Olympic Themed Party Inspiration

We’re in the middle of Olympic madness over here, and I’m loving it! Seeing the athletes compete brings me such joy, and I get a kick out of seeing everyone show such patriotism for their home countries. It’s all so exciting and inspiring, don’t you think? Makes me want to celebrate! I’m so happy that we’ve still got over a week left of competition which is plenty of time to have some friends over for a fun little Olympic themed party. After all, some of the most popular events are still to come. Click through the gallery below for a few great decorations, games, and treat ideas for your Olympic gathering.
