MomTrends Holiday Soiree #FestiveHoliday

Momtrends Holiday Soiree


So as we are about to get sucked into venture into the holiday season there are tons of fun holidays gifts you can shop for. Momtrends hosted a really great event with some really great holiday gifts ideas.

The event was held at the Roberta Freymann store in TriBeCa. As soon as I walked in I was overwhelmed by the amazing patterns and prints, this store was so much fun!



The first table I approached was Welchs. They have so many new fun products like smoothies and ice bars–all with no high fructose corn syrup! I know my kid LOVES icees so I have to get some for him, quick!


The smoothies were super easy and fun too and Monica from SoFamilyOnline did a quick 2 minute presentation of how to make them.


Loved it!! This is perfect to keep in your freezer for a nice anytime snack (for all of us!)

Next I walked over to fruit of the loom who brought Santa along!

After that I eased my way over to Telefora who had some amazing arrangements for holiday settings for the table. There were also some fun cookie jars for the kiddos as well!






The store itself was gorgeous and here were some of the fun prints and items that they sold. As you can see Nicole is wearing the brand–jewelry and all!




After that I went to check out Vitabath and they had some amazing smelling bath soaps and lotions and I am such a sucker for all of that! They even have a peppermint smelling lotion that smelled scrumptious.


We were able to socialize a bit and then I headed home. The event was fabulous as usual and the gift bag was pretty awesome.

Are you ready for the holidays? Would you purchase any of these gifts?

  1. I love that clutch with the hand strap! So much holiday cheer (and amazing clothes!) on one site. I’m overwhelmed. I can only imagine how you felt being there! I guess the holidays are in full swing. I had better get my a** in gear and get to shopping!!!

  2. Those smoothies look delicious and I am a huge fan of Vitabath, so the Peppermint smelling lotion is truly right up my alley. Looked like a great night and love all the events you get to go to and share with us!! :)

  8. We have a Christmas gift tradition that we started a few years ago when the gift buying became overwhelming. The boys have a list with sections titled Something I Want, Something I Need, Something to Wear, Something to Read and Something to Give. They can add as many things to the list as they want but will get just one thing from each section. In the Something to Give section they choose the charity they want to support and how they want to give back.

    So far I have picked up one gift, every year I say I’m going to be more organized and it never happens. LOVE that clutch, I would buy that for myself.

  14. Definitely not ready for the holidays. My blog has me so occupied in between my normal mommy and wifely duties. I definitely have to find these sweet potato muffis recipe I wanted still so forth and so on. You look like you had such a great time. I, too, love print now. It’s just so adorable. Welch’s doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup? That’s great. Those smoothies look like they can be great for the kids and adults. :)

    • haha, I know the holidays have definitely snuck up on us! The smoothies are delicious, I totally bought some for my house on my last shopping trip this weekend.

  15. That is the skinniest Santa I’ve ever seen! I do love that black and pearl necklace…and bet my sister would love it too. Looks like you had a great time!

  16. I of course am in the spirit and ready for the holiday! All of the pictures are fabulous Nellie! This place was beautiful!

  17. I haven’t seen those Welcher’s Ice Bars around but the hunt is own! They’ll be the perfect snack for JJ since he’s allergic to soy and can’t have soy or dairy ice cream.

  18. What a terrific event! I think I would purchase all of it. I would have been in big trouble if I went in there.

    My favorite is that there is no HFCS in the smoothies and icees. Yeah!
