Brrrrrr? Okay, so it may not be feeling very wintery here at Caliterra in Dripping Springs, but we’re shaking with excitement for the winter games happening in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Cheering for our team is always fun, but gathering your friends and neighbors for a watch party makes it even better. We have some festive ideas for throwing the ultimate Winter Games watch party in your spacious Caliterra home.
Balloons are an easy and inexpensive way to decorate for any celebration. Creating the Olympic rings can be a fun way to involve the whole family in preparing for the big event. Make your balloon masterpiece as small or large as you please and hang it up for your guests to see as they enter the arena (or living room).

Torch cupcakes are a creative spin on a classic dessert. By baking the cupcake batter in ice cream cones you can easily create a delicious and festive treat to hold high for your team. Don’t forget to add the flames by topping it off with orange and yellow frosting.
Create your favorite recipes from all around the world. Get a taste of the different participating countries and explore traditional dishes and beverages that you may not otherwise get a chance to try. Find different international recipes here for your guests to sample, and be sure to label each dish with its native flag!
Get your guests in the Winter Games spirit by handing out metals for them to wear and flags to represent at the DIY photo booth. Podiums for first, second and third place make taking group pictures fun and amusing.
The 2018 games start tomorrow, but luckily the Winter Game events run from February 9 to February 25. Planning your Winter Games watch party with these helpful tips and ideas make hosting an event easy and simple.
