If you are planning a party for your little one, the first thing you try to figure out is what theme he/she might enjoy.

Once you figure out the theme, there is SO much to do! Table settings, food, serving stuff, decorations, cake, etc. etc. It can be really overwhelming..Especially if  you want to do something even remotely original.

Enter…Pinterest. This site has become the New GO-TO for ALLLLL things party planning. Say you are doing a Pirate Theme. Just put in “Pirate Birthday Party” and you will be greeted with a bevy of creative, original, and often simple ideas to make your party pop! From original snack ideas, kids costumes, party favors, home and table decorations, and the cake. The resources go on and on!

Here are some examples from Pinterest that I got for my daughter’s Captain Hook Party we are doing in a month and a half:
