Game of Thrones wedding vibes in this darkly elegant dinner party
Any GOT fans out there? Oh yes, we thought so! Can you believe there is only ONE episode LEFT? We thought we’d pay homage to the show with this GOT inspired dinner party that the ultimate Game of Thrones fans, Beijos Events, whipped up in honor of the finale this Sunday. Hear about all the amazing deets Jacquelyn incorporated into this dark, elegant dinner party as you scroll through Megan Welker‘s photos below. The references are too good guys, TOO good.
Jacquelyn tells it, If you’re like me and millions of other people, you’ve become engrossed in Game of Thrones. It’s hard to believe our beloved gang of the seven kingdoms will no longer be around after this Sunday so we decided to send them off with a bang and celebrate with this Game of Thrones inspired tablescape. Don’t worry there will be no severed heads or Starbucks coffee cups on our table.
I started with rich velvet textures; furs reminiscent of the wildlings and Jon Snow, and dark marble and metal tabletops all from Sweet Salvage. The tabletop items consisted of dark, light and metallics. I used Cherished Rentals’ beautiful collection of heath ceramic plates in black and stone with gold flatware and candlestick holders. Black candlesticks were lit and dripped along the table. The napkins from Hostess Haven were a bit more masculine in a dark blue color and I paired them with their copper napkin rings.
One Hope had their dark wines on hand, Cabernet and Merlot were the choice for this meal and I think our friends at Winterfell would be happy with that choice. The team at Colette’s Catering are big GOT fans and went all out for us! The black slate platter they used represents dragon glass, the cheeses they used each represent a character or place. The Port Wine cheese represents our favorite drunken dwarf Tyrion, the Green Sage represents Wildfire, the Ash Brie represents Castle Black and the Point ReyesBlue represents the White Walkers. Of course the sliced meats of Calabrese, Capicola and Porsciutto represent House Baratheon—and can we get a shout out for the bacon in the glassware as well?! I’d definitely let my dire wolf have a piece—gotta love Ghost!
Making the most of Stand Tall Mia’s pretty handwriting, they invited all their fave characters to sit around a table at House Stark.
The florals by The Mad Florist were one of my favorite elements. She hung an install by chains built of greens and dark burgundy leafy plants that had such gorgeous texture. Then on the table we went completely opposite and did white feathery florals to represent the North and the White Walkers. Creeping in the white arrangements were a few dark red pieces… I love the contrast between the two, something that represents the show in so many ways.
Lastly, Frost Your Cookie created a Dany-approved dragon-scaled cake. See more fun GOT party ideas in our gallery below!
