I caught Hunger Games fever over Christmas break when I read all 3 of the books in one week. So its pretty safe to say I am addicted. With the movie coming out soon I got to thinking about how fun a Hunger Games themed party could be. You could invite all your girlfriends over for dinner or lunch then head to the theater to see Katniss, Peeta, and Gale on the big screen. I am sure the “odds will be ever in your favor” when you through a smashing bash like this!
I love the simplicity of this design but it is totally perfect for your Hunger Games party. The special touch to me is the arrows that divide the invitation since Katniss’s specialty is archery. A great idea for the party is to get your friends to bring something special to the “feast” that will also help make for easy cleanup as y’all head out to the theater to see the movie!

While we are talking about food, lets talk about ways to display it. I love this Hunger Games inspired table setting with the mockingjay banner (super simple DIY project) and the setting looking like the forrest like the games are set in the books. The Clickable Party store on Etsy offers many Hunger Games print-outs and one of those is the map of Panem that is display at the center of this table, to make you feel like you are really in the districts of Panem.

How cute are these mockingjay cookies? Perfect for your little get together and you could also smuggle them into the theater (I won’t tell!) They are just sugar cookies with yellow icing and the black mockingjay piped out with icing. Super easy and delicious. Other Hunger Games themed foods might include,Peeta’s Cheese Buns, Capitol Pumpkin Soup, or Prim’s Basil Wrapped Goat Cheese, all of these recipes you can find on Hungry for Hunger Games, a youtube account dedicated to making recipes related to the Hunger Games!

For a little fun before you head out to see the movie, what about a Hunger Games board game? This game was made for teachers using it to teach in schools but the fun trivia and other facts could be a fun game for those die-hard Hunger Games fans. Another idea would be to use this link to Hunger Games trivia questions to ask while y’all sit around the table eating dinner. Maybe the winner gets a special Hunger Games themed trinket, maybe a mockingjay pin! (via TeachersPayTeachers)
