A few years ago we attended a Medieval or Middle Ages Theme Party that was so well thought out in all the décor and details, I just had to share it!
Party Invitations:Use a mailing tube to send a scroll that lists party details (Hear ye hear ye…)
Party Decorations: Hang up banners of coats of arms everywhereTransform your party space into a castleIf having a party in your home, remove your regular knick-knacks and use candlelight and greenery for décorServe food and drink from pewter colored partyware and goblets
Easy Party Food:
Whatever you decide to serve, do it the "old-fashioned" way - let everyone eat with their hands! Some fun ideas might be Chicken Wings or meats and cheeses.
A Renaissance Music CD would be fun for music to start the party with, and then after your guests arrive move the music toward regular party music – tunes you and your friends will love. These are often songs that you would have listened to as a teenager or in college. Everyone enjoys listening to music that they are familiar with!
Party Activities: Encourage guests to come in costume if they wishFor ladies, provide cone shaped hats (with the scarf trailing from the point…like in fairytales – they really did wear those sorts of things…)For men, provide simple tunics with knightly emblems to slip on over their heads.Have Renaissance Dancing available. Hire a couple that can do a demonstration and teach a quick lesson, or learn about it (visit your library) and show your guests how to do it.
Party Favors: Compile a list of fun facts about the Middle Ages, print it on parchment paper and roll into a scroll to pass out to guests as they leave.
