Disclosure: All of our events are made possible by our amazing sponsors. Thank you to First Look for both sponsoring this event and for inviting our readers and guests into their cozy "home" (the converted uptown home on Magazine offers the perfect atmosphere for their special services). Thank you as well to all of the amazing swag and giveaway sponsors that are participating in this event and making it extra special for the new, expectant and future moms in attendance.
Do you remember seeing your baby on ultrasound for the first, second or third time? Do you remember what it felt like to hear the beat, beat, beat of the heart from within your womb? For many of us those were special moments to cherish for a lifetime. Our sponsors, First Look 3D/4D Ultrasound, specialize in making those moments all the more special. With a warm boutique-like feel, top of the line equipment and plenty of room to bring special family members, First Look is the perfect place in New Orleans for a gender determination, 4D pictures, to host a baby shower or pick up a gift for a new bundle of joy. For all of the above reasons and more, our team (who has 5 expecting mamas among us; yes, there may be something in the water) is THRILLED to announce our upcoming event, "Women in Bloom: An Exclusive Evening at First Look."
If you all have been following the blog for any length of time you know that our events have been selling out at lightning speed - thus, when we say this event is "exclusive," we mean it. We will be selling ONLY 25 VIP tickets (at $60/ticket) to this event, and it is our hope that those purchasing tickets are either currently expecting OR hoping/planning to be expectanting soon. To be clear, this event will be targeted specifically towards the interests of mamas to be (so all swag and giveaways are truly oriented to the "new baby" stage of life). Ticket holders will be treated to a night of cocktails and mocktails (9months is the official mocktail sponsor with sparkling red and white for all pregnant mamas), light appetizers, music, shopping in the First Look boutique, amazing swag, and the opportunity to win some killer giveaways.
