Sometimes you just want to party Middle Earth style. But whereas most Lord of the Rings party planners are content to just write out their dinner menu in Elvish, or require that everyone where hoods and capes, you want to make your LOTR party a cut above. Halloween is coming up, which is the perfect excuse for a Middle Earth party, but in truth you could throw this kind of party any time of year. All you need are some willing friends, a small budget and some planning ahead. Let’s take a look at a few of the themed activities that are going to put your party over the edge.
What About Second Breakfast?
What about it? Start your epic Lord of the Rings party at your house with a “second breakfast”, laid out in true Hobbit fashion – that is to say, plentiful! Regardless of the time of day, go for traditional breakfast foods: rashers of bacon, eggs, toast and scones, all served with an ample array of jams, preserves and condiments. You may think it’s excessive, but that’s because you aren’t thinking like a Hobbit! And besides, you are going to need a solid meal in you, because there will be some physical activity later on.
Depending on your region’s laws surrounding fireworks, the next activity on the docket should be a firework show worthy of the Grey Wizard himself. Remember to follow all safety precautions, as per the label, and have everyone in the group stand a safe distance back. This may be a Lord of the Rings party, but you still have to follow normal human rules, unfortunately. If your area doesn’t permit fireworks, sparklers will do the trick, or you can skip this step.
