With the brand new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales movie coming out this summer, I’m guessing we’re going to see quite a few pirate inspired parties popping up all over. This pirate party guide has all of the pirate party ideas you could ever need – pirate party food, pirate party games, and even pirate party decorations! And if you really want to add more fun, make it a princess and pirate party with these princess party games!
Pirate Party Ideas
First off, before you get started with anything I recommend going back and watching the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, so much great inspiration in those movies! If you don’t have time for that, here’s the newest trailer for the most recent Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales movie with Johnny Depp returning as the infamous Jack Sparrow. It looks like it’s going to be great!
Pirate Party Ideas: Food
This one was hard to narrow down because honestly there are just so many great ideas out there including ones that really don’t take much creativity at all, but these are 10 of my favorite pirate food ideas!
Pirate Party Ideas: Decorations
This list includes a bunch of store-bought decorations that I think every pirate party needs as well as some very clever DIY pirate party decorations that I just think are awesome or are easy and high impact. Those are the best!
