Hello there, children of the internet. I present to you with great excitement my labour of love for the past couple of weeks – this Game of Thrones themed birthday party. This is also the reason the blog wasn’t getting as much attention, in case you were wondering. But it was totally worth it (you’ll see!). If you’re not a Game of Thrones fan, you’ll probably roll your eyes the whole time you’re reading this post and then write me off as an imbecile. So before that happens, please close this window and let’s pretend you never saw this. Deal? Okay awesome.
However, if you’re a Throner like me (is that what we’re called or did I just make that up?), welcomeeee. Let me give you a bit of backstory before I bombard you with a bunch of photos (don’t say you weren’t warned).
It was Shehryar’s birthday last weekend and I knew I wanted to plan something kind of elaborate (by my standards) since I’m currently too broke to afford any real presents. It wasn’t difficult to come up with the idea of a Game of Thrones theme (hey, you’re never too old for a themed birthday party) because we’re both obsessed with the show and books. If you’d like to read more about that, here’s a post I did about a GoT location we visited together.
There was a whole bunch of DIY involved so I had to rope in many people in my life (mainly my mom, who is the most artsy person I know) to help out. I’ll do a series of DIY posts next week and link back to them here. And now, sparing you all the other planning details before you doze off, allow me to show you the results.
We played the Game of Thrones soundtrack when he entered although the crappy bluetooth speakers I had weren’t really loud enough for anyone to hear the music. Oh well. There was some other stuff at the entrance too, though:
The Decorations & Props
Food & Drink Puns
So what if these are needlessly cheesy. One must adhere to the theme 😉
Games (of Thrones, hehe)
Tbh, there wasn’t enough time to play either of these at the party but it was cool having them around.
And finally…there’s us
Phew that was a long post. Time to wrap it up. Bye for now!
If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Game of Thrones DIY series I’ve done, let me just say you haven’t lived (tiny exaggerations we can all live with). Here’s a list:
