I've been in LOVE with the Hunger Games series since I first picked them up last year. I've now read all 3 books twice. Since the movie came out the same weekend of my birthday... the theme was a given! Unfortunately, we were going on out of town that weekend, so the party was postponed a week, but definitely still on!
Pinterest is amazing for party planning!!! Here's my inspiration board.
I really didn't get super crafty with the party. I had all these big ideas, but ran out of time. I printed a map of Panem & a couple quotes & assembled them in frames at the end of my kitchen counter. I did cut out a stencil & paint the mockingjay....
Hubs loves working with copper & he made this tree a couple months ago. I knew it'd be perfect to display my party favors. I ordered everyone Hunger Games themed necklaces & bracelets.
The tablescape: I used a neutral floral tablecloth & layered it with burlap to add texture. Then I added pine cones & pillar candles wrapped in jute string. Everything was served in metal, wood & pottery.
The Food: Salad, "Groosling" Bites, Mocking Jay sugar cookies, Girl on Fire cake, "Nightlock" berries, and Chicken Pesto Pasta (no shown).
Here's a closer look at a sad looking & broken Mocking Jay Cookie!
Tara made the cake, but I decorated it with cookies for logs & fruit rollups for the fire!
Here's my lovely group :)
After the party, Sherry & I (right & left) went to see movie... again!!! And yes, just as awesome the 2nd time!!!
