A while back I decorated my friend’s daughter’s sweet 16 birthday party. The theme was Pirates and although I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures, here are a few.
Center pieces: I got the candle holders from the DI (thrift store) @ .50 each. The candles I bough at the DI as well for .25 each and spray painted them with gold glitter. The bead necklaces and coins you can get from the dollar store or any party place for very cheap.
Favors: I trimmed pieces of black cardstock paper with scrapbook scissors. Glued them to the top of a brown lunch bag. Fold the top forward. Make two holes with hole punch and tighten with twine.
Food table decor. Bought this candle holder at the DI, too
Props and backdrop for pictures of the guests: The storage chest trunk is actually from my daughter’s French inspired room. I got it at a yard a long time ago for FREE! As far as the burlap bags, we filled those with old clothes to give them the sense of fullness. I think, by now you already know, that I own several of those after one of those great finds at the thrift store and little by little I’ve also been turning them into these or these and even a few wreaths, etc.
In between dancing, limbo games and eating some delicious foods, kids, teens and adults we ALL had a blast!
