With the Rio 2016 Olympics just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to celebrate some gold medal moments with my best girlfriends. For the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Coca-Cola is introducing a new campaign, helping everyone experience that gold medal feeling. Winning gold is an amazing achievement, but the same positive feeling exist beyond the podium. It’s the happy moments in life everyone can experience, it’s called #ThatsGold. What better way to celebrate, and bring #ThatsGold to life, than with my best girls. Our little tribe of women is nothing short than amazing, we are all business owners…bloggers, shop owners, and designers. It’s rare that we all get a chance to get together, so I hosted a fun Girls Night In with Coca-Cola in honor of being busy moms, and hard working boss ladies. Being busy moms and finding time to laugh together – now #ThatsGold!
We gathered some blankets large pillows to sit on and headed outside, it was the perfect spot to hang out.
I kept the decor simple, I made some of my white and gold Painted Tin Can Planters to hold some cute cacti. I also recycled some empty Coke cans and planted some small succulents and colored cacti to put with the larger planters. This is such a great way to create a quick centerpiece without breaking the bank if you’re hosting a get-together. You can even send your guests home with them at the end of the night.
I set up a beverage cart with our favorite Coca-Cola products, easy for everyone to grab. I made sure to have plenty of cute Coca-Cola inspired glasses for everyone since we all love a ton of pebble ice and lime wedges with our soda. My personal favorite is an icy cold Coke Zero with cherries, so good!
Since the theme of the night was celebrating our gold medal moments I made sure to have pops of gold throughout. Gold banners, gold straws, and more.
Everyone loved having the classic glass Coca-Cola bottles as well, they are always a huge hit. I was sure they were nice and chilled ahead of time and then kept them cold in a bucket full of our favorite pebble ice.
These women, so much talent in one picture I can hardly stand it. Each of us have two to three kiddos, they range in ages 2 to 12 so we have our hands full on the daily. I love that we’ve found each other as friends, it’s so important to surround yourself with friends that uplift you and encourage you. These girls do just that, being boss ladies isn’t always easy but with each others encouragement and support we find that our dreams are within reach. Plus, everyone needs a group of friends that they can laugh uncontrollably with! There’s nothing better for your soul and your attitude than laughter and when your combine each one of us it’s an all out party.
The night wouldn’t be complete without great snacks to accompany our ice cold drinks. We munched on delicious Brownie Batter Dip, 7-Layer Bean Dip (I’m kinda famous for it, you have to try it!), and cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip.
It was great to sit around picnic style while we chatted about new business ventures, laughed hard about silly things, and complemented each other about how good we look for almost 40!
I seriously can’t imagine my life right now without these strong gorgeous women, they are all something to be celebrated for sure! Everyone needs a tribe like this.

Gorgeous party!! Love it!!
Thank you so much Andrea. 🙂
My #thatsgold moment was right after college when we all had started our careers. I saw how hard every one of my friends was working and there wasn’t any goofiness like before. So I made up a fake holiday for them and gave them the goofiest fake awards, just because I thought we all needed a day to be kids and carefree again! We’ve tried to continue the tradition but it’s more difficult now because of distance. But that first year all we had were snacks and, of course, Coca Cola Classic! Best time ever!
Love this, such a great idea to keep the fun alive! Thanks for sharing this! Have a great week! 🙂
