Bloom 2018 :: Mother’s Day Brunch For New and Expectant Moms

We couldn’t be happier that Bloom, a celebration of all things motherhood specifically designed for new moms and moms-to-be, is back at New Orleans Moms Blog for the 4th year in a row! This popular Mother’s Day event is a favorite for expectant New Orleans moms or those who are thinking of expanding their family. This is indeed a kid-free event, with the exception of young nurslings. It is rare that we as moms can get out and about on our own, and Bloom is all about taking a morning off and getting away from the routine for a celebration that’s all about YOU.

New Orleans Moms Blog is known for producing high quality events for New Orleans moms, families and children! We look forward to seeing your family soon and also encourage you to join the Facebook Group for additional fun updates!

Charity of Choice :: 2018 Bloom

For this year’s event, we have selected  the Junior League of New Orleans’ Diaper Bank as our charity of choice. The intention is to close the diaper gap for women with children and lessen the impact of that need on the emotional and financial health of the women and in turn, their families. Every woman, regardless of her educational, financial, or religious background can empathize with the need we all have to care for our loved ones, particularly children. JLNO’s Diaper Bank will collect diapers and distribute them to organizations that provide direct service to the community.

In order to be eligible to enter giveaways at the event, you must donate diapers. For every diaper donated, you will receive one raffle ticket. Please see below for the  diaper guidelines:

  • Unused disposable diapers can be of any type, size, and brand.
  • All sizes will be accepted with a preference for sizes 3 and above.
  • Opened packages of diapers are acceptable. Please label them with the size if they are not donated in their original package.

Unopened unused wipes and diaper creams are also appreciated.

Please note that we cannot accept cloth diapers.  Many of those in need use public laundry facilities, which do not permit washing cloth diapers for hygiene reasons. Accordingly, this is a disposable diaper collection only.
