The Search for the Perfect Baby Shower Gift …

This month we seem to be on the baby shower circuit. We spent the first half of the week, without success mind you, searching for the perfect baby girl outfits and newborn gifts to pair with our current favorite baby shower gift, a Sophie the Giraffe Teeether. And then we had an ah ha moment >> Gymboree now has new line of adorable newborn gifts! And of course, it is chock full of the cutest giraffe theme onesies, burpies, hooded towels, loveys, bibs, socks, and so much more. Whenever we put together baby shower gifts we love to combine the practical (i.e. teether) with the adorable (i.e. hooded towel) and can never resist throwing in a pair of socks or little hat or onesie.

Pirate Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

Let Party Idea {Pros} walk you through every step of your child’s pirate birthday party including pirate party invitations,  decor, food ideas,  pirate fun and games and even pirate costumes for children.

Party Idea Pros has an “old fashion” approach to kids’ parties.  We say keep them small, keep them short, and keep them simple.  We love hula hoops, beach balls,, crayons, washable markers, glue sticks, and musical instruments.  Generally, the number of guest should equal the age of the birthday child, but don’t obsess if you are a few over or under — it is not worth the hurt feelings for an extra child or even two.   Never, ever deliver invitations at school, unless every single child is invited!!!!!   Save money – skip the jumpies and the pony rides.

Many of the products here also work for pirate theme baby showers!

For a great kids pirate theme party there are only a few essentials:

  • A great invitation — even before the party begins invitations create a sense of anticipation.  Think of all the time your own child spends  looking at those invitations on your refrigerator.
  • A toy treasure chest or pirate ship, and gold coins for  your centerpiece or simply use the centerpieces provided in the pirate party kits – you can always make them a little less commercial by adding balloons and some of your own pirate accessories.
  • Four  activities:  a “doing” activity such as a home “treasure hunt” a craft activity such as  decorating a treasure chest, and a game activity  like, “capture the pirate flag” or “pirate tug of war”,  and to end the party you absolutely must break the pirate ship pinata.  As the kids get older, the same activities work just make them more complex, and add a competitive/team component.
