Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Mother of All Baby Showers (MOABS) – Luxe Edition event for Washington, D.C., held at the Sheraton Hotel in Tyson’s Corner, Virginia.
One Stop Baby Shop
For any woman who is expecting, the Mother of All Baby Showers is a great place to start when it comes to finding the right items you will need for your new baby, connecting with brands, and enjoying a night out. Options change every year and there are plenty of suppliers on hand showing much needed several products and services.
For the past few years, I have enjoyed seeing several sponsors consistently, such as Diono, MomTV, Baby K’tan, Dorie Howell photography and more.
Relax and Enjoy a Night Out
This year’s MOABS Luxe Edition event added a special touch being held inside a ballroom at the Sheraton. It was the perfect atmosphere to accommodate sponsors and guests comfortably. There were plenty of tables for seating and guests were treated to a nice dinner, including drinks from the bar, and drinks and desserts from sponsors.
There was also no shortage of pampering for guests which made the night out even more enjoyable for those in need of a nice pamper session.
With so many products to buy when having a baby it makes it a lot easier to find brands that you will love in this type of setting.
See What’s in Store for Baby
I had my eyes on the Chicco car seats since my baby will be making the transition from his infant car seat soon. It’s always nice to know what comes next. Chicco brought several of their products and provided really helpful information for those trying to decide what is best for their babies.
A new addition to the baby shower this year was Mother Nurture Enhanced Water and Chocolate Truffles. I enjoyed reviewing this brand from Maria Bailey a few months ago and it was the perfect setting to introduce expecting and lactating mothers to this healthy and delicious treat.
The Luxe Edition shower wasn’t just a nice night out for moms-to-be, but also for partners and friends. There was plenty to see and enjoy. Door prizes were given away by raffles and we had so much fun anticipating who was going to win.
Lucky me…my husband and I walked away with the nicest mid-century rocking chair and a gold moroccan pouf ottoman for our new baby from Bratt Decor. These pieces are beautiful additions to our nursery makeover in progress.
I wasn’t the only winner of the night. Everyone who attended was given the nicest parting gift, a diaper bag from Baby K’Tan filled with many wonderful baby products that will come in handy.
