Elliott decided he wanted to have a pirate party when he turned 3. There was tons of pirate stuff at the party store so we were good to go with the plan. There are a million pictures to share and they really do tell the whole story of the party so, quite uncharacteristically, I will not be very wordy in this post.
THE BIRTHDAY BOY
The party was at 10:00 so we had a brunch, including a pick-your-own topping toast and English muffin bar.
I found a picture of a treasure chest cake. Directions were not included, so I just made up my own. It's not exactly what I wanted (I tried to make the opening bigger between the layers but it gradually sank and closed over night) but it was a good effort and tasted delicious.

And finally, the birthday boy Elliott
It was a great party from beginning to end. We are so lucky to have family and friends who will play the part of pirate to amuse our (definitely no longer a baby and not even really a toddler) son.
Now that he's 3 I definitely have to change the title of the blog.
