The premiere of the final season of Game of Thrones magically happened on Scott’s Name Day! Thus, preparations started for a GoT premiere birthday party including the creation of an Iron Throne fit for a king. Many competed #ForTheThrone and it looks like Drogon was the winner!
I spent several months building the Iron Throne. Check out my other blog for instructions and detailed pictures.
Here’s the view from the Iron Throne.
The crown was the first thing I made for the party. Utilizing an online image of Geoffrey’s crown, I created a graphic to cut out a foam crown with my Cricut Maker. I then hand painted it gold.
Costumes and Fight #ForTheThrone
Many fought for the throne (several Mothers of Dragons, Jon Snow, and Joffrey), but it looks like Drogon (Frito) claimed the Iron Throne.
I made house banners and a Name Day banner out of paper and vinyl with my Cricut. I bought the large Targaryen and Stark banners from Amazon and the Night’s Watch banner was gifted from a friend.
The party feast consisted of many GoT themed and medieval treats. A few of the main items included:
- The Hall of Faces cheesecake with drizzled strawberry or caramel sauce as the blood
- Frey pie with a hotdog finger inside
- Dragon deviled eggs
- Greyjoy sausage special
- Imp shrimp
- Redwyne grapevine
House Goblets and Cocktails
I made customized house goblets with vinyl and my Cricut. I even came up with sigils and slogans for Perdue and Schatz. I also came up with a few custom GoT-themed cocktails – the most notable being the Ice Dragon that featured dry ice and lots of smoke.
