2. Fuel Up On Snacks

You can’t watch the Olympics without snacks, so you might as well embrace the festivities and make them Olympic themed. Top of your list needs to be the delicious yet simple Popcorn Olympic Torch.


Simply pop your popcorn of choice and serve them in ice-cream cones to turn them into mini Olympic torches. Also, a quick tip – add some M&M’s to the cones! These will definitely be a hit with the kids. 


3. Get Creative With Cocktails
This one is for the adults! (who says kids get to have all the fun?) A Japanese inspired cocktail is a must for games viewing. This cocktail is called Tōji Moon and is inspired by the winter solstice, known in Japan as tōji:


This cocktail combines the snowy appearance of winter and the velvety texture of Nogori sake – we’ll take two! You can find the recipe HERE

4. Embrace Winning Homewares

Nothing says Olympics like the medal colours gold, silver and bronze. Embrace the metallic style and add statement pieces to your home. 

Do you want to be on the top of the podium? Then gold is for you! Introducing gold pieces like this stylish Georg Jensen Cobra Candle set from David Jones helps bring a luxurious feel to your space. 


Nothing says chic like silver accent pieces in your abode. Myer ranges beautiful silver homewares like this stunning silver Heritage Table Clock to enhance your living area or bedroom. 


Bronze is a favourite for a reason, paired with some warm reds and royal blues this will transform your home into the perfect winter escape. If you’re wanting to incorporate a touch of bronze, allow us to suggest this antique-style bronze bathroom set from Bed Bath N' Table.
