Just 9 more days until the kick-off of the Olympics!! Throw a backyard event either on the day of the Opening Ceremony (July 27th) or any time during the Olympics! I personally love the Opening Ceremonies because it is usually such an amazing show and it involves every athlete competing in the Games. It's also when the final bearer of the Olympic Torch lights the cauldron that stays lit for the duration of th games.
Decorate your party space with lots of American Flags. For your table settings, be sure and use accents of red, white and blue in honor of TEAM USA!! Wrap your silverware in our red and white grosgrain napkin rings.
Since the games are in London, serve up festive foods from the U.K., like fish & chips or mini cucumber & mayo sandwiches. For your drinks, serve up traditional ales lik Newcastle or Boddingtons and for cocktails serve up Earl Grey Martinis.
Let the games begin! A trivia contest is always fun for this occasion or create your own Olympic games like balancing an egg on a spoon or see who can Limbo the lowest...Have fun with this one! The more ridiculous the game the more fun everyone will have!!!
