Classic Princess & Pirate ~ Real Party Feature!

Today's party feature comes to us all the way from the United States of America! Super gorgeous, this Classic Princess & Pirate party was styled and hosted by Tali from A Party Studio.

I love the gorgeous rose and blue colour scheme, especially the pretty pink carnations, one of my favourite flowers.  The choc coated strawberries are also really sweet and love the use of both a Princess Crown and Pirate ship on the printables.

Tali thanks for sharing your gorgeous party with us xx

Here's what Tali had to say about the details ...

My daughter wanted a princess party for her birthday but since she had a few boys on her guest list, we decided to make it a classic princess and pirate party. The colors she wanted were pink and more pink (of course) and she agreed that we could add blue and teal. We kept the look very simple- with a pretty crown to keep the princesses happy and a ship for the pirates. I really enjoyed designing the printables. 
When guests walked through the front door, they were able to pick out a pretty princess costume to wear with a wand and tiara, or a pirate eye patch. The guests loved dressing up and changing in to various dresses
For the dessert table, we had home made vanilla cake pops, vanilla cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, popcorn in cones, Hershey kisses, marshmallow and of course a pretty two tier chocolate and fudge cake and gold coins (pirate treasure).

We tried to keep the party food in keeping with this fun theme and we served: royal heart and butterfly fairy bread, caprese sword kabobs, catch of the day (goldfish), ships n dips, a fruit platter suitable for a royal princess. Of course, we also served pizza because that is a huge hit with pirates and princesses alike.
Since the children at the birthday party ranged in age between two and five, we decided to skip traditional party games. Instead we had a craft station (loads of foam stickers and star wands to decorate) and a glitter tattoo station. Everyone loved the glitter tattoos, even the adults.
