When :: Saturday, August 22 {7:00pm – 11:00pm}

It is our hope that the night will be a treat from start to finish. Note :: this is not a sit down dinner; instead, envision yourself at a 90s themed cocktail party created just with you in mind! We hope to take you on a trip down memory lane!

Other details :: We hope to take you on a trip down memory lane and encourage costumes and general 90s merriment / accessories! The sky is the limit, friends. Although parking is not as much of an issue this year, we do recommend that you carpool with friends, take a cab, or even have your husband drop you off. We ask that everyone drinks responsibly and makes arrangements for safe transportation. You deserve a night out but we want everyone to be safe!

Swag Sponsors ::

This year we are trying something new and allowing all of our lovely guests to “shop the swag.” We’ll have lots of fun swag readily available, and you can stuff your own swag bag with whatever appeals to you! There will also be swag found at vendor tables throughout the venue; this way you can snag WHAT you want, WHEN you want. But unlike events of the past, you will not be handed a pre-assembled bag, based in large part on feedback from you all! This way you can eat, drink, dance and socialize without toting more than you want.

 Pomchies :: Fresh Wave :: Kind Bars :: Weleda :: Nuttzo :: Luzianne Tea :: McDonald’s :: La Croix :: Vita Coco (Limited Quantity) :: Zatarain’s :: Downy :: Boogie Wipes :: Febreze :: Crunchmaster :: Nurse Nikki

A Special Thanks to Hasbro Games and Wigwam Socks for contributing to the festivities. 

If you think back to summer nights and sleepovers in the 90’s we’re sure you can recall playing games like Twister, Battleship and Connect 4! Thanks to Hasbro Games, we’ll have a variety of board games set up for you to enjoy while you reminisce, shop and dance the night away. Our team will also be sporting the only socks you ever wore in the 90’s … WIGWAMS! We can’t wait to see what fun outfits you come up with, too!

The best way to share all of the fun and compliment the wonderful companies involved is by utilizing social media (of course!). Feel free to tag your posts and follow along using #NOMBMomsNight

If you happen to miss a shot, do not worry because we will again have several professional photographers on hand to capture all of the fun. We look forward to having Tiffany McEntee Photography and Brittany Dudley Photography join us!

#NOMBGivesBack :: Charity of Choice is Communities in Schools of Greater New Orleans

As with all of our major events, we have chosen a charity of choice, this time it is Communities in Schools of Greater New Orleans whose mission and goals focus on surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. As moms, we understand that all parents desire an education for their Communities In Schoolschildren. We also know full well that the ability to provide does not always sync with the things we want most for our children. To that end, we are asking our awesome readers to donate to this worthy cause whose mission is to empower our youth of NOLA to stay in school and earn their education.

The mission of Communities In Schools of Greater New Orleans is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.  As the local affiliate of the nation’s largest and most effective dropout prevention network, we do whatever it takes to keep kids on a path toward graduation. No student wants to drop out of school, but they often face seemingly insurmountable obstacles, such as poverty, bullying, trauma, and homelessness.  CIS of Greater New Orleans connects kids with the resources to overcome these obstacles so they can focus on learning and ultimately graduate prepared for a promising future.

Most Needed Items (Where YOU Come IN) ::

  • Pencils
  • Art supplies
  • Socks and underwear, boys or girls, in the original packaging (Note: You can’t imagine what demand there is for these. It goes to the bullying issue due to hygiene, as well as the “safety net” that we are when a youngster has an accident.)
  • Youth toothbrushes, as well as toothpaste (Note: Incredibly preventive as most people have no idea the health problems you have as an adult if you don’t have good oral hygiene.)

How Can You Help?

We would love it if you would join us in the spirit of giving and bring school supplies for the schools in need in our area. In exchange, you will be entered to win a giveaway basket just for moms at their table at the event itself. If you would like to learn more about how you can help, please click here.

Thank you again to all of our major sponsors that are partnering with our team to make this event a success. If you have not yet, click HERE to buy your tickets!

No tickets will be sold at the door, and you must be registered to attend (so we can plan effectively). When the tickets are sold out, we will be unable to release more (no exceptions).

Disclaimers: ALL TICKET SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS. NO RAIN CHECKS.THIS EVENT WILL HAPPEN RAIN OR SHINE. In the event of an act of God (such as a hurricane) we cannot reschedule due to the complex nature of the event. In the event that you cannot attend the event we will do our best to assist you in finding another mom to exchange/give/or sell your ticket if the need arises and/or if time allows. Additionally, everyone that purchases a ticket will be subscribed to our email list (if they have not been already) in order to provide the most timely and up to date event info. Photos will be taken at the event and of attendees for use on the blog and on social media by the New Orleans Moms Blog and sponsors. All attendees must be 21+ years of age.

    90s prom is my jam! Question, is this geared more towards just the mamas or are dads welcome to come too? Can’t decide whether to bring Zack Morris with me or just leave him at home 😉

    Kelly, We LOVE the Saved by the Bell reference! So fun! So this event is geared towards women so leave Zack at home and come have fun with Lisa and Jessie!
