Game of Thrones

Between Game of Thrones beers and Westeros-inspired spreads, you'll have plenty to choose from for a Lannister or Stark-themed bash.

Mad Men

Celebrating Mad Men is easy: No food, just booze. Drink straight up scotch if you can handle it! A Manhattan cocktail would also be a great choice. Or if you'd like to incorporate some food, grab some oysters if you're feeling fancy.

Orange is the New Black

Since no one is going to want prison food at a party, maybe just hold a contest to see who can get most creative with a Cup of Noodles? Otherwise, Vee's cake from season 2 looked pretty good and most likely only requires a boxed funfetti mix.

True Detective

Serious Eats recommends seed-filled foods like bread sticks to match the show's "seedy" qualities. Pesto pasta also works to pay tribute to the "green-eared spaghetti monster."

House of Cards

What better way to celebrate the character of Frank Underwood than with ribs that emulate Freddy's? Order in ribs or prepare them yourself!

Downton Abbey

If you're not in the mood to throw a glamorous ball, then tea will do just fine for a Downton Abbey fan. Alternatively, bootlegged liquor and jazz will work too.

Love Scandal? Enjoy red wine and popcorn, just like Kerry Washington's indefatigable Olivia Pope is frequently seen eating in her living room.

Pay homage to Girls by throwing your viewing party in the bath while enjoying cupcakes.

Modern Family

Since many of the hilarious scenes in the show take place in the kitchen, you really can't go wrong with a big home cooked meal and a lot of hijinks. Consider serving Good Humor ice cream.
