{2017 RECAP} Bloom :: An Event for New & Expecting Moms

A tremendous thank you to our community partners for their generosity and sponsorship of this event. Bloom would not have been possible without their unending support, and we are forever grateful for the opportunity to link arms with them on this special celebration of motherhood!

To say our third annual event was a success would be quite the understatement, and to kick-off this recap, we want to start off by thanking a few incredible partners who were part of making Bloom 2017 not only possible, but unforgettable too.  Members of our team were greeting and hosting in style thanks to Create A Shirt who provided beautiful and oh-so-comfy custom t-shirts adorning our “mama” logo!  Some may have been lucky enough to meet a fellow Houston mama and our talented event photographer, La Vie Photography, who was on-hand perfectly capturing photos to showcase the overall event experience down to the most special details.  Speaking of details, our main gathering space was set-up to impress thanks to Sky High Party Rentals who graciously provided our event rentals which showcased a fraction of their inventory collections.  Working with these local businesses was such a privilege, and we cannot recommend them enough for all of your needs as well!

We also want to give a *huge* hand to our presenting sponsors –  Next Level Urgent Care and The Motherhood Center – who transformed our vision for the event into a reality exceeding all expectations.  When moms arrived, whether individually, with friends or family, or even toting their new bundle, they were warmly welcomed and could instantly immerse themselves into the mix.  As unique as each of the rooms were, the evening was spent seamlessly flowing through the spaces with helpful information, luxurious pampering, and yummy food in every corner.  After some mixing and mingling, the group gathered for our Expert Panel Q&A which was led by our presenting sponsors who graciously shared their wealth of knowledge through a casual and candid session on everything from labor to breastfeeding to health and wellness for even the littlest of babes.

Our list of amazing and gracious sponsors is far from ending! We had representatives from some of our favorite brands on-site and excited to share new products and recommendations across so many different facets of all things motherhood.  Our awesome friends Baby Boot Camp, who serve communities all around Houston, were there sharing their expertise in pregnancy and postpartum health and fitness.  Cozy Cheekz brought some of their innovative, not to mention darling, nursery and on-the-go items for us to see and touch {and fall in love with}.  We always enjoy taking a look at the newest products from Happy Family, who was there with an impressive spread of must-haves including their organic superfoods cookbook! Where information met relaxation, we had neighbors from Rice Village, Origins, with so many of their rejuvenating products on hand to try. And topping off our pampering station was makeup artistry by Kismet Cosmetics who had fun and colorful collections for a fresh look we loved getting to try.

All that to say, the event worked up some appetites we satisfied by bringing in two undisputed crowd pleasers… Chick-Fil-A and Tiff’s Treats. Hungry or not, cravings were met with options each stacked high including mouth watering sandwiches, over-the-top wraps and fresh fruit.  And shamelessly enjoyed after {and before} the main courses were the melt in your mouth cookies from Tiff’s Treats which were delivered minutes before the event and handed out warm –  so we really never stood a chance against the temptation.

At this year’s Bloom event, we were so excited to feature Books Between Kids as our featured charity whose mission is to serve Houston’s at-risk children by providing them with books to build their own home libraries.  Since 2013, BBK has already distributed nearly 700,000 books, and thanks to those of you who brought in donations, this number continues to climb!  

And of course, we can’t wrap up the recap without mentioning those coveted giveaways and swag bags… We are beyond grateful to the generous swag and giveaway sponsors below who spoiled our attendees with oodles of goodies to take home.  We are raving fans of each and every brand you see below, and we encourage you to connect with them all to learn more and try them for yourselves too!



And of course, we can’t wrap up this recap without thanking all of the new and expecting mamas who joined us for this special event! Thank you for carving time out of your busy schedule and allowing us to celebrate, pamper, and get to know you.  It was truly our pleasure, and we hope to see you at many more Houston Moms Blog events in the future!

Kathryn, a Texas gal through and through, moved to Houston after graduating from Texas A&M University {whoop!} with a degree in Tourism & Hospitality Management. Formerly a special events guru for the Houston Astros, Kathryn had a short stint in tax consulting before getting back to her creative roots with HMB! While not yet a mom, there are wedding bells in May for Kathryn and her soon-to-be hubby Mark. Her overly organized nature has certainly come in handy this past year - balancing planning for those upcoming nuptials and completing home renovation projects on a fixer upper {your average Chip & Joanna Gaines wannabes}. In what free time remains, Kathryn loves spending time baking, sipping red wine, and working out ... breaking even with the sweets and spirits.
