Setting the scene:
Aside from the dragon and troll droppings, the mythical kingdom of Camelot looks a lot like you might expect from 12th-century England with its stone castles, wooden stables and royal trappings. And so the easy way out of this is to raid the nearest Renaissance festival, stealing everything from banners and flags to goblets and castle keys. Add medieval tapestries over stone-look wallpaper for that just-moved-into castle vibe. Other great decor items include shields, swords, suits of armor and period furnishings. Gothic sconces and statues are a nice touch, but don't forget a crystal ball - it'll tell you what to expect from this shindig. Invitations should be on parchment paper and written in calligraphy.
Noble or peasant - those were the only options during medieval times. Encourage guests to come as their favorite character from "Merlin," and if they still come in modern garb, tell them they'll be burned as witches.
On the menu:
Times were simpler then, so do a spread that features food fit for an Arthur, such as whole chickens or duck, leg of lamb and smoked trout surrounded by a table of cooked and raw vegetables. Wine and beer should quench a maiden's whistle.
On the hi-fi:
The Wizard by Uriah Heep, The Wizard's Vengeance by Legend, Knights of the Round Table by Monty Python, If I Were Your Woman by Gladys Knight & the Pips, Give It to You by Jordan Knight.
Watching Merlin have all the fun casting spells and doing wizard stuff has inspired us to enroll in the Grey School of Wizardry to learn all the ins and outs of magic. We suggest you enroll all of your guests so that we can all become apprentice wizards together!
