How to Host a Great Summer Olympics Theme Party

Ingredients for a great Japanese themed 2020 Olympics celebration?

Plan your party for the opening ceremony, around a favorite Olympic event ... or for celebrating the colorful Olympic closing ceremony.

Add to the fun by having guests participate in party games. And, when the party is over, remember to give out the Olympic party favors to send all your guests home happy.

For clever homemade invitations, decorate with Japanese clipart, photos of Olympic athletes, or Olympic rings clip art.

Also be sure to include a front cover headline, such as "Let the Games Begin!" or "You're Invited to the Official Party of the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics!"

Also include any special instructions about what guests should bring and, finally, remember to include the where, when, and other RSVP details.


It's the summer Olympics in Tokyo, after all, so what better reason to you need to serve up a cool party tray of Japanese sushi! Order it from your local specialty shop or restaurant, or make it yourself with plenty of tips available online for hosting your own Olympic-style sushi party!

Served up with traditional Japanese sticky rice, miso soup, and a traditional cold Japanese beer, a bottle of sake (or other wines that pair perfectly with sushi) and you're sure to win gold in Olympic party hosting.

Olympic donutsFor the kids, don't forget to serve bottled water, soda or sports drinks, or think nutritious juices and their favorite fruit drinks.

For dessert, wave the colors with a delicious Olympic ring cake or try this easy recipe for making scrumptious Olympic cookie rings.

Or, if you really want to score with young ones in attendance -- simply buy a box of plain donuts. Make a simple sugar frosting, then go to town with food coloring to make different frostings in the official colors of the Olympic rings.

Kids of all ages will love it.


Browse your favorite music store or for Olympic CD compilations. You can also search the Web for downloadable audio files including the Olympic Hymn, Chariots of Fire, and other rousing inspirational songs.



To celebrate everything Japan, remember their official flag colors are red and white!

Browse a local art shop for posters for Olympic sports posters or a Tokyo travel theme, or scour your closets for swimming gear, tennis rackets, soccer balls, or other summer sports gear you can use as decorations.

• Make a table centerpiece of flags from different countries to celebrate the Olympics as a truly international competition.

• Cut out and color 5 Olympic cardboard rings to hang from the ceiling, or decorate with balloons in the official Olympic colors.

• Keep little ones busy by letting them decorate with stickers made from sports clipart or Olympics coloring pages to hang around the party room to serve as decorations.


How about a rousing game of Name That Olympic Tune! (see Olympic Party Music, above). For other fun group games, try a 2020 Summer Olympics trivia quiz, or arrange a scavenger hunt to find Olympic Gold - such as chocolate candy wrapped in gold foil.


Send happy guests home with goodie bags made up of Olympic sports posters or Olympic music CD's, international flags or stickers, and homemade spray-painted "gold medals".
