{Free Printables} and {Mirabelle Creations Party} — Summer Olympics Party

 *** FREE PRINTABLES NOW UPDATED FOR 2016 SUMMER OLYMPICS***

Last week, I designed Olympics themed party circles, medals, and a party sign for our family vacation.  We will be on a family vacation during the Olympics, so we are planning an Opening Ceremonies party and games while we are there.  Since these had already been designed, I thought you might want to use them for your party, too!
This Olympics Dessert Table is an inexpensive, easy party that I created in less than 24 hours.  It would be a great brunch or play date set up.  Or, if you are creating your own Opening Ceremonies, like we are, it would be perfect for that, too.
Scroll below to read about all the party highlights.  Make sure you look for the Go For Gold Pineapple Muffins and Oreo Gold Medals.  Links to the Free Summer Olympics Printables are at the bottom of the post.

Food
All of the food for the party was inspired by the Olympics.  My sweet daughter made the Go For Gold Pineapple Muffins (stayed tuned later this week for the recipe).  I chose these muffins instead of cupcakes because they include fruit and use much less sugar than a traditional cupcakes.  Little athletes have to eat healthy, of course!
Gold Cherries (Rainier cherries) are our favorites, so they were an obvious choice.  The Watermelon Olympic Rings were made using two sizes of round cookie cutters.  My favorite treat of this party was the Oreo Gold Medals.  These were made with Golden Oreos and Fruit by the Foot dried fruit rolls.  The Oreo Gold Medals could also be packaged as a take home favor.  I chose orange juice as the drink because of its golden color.
Decor
The party design first started with the printable party circles.  The Olympics Rings and Olympics Torch were an obvious starting point.  This year’s Olympic slogan is “Inspire a Generation”.  So, one party circle design includes the word, “Inspire”.  The red and navy diagonal stripes were inspired by Ralph Lauren’s USA Opening Ceremony Outfits.
I designed printable medals for our party, to be given to the event winners.  In addition, the medals were used as part of the party decorations.  A gold medal was placed on the muffin pedestal, to resemble the podiums that the athletes stand on during the Olympics.  For the backdrop, I first found three black frames.  I cut out cardboard to fit in the frames, then covered the cardboard with blue and white gingham fabric.  I attached gold, silver, and bronze medals to cupcakes liners for more texture and depth.  They were then attached to the fabric, with red ribbon, to make Olympic Medal Art for the backdrop.
The gingham fabric was also used for a table runner.  The printable party sign on the dessert table welcomes the guests.
My two little “models” were very eager to help taste all the treats.  They particularly liked the Oreo Gold Medals.  Both of their outfits were from our favorite local childrens’ clothing line, Bella Bliss.

    Hi! I love that you put this together. I am having my boys’ birthday party on Friday and the theme is the Olympics! I want to download the party sign, but there is text at the top. How do I download it without?
    Thanks,

    I just found you from Crossing Dixon…I’m a new fb follower, your style is so perfect!

    This party idea is both simple and super cute too! I just love those oreo medals. And the watermelon rings are pretty too. How absolutely creative! I just hosted our Olympic party last weekend and I would have loved to have used these printables. :(

    This is great Deanna! I’m going to use the printables today :) I was wondering if you could tell me- what punch did you use for the cupcake toppers? I’ve been seeing that shape on a lot of things I want to make & decided I need to figure out what punch it is & get one!
