Hunger Games Party Ideas

Happy Birthday to me!!!!!!
Who's ready for the Hunger Games movie opening?
I know the movie opens on the the 23rd, but if you're a nut
like me, and you're going to see the Midnight showing,
then your pre- PAR-TAY! will be taking place tomorrow.
I threw a Capitol Feast in honor of the Hunger Games a couple of year ago,
so I wanted to share my menu with you,
and give you some more ideas I've rounded up
to make your Hunger Games pre- PAR-TAY awesome.

If you ask my husband what the Hunger Games is about,
you'll probably get this answer,
"Oh, I'm so hungry, let's play some games."
He thinks he's so funny.
But let's be honest, if you're throwing a party,
it is all about the food :)

At my original Hunger Games Capitol Feast I served:

*soups & stews
specifically clam chowder & corn chowder
in honor of the soups & stews consumed by Katniss

I picked a yummy one out of the refrigerated section of Costco :)
But you could get fancy and whip something up.

*various breads
Bread is HUGE in the Hunger Games,
so you gotta have your carbs present to REPRESENT!

*CHEESE & grapes
It really isn't a party without a cheese platter.

*hot chocolate & rolls
Turn on that Cocoa Latte machine,
grab a bag of rolls of Costco,
and let your guests go to town.

Not only does this beverage remind me of my
darling Grandpa Meyer, but it was the
first food I thought of when I thought the Hunger Games.
Can you imagine remembering what it was like
to taste OJ for the first time?

And the piece de resistance . . . . . .

These radtastic FLAMING cupcakes by Lady Cupcake's Corner!

They look really stunning on a candlelit table.

Some things I'm considering for this year's festivities:
1. Twig Arrows 2. Effie Inspired Flower
3. Coal Necklace 4. Bookmarks

In honor of the Hunger Games and my birthday,
I have a couple gifts for you!!!

First is this fun 8x10 print.
Print it.
Frame it.
Be proud.


And the second is a rad little invite.
It was inspired by a photo I saw on Pinterest,
it only linked to a photo, so I decided to make my own!
