More About This Recipe

  • The Hunger Games took the world by storm! A highly successful book trilogy by Suzanne Collins and a popular movie series, The Hunger Games is a great reason to throw a themed party in honor of this exciting story. Here are some tips for celebrating the games, Capitol style! In The Hunger Games, wealth and comfort are symbolized through the rich imagery of foods like lamb stew, orange chicken, and sweet breads. So, it's obvious that food will play a major role in your party planning. Like this great recipe for one of my favorites, Peeta's Raisin Nut Bread. Be sure to tell guests that their attendance at the Hunger Games is mandatory. Split guests into districts upon arrival to add some friendly competition to the party! Decorations go a long way to set the party scene. Go all out and bring in house plants to create a forest-feel and transform your house into the Hunger Games scene. Print off a copy of the book cover and other movie images in poster size to hang on the walls for decoration. Buy toy parachutes and attach sweet prizes to them like cookies or other treats. Scatter these parachutes around for your guests to discover during the party! If you have a fireplace, this is a must! Fire was the symbol for Peeta’s and Katniss’ costumes during the opening ceremony of the Hunger Games. For table décor like plates and tablecloths, match the color scheme with black, orange, and yellow! And what's a party without games? Host an obstacle course of games with your guests to see who will end up as the winner of your Hunger Games! Bad weather in store? Stay inside and play Hunger Games trivia. Set up “training stations” with darts, Nerf guns, knot-tying, and water guns where guests can prepare for the games! As Effie Trinket says, “Happy Hunger Games! And may the odds be ever in your favor!”
