Travellers at home: Host a Brazilian brunch party for the Olympics

You’ve got to find fun where you can, right? Thanks to my hostess-with-the-mostest-mom’s traditions, I’ve inherited a love of throwing a party for a party’s sake.

Especially when you’re used to travelling or longing for another trip, it can break up the monotony of regular life to celebrate with some international flavour.

And thus, the idea for an Olympic party was born. I hosted this Rio-themed breakfast for the Opening Ceremonies, but the concept works just as well for the Closing Ceremonies, or, if you’re in a different timezone (in Australia, the Rio evening is our morning), on the occasion of a particularly exciting sporting event.
