My hubby and I are expecting a baby boy soon and we are doing his room in a pirate theme. I need ideas for not to scary kinda silly kiddy pirate stuff. i was thinking of light blue skull and cross bones flag. It is for a baby and a shower so i dont want anything to harsh.. I know I want to put ahoy its a boy on the front of the invitations but not sure what kinda picture or clip art to use. any ideas!!
Kind of a hippy.

"Ahoy! It's A Boy!" is the cutest thing!  Cheesy I think cartoony pirate stuff would be best. (I'm trying to find a good example on Google images, but I'm not finding anything...) If you want, I could draw and scan (and maybe touch up/color in Photoshop) a cute cartoony skull-and-crossbones.

What kind of ideas are you looking for? Things that your shower guests could make at the baby shower?

LOOKING FOR A PERSONAL SWAP: I'm hoping for dinosaur-themed Xmas crackers, or other dinosaur Xmas items. I can make a Jayne Cobb hat, or many other things!

Are you throwing your own shower?
I love the pirate theme, so very cute! 
I think you definitely need to use these guys http://www.orientaltrading.com/application?namespace=browse&origin=catalogProducts.jsp&event=link.itemDetails&demandPrefix=12&sku=16/733&mode=Searching&erec=8&sp=true&Ntx=mode%252bmatchallpartial&N=377442&Ntk=all&sd=PIRATE+RUBBER+DUCKYS

I have also seen little Jolly Roger soft shoes (like Robeez).  You'd have to get those as well.

Yeah... I'm confused too. Hopefully a good friend or family member will throw the shower for you. 

This is an awesome theme.  Here is a cute thing I saw on a japanese site:
http://www.chocoa.jp/D00991.shtml  They didn't have anything else that was baby/pirate themed. 
Anchors are piratey too.

hey, can you order stuff from that website, since it's not in English, or any language except Huh? Huh?   Cheesy

Isuppose you could order form them if you were really determined.  I just have it marked as cuteness inspiration.

this is the coolest idea!

for clipart on the invites, you could use a parrot, an anchor, some sort of desert-island looking picture, a picture of a baby in a pirate hat, a sword, a pirate ship... uh.  that's all i can think of for now, but i hope that helps if only a little!

i care about you a homemade oven mitt's worth.

here's something else I came across for you! http://www.roomandboard.com/rnb/coll.do?coll=RB3553&dept=RB1712 If you continue with this theme by the time he is in a big kid bed.
When are you due, anyway?
