Are you a girl who loves the Hunger Games and want to throw a party based on it? This article will show you how to throw a Hunger Games themed party!

Part 1
Inviting the Guests

  1. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 1
    Send an invitation. Send it to either 24 girls (2 per district) or 12 girls (1 per district). Make it seem cool, and like it's actually from the Capitol. Look below for the list of items you will need.
  2. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 2
    Make sure you include the guests' districts in the invite. If you will have 2 per district make sure you pair up girls randomly. Your partner will be paired randomly as well. This way, things will seem more fair and no one will complain about how they didn't get paired with their friend because almost everyone else didn't get paired with their friends, too. You can get pins and put each person's district on it, and if you do, make sure they wear it from arrival to the end of the games. This way people won't be confused and ask each other something like, "Wait, are you from District 4 again?"
  3. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 3
    Set up your party. You will need 4 different rooms:
    • Dining Hall: fancy dining room your guests will be at right at arrival, dinner, and breakfast.
    • Training Center: where your guests will prepare for the games.
    • Arena: where your guests will play the Hunger Games.
    • Sleeping room: where your guests will be sleeping.
    • You may want to add additional rooms. The next sections will show you how to set up your rooms.

Part 2
Preparing the Dining Hall

  1. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 4
    Set up the Dining Hall. The Dining Hall is a long table for all the tributes to eat at and a very important room at the party. Use a dining room as the Dining Hall (if you have one), as it would be best for use.
  2. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 5
    Be sure to have something to conceal the room (including doors and curtains) so it seems as if you actually were in the Capitol at the time. Put luxurious things like sofas and plush chairs , again, for that Capitol feel. You can leave an open area (where the guests arrive at) so it's easier to get in. However, if there is another section that leaves to the kitchen, living room, etc, add curtains/close the door.
  3. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 6
    Make sure you have multiple food choices. It could be a buffet, or you could give them a menu and they can order. This way someone can chow down on something they like instead of nibble on something they think is absolutely gross. Be sure to also have desserts, like cupcakes or ice cream. You could have a glass bowl with peppermints in them, because after a yummy meal, your breath could get a little stinky, and enforce a rule to eat one. Make the decorations very formal and fancy, and to spice it up, serve drinks in a glass (or plastic look-alike) and add lemon to the water.
  4. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 7
    Set up the Training Center. This room must be a little bigger than usual. Most people use their garages because of their size and their look. If you are using your garage, be sure to clear out the cars. Get a teacher to train your guests on how to use a Nerf gun, water gun (only use on warm summer nights so the guests won't get cold), tag ball (soft ball that must touch someone in order to get them out, not counting the beholder of the tag ball) and flashlight. You may practice using your water/Nerf gun on targets, and your flashlight or tag ball.

Part 3
Creating the Arena

  1. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 8
    Set up the room outside. It is best to do it in your backyard or around your block so anyone can go inside and treat any injuries they get, if they get them. If your backyard is small, ask one of your friends with a large backyard if they could use it.
  2. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 9
    Get 12/24 hula hoops to put in your backyard lined up and place some sort of Cornucopia near it. Around the Cornucopia, place different backpacks with supplies such as Nerf guns, water guns, tag balls, binoculars, camouflage capes, and bigger flashlights. Be sure to get a bucket filled with water, in case someone needs to refill their water gun.
  3. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 10
    Be sure to set up traps and treasure. The traps will "kill" a tribute (unless they somehow escape) and they can be any type of trap you want, just nothing that could actually hurt them. You can also set up treasure, such as putting a box by a tree and placing something valuable in it (something the tributes couldn't get in Cornucopia.
  4. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 11
    Prepare the camouflage. Get tons of bottles sealed with a cork, get a piece of tape or something to put on it, and write "Medicine." Write it a little sloppily, and slightly dirty the bottle. There will be from 1-5 stickers on the inside. Each sticker will represent an extra life they have, thanks to the medicine. You will need at least 10 bottles, and the max is 30. Have the trainer in the Training Center explain everything about the medicine to people.
  5. 5
    Play a sponsor parachute game. Make some silver paper parachutes with a bit of weight on the end. Have a box with each district number on it. Have each of your guests take it in turns to throw a sponsor parachute at and whichever box it lands in or around, gets the sponsor. Each tribute can have 3 to 4 turns. The district with the most sponsors wins a prize.

Part 4
Preparing the Sleeping Room

  1. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 12
    Make sure the sleeping room is nice and comfortable.
    • Be sure to include a bathroom in the sleeping room, so people can use the bathroom if they need to, wash their hands, and take showers without having to run upstairs to use the restroom.
  2. Image titled Throw a Hunger Games Party (Girls) Step 13
    Have snacks and drinks for your guests to eat so they won't get hungry and thirsty. Even if you provide juice and soda, be sure to have water too.
    • Make Cornucopia snacks. Take some wafer ice cream cones and fill them with small fruit pieces and candies. Lay out on a large plate.
    • Make Night lock pie. Make one pie for each tribute. Fill all but one with strawberry or raspberry or apple filling, fill the one with blueberry filling (pretending it's night lock). Whomever gets the night lock pie has to pretend to die.

    Decorate the room. You can decorate it however you want.

Sample Invitation

Sample Hunger Games Invitation


  • If you think everyone will get dirty while playing, be sure to have them bring shampoo, towels. and additional shower supplies (such as a razor and shower gel).
  • Have guests make friends with "sponsors" (any parent or home owner will do, usually the more the merrier, but one or two generous hosts are sometimes good enough) the night before the games. Sponsors could provide anything from protein bars, sports drinks, candy and medicine to fort building material and tips on who they need to keep an eye out for. Evil male siblings can cover as game makers and add extra zest if there is any rivalry amongst him and his sister the hostess..
  • Ask guests to put their phones into a jar on arrival.
  • Use a proper invitation, one that looks as if it has been manufactured and sent by the capitol. Do not text or email it.
  • Use a randomizer to put the people in districts.

Things You'll Need
