This weekend my friends and I had our Hunger Games party. I made 12 different types of breads to represent 12 different districts. I made a few fun Hunger Games banners using this font and hung a bunch of silver parachutes from the lights (I’ll be sharing the tutorial for that soon). Oh and yes that’s charcoal on the table. Costumes were encouraged, doesn’t Daniel make a lovely Haymitch?
Heidi was reaping Katniss, awesome right? I was Venia complete with gold “tatoos”. And Linda came as another Katniss complete with a gigantic bow, arrows, color appropriate back pack filled with the stuff that Katniss’s area back pack came with. Umm yeah awesome right?
We also had the male tribute from District 5 and Effie. There was a Prim, Buttercup the cat, a daisy, two Mutts and for a short period Lady the goat.The music maker was Foxface you can see his shirt below (it said Foxface on the back) and he kept on joking that he was just going to sneak into the party grab food and sneak out.
Heidi made this beautiful flaming cake, I was supposed to have a sterno but I kind of forgot to we resorted to a tea light. I made some sugar cookies in the shape of Katniss’s kills -bunnies and squirrels.
My sister made these awesome Fruit Cornucopias. And the silver in the background are some adorable parachute party favors that Heidi made. We also had Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls that I pretended were groosling balls, “Lamb” and Dried Plum Stew with Wild Rice, Katniss’s roasted roots (white and sweet potatoes), Cheeses of all sorts of course courtesy of Prim’s Goat and crackers.
I had a cookie decorating station so that everyone could practice their Peeta style camouflage cookie decorating. That was a hit with the kiddos. Heidi made these cute awards for the costumes.
I also had a weapon’s making station with odd and ends and old packaging material where everyone could create deadly tools to use in the arena.
And I put out a scrabble board with “The Hunger Games” on it and throughout the night people added other Hunger Games words. Oh yes I made the naughties Mutts. They asked if it said “I love the Hunger Games” and I said, yeah something like that. It was so much fun!
