It's been well documented our love for the Olympics. So when we had a school event to go to on Friday evening, during the opening ceremonies, we were a tad disappointed. Instead of missing out we just recorded and watched Saturday evening. Our friends joined us since it wouldn't be a Winter Olympics without them!
(how great is Ron's vintage sweater and Elliot's vintage hat?)
The children drank Sprite with Olympic rings on the bottom (aka: lifesavers).
Gretchen brought an around the world cheese plate with cheese from different countries- complete with appropriate flags!
For dinner, we had Shepherd's Pie because that's all I could think of that had a "snowy" surface. I think it turned out so cute, my favorite part being that the "snow" is groomed with a fork! It's the details that make me happy!
We also had a salad with mini mozzarella snowballs.
For dessert, I made a downhill skiing cake that I spotted on You are My Fave. I followed her instructions to the T and it turned out adorable.
We don't have laurel growing in the back yard but we do have ivy! Grace made us ivy wreaths for the occasion!
