To finish my entertaining party series for autumn, one more themed celebration that I created was Halloween, however, my take on it of course varied slightly from the conventional. If you noticed with both of my themes, including this one, I decided to make it family-friendly since many of my friends have children – this [theme], too is adaptable to make it as adult-friendly or simplified as you so choose.

With this Halloween pirate theme, there are a vast amount of ways to take a concept like this; one could go entirely spooky, horror, fun, or a little bit in-between as I did. To be honest, I am not keen on horror so I opted for a fun and tad spooky direction, more on the former.  


Our voyage starts with an abundance of activities, some of which I’ve already prepared for you.  


I put together a pirate cupcake stand but used it as a ship centrepiece, then dramatically decorated the area with laces, fishnets, and white poly blended batting for cobwebs. I created the maps using wooden dowels and used gold leafing for the maps, which contributed favourably to the themed aesthetic for the pirate’s gold booty.

DIYs, Activities & Takeaways 

I used one of my old DIY gilded boxes that I made from cardboard for the treasure chest, then added home decor plates that are usually reserved for interior design samples. 

Create a pirate’s word bucket with old sayings and phrases — ‘Ahoy, Matey, and Avast Ye, or Chantey,’ and more — said during the thrillingly ancient days of pirates. With my DIY pirate word bucket, it was good fun to be able to pick words and phrases to add a little history to the theme, with hand-written messages on the back of each one. Add jute twine to a bucket or cup and place the paper message cards inside. 


Although, if you do need a clap of thunder, otherwise known as a strong libation of choice, I’d recommend chilled black tea with cardamom milk, or a shot of whiskey if that’s your preference. I cannot have you three sheets to the wind, because I’ll need you awake and on the lookout, ready to set sail. Make certain to take a map for reference and guidance to find the treasure. *Tip: These DIY scroll maps also work well as place settings, just personalise each one with the guest's name. 


We have provisions! It's snacks galore, although you’re likely to tuck into a few rounds of biscuits or fish tins, these DIY treats will help. 


I hope you enjoyed this theme, it’s always enchanting to take the imagination to new heights.
