|4 years and 364 days old on the day of her party.|
This is the exact same spot that my mom hosted my 5th birthday party almost 30 years ago.
Man, I feel old.
Linna wanted to do a treasure hunt, so we decided to go with a pirate themed party.
Although the weather was a little warm, it didn't rain, storm, or snow... So I can't complain.
I couldn't have pulled this party off without the help of my parents, husband, and in-laws.
THANK YOU to everyone who came out to celebrate Linna's 5th birthday!
Here are photos and video from Sunday, August 7th...
|One of the party games: "Pin the Patch on the Pirate". I was so proud of my DIY pirate head.|
|We made treasure chests for the treasure hunt out of styrofoam coolers from Fleet Farm and filled them with ice and freezies.|
|Lots of DIY decor.|
|Linna and her melting pirate photo-cake from Lunds & Byerlys. So yummy!|
|"Crabwiches" filled with Linna's Memaw and PeePaw's chicken salad. Delicious!|
|Fruit Swords made by my Mom ("Nana").|
|Veggie Swords made by my Mom ("Nana").|
|Food, drinks, and pirate name-badge table.|
|My mom made "sea water" punch.|
|Papa Saigh and I made these chalkboard serving-trays that we also used as party signs.|
|My Father-In-Law ("PeePaw") made this "What's Your Pirate Name" sign for the party.|
We had name-badges for everyone to write their pirate name on. Fun "ice-breaker"!
|Goodie-bag loot from my Dad ("Bompa").|
|I found this gold glitter 5 at JoAnn Fabrics & Craft Stores, and then added|
a little DIY pirate cap and patch.

|The treasure dig was a hit. We filled the sandbox with loot from Party City.|
