Millennial Mamma Boozy Brunch

If I had to describe the afternoon in one word, that word would be EPIC. Millennial Mamma launched almost two years ago, and this platform has exceeded what I ever thought it would be. It literally started as an idea. That idea was me writing about returning to work after maternity leave. I was so eager to get back into my career, but I was also nervous to be away from my little one. From there, I continued writing and sharing my motherhood experience, and the Millennial Mamma community continued to grow.

I knew I eventually wanted to host events, but I didn’t know when I would find the time. I also knew the first event was going to be a brunch. No formal agenda, just a laid back atmosphere with good food, drinks, music and great energy. So in late 2019, I just picked a date and committed to it. That’s the only way I was going to get it done! I checked out a few venues, and found a beautiful space that was fairly new. I reached out to the owner(s) to schedule a visit. When I arrived at dE Lux Suite, I was greeted by Faith, who owned the space with her husband. What I thought would be a quick 10 minute visit turned into a good 75 minutes of talking. We found out we both shared so much in common (especially motherhood), and I also learned that she was an event planner. In that same visit, I hired her to also handle the decor, because I really just wanted to show up on the day of the event. I know I could’ve gathered my girlfriends together to help me set up and decorate, but I didn’t want to put that stress on myself or others. I really wanted everyone to show up and enjoy their much needed time away from mothering. One lesson I have learned in motherhood, is sometimes you have to pay for convenience and peace of mind. I always believe in hiring people who are passionate about their craft. That’s better than me doing a half-ass job. Plus, my time was better spent on things I really enjoy.

In addition to the venue and decor, I wanted to utilize as many mom-owned businesses as vendors. It was no surprise I was able to accomplish that, because us mammas are freaking dope! Catering, DJ, bar, photography, desserts and giveaways were all mom-owned businesses. It made me so proud to create a space for us, by us. This space was filled with 40 women, laughing, letting go of their worries, and sharing experiences over unlimited {MOM}osas. You know, like a mimosa but way stronger!

The Millennial Mamma Boozy Brunch was just the first of many events. I can’t wait to see how this community will flourish, and how us mammas will “reclaim our time.”
