Hunger Games Party Ideas and Printables

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 :)

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*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.

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 8×10 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!

  5. Hello! I work in a library for college students, and am hosting a Hunger Games party this Thursday. Would it be OK if I used your printable downloads for it? I will make sure to post your name and website next to them!

  6. absolutely feel free to share!

  7. Adorable stuff! Wondering if you have the “invitation” without the date and info? I’d love to use it for my daughter’s upcoming Hunger Games themed birthday party.

    Feel free to email me at morgasmom2000 at gmail dot com.

    Thank you!

  8. i am planning a surprise party for my friends birthday any ideas. (P.S we both are obsessed with the hunger games)
    (P.P.S its in 2 days and it can’t be really expensive because we are just teenagers)

  9. Hi there, my daughter and I love your ideas! Any chance you can tell me how you did the flames on the cupcakes? I started searching for a candy mold but I haven’t found anything remotely similar!
    Thank you!

  10. Marianne,
    this was a guest post. It looks like she mentioned that the cupcakes are by another person she includes the link. Just look above the first cupcake picture.
    hope that helps

  11. was wanting to use this invite do you have a format I can use and change the date and time? thanks,
