Dragons and Knights Party Details:
This is what Michelle said about planning this party- “My boys love dragons and knights and because we love to party, we had a little Dragons and Knights play date.
The Dessert Table & Decor:
To create the backdrop, I started with a black background and some boxes covered in flagstone paper from Shindigz to showcase the Knight my mom found for me at Ross. I found some flame torches on clearance also from Shindigz that were the perfect accent pieces. I used silver satin fabric for my cake table backdrop and added chess pieces symbolizing the King and Queen of our little kingdom. To continue the theme, I also displayed an Excalibur sword along with a dungeon lock and key.
To keep costs to a minimum, I made chocolate cupcakes with fondant fleur-de-lis toppers, butterscotch popcorn and regular popcorn. The gold popcorn boxes and knight party cups from Oriental Trading Company were filled with coordinating gumballs. I also made cereal treat “castles” dipped in chocolate and topped them with little flags. I picked up a yummy strawberry shortcake from Sam’s Club for $9 and topped it our dragon emblem.
I made “Royal Snacks” stickers for the popcorn boxes, shield cupcake toppers, favor tags, dragon banners, stickers for the playing cards and candy bar wrappers complete with golden crowns.
The Kiddie Table:
For each place setting, I glued glittery crowns and fleur-de-lis from Michael’s dollar bins to favor boxes from Oriental Trading Company. I re-purposed my son’s dragon figurine as the table centerpiece. Since dragon’s love jeweled treasure, I scattered plastic jewels from Michael’s dollar bins on the cake stand. I found foam shields at Target’s Dollar Spot and spray painted them gold to match the inflatable swords from Oriental Trading Company.
The kids role played, colored and decorated their own dragon & knight flag pennants, flew dragon gliders from Oriental Trading Company and sword fought like valiant knights.”
