Hello! I'm Kyla and I'm the OCD mind behind Funky PolkaDot Giraffe.
I'm so excited to be here guesting at Marissa's blog, and grateful to the Hunger Games for bringing us together!My birthday is March 21st - the day before 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 on March 22nd. I've already thrown one Capitol Feast in honor of the Hunger Games, 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 :)
*soups & stews specifically clam chowder & corn chowder in honor of the soups & stews consumed by Katniss*salad 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. *ORANGE JUICE 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? Yummy! 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.
