Get together with your mateys and crew to find the hidden pirate's treasure. You'll need to send out invitations to your treasure-hunting party. A pirate treasure hunt theme provides you with the opportunity to be creative with your invitations and wording. Clearly establish your party's theme by giving your prospective guests a taste of what's to come.
Purpose of the Party
Your invitation should state the purpose of the party, which you can tie into your pirate treasure hunting theme. One way to word the purpose of your party is to write, "Oh no! Jackie's birthday gifts were stolen by pirates! Join us for a treasure hunting party!" Or you could say, "Roger retired! Let's help him find his fortune."
Write invitations for a pirate treasure hunt in pirate lingo. Use words that were commonly spoken between pirates, such as "avast," "ahoy, "ye" and "savvy." For instance, when letting your guests know the time of the party you can write, "Ye must arrive at 4 p.m. or face the plank, savvy?" or "Ye buccaneers best not be late, or ye scallywags will become shark bait."
Themed parties might have special instructions for invitees. If your pirate treasure hunt party requires guests to do or bring anything, such as wear a pirate's costume or bring a pillowcase to be used as a treasure sack, specify so on the invitation. For a part for adults, you could write "Yo ho ho and bring one bottle of rum."
To conclude your pirate-themed invitation, and help set the ambiance of the party, give a last warning at the bottom of your invitation in good fun. You could write "Beware, young buccaneers, there be no turning back once ye arrive."
