May the Odds Be Ever in Your Flavor

These are just a few pictures of my niece's Hunger Games themed birthday party (She's the one in the glasses, and yes, we have lots of birthdays this time of year). My sister made an awesome "last feast"-- the stew (not pictured) was soooo yummy. She and my niece planned some inventive games: building the best costume out of strange materials, popping balloons to see if they were poisonous berries or not (only six survived that one), hand-to-hand combat with ladles, and archery contests with dollar-store bow and arrows.

I was laughing the entire time. And I have tons more pictures than this, but I'm showing restraint by only spotlighting five. I love cupcakes, so her cupcake-cake was perfect to me, complete with mockingjay rings for all the party-goers (I was tempted to steal one, but I didn't. ;)

I absolutely love creative parties like this. The weather cooperated and the day was perfect!
