Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Momtrends Holiday Event. I was pretty excited to read that it was being hosted at the Stella & Dot showroom in NYC. (This blog is called A Little Glitter after all and Mama loves herself some jewels!)
Immediately upon entering the space I came across my other love – COOKIES! I could tell this was going to be a good night. The sweet treats below (how cute are they?) were provided by Walkers Shortbread and there was someone on hand decorating them. One of the things that Nicole Feliciano of Momtrends discussed with the group was the concept of spending time celebrating the holidays and creating traditions with your families that are just for you. As bloggers we do tend to photograph EVERYTHING and I am looking forward to spending time with Taylor and my husband that is not publicly shared. I think decorating shortbread would be a great way to unplug and celebrate the season.
After admiring the cookies, I headed over to the Lands End table and admired the things they brought to display. There were some beautiful item that would make fabulous gifts and a lot of them are also able to be monogrammed. (How comfy and cute are those slippers?) Sidenote, this throw was included in my gift bag and my husband is OBSESSED with it. It is super soft and he has used it every night while watching TV on the couch since the event.
The next vendor that I met really knocked my socks off! I See Me! Personalized Children’s Books are now my new go-to gift for children. The website is extremely easy to use and the turnaround time is only two weeks from door to door. You choose a book that the recipient will like and add pictures and information to customize the story for them. I made one last week for my transportation loving nephew about cars. I should be getting it next week. Keep your eyes peeled for a review!
We also got to hear from Marie Ackerman, Vice President of Education at Teleflora. She showed us the lovely decor below and gave tips on how to create beautiful tablescapes. My favorite idea was to put flowers in the bathroom. Chances are that each guest will visit it at some point and most hosts don’t think to decorate in there. I thought that was a really great tip!
The team at Little Me really dazzled me. I couldn’t get over the little plaid pajamas and the fact that all their items (even their Holiday Collection) are quite affordable. They are currently running a promotion on their Instagram where you and a friend can possibly win a $50 gift card and they have sweetly offered my readers a discount code. Enter GLITTER20 to save 20% on your order. This code is good until November 26th.
I had been scoping out the Stella & Dot section from the corner of my eye for a while before I was able to make my way over there and let me just say – it did not disappoint! I loved their statement necklaces and I actually bought two wish bracelets right on the spot for Taylor’s tutoring teachers. They are so fabulous and only $19! Each bracelet comes with it’s own gift envelope and it feels substantial and not cheap. It is a really great gift idea and I am going to buy a few more for Christmas presents.
Thank you to the lovely ladies at Momtrends for having me and to the sponsors:
