2. Dress code = cosplay:

Here are a couple complete tutorials on how to look like two of my favorites: the Hound and of course the multifaceted and ever-lovely Daenerys Targaryen. Let your guests vote for the best costume.

3. For the queens and kings of the kitchens:

Cook up a feast for the crows with these authentic Westerosi recipes from I suggest the Dothraki goat with sweetgrass, firepods and honey and honeycakes with blackberries and nuts.

4. Pair the goat and honeycakes with a Westerosi vintage:

like a Dornish Red or Arbor Gold, the only thing Tyrion and Cercei Lannister could agree on:

6. A little competitive spirit is bound to make your guests thirsty.

This concoction known as "the Kingslayer" from will even the score, hands down.

7. For the designated drivers / Dothraki riders:

Make sure you have some delightful non-alcoholic Westerosi beverages on hand (try Fountain of the Faceless Men, Winterfell Springs, Weirwood Sap, and Tears of Lys):

9. Make sure your guests snack on...

some delectable, non-poisonous honeyed locusts and dragonfire roasted corn (siracha popcorn) while enjoying the spectacle. You can download the printable popcorn bag template and print it out at home.

11. (Bonus tip!) A proper King's Landing affair would not be complete without

King's Landing Lemon Cake, which as we all know is Sansa Stark's favorite food. Lastly, finish the party off (not GRRM style) with Lord Frey's Red velvet cakes. Print out these cupcake wrappers and flags to complete the look.
