Kids Pirate Party

Pirate Party Ideas & Decorations

Ideas for a jolly good kids pirate party!

  • For tablecothes - use black tablecloths and lay fish nets over the tablecloths.
  • Your centerpiece can be as simple as a pirate hat with balloons.
  • Decorate the party area with black and silver and gold balloons.
  • Scatter gold chocolate coins and plastic jewels on the tables.
  • Hang pirate flags on the walls.
  • If you have any old trunks use them as decoration at your Pirate Party. Put them in the party area and hang plastic jewelry out of them and call it stolen treasure. Or purchase a treasurer chest for the party.
  • String rope and fishing nets across the ceiling and around the party area.
  • Hang up a few skeletons on the wall or from the ceiling.
  • Give each child a pirate bandana & eye patch when they arrive.
