The opening ceremonies for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea are on February 9th, and we couldn’t be more excited! If you love the Olympics as much as we do, you’re going to be watching every minute of your favorite events. So why not host a party for all of your Olympics-loving family and friends? Climb up onto that podium, put your hand over your heart, and follow these tips to win gold at your Winter Olympics viewing party.

Invitations

The first thing you need to do is let everyone know they’re invited to watch the Olympics with you, and that means you need some killer invitations. Start by choosing when you want to host your party, such as for the opening ceremonies, for a certain sport, or just a night that you have free. Then, create an invitation that fits that theme. For the opening ceremonies, for instance, you could make a pop-up invitation with the Olympic rings or torch. For the sporting events, cover your invitations with photos of the greatest athletes or images of ice skates, skis, and snowboards. The point is that your invitations should scream “I’m excited for the Olympics!” so your guests will be, too.

Decorations

Next up is the decorations, starting with your TV. Let’s just say it needs to be big and prominent. As for your other decorations you can make Olympic torch centerpieces for your tables, hang Olympic rings on your walls, and lay out winter sport equipment and paraphernalia, such as ice skates, ski poles, hockey pucks, and snowboards. If you really want to go big, find a blank wall where you can record how many gold, silver, and bronze medals each country has won. Just don’t forget your apartment living techniques and hang everything up with double-sided tape or 3M Command hooks so you don’t leave holes in the walls.

Food and Drinks

What’s a party without tasty food and drinks? Lucky for you, the Olympics provides you with plenty of themed food options.
