Looking to connect with other moms, learn about important parenting topics, discover the best baby products on the market, and enjoy a night of pampering? Then the Mother Of All Baby Showers is just the baby shower for you!
The Mother Of All Baby Showers is celebrating its 5th year. This unique event is for expectant parents and experienced parents alike, with a strong focus on topics related to pregnancy, baby, and toddler.
Last month I was invited by the M.O.A.B.S. team to attend their 2017 kick-off event The Mother of All Baby Showers Luxe Edition event in Tysons Corner, VA.
Upon arrival attendees enjoyed drinks, a main course pasta buffet, and dessert. We also had the chance to sample some great snacks and treats from Lacroix, Cabot, Honest Tea, Pretzel Crisps, and Randy Cakes.
Along the hallway and inside our meeting space there were various vendor tables set up. Represented were the best in baby photographers, car seats, baby toys, baby gear, and more.
Event partners and vendors included:
- Bratt Decor
- Babies “R” Us
- Dorie Howell Photography
- A Loving Embrace Birth Services
- Mead Johnson Nutrition
- Mother Nurture
- Baby Jack & Company
- Baby K’Tan
- Solu Publishing
- Washington Parent Magazine
- Little Oaks Montessori Academy
Attendees enjoyed hand massages, makeup applications, and hair styling provided by Aveda.
The Learning Sessions
Educational sessions ranged from carseat safety and childhood academic development, to family photography and top nursery decor trends. Keynote speaker Maria Bailey, the host of MomTalk Radio and Co-founder of Mother Nurture also offered tips on how to be a product-savvy parent in today’s overwhelming marketplace.
There were a TON of giveaway items throughout the event! Upon registration we were given a handful of tickets. During the evening they pulled tickets from a large bowl to select giveaway winners. There were a ton of items given away: everything from multiple designer luxury cribs, a photography session, spa package, a new car seat, a Chico double stroller, and more.
All attendees received some awesome swag including a Baby K’tan diaper bag, Baby Jack & Company lovey, Solu premier membership, and more.
