The Purple Pirate Party: Anabelle turns Three!

About three months ago Sam asked Anabelle what she would like to do for her birthday party. Anabelle was adamant that it was to be a Purple Pirate Party, no princesses, no fairies and no teddy bear’s picnic, it was pirates or bust! (I’m pleased she picked pirates – I didn’t really fancy dressing up as a princess or fairy ;))

Anabelle was so excited about her party, every week she’d ask if this weekend was her party and everyone she met she asked if they were coming to her Purple Pirate Party, it was super cute! And finally the day arrived!

The weather was fitting for a pirate party, the sun came out early to defrost the yard and then the cloud and fog rolled in, fitting of any pirate crew slinking into port for mischief and mayhem.

Kids and adults were encouraged to come dressed as a pirate and the effort made was greatly appreciated!

We searched for buried treasure and sailed the high seas in our very own pirate ship! Captain Anabelle Joy had a blast with all her friends and family – it truly was an amazing day!

I’m so proud of Sam, she is one of the most creative people I know and this party’s success is all thanks to her. She made pirate bunting, pirate cupcakes, gingerbread pirates, and an amazing pirate treasure chest cake! The treasure hunt and pirate ship were amazing, thanks heaps to Dave, Dan and Tiff for helping us with the ship! It was a long time in the planning and it payed off for a wonderful Purple Pirate Party!

I can’t believe Anabelle is three already, it seems like yesterday I was holding her in my arms the day she was born. We love you Anabelle, are so proud of you and look forward to many more years of fun, happiness and joy!
