You can’t have a party without food, and the type of food you choose can really set the theme for your party.

Want to celebrate the host nation and explore its cuisine? Have a Brazilian Feast, and let Rio come to you.

Want to celebrate the countries? Have a Parade of Nations party. Assign a country to each of your party guests and have them prepare a dish from that nation.

Want to celebrate the athletes? Have an Athletes’ Favorite Snacks party. Media outlets love writing about what athletes eat, so do a little research and feed your guests some Olympic fuel.

Want to celebrate the sports? Have a Sports Cooking Challenge. Assign a sport to each of your party guests and have them interpret that sport through food.

Don’t forget to make sure that you have appetizers, main dishes and desserts are equally distributed among your guests–and provide a healthy salad option as well.
