A Taste of Medieval History for Your Costume Party

Put a touch of the long distant past into your party with a Medieval theme. Everyone thinks of the Medieval period as one full of knights in shining armor rescuing damsels in distress. It's not only a taste of history when you host a medieval party, but you give your guests an opportunity to see things they may not have seen, and maybe even join in the fun.

Have you ever had dreams of being rescued by a knight? Use the Medieval party as a chance to realize a dream, and let your significant other play the part of the night who rescues you from danger. Does it sound silly? Of course it does, but aren't parties supposed to be fun? So do what you want with your party, and let your guests do accordingly.

This is the 21st century, so where are you going to finish Medieval wear? You can find it at any stores that sell costumes, and even if you aren't having your party around Halloween, there are still many costume stores open - after all, schools and theatres have stage productions that require costumes, and not everyone does custom-made costumes. You may have to search a little bit, but you can fight a costume that is fitting for the medieval period. If you want to be really creative with your party, you may even find a replica of a horse or find a couple of friends who are willing to play the part of the horse and make your "rescue" more authentic.

Other ideas for your party include treasure hunts and scavenger hunts that are based on items from the period, available in stores that specialize in theme parties. If time permits, you may choose to conduct in depth research and serve food, drinks, and entertainment that are in tune with the Medieval period in history.
