Happy Hunger Games!
The time has come for the premiere of the highly anticipated book turned movie: the hunger games! So of course I had to celebrate this momentous occasion with capitol couture flair by having a dinner party!
A month before the event, I sent out evites.
The main decor piece was the table which was adorned with foliage and flames, presented with pictures and posters, and sprinkled with district badges for guests to wear.

Let the Dinner Begin!
We started the night with a bag with two Hunger Games inspired Appetizers: Goat Cheese & Apple Tarts, which were one of Katniss's favorite tribute treats on the train (in the book) and Peeta (pita) bread & Chips served with spinach dip.
Dine In Style:
Our main course was simply delicious while remaining within the theme: A District 11 Fresh & Fruity Agriculture Salad, "Boy with the Bread" rolls from Peeta's Bakery and Beef & Veggie Stew, inspired by the Lamb and Plumb stew Katniss and Peeta enjoy in the book.
Finish your feast with some deliciously deadly desserts: Poison Berry Perfection's, Berries & Shortcake served with whipped creme and inspired by Fox Face's Poison Berries, Styling "Cinna" buns inspired by Katniss's Stylist: Cinna (this idea was suggested by my bestie Sheree Abate, thanks Ree!) and Girl on Fire Desserts: peaches topped with ice cream and drizzled with homemade raspberry sauce plus a sugar cube to set on fire.
Make An Impression:
Everyone came in theme by dressing as a character or embodying a district. We even had two Katniss's! Katniss and Catnip! See and learn about my outfit on Color Me Courtney!
