Host an Olympic Games Home Viewing Party!

Olympic Games Viewing Party: Ideas for Food, Drinks, and Decorations! You might have seen my mini gold medal cakes earlier this week, and now I’m back to share another gold medal moment and some Olympic Games viewing party inspiration. Coca-Cola, a worldwide sponsor of the Olympic Movement for more than 80 years, is helping us recognize and shine a light on our own gold medal moments. Whether it’s something small you’re celebrating or a major accomplishment, it’s your #ThatsGold moment! Are you ready for another gold medal moment of mine?

As the resident hostess around here, you might imagine I host grand “Pinterest-worthy” parties every single day, but you’d be wrong. I do love to entertain, obviously, but we just moved into a new house several months ago. I’ve been knee deep in paint swatches and boxes, so I haven’t had a chance to really “entertain” with my friends in the new house. Until now! It might seem silly, but it’s a major achievement to finally have a little party!

Olympic Games Viewing Party: Ideas for Food, Drinks, and Decorations!

With the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in full swing, it’s the perfect opportunity to invite friends over and watch the Olympics. So that is exactly what I did! Anyone else obsessed with gymnastics?! It’s my fave to watch, especially the floor routine. So anyway, it may not sound like a big deal but it’s a gold medal moment that I’m actually entertaining in the new house. There is still a lot to be done but it can wait, it’s time to have fun! So I’m sharing my little viewing party pics with you…and more details on the #ThatsGold campaign!

If you want to set up your own Olympic Games home viewing party, here are a few little tips and tricks:

  • Flags! Whether they’re little flag food picks, a banner, or paper to line your table, flags must make an appearance! You can obviously stick to your favorite country’s flag, but I included lots.
  • Napkins in the official colors – Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, and Black! I also added in straws in these colors as well.
  • Food & Drinks! I opted for a few international faves like French profiteroles and Italian Caprese salad! Also making an appearance were my mini gold medal cakes, they’re the perfect sweet finish. Popcorn is a must at any of my viewing parties, so of course it was served up as well. As for drinks, including the Olympic Movement’s longest continuous sponsor, Coca-Cola is a no-brainer (with their cute Olympic themed cans).
  • Set your food up on a variety of little cake stands for visual interest and easy grabbing!

There you have it! I love using a bar cart because it’s easy to roll right in to the TV room, but you could use a small sideboard table or even a coffee table! The point is getting together with friends to enjoy each other and great food. #ThatsGold!

  1. The gymnastics is one of my absolute favourites too – I can’t wait to watch some of the women’s stuff tonight! Having friends round to celebrate the Olympics and watch it together sounds like the best idea. We’ve just moved to a new town so when we’re settled I would love to do something similar!
