I had a friend dig up these pictures from a party we did 5 or 6 years ago (excuse the poor quality) so that I could share them with someone that was throwing a pirate party. I decided to share them here as well because these centerpieces are one of my favorite ideas.
The centerpieces are simple with great visual impact. All you need to do is take black PVC or spray paint white PVC and make your mast (a simple cross design). Add some tattered fabric for your sail and tie it all off with some rope. The final touch a pirate flag centered on top. The whole thing is so sea worthy simple!
We used rental tables and tablecloths with holes in the center normally used for umbrellas. To add some more piratey goodness to the table we placed sand around the mast and added shells, candles and wooden treasure chests full of gold and jewels.
Ye best be thinking about these tables me hardie for yer next pirate party!
