St. Patrick's Day is approaching and green, clovers and gold will be coming along with it. Think green, luck, rainbows, leprechaun, four leaf clovers and gold. All the traditional items you think about when St. Patrick's Day rolls around. Well, incorporate these items into a party theme that provides something unique this year for your party, and host a treasure hunt. Wedding and Party Network is here to help you create a lucky treasure hunt your guests will enjoy. It's a great idea, just have your guests follow the rainbow.
Treasure Hunt Clues
- Four Leaf Clover – Find me 4 some luck.
- Leprechauns – Fiddly, diddly, quickly catch me.
- Pot Of Gold – You would LOVE to find me at the end of a rainbow.
- Rainbows – Bright & colorful, but only when it rains.
- Blarney Stone – Kiss me & maybe you'll receive some luck.
- Irish Flag – Square with all the colors of Ireland
- Top Hat – Black with a hint of gold.
- Any Green Items
Use these clues to help point your guests in the right direction. Place small items that are sort of hidden for them to find, once they find it; they will be led to the next item. At the end of the treasure hunt, create a giant rainbow to let them know they are at the end. Place a big pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, just like you hear every St. Patrick's Day. This giant pot of gold will be the winning prize. You could easily make this yourself, just grab a bucket or basket and spray paint it black. Fill it up with chocolate gold coins, or real ones and green items.
Your guests will truly have a ball with this St. Patty's Day treasure hunt. It has to be the first thing to do, since guests will arrive full of anticipation. Doing it first also allows for your guests to have something exciting to talk about afterward over your delicious green party food. It fits the theme and is something unique. Plus, your guests will be able to get out of the house from those winter months if it's a nice day out. This party will be a hit!
After the treasure hunt, your guests may have worked up a hungry stomach. If you run around outside for the hunt, stick with a soup to warm your guests up. Possibly a butternut squash soup. This shows off a hint of gold and can be your pot of gold soup. This recipe is just a fun way to stick with the theme. Stick with traditional Irish food, like corned beef, cabbage or shepherds pie.
You may want to stick with traditional appetizers. One way for these party foods to fit the theme is to die them green and gold. All it takes is a bit of food coloring and you'll have some St. Patrick's Day party food.
For dessert, stick with rainbow and green cupcakes. Place a gold coin, shamrock or gold coin on top of the cupcake for a little extra touch. Visit your local bakery to have them create you a pot of gold party cake. Wouldn't this be so fun at this party? Have them create a pot filled with gold coins, a rainbow over top and a leprechaun by the pot of gold.
If you haven't a clue on what to serve or what type of desserts you'll need, talk with your local caterer and your local baker. They would be glad to help you in throwing a successful party!
For this St. Patrick's Day Party, all you'll need is the treasure hunt and some delicious food. These will be the two elements to make your party a big hit! Don't forget to wear your green and follow the rainbow to that big pot of gold!
