Olympics Opening Ceremony Party

8:00 AM

Two Fridays ago (I'm so behind!), we hosted some friends for an Opening Ceremony party. We decided to do this last minute, so I didn't go too crazy with decorations, but it was a lot of fun! Everyone ended up wearing Red, White & Blue which was perfect. I think this was a really great reason to throw a little party and we're definitely planning on throwing one for every Olympics. 

I was talking to one of my co-workers last week and for the next Olympics, we're definitely stealing his and his wife's party idea. For both Summer and Winter Olympics, they throw a huge party at their house. They always dress up in costume from the host country and then his wife and one of her friends assigns everyone else a country. They plan it about a month in advance so everyone has plenty of time to get their costumes together. So fun!

In honor of Russia being the host country, we decided to make White Russians...which nobody liked.

  1. Love the idea of dressing up as different countries! Did you hear about Russia spoofing themselves during the closing games? At least they have a sense of humor :) I am already looking forward to the summer Olympics!

  2. This is so adorable- especially those coke bottles! I may have to steal that idea for the fourth of July ;) Y'all really went all out!
