Winter may not exactly be coming, but the time when people say “Winter is coming” is coming. Season five of A Game of Thrones is now officially underway, and after hearing about some seriously lackluster premiere party themes, it’s clear something needs to be done. There are endless creative food possibilities in the land of Westeros, so it’s disappointing to find out what people actually came up with. A Game Of Cones party with ice cream cones? Is that the best you can do? Surely this must be a mummer’s farce.
Since it’s obviously too late to help with a premiere party, and nobody really has big themed parties throughout the season, consider this a primer for the finale. There’s more than enough time to make this right and come up with a better theme for your Game of Thrones finale party. To help get started, here are Ten Game Of Thrones Finale Party Themes.
10. A Game of Calzones
Pizza is too obvious. Pasta is too messy. A Game of Calzones is perfect. If you don't know that you're playing, you've already lost.
9. A Meringue of Thrones
Lemon. Lime. Chocolate. Doesn't matter what flavor. When you play the Meringue of Thrones, you win or you die.
8. George R.R. Martinis
Martinis for everyone. To really get the full George R.R. Martin effect, though, make sure you take a really long time to make your guests another one. A good strategy is to release only the beginning of a martini just to keep your guests temporarily satisfied.
7. You Know Nothing Jon Snowcones
Everybody gets snowcones. But first they must pledge their life to the Night's Watch.
6. Raisin Bran Stark
Watch the finale in the morning, and everybody gets a hearty bowl of Raisin Bran.
5. The Kale Of Arryn
Make kale smoothies for your guests. And if anybody objects, throw them out the Moon Door.
4. The Bread Wedding
Pretty self-explanatory. Just don't invite any Freys.
3. The Seven Kingdoms Of Pestoros
Seven dishes that feature pesto and represent each of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
2. Daenarys Tacogaryen
Tacos with dragon fruit salsa.
1. A Tong Of Rice And Breyers
Serve your guests rice and Breyers ice cream, but only allow them to eat it with a pair of tongs. Your guests may not like it, but they will admire your commitment to food puns.
So there you have it. Ten ideas to get you started on your way to a fun and creative Game of Thrones finale party. What you do now is up to you. But remember, words are wind.
