Set up for a Hunger Games Birthday Party

As most Hunger Games fans know, the premiere of the movie is this Friday. We at the Madison family household are beyond excited. My daughter introduced me to the books over a year ago and since I've read them, she's convinced my husband, my mother, her cousin and her reading teacher to read them too. Great books, but the book club discussion is not a part of this blog post.

It's about my daughter's birthday party. Her birthday is on the 26th of March and since the premiere of the movie fell so close, we decided to have a Hunger Games birthday theme. I designed the invitation a few months ago, using some modern looking arrows and a mix of old and modern fonts (I think of Hunger Games as being a bit steam punk-ish). The colors were black and white with pops of neon color. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it but I really, really did!
Cupcake toppers as arrows

The Tesserae Game jar

Some of the neon colored drinks with custom.

Food tags

So food is not in place in these photos, of course, but you can get the gist of the event from our set-up. The party fun will be making hair accessories with feathers and painting nails neon. We will play a game of Tesserae Trivia too. Every girl gets her name in the jar 3 times, and adds her name every time she answers a Hunger Games trivia question correctly. At the end of the night, we'll draw a name from the jar and the winner gets a prize (not a death match). Then they will make movie snacks to take to the theater after dinner and have a sleep over when the movie is over.

The invitation is as an evite and printable invitation at Pingg and the party printables are available at my etsy store.

Mad props to Jen Clawson from Two Chicks Who Cater for letting me use and eat her yummy coconut cupcakes!

I don't know who is looking forward to it more, me or my daughter!
