Here’s what we’re using for our party invites. If you’ve already sent out invites, the template would work as a beautiful menu. For full and in-depth instructions, check out the GoT party planning guide.

Step 1: download this image, and paste it into a Word file.

 

Step 2: Find a fancy medieval font you like on a site like Dafont.com

Step 3: Create a text box on top of the image, then write in the text of your invite.

Step 4: Save as a PDF, then print out as many copies as you need. Try printing on paper that looks like vellum, or on tea-stained printer paper.

Step 5: Add any embellishments you like, such as wax seals, burned edges, etc. The trick to burning edges is to tear them first; in this way, you can better control the burn pattern. We sent our invites out in fancy envelopes, embossed with a special pen, rubber stamp, and gold powder.

    Looks like I found the artist you commissioned this piece from. :]

    I would advise you though that if you intend to release this publicly, you should make a higher resolution image available for download. The current resolution wouldn’t do the details justice.

    Really cool idea anyway.

    Thanks for sharing this image! I predict it will see a great deal of (non-commercial) use in this house. I have you on my blogroll and love your work — I made your recipe for Honeyed Chicken the night we finally got to watch Game Of Thrones and it was a huge hit. If I can find the pictures, I plan on blogging it, and I’ll let you know!
