Updated: Feb 12, 2020

When our Gwenivere turned 1, the only option was a Camelot theme. Gwen’s late Grandmother played Gwenivere on Broadway, so Melody has always wanted to honor her mama by naming her daughter after this iconic role. It’s easy to see that this party was indeed fit for a queen!

This dessert table was the perfect pair for our royal feast. Keep reading to find out how we pulled off each item.

To create our castle cake pillars, we sprayed ice cream cones with edible metallic food coloring. We then attached those to the ends of two paper towel rolls with icing as the cement. Once the paper towel rolls were stuck into the cake we added a castle wall like frosting effect.

The absolutely stunning custom “Happy Birthday Gwen“ cake topper was by Yippee Daisy.

We made a spice cake with cream cheese frosting and it definitely had an “old world” feel. But because we always have to take everything over the top, we added a smear of Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Bun Spread between each layer. It was SO GOOD.

Get yourself some pre-made mini pie crusts & throw any pudding in them! End result is a much-fancier seeming tart!

We loved using Spice x Sprinkle premium sprinkles in "Oh Girl" and "Platinum" on every dessert we had! Use code LUXE10 for 10% off on their site.

En Garde Touche cupcakes courtesy of these cute swords! Shop them HERE.

All the linens for the party, including this fabulous sequin tablecloth, were by CV Linens. Use code LUXE10 for 10% off their site!

Queen Gwen loved her party! Shop her adorable dress HERE.

Our photo backdrop for guests also served as the perfect spot for smash cake photos!

We decorated her high chair with tassels by Rock & Llama Party Co.

We love adding sparkle where ever we can and this custom cake topper by The Glitter Topper was perfection.

Gwen has watched Mommy make cakes her whole life so far, now she was finally able to enjoy one!

We made a "How Old Was the Birthday Girl" game for guests to enjoy; it was a total hit. To recreate, paint one side of an acrylic board with the color of your choice. Then cut out pieces of scrap booking glitter paper to frame the photos and printable graphics. Find the download HERE.

We also passed around "How Well Do You Know the Birthday Girl" cards. Even though she is only a year, this was still a funny and entertaining game for guests. Download HERE.

These armor inspired plates sent our tablescape over the top. Get them HERE!

Florals in hues of elegant purple kept the royal vibe going throughout.

These customized tea bags by Soul Mate Yerba were the perfect party favor for guests!

Our medieval feast had to include an oversized charcuterie board! All these ingredients were found at Trader Joe's because you can't beat their variety and prices for meats, cheese, and crackers.

Personalize your charcuterie board by spelling out someone’s name or theme with cookie cutters. Then fill with little snacks like nuts, olives, or fruit!

On the way out, guests grabbed a theme colored cake pop. We chose silver paper straws instead of cake pop sticks to really make these memorable.

We hope you loved this Glam Medieval birthday party as much as little Gwenivere did!
