For my brother’s 12th birthday, we had a Hobbit themed party. The table was set fancy (That is, fancy enough for a hobbit.) and we all sat around and ate like hobbits. It was fun. Want to share in the fun? Here’s how we did it:
At the table, we had root beer for “beer” bottles.
We also had slices of cheese “by the block”. Have you seen the Hobbit The Unexpected Journey? It’s a quote from the movie.
There were grapes for the “elf stones”. Try to ask for the “elf stones” when you’re sitting at the table and not the “grapes”. It really is a memory challenge.
The goldfish were “Gollum’s Goodies”. The key is not to think about Gollum’s actual goodies in the movie. You might just lose your appetite.
The candied rings were “The Ring of Power”. Place one on your finger before you eat it. *gasp* You’ve disappeared!
The elf sandwhich cookies were titled “The Council of Elrond”. It gave a very nice touch to the table.
The bowl of fruit is just the fruit from the hobbit, Sam’s, garden. Thank you, Sam!
The guacamole and chips were the “Dead Marshes Dip”. Eeww . . .
I think George had a great birthday.
