To Eat, Or Not To Eat...
Eye-catching decorations? Check. Clever cake toppers? Check. Dramatic games? Check. Well-informed, witty conversation? With our printable party kits infused with fun and fascinating trivia from our friends at Mental Floss, that goes without saying! They offer the memorable experience of a party where a smattering of Shakespearean smarts (like the fact that the Bard invented many words, including the name “Jessica”) is the main attraction.
Hamlet was never the life of the party, but if he’d staged our Shakespearean Soiree, he might have gotten all existential over his cupcake, wondering “to eat, or not to eat.” Cast a party full of drama, comedy, and history with this fanciful, Shakespeare-themed party kit. Inspired by the timeless plays of the Bard, it includes Hamlet's cupcake toppers, "sweets for the sweet" treat bags (also inspired by a line from Hamlet) placemats modeled on Macbeth's witches' cauldron where you can draw your own simmering potion, and amazing Shakespearean facts from Mental Floss that’ll bring the playwright’s lasting influence to life for you and your guests. Toast to the two largest moons of Uranus, named for Titania and Oberon, the Fairy Queen and King from A Midsummer Night's Dream, or celebrate the origin of the phrase “it’s Greek to me” (Julius Caesar) while you sip your drink. Each part of the kit provides simple yet detailed directions for crafting decorations, games, and special details that'll bring uniquely Elizabethan flair to your celebration.
Mental Floss is the ultimate source for tantalizing trivia. Their myth-busting, endearingly geeky, and addictively entertaining magazine, website, and videos (featuring John Green) help bring the worlds of science, history, and culture to life.
Recommended for groundlings age 5 to 105.
