Howdy and Welcome! What a great idea :D [In reply to] Can't Post

I love it!

I think your idea of colour-coding costumes for people to enjoy is very good. You're right, it can get expensive. You could also give people the option to wear their own costumes or use what you'll have available. There may be a few geeky friends who would LOVE to put together a costume or have one already.

Music: you could use parts of the soundtrack and maybe have some rustic folk-music highlighting hobbity instruments (if your going with Shire-theme), then maybe some Elvish music (harps, flutes & such), and some harsh metallic/drum music for Mordor-esque music. You could listen to examples online then borrow the desired cds through your local library's interlibrary loan. That would give you versatility and keep the cost down.

Food: I think you're on the right track! I'll dig through my files and see if I can offer up more suggestions. We do tend to talk about food a LOT here ;D You could make some lembas (out of shortbread recipes), Rings (donuts), and some turkey or chicken drumsticks, etc.

Decorations: There again... very good ideas! You could also put out some of those LARGE pinecones that are always around at Christmas time. Maybe some stores still have some lying about. Hobbits tend to have a lot of herbs and garlic hanging from the ceiling to dry, and they like flowers, too. Bag End is always my inspiration.

Please let us know how your plans are coming along... and YES to PICTURES!!
