Once again, F. Duncan Reyes Events By Design created another fabulous “Game of Thrones”-inspired Holiday Party for a very prominent corporate clientele showcasing the latest season’s fantasy drama taking it from the screen to the spectacular Redwood Room and the Velvet Room at The Clift Hotel in San Francisco. The penultimate season focuses primarily on the convergence of the show’s main plotlines, featuring major events such as Daenerys Targaryen arriving in Westeros with her army and three dragons, Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion waging war against the Lannisters; Jon Snow forging an alliance with Daenarys in an attempt to unite their forces against the White Walker army; Arya and Bran returning to Winterfell and reuniting with their sister, Sansa; and the army of the dead breaching The Wall, entering the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.
With this in mind, we transformed the Redwood and Velvet Rooms to this magnificent era replete with a Weirwood Tree (for Escort Cards), which is a species of deciduous tree found all over Westeros, that has a white bark with five-pointed, blood-red leaves and sap. The focal point of the event was the Iron Throne, a metonym referring to the monarchy that rules the Seven Kingdoms, and the authority of the monarchy.
Special KUDOS to my incredible team of “Fantasy Makers” for helping me create the Client’s holiday vision, bringing the “Game of Thrones” from reality to life!
