Birthday Food

Clearly, I've been slacking as a blogger. :) Anyway, here are some pictures of the food:
The table was simply decorated with pirate flags, gold coins, and crystal jewels. The food was kid-friendly, snacky food for our afternoon party. Each item was labeled with a fun pirate sign and name.

Another view of the table.

I found a great link to make these cute little pirate flags which I used to decorate the fruit and cheese platters.

This was my favorite part - the cupcakes. I thought about doing a larger cake but decided on the single serving, easy cupcakes. I got the idea to use brown sugar as sand from Andrew's cousin (she threw a pirate party for her son and gave me great ideas and links!). I used chocolate gold coins, candy necklaces, and miniature gummy bears as the pirate booty in the sand. I found printable pirate stickers that I printed on cardstock and then layered with the colored card stock and attached to the sucker sticks for the cupcake toppers.

One more close up view. :) The boys were thrilled!
