Holiday Mom Mixer 2013 Recap #MomMixer

 

Amazing day at 2013 Holiday Mom Mixer with @VaselineBrand. Over 200 attendees and 7 brands made for a very exciting day!

An incredible day that never would have been possible without the support of my partner Whitney and both of our families. Putting on an event like this is 100% a team effort and requires a zillion various details and the help and support of our closest friends – and our guests and sponsors who bring the day to life. We can’t thank everyone enough for making today such a wonderful success.

We’ll post our recap videos soon but here’s the skinny on today’s exciting moments. We’re all on a high after having such fabulous turnout and action packed day – after months of hard work and dreaming with my partner Whitney, @WhitneyMWS from Mommies with Style, there is no better feeling than to see all our guests and our own families enjoying themselves.

Lots of social media fun, great real life conversations, and incredible interactive experiences with each of the brands attending. Vaseline, our Title sponsor, set up mini makeovers for Moms to test our their BRAND NEW – as in just launched yesterday – Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips product and they had a fun photo booth to show off their Spray & Go Moisturizer.

Elmo showed up with Hasbro which was an enormous hit with all our littlest guest and our Moms. Everyone adores Elmo! Hasbro also set up an entire play area for kids in a Sesame themed playroom and they had super cute play centers for kids with tables & chairs, the new Rescue Bots Beam Box video game, the new Monopoly Empire, Princess Play Doh, and their Furby Booms.

Children’s Advil offered up Mini Massages to give Moms a chance to relax. And since having sick kids can be so stressful they stocked our guests upwithcrafts and coloring books to keep their little ones entertained on those days they are under weather.
