Game of thrones party

Last sunday aired the first episode of season 3 Game of Thrones, and I must say, I was a tad bit disappointed up until the very end. I won’t spoil it for those of you that have yet to catch up on it. I personally highly recommend waiting for the next few episodes to come out and watch it all at once. While the show was more or less a dud in my opinion, my Game of Thrones party however, was a successful one — thanks in parts to all of my friends who came and also brought along some awesome side dishes and desserts.

Here are some photos of the feast that was served the night of the premier party. I had originally planned a pretty simple menu, but on the day of the party I got a final head count and realized how many people were going to show up, I had to add a few more menu items. Not in picture: Night’s Watch frozen hot chocolate (which was something like a milk shake but with brownie bits), and Littlefinger’s tiramisu (thanks Busaba).

Our menu:
The Imp shrimp cocktail
Flaming (and non-flaming) dragon wings
The Iron Crown roasted tenderloin in rosemary and sage rub with prosciutto
Jon Snow peas
Wildlings wild rice pilaf
Night’s Watch frozen hot chocolate
Littlefinger’s tiramisu
Fresh rosemary bread

Additional menu items:
Mixed steamed veggies
Mashed potatoes with bacon
Cheese and crackers
Mixed fruits

Enjoy and let me know how you celebrated!

Game of Thrones S3 Premier Viewing Party

I am so excited for the SEASON 3 of Game of Thrones! My friend Jena and I are both absolutely obsessed with the show, we are so obsessed that we had thought about planning a GOT preview party since LAST year!

This year I am taking the initiative in planning out the menu. We had initially wanted our guests to dress up as their favorite GOT character for this preview party, but knowing how burdensome that could be for last minute guests who just wants to show up and watch the show at the party, I’ve decided that it should be *optional*.

For the party, I didn’t want to go for a overly complicated menu because 1) execution will be difficult — I don’t want to slave away in the kitchen and not enjoy the party, 2) I need a menu with items that I can make (or purchase) ahead of time, and 3) food is not the focal of the night, the show is, and I needed to make sure it will compliment the theme.

Here’s our menu for our GOT preview party… I also got the inspiration from here.

Let me know what you think!
