We started the evening with the boys tidying up the living room while I made "dinner" and
I didn't go completely overboard, but I did get a few cool Hobbit printables to decorate the kitchen. I bought circle images meant for bottle caps for hairbows and such and made them into a banner, and I printed out a map that I found online, and bought a beautiful sketch of Bagends from Skadoodled on Etsy to hang up as well. The kids thought those decorations were very cool. In fact, the party is over...but the decorations will probably hang in the kitchen for quite a while. They are quite the conversation starter with the munchkins.
And then there were the snacks for the movie....here's what we had: Cheese, Bread & Apples for the long Journey, Elrond & the Elves Cookies (Keebler!), Bilbo's Blackberry Pie, Gollum's Fish, "My Precious" golden rings (Funyuns), Dwarf Ale (root beer), and a few other snacks.
