6 key items to celebrate Joffrey’s wedding on ‘Game of Thrones’


Here comes the beautiful bride… and her ghastly groom! In the second episode of “Game of Thrones” Season 4, King Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell finally takes place. And, as we saw with last year’s Red Wedding, anything can happen at a Westeros union.
Considering how high-stakes these nuptials are, we have a feeling something big is going to go down. So, to properly welcome the new season, you have to go big, too — with an epic wedding reception! Here are six steps to throwing a lavish party even the Lannisters would evny: 1.      Spin Some Tunes: Set the mood for the party with Rdio playlists inspired by the characters. Love to hate Joffrey? Listen to his king-ly playlist: Or try a compilation inspired by Hodor. Don’t worry — it’s not hours worth of him saying “Hodor.” 2.      2. Prepare a Feast Serve your guests a Westeros-inspired feast with recipes from “A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Companion Cookbook.” The beef and bacon pie, followed by lemon cakes, would make for meal fit
for even the discerning Lady Olenna. And for an extra sweet end to the feast, bake some Dragon Egg Cookies from SemiSweet Design. 3. Pour the Booze
All that death and destruction — not to mention the backstabbing and betrayals — go down better with a little alcohol. Throw back one of Ommegang’s “Game of Thrones”-inspired beers, like the Iron Throne Blonde Ale, Take the Black Stout, or their newest creation, Fire and Blood Red Ale (made for House Targaryen). Or sip a specialty cocktail like “The Red Wedding,” created by Bobby “G” Gleason, Beam’s master mixologist. 1 part Jacob’s Ghost(R) White Whiskey 1 part Tomato Juice Pinch Salt Pinch Sugar Dash of Tabasco(R) Hot Sauce (to taste) Dash of fresh lime juice (to taste)        Preparation: Build in mixing glass and serve in a collins glass with or without ice.        Garnish with a lime wedge or celery stick. Whether you don some leather pants, a faux fur cape, or a flowing gown, accessorize with a Hand of the King pin, house sigil nail decals, or a Pyrrha talisman necklace. 5. Decorate! Make your pad more festive by decorating in your favorite house’s colors, whether it’s grey and white for House Stark, red and gold for House Lannister, or green and gold for House Tyrell. If you want to go all out, put up these dragon wall decals, put out some house sigil coasters, and hang up art nouveau prints of the characters. 6. Make the Viewing Experience Richer With Extras – “Game of Thrones” is a complex, sprawling tale, with dozens of characters and places. It can be hard to remember all the little details. So, help your guests keep track of it all with extras like “Game of Thrones: A Pop-Up Guide to Westeros.” That way, when someone says, “Wait, where exactly is Harrenhal?” they’ll have the answer right there.
