I have been amazed again and again at the Hunger Games movies. I always want the movies to turn out the way I see them in my head and for once a series has been able to do that. The Hunger Games movies have been breathtaking and fantastic. This year we wanted to hold a party to celebrate the last movie, which happened to coincide with my sister’s 13th birthday, so it kind of turned into a party for her.
When I started party planning, my 6-year-old thought it was completely unfair that last year the baby got to dress up as Katniss and declared this year her turn. I was all too happy to oblige! At 6 she is still too young to enjoy the Hunger Games with me, but I am confident she is going to love both the books and the movies when she is older.
I have been considering a Hunger Games Ice Cream bar over the last few months and I decided to go for it. I can’t lie, in my Hunger Games excitement, I may have gotten kind of pun-y, but you honestly can’t tell me you would rather eat a Peanut Butter Cup than a Peeta Butter Cup, can you?
One of the fun things about this party, was that the ice cream puns branch across all four movies, which I thought was a fitting way to celebrate the last movie. On one side of the table we had deadly Nightlock Berries (raspberries), Peeta Butter Cups and Cornucopias (ice cream cones.)
Every Hunger Games party needs weapons (silverware) to eat Prim’s Goat Cream (Ice Cream) with. You can top your Goat Cream with Tracker Jacker Venom (Caramel) or President Snow Topping (whipped cream.)
If you are feeling like your ice cream isn’t sweet enough, add some Cinna-Mon sugar or some Kit Katniss pieces.
For the ultra sweet tooth we have Beetee’s Wires (Pull n’ Peel Licorice) Pan-M&Ms and Cap-itols (Bottle Caps.)
If you are looking to take your ice cream over the top, why not add a sprinkling of Effie’s Trinkets?
I wasn’t sure if I had gone over board, but listening to the girls giggle as they read all of the titles made it so much fun. They had a blast building their ice cream sundaes!
This last craft was my favorite. We made a simple melted crayon canvas, using a blow dryer, and then we added the black Mockingjay in vinyl over top of it. I had to make one of these for myself I liked it so much!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 will be in a theater near you this weekend, November 20th. Get your tickets now so you can be there on opening weekend with me!

Erin Shebish says
Ah, this is so awesome! I cannot wait to catch the latest movie!
I just finally watched Mockingjay Part 1 last week and I'll admit I'm curious how it'll all end. (Never read the books.) I think you're ice cream bar was spot-on with the puns and adore all the little touches. All that's missing was maybe some cotton candy for Stanley Tucci's hair 😉 (See, I can't even remember his character's name)

I love the movie-themed edibles that you had. I want to see the Mockingjay Part 2 movie…I've been watching all of the installments. At first, I was trying to read the books before watching the movies, but that didn't work out.
Looks like such a fun party! I'm sure the girls totally enjoyed it! <3
