Busier Than a One-Legged Pirate in a Butt Kicking Contest!

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Today is my family's annual Pirate Party.  It's a little whacko around my house, before everyone arrives. I always love the creativity, everyone brings to the event.  This year's theme is "Pirates Caribe."

These little crabs are attending.  They are but a small number of the total lurking behind the shadows.

They're fairly simple to create.  Twizzlers Red Vines for the legs. The eyes are available through Wilton, at many craft stores which stock cake decorating supplies.  The sandy beach is crushed graham crackers!

Originally we planned on having the pirate party outside, but inclimate weather was predicted.  We had dinner inside, but still enjoyed the fire and the treasure hunt outside.

Myrl, 

 

I think you son is a natural for being a pirate. He definitely looks the part.. All of your guests and family look good in the pictures..

Good Morning Myrl - What a fun post to read and drool for too!

I wish I grew up with a family like yours! Talk about entertaining and making memories. The only crabs invited are the cupcakes and there would be no evidence of any crabs after the party was over. 

I just love your creativity Myrl!!!
