During mutual have the girls cut out the Olympic rings and a whole TON of snowflakes.
Print off the invitations and help the girls assemble them as well.
Make winter cupcakes for refreshments. Don't forget the gold wrapper.
This cupcake display is just three boxes wrapped in white with ribbons wrapped around each one and then stacked. Brilliant!
The flags were 1/2 yard each. I made a casing on the side of each one which slipped easily over a wooden dowel. The flags stayed on nicely—and are removable for washing or if someone wants to hang them instead without the dowels (which we did the next year for a Royal Theme...you know, flags hanging in the "great hall"....)
Drill the appropriate size holes in a 2 x 4 and the dowels will stick in the display and show nicely. These flags have been used for various occasions, even the Stake has been using them. So they are worth the time investment.
Next up: Snowflakes.
Print up a snowflake pattern you like. Tape the papers onto something flat and moveable. Then tape wax paper over that.
Next whip up a batch of Royal icing and trace over the snowflakes. Don't forget to add a toothpick. These will take about 1-3 days to dry completely.
Lastly are the invitations.
Click Here: For blank pdf invitations. You'll have to import them into a program (like Word or Adobe Acrobat etc.) to fill in your own information and then cut them out following the crop marks.
For the ovals, once you've cut them out you'll punch two holes on either side to run the ribbon through. (We used gold and silver ribbon.)
Purchase multicolored paper. If you are holding the paper horizontally, you will want to cut a strip off the bottom so your invitation comes just to the top and bottom.
Paste the invitation in the middle and fold both flaps in.
Punch holes in either side of the oval cut-out and thread ribbon through, tie in the back. Pass them out and you're good to go.
And now you're set! Just Google "Olympic New Beginnings" and you'll find all kinds of program content ideas.
