Hobbit Birthday Party. Ideas welcome! Can't Post

Hello! Heh, this is my first time posting here and it's a NEW thread, of all things. Better that than lurking forever, right?

I am turning 24 in about two days and I plan on having a birthday party with around 10 guests, the theme being a generic hobbit event (not necessarily connected to the movie). My initial idea was to make everybody wear costumes (as I'm wearing a lady hobbit one myself. So excited!), but seeing as how that's not nice on everybody's wallet, I've decided to simply color code everybody's clothes, brown, yellows and reds belonging to those who want to be hobbits, and blue, purples and whites, for those who want to be elves (so you can have more variety?)

Although I've been rolling with the idea for days now and I have a few weeks left to plan, I'm still very unsure of how everything is going down and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience doing this before and for some pointers! Whether it was a pre-The Hobbit party or some other LOTR-related festivity, how did you pull it off? What kind of activities did you incorporate? Appropriate music? Appropriate dancing?

Considering everybody there is going to be around their 20s or older, I'm kind of at a loss on what could be entertaining and hobbity, and not have it be borderline childish. As for decorating, I'm thinking it'd be cool to have the living room spruced up so that it looks rustic and natural (maybe adding flower pots, books everywhere, tree branches, comfy cushions and dim lighting). I've found some inspiration online, but does anyone have any advice on this front, as well?

As for recipes (this has been the funnest aspect to research), I'm planning on serving fruit wines, pumpkin soup, bread and cheese, sauteed mushrooms, potatoes, pork pies, apple tart and seed cake (everybody better be hungry, haha). Any advice here is welcome too!

So, penny for your thoughts? If this turns out to be half as fun as I envision it in my head, I might just post some pictures. Tongue
