Mark off the party venue with a “Brave Knights” banner simulating medieval castle pennants (1). Prepare place settings on the party tables (2), decorated with cardboard knight’s helmets serving as place cards. Bring the theme to full life with a knights-themed backdrop (3). Add some fun to your tables with a King Arthur’s Sword in the Stone centerpiece made of foam and pens that look like swords (5)! Then thrill the little guests with an “armory” table laid out with more helmets, knight’s shields and royal goblets (7).

The elements for a knight theme can be pretty challenging to DIY. So what a huge help it is to have ready-made party collections that include favors as well. We found some real fun favor ideas!

From foam swords to goblets to crowns, Knights themed favors!

Whatever gift items, tokens or sweet treats you choose to give, they will look extra fancy presented in “Brave Knights” party bags (5) or castle favor boxes (2) filled with knightly cookies.

For some kingly keepsakes, why not give gold chocolate coins in bejeweled goblets (3) or gold royal crowns (1). Send off your band of knights with foam swords (6) that will have them bravely battling foes long after the party; or a set of medieval stampers (4) to keep them more quietly occupied back home.
