Robin Hood Party

This year my son decided he wanted a Robin Hood Party. As I began my search for ideas, I did not find a lot– no Robin Hood cake pans or decorations at the local party store.  So I thought I’d share what we came up with in case any body else out there ever wants to do a similar party and needs some ideas.

For the cake, I simply cooked a regular cake, but reserved some of the batter to bake two cupcakes. I turned one upside down, and stuck it to the cake with icing, and then cut the other one a little, and stuck it on top, icing the entire thing with chocolate icing to make a tree stump.

For the target, I iced a Ritz cracker. The rest of the cake I iced like grass, and then added a Robin Hood and Little John figure on top.

These hats were surprisingly easy to make– just watch this video:

For the invitation, I found a scroll template, printed them on parchment paper, and cut them out.

Name tags are made to look like leaves. I used twine to tie them to golden goblets that I found at the party store.

The party table was decorated with a treasure chest as the centerpiece. For snacks, we put grapes and cheese cubes on golden platters I found at the party store.

Our activities started with reading the story of Robin Hood, followed by an archery competition and a search for bags of gold, which (along with the Robin Hood hats) also served as party favors.

  5. Really and my guys were actually going through the nice tips and tricks located on your web page and so the sudden developed an awful feeling I had not expressed respect to the site owner just for them. All the women had been for this reason passionate to read through all of them plus have in effect simply ever been using them. Thanks for turning out to be well thoughtful as well as for choosing varieties of outstanding subject matter most people are relatively needing to know about. My very own sincere regret due to expressing gratitude to you sooner.

  6. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and
    was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.


  7. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice
    blog like this one nowadays.
