For those planning an outdoor Olympic-themed event, why not organize your own mini-Olympics? Depending on your guests' interests and abilities, you can include a variety of activities that encourage friendly competition and team-building. Even if you decide against a competitive element, you can still invoke the Olympic spirit by encouraging guests to dress in attire representing their favorite country. This not only adds to the festive atmosphere but also fosters a sense of global unity and celebration.
