Medieval Theme Party Favors
Party favors are an excellent way of giving your guests their very own piece of the party to take home. Allow yourself to be creative and gather some of your favorite items that remind you of medieval times. Below is a list of medieval theme party favors that will help you gather ideas your guests will be raving about long after they’ve left your party.
1. Costume Garnishes
Need garnishes? Provide your guests with royalty accessories such as wands, armor, hats, helmets, crowns, or shields. These giveaways may be handed out at the time of arrival so they can be used immediately, or given out afterward as something that will remind your guests of the party. You can also use some of these accessories as favor holders. For example, give your guests helmets that are filled with candy or sweets, such as cookies or brownies.
2. Medieval Finger Puppets
These toys may be found at a variety of toy stores. Children especially love these, along with theme pinwheels.

For a children’s party, you could give out decorated plastic goblets, or perhaps have the children decorate them as an activity for the party. No matter the occasion, these medieval goblets serve as excellent favor holders. For the kids, apple cider is a fun “medieval drink.” Otherwise, adults could be served something a little more interesting.

Host your party in a mystic medieval castle by decorating the area with candles, gleaming armor, and other traditional medieval items! You can even hang large pictures of long staircases on open walls to make it look like a huge castle
