The Best of Bloom 2018: Memories, Photos, and More


Last month we celebrated new and expecting moms at Bloom, one of our largest events of the year.  We love seeing this event grow year after year and are feel so incredibly honored to continue to have the opportunity to gather moms, moms-to-be, dads, grandparents and friends in our community to celebrate motherhood!  This incredible event took place in 46 of our City Moms Blog Network Sister Sites with over 5,000 people in attendance!!! 

We have many people to thank for making this event a reality but we would like to start by thanking our title sponsor, barre3, and our venue (for the second year in a row!), the Children’s Museum of Phoenix.  Barre3 Scottsdale hosted our first Bloom event and we are so happy to continue to grow our partnership with them as well as with their other locations in the valley: Paradise Valley, Chandler and North Peoria! We are truly passionate about connecting moms with amazing local businesses, and this is the best example of actioning that mission.

How gorgeous are these photos?! The uber talented Agnes & Art Photo documented our event again this year. And how about that food mamas?!?!  Thank you to Whole Foods Market for serving up such delicious eats and sweets!!!  The kale salad, sesame tofu and macaroons were my personal favorites… thanks also to Fractured Prune Doughnuts for the assortment of decadent donuts! 

Thank you to our returning event sponsor Royalty Rentals and our floral sponsor Arizona Florations… our event room (the newly renovated event space at the museum!) was absolutely GORGEOUS!!!  And a huge shout out goes to Megan Higgins Photography for our step and repeat photos!    

Every Bloom attendee went home with a swag bag* stuffed to the brim with goodies for mom and baby as well as a beautiful and delicious cookie from Lisa’s Sweets and Treats. Mamas also had the chance to win over $7500 in giveaways from our sponsors (all listed in this post).  *VIP attendees swag bags included FREE blowouts from our partners at Drybar!!!
