The Hunger Games. As more trailers and images are released, we can’t help ourselves from
diving into the world Suzanne Collins created—and now we want you to join the
party! Deck yourself out in zany Capitol fashions, hop in your hovercraft and
hunker down with your hunnies for an evening of over-the-top fun.
Less than 24 days remain until the big screen release of
spring’s most anticipated movie,
Request your pals’ presence with an oh-so elegant digital
invitation: “In celebration of the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Capitol
Couture requests your presence for a frippery-filled slumber party. We await
your RSVP by jabberjay!”
Set the scene
As we see throughout the series, the Capitol basks in all
things beautiful, over-the-top and trendy. Go all out by making your party
space into a vibrant lounge bedecked with bright colors and glittery jewels.
Cover lampshades with colorful scarves and bedazzle disposable plastic glasses
and plates with rhinestones and sequins.
Sweet treats (and gaudy eats)
When Katniss and Peeta attend the Capitol party prior to the
Quarter Quell, they are amazed by the abundance of indulgent goodies. Pamper
your pals with a spread fit for Capitol-ites by dressing up standard slumber
party fare. Wrap cocktail hotdogs in crescent rolls and bake until golden
brown. Use a melonballer to scoop elegant shapes from fruit (or candy-colored
sorbet—yum!). Dip strawberries in chocolate and then roll in sprinkles. Bake
off a batch of sugar cookies and learn how to pipe like a pro. Just don’t get a
Each of the tributes is allowed to bring one item with them
into the Hunger Games arena, a lucky charm. Katniss brings a mockingjay pin. Because
the inhabitants of the Capitol live for the excitement of the annual Games,
we’re sure there are crafting parties aplenty (or at least lucky charm
boutiques!) catering to the creation of custom lucky charms. Head to Michael’s
and grab the fixings for bracelets, necklaces, pins and earrings. Then go wild!
Ask your girls to set their own Capitol trends. Have ‘em
bring their outfits along and spend an hour getting gussied up together. Stock
a bathroom with inexpensive beauty boosters: eyeliner in kooky colors, stick-on
rhinestones, feathered false lashes—anything that you’d normally never wear. Then get ready to strut your stuff. Be sure to
snap some runway-worthy shots (and a few candids, too).
