Kid's Birthday Party Ideas

Today I am sharing our Brave Knight in Shining Armor 7th Birthday Party!

“Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.”

― C.S. Lewis

Knight in Shining Armor Birthday Party Invitation

For my sons 7th birthday he decided on a Knight in Shining Armor theme. I was super excited for this party theme since it came just after my husband & my Anniversary Trip to Paris & London. After spending two weeks emerged in history and touring castles, this party was the perfect outlet for all the inspiration I’d stored up!

Our printable collection was inspired by the coats of arms & tapestries we viewed while on our Tour in Europe. Printables are now available in the Paperie.

I created the dessert table backdrop using a large art canvas, spray paint and a rectangle stencil I created with a piece of card stock. Mr. Itsy painted the canvas a light gray and I used my stencil & darker gray spray paint to create the brick effect.

I used fondant over my cake pops so that I could insert a trimmed down piece of paper straws without them cracking so that I could add a real feather to each Knight Helmet.

The home-made castle piñata doubled as a centerpiece for the kid’s table. The kids helped create this simple project with cereal boxes, toilet paper tubes, paint & glue. I love finding something the kid’s can help with for the parties, it gets theme even more excited for the celebration knowing they worked on it as well.

Kid’s activities included scratch art Shields from Hobby Lobby and Jousting using foam pool noodles.

Gold plastic cups were embellished with glued on jewels to create Knight Goblets at a fraction of the cost of the pre made ones online!

Isn’t he just the handsomest little Knight ever?! Okay.. so maybe I’m a tad biased!

Medieval Knight Satchel party favors

Each little guest went home with a Medieval Satchel that we stitched together filled with goodies (Gold candy coins, candy Lances (unicorn pops) toy recorders, etc.) as favors. (Satchel kit was purchased on clearance at Hobby Lobby)

We hope you enjoy this fun celebration as much as all the knight’s and ladies attending did!
