here are some favorite pirate-party-ideas for easy food for parties:
You can choose things like chocolate coins, bubble gum cigars and cigarettes, bottle caps, rock candy, and whatever other types of candies that fit the theme.
Pirate Games & Activities
Finding party game ideas for teens can be tough, and the Pirates of the Caribbean theme can bring on some challenges. But the site
Talk Like a Pirate
has some great activities for teens! They have a great pirate-party-ideas like pirate personality test, pirate name generators for those guests who didn't come up with one they were happy with, pirate songs, pirate stuff for junior pirates and so much more! You have to visit their site and see all the fun stuff they have!
We love scavenger hunts too...or in the case of the pirate party, we call it a treasure hunt. We love the e-book Pirate Treasure Hunt game, it will make organizing your own treasure hunt a piece of cake. And it's for all ages too.
