Have a Party- The 2012 Summer Olympics are Here!

Oh Happy Day! The Summer 2012 Olympics are finally here and I am positively pumped for the next two weeks. Swimming, gymnastics, volleyball, I truly love watching it all- Olympic athletes are so inspiring to me. The Summer Olympics are really my favorite...although, I always say the same thing when the Winter Olympics roll around. I guess I just love it all. Team USA for the win! 

Our friends are hosting an Olympics party next weekend and I think it is just the best idea. Everyone has to pick a country to represent in the form of food- it's going to be an international feast! If you're looking for a fun way to celebrate, this is such a fun and easy theme to throw together.

Vintage Olympics Tees from Gap
Puttin' on the GRITS' Red, White + Blue wreath is perfect to show Team USA some love

I love the idea of every guest bringing food to represent a country! Mark and will be Greek for the day next Saturday- so we'll be arriving to the party with Greek Turkey Meatballs with Tzatziki for dipping and Greek Salad skewers.

Mini Burgers + Fries (is there anything more American!?)

And it's not a party without something to sip on. Don't forget the cocktails!

Enjoy the weekend!


  1. CUTE and YUMMY ideas!!! It makes me want to throw an Olympic party now. Guess I'm a little late for opening ceremonies :-) Hope you have a great weekend honey!

  2. This is so much fun! I have a red, white, and blue cocktail I make for the 4th. Have a great weekend!

  3. Ah I love this party idea :) Such a fun party, and hopefully when all the USA stuff at gap goes on sale they will still have my size :)

  4. Petal, I don't know how I missed this post before? It's adorable! My favorite are those little burgers with the shot glasses full of ketchup and french fries! AH! So cute! And the 'going for the gold' goodies! How creative! I totally wanna throw an Olympic party this weekend! But as I can't, I'm super excited to read about yours! xoxo
