An Unexpected Sleepover

This weekend we successfully planned a Middle Earth themed birthday party for 15 year old Skoshi A.  Of course it was mostly about the food and decorations.  We used recipes from Oleander's Hobbit Cookbook by S. A. Martel and decoration ideas from Charlotte at Waltzing Matilda.  It was a simple celebration that was thoroughly enjoyed by Skoshi A and her five guests.

The banners and signs were printed on ecru colored card stock using free Middle Earth inspired fonts we found online.

The table was set using our good china and real cloth napkins--an unusual treat in this house.

For dinner, we served sautéed swiss chard with lemon and garlic, 

homestyle fried potatoes

and honey pork chops with sautéed apples (recipe from book mentioned above)

For breakfast, we served seed cake (from the book)

sausages and nice crispy bacon,

and eggs with mushrooms, tomatoes, and fresh herbs.

Luckily we didn't have any dwarves or wizards stop by.  There wasn't a morsel left for unexpected callers.
