Every mom needs a mom’s night out. Because if adulting is hard, mom-ing is even harder. We all need a break now and then. Who else is with me on this?? So when I heard that MomTrends and Parents Magazine were hosting another mom’s night out (see last year’s recap here), I jumped at the opportunity to mingle and mix with my favorite NYC mom bloggers.
Parents Magazine the mom’s magazine that we’ve all grown to love and trust prepared for us, must-have mom juice (aka wine), delectable finger foods and the most Instagram-able make-your-own treats bar!
I went straight to this dessert station and couldn’t wait to get started on my own funny-faced food! I love making fun art and treats with Juliet so I made sure to learn all the tips and tricks so I could share with all of you! With these tips, there are endless ways you can get creative at home too!
- TIP1 use peanut butter to stick candy eyes onto your food
- TIP2 use edible markers to create fun faces
- TIP 3 use honey to rim your glasses before dipping them into candy sprinkles
Another fun installation was the customizable perfume area. We sniffed our way through the scent station, chose our base fragrances and built our own, customized fragrance! Juliet is going to be so jealous when she learns about this! She would love doing this one day. I love vanilla and fruity scents and this was just such fun getting to do this with one another.
Clorox was on-site helping to clean up and disinfect all our craft messes. We made our own snow globes with adorable Christmas trinkets (hot glued to a lid), and added sprinkles, glycerin and water for our very own shakable holiday scene. I love crafting so I got really into this.
It’s great to know that with all of life’s messes, us moms can effectively and quickly clean up. Knowing that germs, bacteria, dirt and grime are one swipe away with these Clorox disinfecting wipes assures my neat freak side. I feel like every household needs to stock up on Clorox products! Whether it’s cleaning up goo-ey craft spills, wiping away a kitchen counter or spot-cleaning bathroom messes, you can rest assured that 99.9% of the germs and bacteria will be removed. I don’t know about you but I am way more productive and creative in a clean space. And I encourage tidying and cleaning up with Juliet to instill these values and habits early on.
Baby Dove is a brand that moms love and trust even for their babies’ sensitive skin. Their prebiotic moisture helps protect babies’ natural protective layer of microbiome. And it nourishes as it protects with 100% skin-natural ingredients. We got to customize these cute shower/organizer bins and fill them at the event. And after a little wine, we all wanted to pop out of their Instagramable photo station.
Thank you MomTrends and Parents Magazine for having me! It was a fun and memorable way to enjoy a mom’s night out!
