The excitement for the Olympic Games is rapidly building – have you caught the Olympics fever yet? I’m always looking for reasons to throw a party, so why not invite a few friends over to watch the big games and events!? I’m going to show you all the details of our last Olympics party and then I’ll show you even more ideas from some of my favorite blogs. Take a look –
For this particular gathering, the food and snacks were the star of the show… and they were so easy to put together. Here is a close up of each fun little “dish”-
Gold Medal Oreos are a no-bake treat that can be made in minutes using just Vanilla Oreos and fruit leather.
These “Go for Gold” Pineapple muffins are delicious!!!
Watermelon Olympics Rings are a healthy treat that can be made with two different sized circle cookie cutters.
Baking cups filled with cherries are a tasty and EASY way to and add some color to the dessert table!
We served orange juice to carry out the gold medal themed refreshments for the party.
Let’s talk about decor and the FREE printables for this party!
*** We created these printables in 2012, so you might notice hints of our London Olympics celebrations. However, all printables have been updated without dates, so you can use them any year, from now until forever! ***
Red and navy ribbon, paper straws, and fabric add a little patriotic color to a table set up. Red candies can also be used throughout the party.
Frame our simple Olympics Sign for an easy touch to your table.
Our party circles look great as cupcake toppers or party favor tags! And our Gold, Silver and Bronze medals can be used in your decor (above) or as medals attached to ribbons (below).
