Yes, I am back! Back from swimming in the Atlantic, back from the land of sun and sand. Le sigh. Even though we have had unseasonally warm temperatures here in Ontario, I do miss the ocean so very much. Especially now that the cold has creeped in again. I have been adjusting to not swimming everyday and keeping busy-busy behind the scenes since I got home. Even though it’s been quiet here, I have been posting over on my Facebook page over the past week, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, get on over there and ‘Like” it to catch that action!
Just before I left for March Break, my friend Magdalena from Oh So Chic Celebrations Event Design and Styling asked if I could put together a pirate theme for her. So of course I said yes! I mean her work is amazing! I knew that if I created something, in her hands, it would look incredible. The pirate theme has been on my list of designs forever and this was the perfect chance to make it happen.
I am dying to see and share pictures of her event, dying I tell you! But I do have a few pictures of this new collection which just sailed into my Etsy shop this morning!
Party circles and party flags. I am loving these party flags, perfect for food and cupcakes.
But wait till you get a look at the just-for-this-collection, mast style party flags. They are awesome!
Seriously awesome, yes?! You can turn any treat into a pirate ship with these party flags, mini treat cups full of carrots or cupcakes. Or make a simple little boat out of construction paper like I did, glue or staple the ends close, place a weighted tealight holder in the bottom and fill with treats. Can you imagine a table full of pirate ships filled with sweet booty for your pirates to fill loot bags? I can!
Need some toppers for those loot bags? Those are included in the set as well.
The full Pirate Collection is available in my Etsy shop and it includes Party Circles, Bunting, Bottle Wrappers, Tent Cards, Favor Tags, Loot Bag Toppers, Party Flags, Mast-Style Party Flags (for ye boats filled with eats and treats) and Scrapbooking Papers.
I’m off me hearties! Can you tell it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day around here?
