Nerdy Photo Monday - Pirate Birthday Party

Pirate Party

Sometime's you just need to have a pirate party.

This summer we turned our backyard into a pirate tavern. We built a bar, we hung rigging, we put up dozens of lanterns. Inside, there was a treasure pile. We served rum punch, rum, meat pies, sausage on a stick, and lots of bread. We played sea shanties, and everyone had to come in costume. We even re-created the redhead pirate painting from the Pirates of the Caribbean (A Portrait of Things to Come by Marc Davis).

More photos of the party here.

We drank a lot of this:
Pineapple Rum Punch
1 28oz can pineapple juice
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
5 cups white rum

Mix ingredients in a large bowl or jug. Stir really well until the sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate overnight. Drink up me hearties!


  1. How did you make that portrait? I've been wanting to do something like this for a long time!
