Last night we had the amazing opportunity to spend an evening with some of the best bloggers and talents around! Women from the Broadway show MAMMA MIA! to on-air personalities to many of the amazing writers that you read here every day showed up to help CafeMom, The Stir, Mamás Latinas, and CafeMom Studios throw one helluva party. You see ... we needed to break in our new headquarters over here on 5th Avenue anyway, so what better way to do it. We called our cocktail party Sugar & Spice and we drank, we danced, we ate ... and we even read some Fifty Shades of Grey. All in all, a rockin' time!
Our attendees left with an awesome gift bag, and we want share the love by giving you a chance to win one too. Featuring swag from Gilt Baby & Kids, Dunkin' Donuts, Godiva Liquor, Baileys, Babeland, John Barrett Braid Bar, and Lindt, this is definitely a bag you'll want to get your hands on.
So even though you couldn't be there with us -- we are thrilled to be able to give away some of these fantastic gift bags. Details are below -- but first ... check out some of the action!
A few of our awesome guests enjoying the delicious drinks and catering from Divalicious Catering. Our signature drink was a jalapeno margarita with a rim of cayenne pepper ... man did it have a kick!
A mini caprese salad -- served by a flurry of hot guys. Not sure how the caterer managed to ensure each server was buff and sweet on the eyes -- but he did!
The drinks were flowing ...
Getting down with some Burlesque lessons by Jo Weldon of the New York School of Burlesque. These women knew learned how to shake it!
Music was strong and always flowing ... DJ Osato Ukponmwan made sure there was never a dull moment!
Wine and braids ... Absolutely!
Some amazing bloggers chatting each other up! Great having old friends and new all in the same room.
Mmmmm, holy sweet tooth! If the margaritas were our spice, then this sugar made it well worth it.
