The Olympics are this year! I LOVE watching the Olympics and if you have been following me for a bit then you know I love parties. I love going to them and I love throwing a great party. Since the Olympics happen every 2 years (when taking into account Winter AND Summer Olympics), I think its the perfect excuse to have a party.
My oldest daughter is getting into the party planning with me and I love it! We have already been brainstorming. This year I really wanted to go with the American theme. In the past I did food from all the different countries. I did games and activities with all the countries, but this year I want to do everything American. Maybe get to know our American athletes, have some good American food, and of course have America decorations.
I have been on the hunt for some cute American decor. Right now is the perfect time to look because the 4th of July is right around the corner. In fact we are right in the midst of the 4th of July weekend. I have looked and looked and I have finally found some fun items that I am going to get right away. They won't break the bank either, which is a plus. I don't know why I didn't start with Oriental Trading Company, seriously they have everything. I don't even have to look anywhere else since they have anything I can think of. I am so excited to share what I have found with you!
First off I want to show you some fun projects that I found that would be so much fun to make. Then I will show you products that I love that are ready to go without any work.

The other great thing about Oriental Trading Company is that they have category pages that make it easy to find what you are looking for. I plan on using the "Patriotic Grand Events Party" category page to help me put together the PERFECT Olympic party this year.
I cannot wait to be surrounded by family and friends watching our country compete in the Olympics. GO TEAM USA!
