My family and I are not sports people. However, when it comes to the Olympic Games, we are all in. From the opening ceremonies to the closing ceremonies, we love to watch as much as we can. We love catching up on the highlights at the end of the day and of course, the medal count!
The 2018 Winter Olympics, aka: the XXIII Olympic Winter Games are being held in PyeongChang, South Korea this year, kicking off on February 9th and ending on February 25th. I am getting everything ready for our Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies Party. Check out everything you need to host a super fun Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies Party!
How to Host a Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies Party
First, we need snacks! What’s a party without snacks, am I right? On Friday nights, we always make a big batch of popcorn. I make a bag for everyone. It’s quick and easy.
With snacks, we need drinks. How adorable are these Olympic Themed Drink Can Covers?
For dessert, these Olympic Torch Cupcakes are a must!
Olympic Torch Cupcakes
Easy Olympic Torch Cupcakes to make for the Olympic Games
- 1 box Cake Mix ((your choice of flavors) )
- 1 can Vanilla Frosting
- Red & Yellow Food Coloring
- 12 Waffle Ice Cream Cones
Poke a hole in a tin foil cupcake pan.
To keep the cupcake pan steady, foil the sides of the pan to a casserole dish.
Stick the ice cream cones in each hole in the cupcake pans.
Prepare the cake mix according to package directions.
Fill each ice cream cone to just below the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the cupcakes are finished baking.
Fill a piping bag with the vanilla frosting. Add drops of Red and Yellow food coloring and swirl to create a fire effect.
Frost the tops of each cupcake when cool.
Of course, there is some down time during the opening ceremonies, like with commercials and commentary. Keep the kids entertained with some fun games!
Cheer on your favorite country too with some Olympic themed paper goods and decorations!
