Cheer Team USA on to Victory at this Year's Summer Olympics with Olympic Themed Party Supplies and Decorations!
July 27, 2012
Olympic fever is sweeping the nation as everyone prepares for the 2012 Summer Olympics! You won’t want to be the only one on the block not showing you’re support for Team USA this year, so you’ll want to stock up on your Olympic party supplies and decorations so that you aren’t caught empty handed when your favorite athletes bring home the gold or your favorite event ends in a nail-biting photo finish. Whether you’re throwing a full-fledged party so the whole gang can watch the opening ceremonies or just want to show your support for Team USA in your favorite event, all it takes is a little creativity and some fabulous supplies to make this year’s Summer Olympics a celebration-worthy event for everyone!
When the Olympic Torch is lit in London at the Opening Ceremonies this year, you’ll want to be ready to show that you bleed red, white, and blue for Team USA! If flying Old Glory on the front flagpole isn’t enough, then let everyone know you’re supporting our American athletes with a great personalized Stars and Stripes Olympic banner. Customize it with a message for a local athlete, welcome guests to your personal Olympic Village, or just let the neighborhood know you’re a die-hard Michael Phelps fan! Whatever message you want to spread, these Olympic banners are a great way to get the point across! You can also show your true colors by draping your porch in patriotic buntings and banners that you can leave up for the next patriotic holiday as well.
When you’re throwing an Opening Ceremonies celebration you’ll want to decorate indoors as well, but even if you’ll be enjoying the Summer Olympics on your own, that doesn’t mean you can get into the Olympic spirit with a few fun decorations. Your viewing area won’t be complete without your own set of Olympic rings proudly on display! And when you want to feel like you’re right in the middle of the action, use a stadium scene setter roll to help you feel like you’re experiencing the events firsthand! To ensure you don’t miss any of your favorite events, check out the Olympics time guide online to find out when each event is going to be aired. You can even go one step further and set up a large whiteboard with the event schedule on it, arranged by date and time, with your favorite events color coded in order of priority so that you can quickly determine when the most important events are on. After all, you don’t want to miss that all-important ping pong final or the men’s 200 meter dash because you forgot what time it was on, do you? When you’ve got the schedule laid out in front of you, you can be sure you’re watching all the events you care about and won’t miss any of key moments or world records! You can also use a whiteboard or chalkboard to keep a tally of the number of medals Team USA has won. If you’re planning on watching the Opening and Closing Ceremonies with a group of friends, make things interesting by placing bets on the number of medals Team USA will bring home. It’s up to you if you want to be specific about medals in certain events, or the amount certain athletes, like the popular swimmer Michael Phelps, will win, or if you just want to bet on a general medal count. Keep track throughout the Olympics of how many medals have been won, in what events, and whether they were gold, silver, or bronze. When everyone gathers to watch the Closing Ceremonies, reveal the final medal count and present the winner with their own Olympic gold medal or Olympic torch trophy!
Whether you’re supporting Team USA on your own or getting together with other sports fanatic friends, decking the house out with Olympic party supplies and decorations will ensure that everyone knows you’re cheering for the home team this summer! So stock up on everything from patriotic paper goods to Olympic wall decals and you’ll have everything you need to support our athletes and bring home the gold in the party planning events this summer!
