Wonderful Winter Olympics Party Ideas

Celebrate the Winter Olympics by hosting a themed watch party!

Along with hot chocolate and the holidays, the winter season is bringing the Olympics! Sounds like a great reason to gather friends and family for a day of fun and friendly competition. Get into the Olympics spirit by hosting a snowy and sporty Winter Olympics watch party featuring sports and winter themed decorations, treats and activities! From edible torches to decorative snowflakes, there’s countless ways to turn your home into a sporty winter wonderland. Take a look at some of our favorite Winter Olympics watch party ideas and get inspired to host your own themed event!

  • Turn your home into a winter wonderland with beautiful DIY snowflakes! Create a delicate snowflake and balloon garland like this one seen on Oh Happy Day or a super snowy garland like this one found on Crafts and Decor!
  • Serve treats that resemble the iconic Olympic torch like these delicious cake pops found on Miss CandiQuik or these wonderfully simple popcorn snacks seen on A Small Snippet! Not only are these treats tasty, but they will tie your theme together perfectly!
  • Set up simple and fun activities for your guests to play throughout the party like this Snowball Ring Toss seen on Make and Takes! Guests are simply asked to toss five marshmallow snowballs into each of the five rings in this easy but deceivingly tricky activity.
  • Keep your guests warm and cozy with a hot chocolate bar! Arrange various sweet toppings, hot cocoa and mugs across the table to create a bar like this one seen on Amanda’s Parties TO GO. Even add mini printed international flags to drink stirrers to tie your theme together. This is sure to be a guest favorite and is a perfect treat for the winter season!
  • Ask your guests questions about the Olympics or set up fun activities and award your guests with these handmade medals found on Just Another Day in Paradise! You can even award these medals to each guest as a party favor. These fabric medals are a fun craft to make and are perfectly soft and cozy for a winter themed party.
  • Wrap ice skate themed cookies in favor bags and hand them out to your guests as deliciously sweet party favors like these seen on Confections by Courtney! Adorable party favors can also be created with snowflake or other sports related themed treats.
