If I knew how to make this post sing when you read it – I would have done so. What tune you ask?
Ba, Ba, Ba da ba da da, ba ba ba da, da dada dada da da.
In case you can’t tell that’s my (awful) interpretation of the Olympic march. I believe it is officially titled “Bugler’s Dream.” Save your eyeballs and treat your ears here. Regardless, I’m sure this song will be blasting from the TV set of anyone who knows what’s good on a Friday night. Or at least this Friday night.
I am on the verge of obsessed with the Olympics. I love them so much I have already registered all of my electronic devises for 24 hour streaming of every event online. Yes that’s a thing. Why you ask?
1. I love the Olympics because these athletes possess skills that I will never in this lifetime have a chance of attaining. That would require me getting off the couch. Any athletic talent I had went out the window LONG ago.
2. Any opportunity to sneak a peak into some of the greatest cities on this planet is a fantastic excuse to me to park my butt in front of the tv and not feel guilty.
4. How can you not love a sandy beach volleyball player or the half naked men in the pool? Eye Candy. All day. For two weeks.
5. Who isn’t amazed at competitive speed walking or professional canoeing? Yes those are also things.
But I digress. The impending festivities have my inspiration swirling and the next best thing to throwing an Olympic viewing party (yes this thought actually crossed my mind. I even went so far as to consider decor. It’s insane. I know) is to pretend to throw an Olympic party, or at least something similar.
In honor of the gold medals that will be handed out in the upcoming weeks I give you the gold wedding inspiration:
These first images were collected via Style Me Pretty. The gold can come through in small details whether it be a metallic cake, menu cards, studded shoes or soft tones in the flowers.
If you’re looking to make a bigger statement take a cue from the boards at Lover.ly and go bold with your invites, dress, or sequin linens:
I feel like I could even make a dress out of that linen it’s so beautiful. Either way you spin it, gold is glamorous and you can’t help but feel like a winner! Now, I must go make myself comfortable – it’s going to be a long, but glorious, three weeks!
