Aaarrgghh it’s pirate party time!
Hours of Fun were booked in for Olga’s 5th birthday party celebrating in pirate fashion with a chocolate workshop. I was super excited about the chocolate workshop and couldn’t wait to make pirate lollies with the birthday girl and her friends; we were also going to decorate pirate cookies.
The party kicked off with some fantastic badge making, followed by lots of games and fun. Then it was workshop time and we all sat down at the chocolate table with aprons on and sleeves rolled up ready to get messy. We used PME chocolate melting pots for the chocolate which I am officially in love with as they are amazing, I just need to invest in some more of them now! We made the lollies then popped them to one side to set and some amazing cookies were created. We had pirate shapes including a ship, a pirate and skull and cross bones.
The children seemed to really enjoy themselves and their creations were amazing. After washing all the chocolate off their faces, arms and hands it was time for more games and a treasure hunt, then we all sat down for some food and drink – well deserved after all the pirate fun.
The birthday girl helped to give out the party boxes full of pirate treats included a special Hours of Fun make you own pompom pirate kit.
The party was held at the Vagabond Lawn Tennis club which was again a fantastic venue, very accommodating and a brilliant sized room for the party and workshop.
We hope Olga had a swashbuckling time.
Massive thanks to my helpers for the day – Jo, Charlie and my Mum with Kev and my Dad helping to set up.
