Knights and Dragons Party

1. Knights & Dragons Party

Take the age-old theme of knights and dragons and bring it right into the 21st century with the brilliant food and décor ideas from this birthday party. A formidable knight is stationed in front of stone castle walls flanked with flaming torches and boldly colored dragon banners. Fleur-de-lis topped cupcakes add to the fierce and graphic feel of the décor, and the addition of a sweet stuffed dragon is a friendly welcome. The royal dessert table is ready.

DIY Knight Party Tunic

2. DIY Knight Party Tunic

Every brave knight deserves to have great gear. Create a no-sew DIY knight tunic with ease by just using a bolt of felt, ribbon, and your glue gun. Head to the fabric store for a bit of gray felt to mimic shiny armor. Grab a few pieces of red and gold for the emblem. Cut your felt to the measurements included in this tutorial and attach a ribbon to the sides to secure. Have your noble knight grab his tunic, and spear and head out on a journey to fight dragons.

3. DIY Jousting Lance

Every royal knight needs a shield of armor to protect them from fiery dragon breath and the enemy’s swords. Make your little knight and his party guests their very own tunic with this simple DIY tutorial. Using felt means you don’t even have to sew, so this project is super easy and takes no time at all. You can also make an easy paper pattern by following the measurements in the photos.

Dragon Fire Balls

4. Dragon Fire Balls

Every magical medieval kingdom had a dragon terrorizing the knights and townspeople. Turn their fiery breath into a delicious snack with this awesome idea for Dragon Fire Balls. Simply throw some cheese puff balls into a glass jar, add a cute label, and you have a super fun treat for your party guests. This easy snack is a huge hit with kids and an easy treat that requires next to no prep.

Sword in the Stone Party Decoration

5. Sword In The Stone Party Decoration

One of our favorite fairy tales is The Sword in the Stone. The magical challenge of pulling the sword is a necessary feat for any medieval knight. Use the classic tale to draw inspiration for your dragons and knight party décor. A plastic sword from the dollar store and a painted chunk of foam from a recent package makes the perfect addition to a dessert table or centerpiece.

Royal Scroll Party Invitations

6. Royal Scroll Party Invitations

Set the tone for your epic dragons and knight’s birthday party with these gorgeous royal scroll party invitations. Use downloadable clip art, medieval-looking text, and some clever wording to create your personalized invitations then print them onto faux distressed paper. Roll each invitation into a scroll then singe the ends over a candle flame to give them a real authentic look. Any extras also make great party décor.

Knight Cake

7. Knight Cake

Your birthday boy or girl will truly feel like royalty with a cake as magnificent as this. The fabulous cake has five layers of medieval decorated cake, including a drawbridge castle and textures made for a king. The very top layer is stabbed with a knight’s sword and the front is completed with a beautiful fondant shield. This cake is the star of the show.

Chocolate Castle Cake

8. Chocolate Castle Cake

With a little imagination and loads of chocolate, you can recreate this epic medieval castle cake yourself! Take a plain square layered cake to the next level with chocolate bar brick walls, round chocolate cookie towers, and a Kit-Kat bar draw bridge to go over the mote. A little bit of melted chocolate makes the perfect cement to hold all of the pieces together and make this cake a castle fit for a true, chocolate-loving king!

Knights and Dragons Birthday Party

9. Knights & Dragons Birthday Party

The moment we laid eyes on these adorable medieval knight helmets and complimentary dragon cake pops we knew the party was going to be fantastic. From a traditional medieval tent made from colorful fabric and a few crafty touches to the fierce dragon fire cake, this party is decorated to the nines. Gold, royal blue, and lime green make a wildly fun color scheme, and the black and white checkered accents are such a fun addition.

Coat of Arms Favors

10. Coat Of Arms Favors

Send your party guests home with a bucket full of goodies decorated with your very own coat of arms. To recreate these simple DIY treat buckets, simply wrap plastic containers with red paper, strings of ribbon, and printed coat of arms and fleur-de-lis graphics. Fill the buckets with any treats you’d like to send home as a thank you! Our favorite loot bag fillers include small dollar store toys, wrapped candies, and thank you notes.

Knight in Shining Armor Dessert Table

12. Knight In Shining Armor Dessert Table

Inspired by the historic castles of Paris and London, this Knight in Shining Armor birthday party looks beautifully decorated and wonderfully fun. The impressive dessert table backdrop was made using an art canvas, spray paint, and a simple rectangle stencil made from a piece of cardstock. Don’t miss the chocolate Whoppers cannon balls, the feathered knight’s helmet cake pops, or the homemade castle piñata!

DIY Medieval Torch Chandelier

You would never believe that this amazing chandelier was made from recycled cardboard and just an hour or so of crafting. Black poster board, toilet paper rolls, and two cardboard circles make the base of this imaginative medieval chandelier. Complete the party centerpiece with tissue paper flames and some cardboard chains!

Dragon Toilet Paper Tube Craft

14. Dragon Toilet Paper Tube Craft

We just love how simple and awesome the dragon toilet paper tube craft is for kids! It is ridiculously easy and interactive to make, which makes it perfect for preschool ages and up. You can even stick a craft stick through the bottom of the toilet paper tube to create a fun toy for puppet play or pretend knight play. Have them ready for kids to play with or make them as a craft at your Knights and dragons birthday bash.

Knight and Dragon Castle Cake

15. Knight & Dragon Castle Cake

This fantastic layered cake uses fondant, gum paste, and icing to recreate an epic medieval adventure scene complete with a castle, knight in shining armor, and fierce yet adorable dragon perched up high. One of my favorite parts has to be the drawbridge gate falling over the mote made from blue icing. This cake would be the perfect centerpiece for the dessert table, and would surely be a fan favorite.

Dragon Cake

16. Dragon Cake

No party is complete without a cake, and this dragon cake is the perfect not-too-fierce dragon party treats! This homemade friendly cake is perfectly decorated with fondant spikes running down the dragon’s back and a sweet birthday message. The cupcakes are topped with tiny fondant shields that add just the right touch.

DIY Cardboard Castle

Princesses, knights, kings, and queens all need a castle to protect them from the neighborhood dragon. The best part of this DIY cardboard castle is that it is super inexpensive and will keep your kids busy for hours! It takes a bit of work, but it really is worth it in the end. The cardboard castle is durable enough to last a whole birthday party and will provide a space for imaginative play for months to come.

Storm the Castle Catapult Game

18. Storm The Castle Catapult Game

What kind of activity can you plan for an indoor knight party? Get your birthday boy or girl and their party guests to make these crafty catapults used right on the kitchen table. The actual catapults use simple materials including popsicle sticks, craft sticks, and regular masking tape. Once your catapults are constructed, use squares of packing foam as boulders to launch at foam board castle!

Medieval Knights Birthday Party

This blogger thought of every decoration, snack, and activity possible for their amazing backyard medieval bash.

DIY Dragon Tails

These DIY dragon tails are just about the cutest things we have ever seen. They are designed with two straps that wrap around the waist with a Velcro closure, making it easy for kids to get them on and off all by themselves.

Stick with bright solid fabrics or experiment with textures and patterns for an awesome custom tail.

Chocolate dragon eggs

21. Chocolate Dragon Eggs

Chocolate dragon eggs are a true work of art and an amazing addition to the dessert table at your knights and dragons-themed birthday party!

Adults take note- these are also great for a Game of Thrones-themed party!

Dragon Cupcakes

Another fun cupcake decorating idea! Recreate these adorable little dragons made completely with icing following this super simple tutorial.
