More Ideas for a 'Hunger Games' Party

Inspiration from Katniss, Peeta, and Gale for a fan party

• Prim’s Basil-Wrapped Goat Cheese Balls, from the Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook.

We know you're anxiously counting down the days until the Hunger Games movie release on Friday, and if you haven't already snagged The Unofficial Hunger Games Cookbook, fear not — there's plenty of inspiration on the web to host your own Hunger Games-themed party. A roundup of the best ideas:

Need to send invitations? No problem — Living Locurto's free printable invite does the work for you.

They call it the "Hunger Games" for a reason: there are recipes galore for a themed party, thanks to the tons of food references in the book. A goat cheese dip makes a good play on Prim, while another goat cheese spread with apples reminds guests of Peeta and Katniss' meal together during the Hunger Games. Also required: a bread recipe in honor of Peeta's bakery; we like the caramel-pecan monkey bread recipe for something sweet. For drinks, don't forget the OJ — Katniss had her first taste of orange juice while she was at the Capital. To add more flair, Living Locurto also offers free cupcake toppers and drink flags with HG quotes ("I volunteer as Tribute!" and "I (heart) Peeta," for example).

To make a true scene, Rock UR Party recommends creating an arena feel with potted plants to decorate, and Shelteriffic adds a Nerf archery station for guests. Party favors? Toy parachutes with cookies and treats, to play off the Districts' handouts to tributes.
