Throw the Game of Thrones Viewing Party of Your Dreams

After over an entire year of anticipation, the agony of waiting will end this Sunday, July 16, when Game of Thrones premieres its seventh season. Since releasing their first teaser back in March, it’s been all the buzz at the office. Questions about who will take the throne, what will become of Cersai, and, most importantly, how hot will Jon Snow look, have been the main topics of water cooler conversation around here. All over the world people will be tuning in and hosting viewing parties for fellow fans — here’s how to throw the GoT viewing party of every super fan’s dreams.


Winter is coming… WINTER IS HERE!

First tip: cupcake toppers with the sigils of the different houses of GoT. To create these toppers, draw the symbols of the houses, use an X-ACTO knife to trim them out, and mount them on card stock. Attach them to toothpicks using hot glue or tape. Which house are you rooting for?

Next tip, and my personal fav, is a backdrop to take pictures in front of. Backdrops are a super fun, easy way to spice up your party! Typically, it can be hard to find letter mylar balloons in a variety of colors, so these were originally gold and we spray painted them light blue.

Adding the Grabo Dragon Balloons ($8) created a fun 3D element. We spray painted them gold to match our color palette and put construction paper flames over the original flames (which were lackluster) coming from the dragons’ mouths.

Wildfire, anyone? Serve these wildfire-inspired cocktails at your party. To make these bright green drinks, add one shot of vodka, one shot Midori Melon Liqueur, and a dash of simple syrup to club soda.

Cheers to winter fiiiiiiinally being here! :)

Make your pals gold crowns inspired by the King’s crown to wear or fight over! ;) We used gold construction paper and pipe cleaner to make ours.

At last, the guest of honor has arrived! JON SNOW!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
