I don’t know anyone who loves the Olympics as much as my family and I. My mom probably still has coverage from the Atlanta games recorded on a VHS tape somewhere. We text each other photos of any Olympic product we come across and our family website posts are already dominated with talk of the summer games. My sister always throws a huge party  for the opening ceremonies (this year they’ll be projected onto an inflatable outdoor screen after the ceremonial lighting of the fire pit) so I had the talented Melanie Burk design these printable invitations for my family and anyone of you who are planning to have a party to celebrate the games.

    OMG Olympics take over our lives. We seriously go Cable just for the Olympics -so that we could watch and record every moment. (If you know Comcast you know that is no small investment.)
    We live up by Canada so last Winter Olympics we could watch the whole thing live and then at night we would watch the recaps. Haha… I just love the stories they highlight.

    GAh, I’m so excited, too! I’m obsessed!
    I live in Vancouver so got to experience the Olympics first hand and it was AMAZING! I was lucky enough to attend several events – dream come true! And just like Laurel, I’d watch it happen live and then go home and spend the evenings watching all the coverage. I thought my husband was going to kill me. I! AM! SO! EXCITED!

    Oh gosh, I have found a kindred spirit! I have been lucky enough to go to five olympic games as a spectator and have pretty much been obsessed since I was 6 years old. We’re doing a big Olympic party too — just finished designing the invitation in case you’re interested!


    Going to adapt some of your Olympic box items as party favors and prizes for ours!

    My maternity leave coincided with the Olympic games… coincidence? I think not!

    It has been great to be at home all day and catch up on all of the obscure sports and give John an Olympic recap each night!
