Use the colors of the Olympic rings (blue, yellow, black, green, and red) as your color scheme.

Food and Drinks

Prepare a menu inspired by different countries participating in the Olympics. Mini sliders, sushi rolls, Italian pasta, and French pastries can provide a delightful international buffet. For drinks, consider a global soda tasting bar with sodas from around the world. Don’t forget to have a cake decorated with the Olympic rings!
