Jake and the Neverland Pirates


Yo Ho Mateys!  If you have an aspiring pirate in your family then he/she is sure to love the Disney show Jake and the Never Land Pirates.  What better way to celebrate your child's birthday then with a pirate adventure.  Here are some of our favorite ideas when throwing a Jake pirate party!

Party Ideas & Decorations

1) Start your decorating by using some of the 100's of Jake and the Never Land Pirates party supplies available.

2) When your guests arrive have them pick a Pirate name!


3) Add your own style by adding some nautical and pirate items.  Hang anchors from the ceiling instead of traditional streamers, serve snacks out of small treasure chests and decorate tables with gold coins (gold doubloons) instead of confetti.

4) Use a treasure map as a wall decoration.

5) In place of traditional party hats give guests pirate hats.  

6) Use bandannas in place of napkins.

7) Give your pinata a pirate theme by adding treasure.  Use plastic jewelry (such as beaded necklaces and rings) along with candy jewelry.
