My son wanted to have a Dragon’s & Knights birthday party so…I did what I always do…get on Pinterest for some inspiration!! Here is what I came up with…everyone had a great time and I had an awesome time getting prepped for it!
March is a hard time of year to plan a birthday party…do you do it outside or inside!? Is it going to be freezing or nice warm spring like weather…we never know!!! That’s Iowa for you! We opted for the garage this year as mother nature wasn’t too kind with any warm temps. We did do our Dragon Egg hunt outside but we did it fast!!
Here was the spread!!!
Dragon Slayers – Pretzel Rods dipped in white candy chocolate (leave a tip for the handle), sprinkled with edible gold flecks and for the handle we slid on a gummy lifesaver!
Dragon Spit – Green punch purchased at Wal-Mart. I just printed the labels out on regular printer paper and taped them on.
Dragon Toes – Crescent rolls wrapped around little smokies
Swords & Sheilds – Cheese & Crackers and little mini swords (also bought at Wal-Mart by the toothpicks)
Dragon Claws – Bugles
Dragon Eyeballs – Green Grapes
Cupcakes – I didn’t get too creative here (I let the local bakery tackle this task)! Baking isn’t my forte! X that…I can bake, cannot decorate!!
The boys getting their grub on!
This was one of the activities we did at the party. Before-hand I picked up some form board at the dollar store and cut them into shield shapes. I then spray painted them all silver and took black electrical tape to make the design on the front. For their swords I picked up green bubble wands…I thought that was pretty clever! 🙂 Then at the party the kiddos got to decorate their own shields.
The kids had fun decorating them. I had little bowls of stickers (That I got at Oriental Trading – Knight themed), little craft jewels with sticker backs and markers.
Dragon Egg hunt…luckily my sons birthday is close to Easter so it’s easy to find “Dragon Eggs”! I filled them with fun candy I picked up at Party City!
Can’t forget the party favors! First picture…again my local bakery came to the rescue for individual wrapped cookies for everyone. I then picked up tons of cute Knight themed goodies from Oriental Trading. I put them all in a clear bag and attached a Thank you tag I designed and printed on cardstock.
This was a super fun party…I love theme parties! This year he is having a game truck party, stay tuned!!
