Stuck trying to think of a Halloween party theme? How about a medieval-inspired one? Think knights, kings, queens, banners, chalices, and Game of Thrones. That’s right, take the best TV show and turn it into a smashing party everyone will remember—inside the perfect castle: your garage.

A Quick Medieval History Lesson

The medieval period, also known as the Middle Ages, spanned between the late 5th century and the beginning of the 14th century. Cathedrals were the most common architecture around Europe. Elaborate masonry, arches, and minimal windows were also very common during this time.

During this period, kings, queens, and lords ruled the people. Peasants were the labourers while knights rode in battle with shining armour and swords.

Get the picture? Now let’s start decorating.

DIY House Banners

Separate your garage with banners. Just like in Game of Thrones, each family has their own “house,” so create a banner for every family you invited. Here’s a great DIY tutorial on how to create your own medieval banner out of tablecloths.

DIY Chandeliers and Torches

During the medieval times, since the elaborate cathedrals and structures had minimal natural light, torches and chandeliers were common. Make your own out of tissue paper and construction paper.

Keep modern lighting to a minimum and opt for candles instead. The flicker of a candle gives a more eerie feel.
