After three long years, Game of Thrones fans are finally being called back to Westeros. Except this time, instead of following the Starks to King's Landing and Jon Snow beyond The Wall, we're getting a front-row seat to some serious Targaryen family drama.

If HBO's new show House of the Dragon sounds thrilling now, just wait until the premiere. The epic prequel series is set 200 years before Game of Thrones during King Viserys I's rule, and it depicts the shocking events that ultimately led to a Targaryen civil war. Think questions of succession, gut-wrenching betrayals and bloody battles complete with fire-breathing dragons. (Did we mention that George R.R. Martin himself has seen all 10 episodes and declared the show "magnificent work"?) The spin-off series lands on HBO and HBO Max on August 21, but you’ll need some provisions before you check it out.

Here are 30 items to help you throw the ultimate House of the Dragon watch party whether you're gathering everyone for the premiere or the finale. Best of all? These decorations can easily be repurposed throughout your home for fall and Halloween.

Deck Out Your Space

$25.99

Declare your allegiance to House Targaryen with this scorched sigil banner. The black-and-red flag is woven from 100 percent polyester and features three aluminum grommets for easy hanging. If it were up to us, we'd snag two and flank the television to dial up the drama.

$10.98 (Set of 8)

Rumor has it that there will be plenty of knights and tournaments in House of the Dragon. Our advice? Lean into the high fantasy look with a wall of ornate visors. You can display the paper-and-elastic masks in two neat rows and create the illusion that they're "watching over" your castle.

$8.99 (Set of 24)

Cast your living room in an alluring glow with these flameless tea lights. The artificial candles can be flipped on with a switch and flicker just like fire. (Without the smoke or burning hazards.) They'll make you and your guests feel like you're in the heart of Dragonstone.

$8.99 (Set of 7)

Transform your living room into a true dragon's lair with these black wall decals. The stickers can be applied to any smooth and clean surface and will make it seem as though winged creatures are circling in the distance. One package contains seven decals.

Blackened branches just make sense for House Targaryen. Add a stylishly singed touch to your front door or mantel with this artificial wreath. Each branch is made from plastic and wire, then twisted together for one hair-raising finish.

$29.99 (Set of 3)

Prepare to be the envy of all your friends, courtesy of these jewel-toned dragon eggs. The wax candles arrive in a wooden box (much like Dany's own "children") and can be displayed separately or together. Light them when you're ready to dial up the ambiance.

Style the Table

Treat your guests to one epic feast on this glittering black agate cheese plate. Each slab is hand-hewn which allows for natural variations within the stone. Meanwhile, the rough edges are dipped in gold to ensure that they're fitting for Targaryen royalty.

$10.99 $7.36

What would a Targaryen table be without a dragon skull centerpiece? This brooding, bone-colored ornament is crafted from nontoxic resin, with jeweled eyes that seem to glow like embers. You can surround the skull with dishes to make it look like the dragon is guarding your precious treasures.

If your party could use a little more color, then drop this fiery bouquet into the nearest vessel. The arrangement consists of preserved beech leaves that have been dyed crimson red and fan out in every direction, just like flames.

Nothing says "pick your poison" like a glass skull decanter. Tempt guests with a good time and toast to the power struggles ahead using this sleek container. The more you drink, the more you reveal the crystal cranium embedded in the bottom.

$24.99

Everyone will want to get their hands on this striking cake topper. The miniature Iron Throne features hundreds of blades melted by dragon's breath and situated on a stone pedestal. Pair it with a dripping-red dessert, a smoky stand and a dozen dragon-themed cupcakes.

$49.95 $29.97

Doesn't this wine cooler look like it's carved from genuine dragonglass? Impress your guests with its magical properties (read: keeping bottles at the perfect temperature), and leave the smooth black marble cylinder on the counter for all to admire. Again, gold threads ensure that the piece is fit for Targaryen royalty.

$17.52

This bottle opener has arguably the most important job of the night. Pay homage to the King's closest advisor and keep those drinks coming with this on-theme utensil. The palm-sized replica is cast in zinc alloy, so it will patina nicely over time.

We're not sure if White Walkers will make an appearance in House of the Dragon, but it's always good to be prepared. Thrill your guests (and keep growling stomachs at bay) with this skeleton hand condiment server. The festive piece is suitable for cocktail garnishes, snacks and even ice cream toppings.

Dress the Part

From $19.12

If you know, you know. Represent your favorite house by wearing this iconic "Fire Cannot Kill A Dragon" t-shirt. The garment is woven from comfortable and lightweight spun cotton, and it's available in six sizes.

$28

Drape your sofa in Targaryen colors with this luxurious throw blanket. The cable-knit construction and tassels will lend textural appeal to your space and keep everyone comfortable during those exciting battle sequences.

$11.99

Texture is everything. Capture that fearsome Targaryen style with these "dragon scale" pillow covers. The double-sided design is made from faux leather and promises to lend an edgy touch to your sectional or favorite armchair. You can shop the pillow covers in four different sizes.

The return to Westeros is worth documenting, no? Grab your Instax Mini camera and a pack of this Stone Gray film to create a Game of Thrones-inspired photo booth. The film's slightly "tarnished" edges will perfectly complement your medieval aesthetic.
