Go Team USA!

Let's Geaux Party put together another fun party with a competitive theme - the Olympics. It was held at a local pool so the mom wanted to do something that incorporated sports and games since they'd be swimming and the birthday boy is on the pool's swim team. 

For the centerpiece table we purchased the felt pieces from Hobby Lobby and cut them into flames and constructed our version of the Olympic torch using some PVC pipe, a simple wooden base, gold spray paint and red and orange tissue paper. The "flames" looked great blowing in the wind. Their last name fit perfectly within the Olympic rings and made a great banner showcasing other countries flags.

Dollar Tree again to the rescue for party favors! We found these great aluminum water bottles and personalized them with each guest's name in white vinyl. The font on the bottles matched the font used through the collateral and the 2012 Olympics. Guests also received a treat bag filled with sports themed candy also purchased at Dollar Tree. 

As an added treat you can support Team USA yourself by using the Magnolia Creative Co. FREE Olympics printables available here.


Let's Geaux Party is the team party venture from Emily Welch owner and designer behind Magnolia Creative Co. and Amelia Chandler from the styling blog, Her Royal Heinous. Together they are the only event company specializing in children's parties in the Shreveport/Bossier area.
