Borrow some VCRs from some friends and have different TV's playing the movie throughout the event/party area. The great part about this is that the volume does not need to be turned on. The visuals alone are great. For the best effect, do your best to stagger the movies from set to set (i.e. when the guests walk around, the movie is at a different place in the story on each TV set.)

Hang movie posters from famous adventure movies. These can be purchased through any number of movie poster companies online. For a more economical approach, nab them from the Internet and print them out on 8 ½ x 11 sheets of paper for 'mini' posters.

DON'T THROW AWAY THE PARTY DECORATIONS! - Save money and do something your guests will LOVE! GIVE AWAY your party decorations! Use Lord of the Rings posters (see below for inexpensive resources) to hang around your party area. Allow the winners of different games to choose which poster they'll get to walk away with at the conclusion to the party! Combine decorations with party prizes!

Large character cutouts can be purchased relatively inexpensively online. These are GREAT to have for photo opportunities, pictures that can be sent with the guests accompanying the Thank You cards.

Do your best to get your hands on some scrap wood (the wood can be weathered or new, depending on your preference or what is available.) Often times we can look on the sides of our own houses to find a few scraps left over from past projects. This wood is perfect for creating great looking signs. You can either nail a few together or let them stand alone (depending on their sizes and your own uses). With black acrylic paint (or a wide, black, permanent marker) write the names of different areas of Middle Earth (i.e. Mordor, Isengard, Rohan, etc.) With these signs posted in the appropriate places, you can give easy directions as to the exact locations for each of the activities. Simple maps can also be created using the names on the signs. These signs can either be mounted into the ground, nailed to trees, or hung with rope to name only a few options. If you can't get your hands on any wood, cardboard from brown boxes would also work.

Have an entertainment center or other such 21st century items that are 'killing' the Middle Earth mood you are trying to set? Swags of fabric (looking for 'market place' or tapestry type patterns.) It's cheap and it also looks great as curtains, table cloths or as simple draping to hide the abovementioned. Check a 'garment district' at your local metropolitan city for the best prices.

From your local library, check out different versions of the Lord of the Rings series. These look great as centerpieces to tables or just for decoration as you prop them up on flat surfaces around your party.
