How To Choose Props For A Successful Game Of Thrones Party

July 18, 2017

If you love the Game of Thrones series, why not organise a Game of Thrones theme party or corporate event where guests come as their favourite character from the medieval fantasy show.

Suitable Game of Thrones props hark back to a time in history which everything was handmade, either by master craftspeople or homemade.

Some of the most appropriate prop materials for Game of Thrones parties include such timeless materials as burnished gold, silver, copper, iron, zinc, tin or black finish metals, slate, chunky wood, hessian, linen, brown kraft paper, fur, and animal skins.

Game of Thrones style furniture
This is where you need lots of rustic wooden tables, benches and Bentwood chairs for communal dining indoors, and pallet furniture for outdoors. Display a bounty of food on a rustic country wooden cart and your cakes on a three-tiered birch cake stand.

Guest of Thrones guest seating plans
Order a wooden or metal easel for your seating plan.

Why not place your guests on tables of the noble houses - including but not limited to Stark, Arryn, Baratheon, Tully, Greyjoy, Lannister, Tyrell, Martell, Targaryen, Bolton, Mormont, Forrester and Frey. 

Game of Thrones style centrepieces
Choose hammered copper bowls for short foliage or dried flower displays (if fresh "winter is coming" flowers are hard to come by!), copper candlesticks, black candelabras, wooden tree slices, and moss table runners.

Game of Thrones style soft furnishings
Add faux fur throws or cushions with damask fabrics and gold trimming to soften hard benches, cowskin hides for flagstone floors and velvet drapes to keep out the cold. 

Game of Thrones style lighting
Candles, candles and more candles the better!

Think chunky pillar candles, a grouping of melted wax style LED candles, slender taper candles, honeycomb pattern beeswax candles and real long-burning tealight candles or faux votives.

Towering iron candelabras, antler chandeliers, rustic wooden lanterns and candles in the fireplace or above on the mantel are perfect.
