I am honestly still on such a high from this past weekend’s Treat Yourself Mother’s Day pop up event! Thanks to all the mamas / families that showed up, shopped, and decorated a bag for a really great cause. You made my heart so happy! Each vendor who participated was incredible too! In case you weren’t able to stop by, here are all the details:

Let me start by setting the scene … Our friends and fellow planners of this event, Lesa and Ariella, are the proud owners of bryck&mortar (a fabulous space in the Brentwood Town Center for local clothing, accessory, and lifestyle brands to pop up). This was the perfect place to set up our event.

Their featured brands for the month of May (Wilma and Ethel and Panik Ryder), provided amazing shopping experiences for all of our guests and donated part of their proceeds to the cause as well.

When guests arrived, they were greeted by this gorgeous display of flowers and other fun materials to share with the people of Brentwood what we are all about!

Amanda from Amanda Rose Florals was creating adorable mini bouquets on the spot for all of the moms in attendance.

My favorite moment of this entire event was getting the opportunity to pass out her creations … So many smiling appreciative faces! The truth is, being a mom is an under appreciated job! We should find opportunities to celebrate our moms, mom friends, and ourselves more often. Hence the name of this event … Treat yourself! We wanted all the mamas out there to allow themselves to do something for them for once. Why not buy your own gift this year? Get a much needed massage? Take a fun work out class? So many options … So little time!

Speaking of treating yourself … Another friend, fellow #momboss, and host of this event, Rachel of Rachel Miriam, was featuring her Molly Sims x RM Sweetheart, Sparkle, and Neon collections benefiting Baby2Baby. So many moms left with adorable bags customized to say whatever they chose, and Molly Sims brought her whole family to support our event as well! What a great day!

I love that Rachel thought to do on-site personalization at this event! There’s something so mesmerizing about watching her machine create letters in fun fonts and threads spelling out initials, names, favorite sayings, or whatever you can dream up!

Rachel and Molly put together a little activity for a big donation. Guests were asked to decorate a bag and fill it with mama essentials (lotion, chapstick, an eye mask, and a sweet note) to give to a mother in need. I love how they turned out and love even more that this was done for such a great cause!

What else do moms want? Coffee and pastries were provided by Le Pain Quotidien.

We all could not get enough of Kiev Morales‘ violin renditions of all of our favorite tunes!

Platefit brought out their Theragun for a little de-stress action! But really … What is Lauren’s husband Scott doing there? Isn’t this supposed to be for moms? LOL! I guess he does deserve a break since he had all three kids for the day. 

Moms love activities that keep their kids busy and happy. Right? Thank you M & K Entertainment for your special balloon styling which our kids all loved!

Another great activity for both moms and their kids! Flash tattoos are oh so fun!

Us girls posed for a pic with Molly in the Brass Street photo booth! I am super excited to have a special keepsake from this day with my little girl too!

As a group, we felt the most important thing for all of our guests to feel after this event was special and pampered. We put together raffle prizes sponsored by Molly Sims x RM, Cos Bar, Hey Day, and Squeeze to add a bonus “treat” for three of the moms who attended. Gotta love that even the gift wrap of these prizes matched the look of this party!

Thank you to all who participated in this special pop up event; @panik_ryder @wilma_ethel @baby2baby @amandaroseflorals @brass.streetbooth @kievmoralesviolin @platefit @lepainquotidienusa @squeeze @heyday @cosbar and especially our girls Lesa and Ariella @bryckandmortar and Rachel @rachelmiriamla! A special thank you to the moms out there and @mollybsims for providing us all another opportunity to collaborate with each other and put on an event for a great cause!
