A castle party is a great way to take that Princess Party or Knight Party to the next level.
Anytime you are planning a birthday party with a royal theme you can incorporate these ideas!
Add some magic to your party. Dress up as Merlin and do some magic tricks.Announce each guest as they arrive and throughout the party as "Knight," “Prince” or “Princess”.If serving a meal, serve it castle-style! Eat with your hands! If you've ever been to a novelty medieval restaurant, this is what they do there. It is a lot of fun for everyone, albeit messy!Royal Dancing...Since the Royal Ball is the highlight of the year, so practice your dancing. Perhaps a game of freeze dance is in order!Juggling is a necessary skill for any good Court Jester. Have a quick juggling lesson and let the kids try their hand at it. Juggling balls could even be the party favor!Speaking of the Court Jester, a Jester Contest can be really fun. Think of it as a crazy talent show. Have everyone (or at least everyone who wants to!) take a turn telling jokes or doing funny skits to determine the "Best Jester". Provide supplies so that everyone can build their own castle. Ideas include legos, or you can get creative and use recycled items like boxes, paper towel rolls, etc. How about building a giant castle? Save up cardboard boxes and have kids stack them to create a great castle fort to play in. You can also build it ahead of time and secure the boxes in place with duct tape. Don't forget a cute Castle Cake. This is a must! You can also add any of the ideas from these pages: Princess Party Ideas and Knight Party Ideas. Choose your favorite ideas to use at your birthday party.
