How to Host a King Arthur Themed Party

If I had the budget, I’d love to throw a King-Arthur-themed party to celebrate my book, The Forgotten Sister. But since that’s an impossibility, I’ve put together a little list of must-haves for your King-Arthur-themed party. You could throw a watch party for the DVD release of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) or, if you can’t wait that long, there’s the 2004 movie or the Sam Neil tv movie, or even the 2008 BBC series Merlin. And with a little modification, this guide could be used for a knight/princess party, or anything generally medieval/warrior themed such as a Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones.

Costumes

Well, it’s time to look like a knight or a lady. You can buy costumes on-line, but if you’re crafty, you can also make them. These DIYs are for kids, but a bit more fabric will make them for adults!

 

 

 

Decorations

For decorations, castles, shields and other knightly things are a must. Check out these DIYs on Pinterest:

 

 

 

 

 

Food

Keep the food simple and rustic, but don’t be afraid to throw in modern twists, like this Coca-Cola Chicken Wings:


The pièce de résistance should be your cake. I think one in the shape of a castle should be appropriate, like this one by Rosanna Pansino:

Music

The music is entirely up to you, but I recommend a distinctly Celtic or medieval theme. Head on over to YouTube and have a look around, or listen to this video from composer Adrian Von Ziegler:

Mock sword fights and jousts are the way forward! Just make sure nobody loses an eye!
