It’s time for our annual tradition- a Game of Thrones party! We were so stoked to see what was going on in all of Westeros and Essos for season 6 since most of what we would see goes past book canon, but we were most excited about the happenings at the wall. We were POSITIVE Jon Snow would return to us because I mean… R+L=J, tons of prophecies, Azor Ahai, yada yada.
Jessica is a bit pregnant right now, so we decided not to do a full-on huge themed meal. Instead we made hearty soup with crusty bread and laid out an awesome dessert spread, complete with a Weirwood. We kept the color scheme simple with black, white, and red to be fitting for Snow, blood, and the black of the night’s watch.
I created the Weirwood tree with the help of Andrew’s artistic skills. I added clear marbles to a vase to secure some sanded manzanita branches. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out dozens of red leaves and glued them on with adhesive dots. I gave Andrew the dimensions of my container and he drew the amazing face that I printed and taped on.
A few dessert plates filled with donuts, brownies, cookies, and chocolate dipped strawberries satisfied our sweet tooth.
A replica of ghost with some icy candles finished off the look!
I can’t wait to see the rest of the season so we can come up with our theme for next year’s party! I’m pretty sure it’ll have something to do with House Targaryen (maybe some secret Targaryens???) and dragons. That’s where this is all leading, right?
