Hear ye, Hear ye! Your dashing young lord has requested a themed party and in his honor, you’ll be throwing a Knight Birthday Party! Don’t worry, dear Queen. It is much easier than it sounds.
To create your invitation, use Old English Script on your computer or write in calligraphy onto parchment paper something along the lines of “Lords and Ladies of the Court are hereby requested to attend Sir ______ ‘s Birthday Party. “ Feel free to buy some regal looking invitations instead.
As your guests arrive, usher them into the “Royal Court” to be knighted (or princesses crowned with a tiara)by the King or Queen of the castle. After the knighting, bestow the champions their own shield or helmet. Other activities must, of course, include Slay The Dragon Piñata, play with Playmobil Knights toys, Pin the Sword on the Knight, and a Court Jester show (a goofy adult putting on a goofy display). If you can, hire a fencing instructor for a demonstration!
Food for the royal court can include tangy shish-kabobs of chicken, pineapple, cherry tomatoes, and zucchini marinated in teriyaki sauce, sliced fruit topped with yogurt, veggie platters, and pasta salad. It should keep them sustained in case a jousting tournament arises.
A Knight Birthday Party is tons of fun, especially if you slip into Old English language… So, have ye a good time!
