Hey all, how are you? We're still recovering from the invasion of 10 little knights this weekend.
My youngest had his first real birthday party and I have been pretty busy setting it all up. Followers of my instagram account have seen some of the preparations already. I'm sure glad for a little something called Pinterest (just check my birthday inspiration board ).Today I'm doing a little round up post, in case you ever need to throw a knights party!
The invitation idea came from pinterest, you can find these little castles in all shapes and sizes (I pinned this one) and they're very easy to make with some cardboard and markers.
To kick off the party, I made a whole bunch of tunics for the kids to wear and to take home with them afterwards. I have to give credits to Ikea for the perfect fleeceblankets with the scalloped edges! This made my life a lot easier, although it still took me longer then I had imagined. Luckily these were a huge success, so definitely worth the effort!
All dressed up the knights started on their quest, first to capture the ring of the giant with a lance.
After that they had to make it through the deep dark forest, a game that was well received last year at my oldest his ninja party (of course it wasn't a forest but laserbeams at that party).
Next stop, slaying the dragon. I made the head of the dragon out of egg cartons (thanks to this pin) and the body consists of balloons with confetti, one for each kid to pop. I'm still discovering confetti in the weirdest places around the house.
Finish the party with a treasure hunt in the playground and you have one bunch of satisfied and tired 5 year olds!
