Our office events committee is planning our first GigMasters Office Olympics - complete with coffee cup races and synchronized chair dancing.

So much great stuff out there, but only a few deserve the gold. And the medals go to...

BIRD'S PARTY SHOP For best design, Bird's Party Shop gets the medal. With her 3-D Olympic rings, ticket-inspired invitations, energy drinks, flag cookies and great activities, Bird really nailed it. For all the details and more great photos, see Bird's post on Hostess with the Mostess.

You could celebrate the Olympics by being a couch potato or you could get outside and host your own Olympic games! They only come along every 4 years...

How will you celebrate?
