After selecting this theme for your party, choose a slogan to use in your invitations and in tying in decorations and personalized favors for your pirate theme. Find the perfect slogan for your party by trying one of the following, or by thinking of one that suits your swashbuckler.
• “Shiver Me Timbers…Jacob is 5!”
• “Yo Ho, Yo Ho…A Pirate Party for Me!”
• “Patrick’s Peg Leg Party!”
• “Buccaneer Bash!”
• “Ship Ahoy Matey…Join us for Swashbuckling Fun!”
Send your invitations out 3-4 weeks before the party. Choose one of the following invitations to let your young guests know that they can expect lots of mayhem and adventure:
The Pirate Party Tableware Ensemble contains an invite that is perfect for this theme. Address each invite to “Captain Wilder” (guest’s last name).
As an alternative, send a message in a bottle from the high seas! Roll the invitation up, and tie it with a small piece of green curling ribbon or raffia (seaweed). Add the invite to an empty water bottle (label removed). Add about 4 tablespoons of sand to each bottle, and a few small seashells. One shell necklace can be cut apart, and will provide enough shells for about 10-12 invites. “Shiver me timbers and bless my soul, we need you to party…Max is 5 years old!” or “Chase needs your help to swab the Poop Deck at…” Hand deliver the bottles or pay extra postage to send them through the mail.
