When I think of a fun invitation, a treasure map is the first thing that immediately enters my mind. So, a treasure map in a bottle seemed like a pretty cool delivery idea.
Thankfully, I had only set one on fire while burning the edges, but this rolled up complete with sand in bottle and the invites were out. Along with a bounce house (my husband and I have found that these are the way to go to get the most bang for your buck), we had a few games set and a real treasure hunt for their party favors set. Our back yard was now transformed into a boys pirate land.
All little pirates found the hidden treasure and went home with gold and gems, no one fell in the water from walking the plank and there were no injuries from sword fights. Until the next quest at sea!
