What better way to kick off this holiday season than with all the fun at Mom Trends Holiday Soiree. I was so honored to be invited to this year's super festive event! And it did not disappoint!
So many great brands Pearhead, Red Velvet NYC, O-Venture, Riders by Lee, maniorpedi, My Cents of Style, Boxed Water, Jarlsberg, Noble Vines, AtMos FX. There was fashion, food and did I mention wine? Well, yes, there was so much to discover. Bloggers were challenged to mix and mingle like pro's with DIY's and decorating at every table.
The beautiful space at Splashlight Studios was transformed into a winter wonderland with a gorgeous display of holiday images from Santa and Rudolf to snow falling and twinkling lights. The ambiance was magical and it immediately took my mind straight to all the holiday parties, entertaining and of course the gifts!
The first station was for us busy moms on the go. No time to get your nails all glammed up with that oh so perfect holiday shade of red? No problem, maniorpedi can come to you! Your office or home can be taken over by the talented team for that perfect manicure to wear all season long. I know I'll be needing this for sure this hectic holiday season. With a big extended family and my own 3 kids to shop for, it leaves little time for me. Thanks to Mani Or Pedi I won't need to worry about feeling put together at all the holiday gatherings.
All of us need to stay hydrated in this race to accomplish it all. Shopping, wrapping, cooking.. it could leave us all a little worn out. No problem, because Boxed Water has us covered with this unique water bottle in a box. Your kids will love it too and who does't want to be environmentally friendly this season and all year long? This brand helps by using sustainable materials so you can have your H2O on the go!
Do you love to make your own seasonal gifts? I do too! And that's why Name Bubbles labels are perfect to have on hand this season. I love personalizing everything and who doesn't want to receive a gift that comes from the heart! This brand let us special make labels for their very own make your own hot cocoa mason jars! I may need to steal this adorable idea!! Thanks, guys!
Time to talk fashion... We all have many events to attend and Riders by Lee really put us to work styling their jeans into the perfect outfit for every occasion! From office work parties to girls nights out, the bloggers had a rack full of accessories and I have to say this bunch knows how to dress! Guests were also treated to a fashion show featuring the amazing fits from the brand. How fabulous is that?!
We sure worked up an appetite as we made our way to the next table filled with the most decadent array of cheeses by Jarlsberg. Here we were challenged to make our own cheese plate. Entertaining this season? Me too! I know I will use this idea for my next holiday gathering. It is the perfect pairing for a festive holiday get together.
Have little ones at home and want to capture this year to enjoy every year to come? Well, Pearhead has come up with the most adorable ways to do that! Each blogger was gifted their choice the cutest, sweeties gifts from items like baby's first Christmas to make your own ornaments. Then the team gift wrapped it like the perfect Christmas elves. Each piece they had was special and I wanted them all! But I choose a holiday picture frame that I can't wait to fill with a family photo from this year. To capture this time and remember it forever. They have the perfect gift giving options and stocking stuffers. You must check them out!
Have a sweet tooth? Yes!! I do! Well, the holidays just wouldn't be the same without some yummy desserts. Red Velvet NYC has created the ultimate gift box. They have taken all the hard work out of baking delicious treats. From their iconic red velvet cupcake box to their new seasonal gingerbread cookie box, this company is my new go-to! Each ingredient needed is provided in the exact portion required. And if you have ever attempted gingerbread cookie making you would know that there are tons of ingredients! No worry, Red Velvet NYC boxes can be shipped and delivered right to your door; or sent to friends and family. They currently ship to many other states in the US! How exciting!
Need to look fabulous without breaking the bank well My Cents of Style will handle all your needs. I fell in love with this brand. They empower woman and leave us not only looking great but feeling great. I am not only saying that because they gifted us with the coziest blanket scarf wither. I absolutely loved the looks that Nicole and Sherri were wearing. Little did I know they both had on looks from My Cents of Style. Thanks for the fashion inspirations ladies! You both looked fabulous.
With all the decorating, shopping and holiday madness I am sure you will all be running from place to place carrying tons of bags and boxes. Can't keep track of your keys? No problem. O-Venture has the solution for all us busy moms! Keeping your keys close and not lost at the bottom of your giant mom bag is so just practical; I have to say I love this! So does Oprah! And who says a practical mom can't look fabulous doing it all! This beautifully leather bound bracelet comes with a small metal clasp to keep keys right were you need them... On your wrist! They have so many color options.. I picked a gorgeous rose gold metallic leather one that I can't wait to use. I also love the idea of attaching a small clutch or makeup bag too. Something to hold just my phone, chapstick and credit card. The necessities when you are on the go!
No holiday gathering is complete without a perfect glass of wine to help get you in the spirit! Noble Vines made sure to supply the event with the best selection of their delicious and affordable wines. The influences were lucky enough to try a few of their most popular. My favorite the chilled Rose'.
Well, if that wasn't enough each blogger went home with an other amazing gift bag... or should I say stocking!
I loved speaking to all the incredible brands! It really got me into the holiday spirit of gift giving! I love giving back and Mom Trends does too. Each blogger brought a toy to donate to Second Chance Toys which specializes in keeping plastic out of landfills and donating toys to kids in need.
