Please find all of our Olympics themed celebration supplies here

The 2016 Rio Olympics begin on August 5th and people all across the globe will be watching the world’s best athletes compete for the gold! Many people have celebrations to mark the occasion, where everyone can watch the sports together and take part in one of the world’s longest running events! This little guide will help you to decorate for an Olympics party – from the decorations and balloons, to some fun costume ideas, and some creative party treats. When it comes to Olympic party planning, we here at Shindigs will help you get the gold!


Balloons and decorations in the Olympic ring colours are a must! There’s even linking balloons you can use to recreate the Olympic rings and hang around the party area! Some hanging swirls and tissue paper pom poms would look wonderful as well! As well as this, you could also use some sport themed decorations or various international flags to decorate the party area! There’s also napkins, tableware, tablecovers, cups and more in Olympic colours, or with some decoration that would be perfect for an Olympic celebration – too easy!


Some curly wigs for the guests would help them get into the spirit of things, as well as some colourful face paint! Some sport theme costumes would also work a treat for an Olympics party – we’ve got sweatbands to help you look like a tennis player, as well as visors and trophy party favours for the guests!


Party treats are always required at an event like this, so some creativity when creating culinary delights for your Olympic celebration is sure to serve you well! Olympic ring cookies, Olympic torch cupcakes served in an ice cream cone, marshmallow weights and so much more you can do! (Cake decorating supplies, including icing and fondant, available on our website.) There’s also a lot of lollies on our website in a variety of colours and flavours which are sure to suit your needs!


For all of the adults at your party, some blue, black, red, yellow and green jelly shots arranged into the Olympic rings would look pretty impressive, too! (Jelly shot glasses are available on our site.)


Given the nature of the Olympics, some party games would be a big hit with guests, whether they're young or young at heart! If you're watching for a particular sport, you and your guests could play the same game, or you could play some creatively constructed party games (Olympic ring toss, anyone?) Take it from us, some pool noodle javelin would also be awesome!
