Kari, these are SO GREAT! What an awesome round-up! So many cool Olympic ideas in one place--my kids will love SO many of these! P.S. Maybe your husband can talk to my husband about being more open to themes! Mine looked at the banner hanging in the family room and asked, "Will we be expecting some athletes later to line up by the fireplace." Grr. Have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by, and for inspiring our party! That's hilarious! This is the ONE time my husband has embraced the "theme". I love doing a theme for my daughter's birthdays. He has said on different occasions that maybe it could be more simple next time. But, what fun is that? :) Once I have picked a theme, there are so many things that go together easily! Good luck on your next event! :) Kari
