A fun theme party with music, food, party supplies, and games can include an Olympics style theme. Singing, dancing and having a great time with family and friends is what most celebrations are supposed to be like. Therefore, finding the right melodies and tunes for those special events is very important. From rock and country to jazz and blues, getting together with friends and celebrating great times or special events will make your event very popular. Have children participate in Olympic games and award gold, silver, and bronze medals for participants. Create an Olympic style banner, by either drawing it on a large sheet of paper or using colored hula-hoops taped together. Include Olympic songs and themes to create the Olympic experience for the party guests. Use songs and themes from Olympic soundtracks from previous Olympic Games (Beijing, Athens, and Sydney).

Go for the gold when baking your next Olympic theme birthday party cake! This fast paced celebration is the ideal time for creative desserts and other party foods designed especially for this celebration. These items are always a great addition to a celebration and most often fun like cakes that are designed especially for this celebration will make everyone feel very special. More often than not, these great party foods and desserts will add a lot of fun to the celebrated event. For this, you will need a few baking tools for the cake as well as a few party supplies to provide decoration around the finished cake. Baking supplies include a round cake pan the size you want each ring, a cutting knife and icing.

Bake five cakes to represent the five rings of the USA Olympic symbol. After the cakes have cooled, select a large bowl that leaves about a 5-6 inch boarder when placed in the middle of the cake. Cut out the center of each round cake and place the scrap cake to the side for future use.

Taking the first cake ring, cut out slices 5-6 inch slices where the other ring will connect and slide the next ring in. Keep doing this until all the Olympic rings are connected. Ice the rings according to their color once you have it in the place you need it (keep in mind you will not be able to move it after icing.)

Finally, use the scrap cake to create the letters USA to place at the top or the bottom of the rings. You can also make an Olympic podium for an added touch and ice them accordingly. This touch will add a lot to the celebration.

In the summertime an Olympics themed party can be just the ticket to get your family active and moving rather than sitting in front of the television all day. From making a guest list to preparing the food, having a plan will make the celebration go off without a hitch. Simple hostess tip: Prepare for the entire celebration in advance and avoid adding any extra commitments or stress on the hostess during the preparation period. This simple tip will ensure that the hostess has a stress free and very entertaining time during the actual celebration. You can use the idea of a party to get everyone interested and the Olympics theme to get everyone involved in some fun active sports. You can even set up a buffet table for in between the sports so the family can refresh themselves.

If you plan on inviting extended family and friends to the party go ahead and send out Olympics themed party invitations. You can call the event after your own family’s surname, so it could be called, The Harris Family Olympics. These Olympics are easy to decorate for. Try stringing up bright yellow streamers all over the party area. You can pick up wall hangings and Olympic posters to stick on the walls and hopefully provide inspiration for the family.

Some Olympic activities you can put together are the 100 meter dash, a relay race, wrestling, jump rope, double Dutch, tennis, volleyball, basketball and even more. The list is pretty much endless; as long as you have the room and the equipment you can turn any sport into a family Olympic game. After each game or every three games or so you can have an award ceremony and give out bronze, gold and silver medals to the winners of the matches. Make these medals out of chocolate and wrapped in different colored foils and your family will be chomping merrily away after the games. In order to make it fair you can create a rule that keeps people who’ve already won an award from being able to take part in further games.

Make up goodie bags for everyone to take home after these sports party games are over. Put in stickers, tattoos, pencils and pens.
