The atmosphere of the Olympics is simply electrifying. Once every four years, we gather together as a nation to support Team GB in the hopes they bring home some medals.

There’s no better excuse then to invite everyone round and throw a party to mark the joyous occasion. With the fabulous nation of Brazil hosting this summer’s games, it’s a great chance to deck out any shindig you’re hosting with some Ipanema-inspired decs and party pieces.

We’ve rounded up our top Rio crafts you can do at home before you fiesta your way through the next month. Prepare to sizzle and samba into the evening this summer!
