A castle theme party is extremely popular with both boys and girls. Boys can focus more on the dragons and knights, and girls on the royalty and princesses.
The medieval period was a fun time for parties, and so it’s sure that a medieval theme will be just as fun. This will get the imagination reeling!
Castle theme party invitations are regal: In the tradition of medieval majesty, your guests receive a homemade royal scroll tied with a purple ribbon. The words scribed on it read: “You are officially invited to the royal birthday of ________________” along with a personalized message. Sprinkles swirled around the inner edges of the scroll add flare and elegance. This will work well for elementary school kids as well as those in their early-teens.
No decoration is more elegant for a medieval party than a grand castle. You can have the basement made up to look like the inside of a medieval castle with painted wooden or cardboard sets. At the end of the room you can place a platform with a small “throne” for the royals (the birthday child and his/her parents) after you and your spouse (Dressed as King/Queen) usher your birthday child into the medieval party. All the young guests can dress up in tights and other simple medieval ware. Do some research on this and share with the other parents.
For music, you can either buy a CD of medieval music or even better hire a musician who plays a medieval instrument. This will make it authentic!
The food will be authentically medieval as well, and eating it
will be just as medieval. Provide food to be eaten with the hands, like
chicken. Medieval men liked to eat with their hands! Remember: Keep it
simple, but have a variety for all!
