Mom’s Night Out! {Corsets & Cocktails Recap}

Please Note :: Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors who made Corsets & Cocktails a raving success – Top Drawer Lingerie, El Tiempo Cantina, The Tasting Room, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Tonya Torres, Beth Bills, BLVD Dentistry, European Wax Center, Massage Heights Town & Country, and all of our gracious swag and giveaway sponsors as well.  Also, we want to give a great big thank you to our friend Momma’s Gonna SNAP for all of the gorgeous pictures seen below too!

Goodness, we have been super busy here at Houston Moms Blog with events back to back to back the past few months {our 1st Birthday Bash, the Bump, Baby, & Beyond event, and play dates galore!}.  Meeting a good number of you guys in person makes all the hard work 100% worth it though.  Plus, these events have been a ton of fun, especially our Corsets & Cocktails mom’s night out at Top Drawer Lingerie.

Corsets & Cocktails Recap 1

First of all, Top Drawer is an absolutely stunning store with great intimates and some of the most fabulously comfortable pajama sets.  We’re so gracious to them for opening their space to us — it was the perfect venue.  Our bellies were filled with a delicious and plentiful spread from El Tiempo Cantina, an array of wine from The Tasting Room, and the most scrumptious little bundtinis from Nothing Bundt Cakes.  I mean, we seriously could not have asked for better food and treats at this event.  It was amazing!

As soon as our guests walked in, they were generously welcomed with a full sized bottle of perfume from W perfumes as a welcome gift just for coming out that evening.  {They also supplied one lucky winner with a gift basket filled with numerous fragrances AND they have a discount code for those of you would couldn’t make it to the event — more on that later!}  From there, our guests visited all of the fabulous table sponsors who make our events possible and so much fun to attend.  Tonya Torres, an independent Stella & Dot stylist, flanked the entry way with lovely jewels and pieces from the latest collection. I’m in love with all stuff pink, and Stella & Dot offers some gorgeous pink accessories right now. Beth Bills, with ItWorks!, was there with all of ItWorks! fabulousness.  Remember, I was pleasantly surprised with their ultimate body applicator here.   Now I’m in love with their greens.  And of course, our friends from BLVD Dentistry were there raffling off prizes, sharing beneficial information to help keep our smiles looking good, and passing out their own little bag of goodies to the attendees.

European Wax Center was also there and provided complimentary eyebrow waxes all night long. I love how trained their experts were in eyebrow styling, and many moms left with gorgeously groomed brows.  Across the store, Massage Heights Town & Country provided chair massages all night for attendees too. I mean it really didn’t get any better — pampering, relaxation, and retail therapy all in one place and all in one night!

Sure there was plenty of shopping and fabulous pampering, but above all that fabulousness was our partnership with The Rose for this event and directing the focus of the evening on spreading breast cancer awareness.  The Rose is a local non-profit breast cancer organization, and we were beyond honored to have them present at this event. Just like you mamas do at every event, you blew us away with all the new magazines and/or gently used books you donated to our reading drive for The Rose’s Houston area locations.  I know these reading materials will help the time pass quicker for the women who fill The Rose’s waiting rooms.  You guys also looked so great in all of your pink clothing and accessories!!!
