Earlier this week I shared one of my recent #ThatsGold moments with you guys, about how a friend brightened my day with a sweet and unexpected gesture.
You can check that post out here, but as a quick recap – #ThatsGold is a fun project I’ve partnered with Coca-Cola on that’s inspired by the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, and celebrates the “golden” EVERYDAY moments in life that happen to all of us – not just the super athletic few! You know… the moments that leave you feeling happy, loved, inspired, and capable.
So, when I first sat down to start thinking about my own #ThatsGold moments, I quickly recognized a common theme. The vast majority of them had something to do with making people happy through creativity… like inviting friends over to watch a chick flick and serving themed drinks inspired by the movie storyline, or surprising my kids with a snack arranged in the shape of their favorite animal, or decorating someone’s door or desk in a style that’s “SO them” on their birthday.
I just love seeing faces light up when people are surprised by something that’s cute or pretty or clever… something that just makes a typical moment or experience a little more happy and exciting. For me, #ThatsGold!
So this got me thinking about the Olympics, and how much more fun it is to watch the Games with other people so that you can be wowed by and root for your favorite athletes together. Someone else needs to witness those crazy twisting flips along with you, right?!
And since chances are good that your guests are going to want something to sip on while they watch, why not make things extra fun by doing things like:
A) serving up “Go for the YUM” Coke Floats garnished with a gold straws and toppings that match the Olympic colors!
B) tossing patriotic popsicles into ice cold sodas for a cute/tasty drink garnish AND a spirited nod to Team USA. I call this one “Perfect 10 (soda) POP“. ;)

P.S. Don’t forget that if you share a #ThatsGold moment of your own following the (very simple) contest guidelines at the bottom of this post, you’ll be entered to win a one-of-a-kind, crystal-covered Coca-Cola bottle!
You can also find the Olympics themed Coca-Cola cans in major retailers right now. And in case you’re wondering… yes, there is a Diet Coke version too! ;)
