Hello dear ones! Today I’m reviewing the Dating Diva’s Hunger Games date night. I gave it the “Amber touch”. This date was perfect paired with Catching Fire, the second movie in the Hunger Games trilogy. You can find all the printables here: http://www.thedatingdivas.com/just-the-two-of-us/hunger-games-catching-fire-dinner-and-a-movie/
I really liked the second movie because it felt truer to the books. Catching Fire showed the evil of the Capitol. The games weren’t as glamorous. Okay, so this date night wasn’t anti-games at all. Chris and I went to war ;). But it was all in good fun.
First, I had to add my touch by putting together my Katniss outfit. It’s not quite like her’s but it works. I donned a leather jacket, boots, and I braided my hair. I set the scene with a cornucopia in the arena. I didn’t have much to work with…literally a basket, a plastic cloth, and Annabelle’s baby pen. I filled the cornucopia with our “weapons” for the “games”.
I met Chris at the door in my outift, with Hunger Games music, and said “Welcome to the 75th annual Hunger Games. May the odds ever be in your favor!”
We took the Hunger Games quiz and put our names in the reaping cup for every time we missed an answer. Our names were in the cup several times so we were destined to be in the games. We had a nice feast on the way to the “Capitol”. We started the movie then paused it half way to go to the “arena”. The games included: Career Dodge Grenade, Tracker Jacker Tag, Camoflauge Cookies, Nerf Gun Wars, & a Knot Tying Competition.
We had a blast. My favorite game was Tracker Jacker Tag. I don’t want to spoil anything for you but I will share this one game. We each had stickers for Tracker Jacker stings. We set a timer and played tag. Chris won for sure as you can see in the picture. We laughed so much. What a creative idea. Thank you Dating Divas for another awesome date!
God bless & remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
