We celebrated my son’s fourth birthday last weekend with a big pirate party, per his request!  The pirate theme started from the beginning with the invitations, asking his friends to set sail on a pirate adventure.  The invitations are printed on high quality, heavy weight premium silk paper. We had lots of pirate decorations as well as a big candy bar set up filled with everything from chocolate gold coins, to ring pops, to gummy sharks and swedish fish.  I even set up a costume area where the kids could put on pirate hats, eye patches, pirate jewelry and mustaches!  It was so fun and everyone had a great time.  So in the pirate spirit, I wanted to carry the theme all the way through to the end, with the thank you cards.

Mixbook offers a huge selection of photo cards to chose from and I found one that was perfect for Tate’s pirate party.  I chose the High Seas Soiree Thank you cards for our guests.  The 5×7 card is the exact color scheme of the party – blue, red and black.  There is a soft white striped pattern across the back of the card giving it some depth and character.  The black and red pirate ship in the bottom right of the card has a skull and crossbones across it and was the perfect accent to the card.  I was able to completely personalize my card to make it exactly what I wanted!  The software to customize the card was so easy to use and I had created my card in minutes!  I added a picture of my son in a pirate hat as well as an “arr matey” text to the bottom center of the card.  The card originally said “Thank You” across the top but I was easily able to remove that text and add my own, “Thank ye, Matey!!”  The back of the card has a rich red background as well as a small strip of the white patterned background from the front of the card.  The small pirate ship on the back of the card adds a special touch.  There was enough space that I was able to write a personal note to each guest on the back of the thank you card.  The cards are printed on high quality, heavy weight premium silk paper and come with Mohawk premium white envelopes.  The papers are supplied from sustainable forests and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the Rainforest Alliance!  The High Seas Soiree Thank you cards printed on premium silk paper can be purchased for $56.70 for 30 cards!
