With three daughters, there is going to be TONS of stuff to fight about over the years; I don't want them to look back and pictures and decided I planned better birthday parties for so-and-so and whatnot... SO my oldests birthday for each age sort of sets the tone.
1st - party at the house (duckie, cupcake, duckie)
2nd - party at the park (Minnie Mouse, Car)
3rd - party at the house, with a bounce house (strawberry shortcake, Pirate)
4th - party at the park (Bike)
5th - party at the house (candyland) (no bounce house, although she expected one because my other daughter had just had her 3rd "bounce house at the house" party)
I know I can't keep this up forever, but at least I'm trying!
Anyway, so for Jillie's 3rd birthday party we went with a Girly Pirate themed party.
Bounce House - fun for all ages...
... mommies and daddies included
Dig for Pirate Treasure - Wouldn't you believe that probably the MOST POPULAR thing at this party was the cheapest thing? Don't get me wrong, the kids LOVED the bounce house, but there was ALWAYS a line for the treasure hunt.

This one is pretty self explanatory.
I love a good favor that goes along with the party theme.
Bag Filled with a pirate hat, a few chocolate coins, and a small plastic maze do-dad that I found at Oriental Trading... and probably a sucker or two (I'm writing this a year late... so I honestly don't know what was in there)
instructions found here) - Super easy and huge hit! We gave them out at the end.
