According to the official London2012.com web site, the new Olympic logo was designed to be “simple, distinct, bold and buzzing with energy” and features the untraditional colors of pink turquoise, and orange.
While we love the new design and its meaning, we are suckers for the traditional and familiar Olympic circles and international flags, which is what we turned to for inspiration when it came to our Olympic party invitations and decorations.

For Moms & Kids
When you are a new Mom, you are maintaining existing friendships and making new ones. When I looked at my guest list for my son’s Olympic party, I realized many Moms would not know anyone at the party.
To make them feel comfortable, I created an Olympics Program that featured the name of each child guest with a photo and some fun facts about the child similar to the personal stories we enjoy about our favorite athletes.
For example: Thomas is two years old, lives in Manhasset, loves opening and closing doors, and chasing bubbles.
Immediately moms could relate and would chat up about their child’s similar behavior and the guests had a nice souvenir from the party!
