10 Fantastic Tips for the Game of Thrones Theme Party

1. Game of Thrones Theme Party Preparation

If you’re having a Game of Thrones theme party, you get to fully commit to your favourite character, house or setting. Think about whether you want to have a opulent party like the Lannisters or the Freys’ famous red wedding, or a Spartan wall party at the Night’s Watch. First, think about where and how you’re going to have your Game of Thrones theme party.

  • Where do I have the theme party?
  • Do I celebrate rustic like the Starks of Winterfell, luxurious like the Lannisters or even lavish and self-indulgent like Tyrion? Stylish like Margaery Tyrell, a desert-hot summer party like in Dorne or a winter party at the icy Wall? Or do I even invite you to a macabre red wedding in the Freys’ twin towers? 😉
  • What decoration do I get for it?
  • What drinks and food will go with it?
  • Do I want to prepare a funny, exciting or entertaining GOT game as a party highlight?
  • Do I have the Game of Thrones soundtrack (of at least one season) and at least 1 episode on DVD / Bluray?
  • What do I have to buy beforehand?

2. Invitation to the Game of Thrones theme party from the Maester

In the world of Game of Thrones, the maesters and highborn lords and ladies write their invitations to the Game of Thrones theme party on parchment. There are several large families with family crests who seal their letters with sealing wax and a seal of their heraldic animal (see amazon offer below). Of course, you can also type the invitation on the computer and just use a family crest as the background! Then simply roll it up, tie it with a red or blue satin ribbon or seal it.

3. Create a Real GoT Atmosphere

For the atmosphere of your theme party, it is important that as many guests as possible take on the role of a character from GOT. In the invitation, ask your guests to come to the theme party as a character from Game of Thrones. Those who don’t like to dress up can also come with tousled hair in their everyday look as “wildlings” – or with a bit of white theatre make-up and leftover blood from Halloween as White Walkers 😉

Those who bring snacks will score points with wolf-shaped biscuits, hard-boiled stuffed dragon eggs, etc.  And of course, the epic soundtrack of the series is a must! If you don’t have entire episodes playing in the background anyway, you can find a number of videos on YouTube, such as this epic compilation of all the series deaths in seasons 1-6.

For true Game of Thrones fans, an original Game of Thrones game is a real party highlight. Creatives can go all out here and host a Game of Thrones quiz or watch one of our game tips in this article.

4. Fantastic Game of  Thrones Theme Party Decoration

Anything that fits Game of Thrones is suitable as decoration! If you don’t want to commit to matching decorations to a House of the 7 Kingdoms, you can simply use anything that belongs to the series as decorations. Hang up a map of the world of Game of Thrones – these maps are included in many DVD boxes of the series! Hang an eye-catching Targaryen banner, put up a miniature of the Iron Throne and have Mugs of Direwolf ready to toast with later, roaring KING OF THE NORTH! Etc.

Decorative Motifs:

  • Dragons
  • Wolves
  • Deer
  • Roses
  • Snakes
  • Medieval weapons such as swords and lances

Decoration tTips for the Small Purse:

  • You can easily make your own dragon eggs as decorations! Simply use 3 balloons, blow them up, cover them with cardboard mesh, let the whole thing dry and paint scales on each egg (egg colours: green, black-reddish, gold).
  • Print out different family crests on A4, cut them out and make a flag garland out of them, which you can stretch across the room or hang on the wall.

5. Game of Thrones Theme Party Outfit for Women

Take on the role of a character and dress and do your hair like them.

  • Daenerys: light blue dress, wig with long white blonde hair, a dragon on her shoulder (see below) 🙂
  • Arya: worn trousers and shirt, short dark brown fuzzy hair, needle around her waist
  • Sansa: dress in medieval look, wig with long red hair, elaborate make-up
  • Catelyn Stark: Medieval dress, dark hair
  • Shae: provocative silk dress or oriental dress, dark hair and gold jewellery, money pouch for her earnings on her hip
  • Cersei: medieval dress in royal colours, long blonde hair or barefoot in a penitent shirt with short hair following her Walk of Shame

  • Living Dead: zombie outfit 🙂
  • Nymeria / Lady: Full-body costume of a wolf

Game of Thrones is set in a fictional world with many peoples – reminiscent of all sorts of eras and cultures in world history. This is great, because it means you can choose a costume that particularly appeals to you on a whim. So if you don’t embody any particular character, you can simply slip into a medieval dress as a lady from Westeros, into a Roman tunic, lightly dressed in a warrior look like a Sand Snake from Dorne, thickly wrapped up like someone from the North, seductive like a courtesan from Lys, etc.

  • King Baratheon: medieval royal robe, full beard, dark brown hair and a beer belly – a tankard of wine makes a good prop….

7. Play the Original Drinking Game at Your Game of Thrones Theme Party

Tyrion Lannister loves wine, women – and drinking games. In one scene in the series, he is drinking with the mercenary Bronn and the prostitute Shae, playing the game Never have I ever. The drinking game works like this: A player starts a sentence with I never and adds something.

For example, I have never paid for sex – the more provocative, the more interesting the reactions of the other players. Because anyone who has very well done that…. has to drink. Detailed instructions for the drinking game never have I ever with the best 100 questions can of course also be found at Abenteuer Freundschaft.

If you have also planned series watching as a highlight at the party, you can combine this wonderfully with a drinking game! Check out this article on TV drinking games for popular TV shows for ideas.

8. Food in the 7 Kingdoms and Exotic Countries

For snacks, you can provide finger food, which you can set in scene by giving it a name that fits the theme. To do this, simply label a party skewer with the name of the snack and insert it decoratively. There are also special Game of Thrones cookbooks with fantastic ideas!

Lay a sinuous snake of cheese cubes, halved tomatoes, grapes and mini mozzarellas as a Dornish snake steak. A bowl of salad with wild herb flowers is then Tyrell’s Harvest from Rose Garden. A bowl of golden biscuits is Tywin Lannister’s Golden Treasure. And if you’re planning to bake a cake – then lemon cake in a wolf silicone mould, because that’s Sansa’s favourite!

9. Game of Thrones Drinking Party

In Game of Thrones, the main drink is wine! Of course, this doesn’t mean that you only offer wine to your guests – but it’s best if everyone drinks the beverage of their choice from a wine glass or, even better, a wine goblet.

If you want to offer cocktails or play a drinking game, simply name the drink appropriately. Instead of Sex on the Beach – Tyrion’s Pleasure, a red cocktail becomes Dragon’s Blood, a cocktail with lots of coconut milk or cream becomes Wolf’s Milk and beer is the Water of the Night Watch 😉

Tip: If you have time, write the name of the drink on self-adhesive labels and stick them on the bottles.

10. Music and Series

The Game of Thrones soundtrack belongs to every real Game of Thrones theme party! There’s a soundtrack for every season available as iTune, mp3, to buy on vinyl or CD – or you can use YouTube and put together a playlist of tunes.

You can also play the best scenes from the series on the TV – or projected from the beamer. I would set the sound to silent – otherwise the party will end in general binge-watching and everyone will gather in front of the TV :-).

We’ve got lots more ideas for theme parties, including the best theme parties for adults and 111 great theme ideas on the party themes list. Browse our treasure trove of ideas and get inspired every day for activities with friends, family and your sweetheart!
