Storm of Swords

Sunday night brought the premier of HBO's third season of Game of Thrones. Although I'm not keen on burning children or soft porn, I am keen on PARTIES and party is what I did. I am here tonight to share with you the details of our Game of Thrones watch party.

This is the set up. 

My chalkboards the best. It's been featured at birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, potlucks, office parties, and now seen again here. It resides on my mantel where it lives with its co-star, Lady Candelabra, who I picked up at an estate sale in Medford, Oklahoma, pop. 996. Who would've thought?
I was surfing the inner-web for food items pertaining to such an occasion. There were many extravagant recipes for lemon cakes and weasel soup; however, one post just told me to set out some meat and cheese. I liked her thinking. Besides, Brandon and I enjoy cheesus (it's punny. Don't worry about it), so I set up my chalkboard coasters to inform my guests just what they were eating (of course they still asked, which was a good practice in patience). Here we've got, counter clockwise, some french bread, garlic & herb cheddar, bonbel, manchego, sausage, garlic toast points, and the organismically delightful s'mores bars--the recipe for which can be found here from Amanda at Wit and Whistle.
I'm really into keeping permanent markers in the kitchen so that people can write there names on cups. The act itself, I feel, is thoughtful and courteous; however, how much I enjoy it is tilted. I offered Bran and Tyrion the first drinks as the example. We set out a pitcher of water and had a Bota Box in the fridge that we offered up.

I just wanted to give you another good look at the s'mores bars. The lantern to the right was a wedding gift from my Maid of Honor and her family.  I thought they got it from Pier One, but I didn't see it on their website. It's one of my favorite pieces.

No, I didn't take a picture of any of my guests. I swear I had guests. I swear people really do like us and eat our fancy cheese we bought from Buy For Less. And no I don't just create fake parties. I swear I don't.
