Sir Mason The Brave asked me for a Knight party fairly out of the blue and I was happy to oblige his little four-year-old whim.
I lucked out and found the Brave Knight collection of Meri Meri products on Zulily a while ago which made decorating a total breeze. One of my favorite girls, Karla, had some great wooden shields and swords that she loaned me as well and they were a great finishing touch.
His party was on a Friday from 5:00 - 6:00 and he invited 5 friends. Two were out of town so we ended up with a small crowd.
I ordered cupcakes from Market Street and then set them in special liners and topped them off with knight toppers (from Zulily)
The little gold cups I ordered from Amazon and I gave the boys each one in their favor bags to take home as well.
I set up a little craft for when they first arrived... making shields!
I cut out shields and handle strips and put out foam stickers and lots of crayons. The boys decorated them and then I just taped the handle onto the back.
I set everything up before Dave picked everyone up from school/Miss Lisa's house and was READY to party when they got home. Don't Mason and G look excited?!?!?! ;) hahaha
Mason checked everything out and then told me he wanted to do a "princess dance" with me. I die.
Luke IMMEDIATELY wanted to change his clothes when he got home - gray shorts and a grey sweatshirt... just like a "real knights armor" ;) He shares my passion for a good theme!
After making shields, we headed outside so they could throw water balloons at our "fire breathing dragon".
Dave is THE BEST sport!!!
This is my favorite!!!
Luke throws the water balloon at Dave's chest...
It ricocheted off his chest...
And popped right at Luke's feet ;)
Priceless!!! And I love the other boys reactions ;)
We ate "royal pizza"...
... and cheersed our glasses ;)
I loved that Mason included Griffin in his party ;)
After dinner we opened presents and did a little sword fighting...
These three buddies go to Miss Lisa's house together. God Bless, Miss Lisa!
We loaded up their party bags with their shields, swords, cups, masks, party hats, hot wheels car and balloons and called it a night!
Mason told me later it was THE BEST PARTY IN THE HISTORY OF PARTIES!!! and I would have to agree. It was so fun to see him with his friends and really make it all about just him!
