If you're planning to celebrate today's The Hunger Games release, might we suggest a party? In this case, the fun is in the details. They may be called the Hunger Games, but nobody will go hungry with food like lamb stew with dried plums and fresh bread topped with goat cheese. Turn your home into a scene from the glamorous Capitol, and discuss what your strategies in the arena would be. For our party suggestions, keep reading.
- Light a bunch of candles to create a dark, yet glamorous ambiance.
- Play the very popular Hunger Games soundtrack in the background to create a mellow vibe.
- Give your guests perfectly themed favors, like Girl on Fire matches, and have them continue the debate of Peeta vs. Gale with their drinking straws — which you can custom make at For Your Party.
- Serve wine (even though Katniss was not impressed with it) and freshly baked bread with goat cheese to start. Follow that up with lamb stew with dried plums and a salad of bitter greens and tiny tomatoes. To close the meal, sip on hot chocolate and enjoy fresh strawberries.
