Let The Games Begin
It is finally time for the games to begin and we are ready!
By simply printing some flags and attaching them to the table cover we create an Olympic feel
Not all countries are represented, but you can challenge your guests to guess the flags.
The rest of it was put together with some readily available products.
The rings were created with Styrofoam wreath forms and covered with crepe paper and attached to them to the wall with double stick tape.
They are eye catching and set the mood immediately.
For the edible torches, we used ice cream cones and filled them with Cheetos.
These are easy to grab and go, so that your guests can sit and watch the main event.
Did you notice the podium?
Sitting atop the medal stand is decadent award winning cheesecake!
Winning gold for sure!
Maybe these caught your eye…
Our fun torches at the center of our stand were created with a snow cone paper roll and colored tissue paper.
Safe for the kiddos to play with and a fun look to add to the decor.
To add an extra bit of interest you can stick a balloon light in the center of the tissue to really make the flame come alive.
USA all the way… We added red, white and blue popcorn to colorful cupcake holders and of course placed them in a ring.
Now all is taken care of except the medals and for that we made them pretty sweet.
A package of vanilla Oreos and some Fruit By The Foot and you have pure gold!
All of these ideas are simple and fun and will get everybody into the spirit of the games.
I hope you have as much fun as I did making these treats.
Enjoy the games and GO USA!
