For the 'Feast' challenge. The elves of Lasgalen celebrate harvest.
The Feast Of The Forest
Legolas led the elves as they approached Thranduil, setting the basket he carried before his father. “Blessed be Yavanna, the Giver of Fruits!”
Apples, berries, nuts and mushrooms spilled at the feet of the Elvenking. He wore a crown of autumn leaves and berries to celebrate the bounty and harvest of the forest and waited as other gifts were laid before him – dark blackberry and elderberry wines; lighter whites from apple and elderflower; silk woven from spider thread.
As the last basket was placed before Thranduil, Legolas bowed again. “We present to you the feast of the forest, my lord.”
