Happy Hobbit Day! I’m so excited to share my first piece for The Grotto Network, in which I’ve written all about how to host a Hobbit Party of your own! I hope you find it inspirational. :)

It’s been nine years since my family hosted our first Hobbit Party, a Sept. 22 celebration to honor the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. (Just in case you’ve been living in a cave deep below the Misty Mountains: yes, these are Lord of the Rings characters we’re talking about here).

Since our first celebration, the annual Hobbit Party has easily become one of our favorite annual family traditions. As the years have gone by and our family has grown, our Hobbit Parties have grown with us — from a simple Lord of the Rings movie marathon as newly married college kids to an all-day festival filled with food, drink, and games for the whole family. 

If you’ve been hoping to host a Hobbit Party of your own but weren’t sure where to start, I wanted to share our Hobbit Party-planning essentials, as well as a few ideas I’ve picked up throughout the years….
