A Royal Princess and Knight Party Ideas

A Royal Princess and Knight Party invitations by B.Nute productions on Etsy
Although this is one of my first invitations I created, I still love it a lot! In the sea of princess and knight invitations, I feel this one really stands out. Also, in the spirit of the Renaissance Faire being back in town in Northern California, I thought I'd share some decoration and menu ideas to go along with this great Princess and Knight theme. Be sure to check out my website, for my full Princess and Knight Party Guide including Art Activites, Games, Entertainment ideas and more...


It’s England in the 1500’s... the beautiful princess awaits her gallant knight to arrive upon his stead for his jousting match... any Medieval or Renaissance imagery and items are perfect for your Royal Faire! Below are some more decorating ideas for your Princess and Knight party.

Create a Castle
Designate an area of your yard (perhaps a jungle gym, playhouse or patio area) as the Castle. Surround the area with colorful construction paper flags. If the party is indoor, designate a room as the Castle. Line windows with colorful cellophane to act as stained glass.Designate 2 dining room chairs as a throne area. Place decorative pillows and a throw blanket over the chairs to add royalty.

Jousting Arena
Set up your camping tent (or kid’s tent, if they have one) as the Jousting tent. Decorate the outside with colorful flags and streamers. String the flags from the tent to a nearby tree, trellis or tall garden stake. Buy tall garden stakes and tape long pieces of different colored crepe paper to the top. You can add a construction paper flag to the top as well.
