Eat like an athlete, get a gold medal in décor and get your name in the party planning history books!

Go In on the theme
Get those gold plates, blow up silver balloons and dust off those medals you earned as a kid. Anything gold, silver or bronze goes for this occasion.
For a little extra flair you can decorate with international flags, and play national anthems from around the world as you parade around your living room.
Go ahead, fill your cart, do a little dance and take that victory lap around the Jungle. After all, you’ve earned that gold medal in party planning!
