Bloom 2017 :: An Event Recap


We were so honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to gather over 125 Colorado Springs area moms two weeks ago to celebrate motherhood. In partnership with CSHP and Little Sunshine’s Preschool and Playhouse, we welcomed dozens of mothers and moms-to-be to Bloom, an event designed specifically for new and expectant moms in the Colorado Springs Area.

The Venue :: Banning Lewis Ranch Academy

Banning Lewis Ranch Academy graciously opened their doors on a Saturday morning and hosted this awesome group of moms.  The gym was a light and spacious setting for all our wonderful vendors to set up. After sifting through our many wonderful tables, we opened the stunning barn doors to head into the cafeteria for lunch. 

The Food :: Kneaders Bakery & Cafe, Salsa Brava, Costco, Albion Tea Company, Third Space Coffee and Whole Foods Market

YUM!  Whole Foods Market brought an amazing spread of breakfast foods, juices, and healthy snacks.  We love the healthy goodness that Whole Foods Market provides.  Their table was a hot spot with all the moms as they made their way into the event. Albion Tea Company and Third Space Coffee provided drinks as the moms walked around. Kneaders Bakery & Cafe, Salsa Brava and Costco went above and beyond with their catered lunch. Lunch included a variety of sandwiches, as well as several large signature salads.  And then…what mom can resist some fabulous pastries for dessert.
