If you’re feeling enthusiastic about the Games and want to bring some of that energy into your own home, here are some great items that pay tribute to the incredible event. I particularly love the London 2012 limited edition print illustrated by Peter Gander and the metallic London Foil Type maps — great pieces to add to your art collection. If you’re hosting an Olympic-themed party, I’d recommend setting the tone with some fun Olympic Ring cupcake toppers or some charming athlete figurines.
