Make sure to make your next adult party a fun pirate party for everyone! Not including the kids. However, that doesn’t mean the adults can dress up as pirates and act like kids for a while. When throwing your pirate-themed party, be sure to send invites to everyone, telling them this is a costume party, but if you forget, you can probably count on a few people coming in costumes by themselves.
For a pirate party, you can easily provide food and drinks. The pirates loved their beer! Food should be rich and hearty—lots of meats and cheeses. Maybe you could set up a charcuterie buffet and let everyone make their sandwiches for the event. Make sure you have plenty of sliced bread, as these pirate dudes of yours are sure to have an appetite to match their attire—order extra of everything.
Pirate-themed decorations are only appropriate for the event. You can hang red and black streamers, a skull, and crossbones and hand out eye patches and plastic hooks as party favors to the guests who happen to arrive without their pirate garb.
Entertainment can be a lot of pirate movies and if you don’t feel like watching a movie, try playing a CD with the soundtrack of the recent pirate movie, Curse of the Black Pearl.
Pirates also loved their gold, so you can set up a few poker and blackjack games to entertain the guests. If you want to keep the party civilized, use chocolate-covered coins instead of real money in your bets. That way, the winners will still get a special treat and, no one will throw a punch over lost money.
See if you can kick off a few rounds of classic sailor songs with the guests and get some real sing-a-round at the party. If not, don’t worry; get back to your good food, entertainment, and poker game!
