Olympics Party

I had a blast over at New Day Northwest yesterday, where I was challenged to create an Olympics Themed Party! You can watch the segment HERE, which has even more ideas!

Just in case you are in the mood for an Olympics opening ceremonies party for your friends and family- hopefully this will give you some fun inspiration!

Candy! There were Rainbow Lollypops made from melted jolly ranchers. They were supposed to be in the colors of international flags, but seeing as how jolly ranchers come in a limited array of colors, it is admittedly a bit of a stretch! But the kids still had a great time doing it.

Rainbow Lollypops

Cookies! Olympic Rings Sugar Cookies made with biscuit cutters, royal icing, and grocery store food coloring and sprinkles.

I also made these diver cookies for the rims of the milk glasses. I saw something similar and sketched a stencil and traced it with a paring knife.

Donuts! You can make your own like http://www.heatherchristo.com/cooks/2010/07/10/doughnuts-with-brown-butter-vanilla-glaze/ or buy some at your favorite bakery. I whipped up a glaze of powdered sugar, corn syrup and food coloring, and dunked away to create these Olympic Ring hued donuts.

Cupcakes! I made simple chocolate cupcakes adorned with Olympic Athlete tags, and then I also made Olympic Torch-cupcake-ice cream cones. They were an awesome hit with my kids.
