Creative Location for Pirate Party
I have a 5 year old who wants a pirate party. I love doing the decorating, games, cake, etc., but our house is getting a bit small for hosting. I've checked into doing it at locations such as Bethany Lakes clubhouse or the Natatorium, but the clubhouse is a bit expensive for my taste, and the Natatorium seems a bit hectic for a 5 year old party. Basically I'm looking for something that would somehow flow with the pirate them, if possible, but at the very least I need a large room that isn't very costly. Thanks for your help.

Have you thought of Joe's Crab Shack? Great Pirate theme, loud with great music, childrens menu, and cute dessert: paint a crab - it's rice crispie treat that looks like a crab. They also have a play area. They do book parties there. There locations are Fossil Creek, Grapevine and Arlington. To book group parties - call: (877) 823-5637

This sounds weird but you should call Cabela's just off of 35w in the Keller area. To rent the room is only $50.00 and the kids get tokens for the target shooting range, (like a carnival game)fish food for the indoor river and a scavenger hunt around the store. Sounds like that would fit well with a pirate theme. You can decorate the room, bring your own food and drinks or order pizza etc. from the restaurant. We had my sons first birthday there and it was great!

Have a scavenger hunt!
Use little pirate chest for the booty!
You can make hats for the kids.
And eye patches.
I know you cant always depend on the weather but outside is fun.

I don't know if you were planning for indoors or outdoors but for an outdoor party you could have it at a park. Bear Creek Park in Keller has a playground that is designed like a ship! That would be fun. Or one of the large wooden type playgrounds would be neat too....easy to pretend you are on a pirate ship. The one in Colleyville on Brandson comes to mind but I can't remember the name of the park. It is off of Glade.
Hope this helps! Have a fun party!

As a single mom on a small bugdet I have either had parties in my apartment, (I moved furniture and made room) or have had friends generously allow me to have the party at their larger home. Good luck!

I know this might not be the suggestion you were looking for but it might be a way to keep the kids outside. If you have access to a pick up truck or a flat bed trailer have a go get a yard or two of sand. If you have it delivered in yard, bury treasure in it. That should keep the kids busy in the yard and free up extra space in the house. Then when you are done you can level out the spots in your yard with the sand.

A friend of mine did a pirate party at Long John Silver's.

Check out the McDonald's at 423 and Eldorado in Little Elm/Frisco. They have an awesome pirate theme. My pirate-loving 4 year old LOVED it. I'm sure they have something cool for parties.
