PSMM Holiday Party {Introducing Cyber Monday Events}

By November 30, 2011 Events, Party 8 Comments

Back in the summertime, I got it in my head that I wanted to have a holiday party for our Philly Social Media Moms — something fun and festive where everyone could just hang out and visit and maybe take home a fun gift or three. Debbie and Sarah offered to help, and suddenly Cyber Monday Events was born!

The idea behind Cyber Monday Events is to have one last hurrah before the holiday season, where brands can get their best products into the hands of influential mom bloggers and in front of their audiences. We were overwhelmed with the response we received when we pitched our idea to some of our favorite brands, and soon we had our Party Sponsors lined up and many offers for swag and giveaway prizes.

Mega thanks to Little Miss Muffin, KooKoo Birds, and BigJigs Toys for making this night possible.

Our event was graciously hosted by Dave & Busters at the Plymouth Meeting location. They had recently renovated a room for hosting group parties such as this one, and we were thrilled with this beautiful space.


During and after the party, attendees took advantage of the games, and I hear there was a pretty competitive game of Skeeball going on down there!

Bai supplied us with plenty of their delicious coffeefruit drinks, and we had wine from a local winery, Paradocx Vineyards. We all loved the presentation in decorative paint cans.

And let’s just say, everyone took home way more than three gifts. Our swag bags were filled to overflowing. Our swag bags included items from many of those brands as well as Fairy Tales Hair Care, Horizon Dairy, Mabel’s Labels, Ohanarama, Avon and Suave.


Besides that, we raffled off over 20 big-ticket items from Little Miss Muffin, KooKoo Birds, BigJigs Toys, Corolle, Paddywhack Lane, KaZAM Bikes, LEGO, Villeroy & Boch, ASTRA, and Bai.

Cradles to Crayons was there as well, as our charity partner. Attendees brought socks and underwear to donate to needy families in our area.


I think it’s safe to say, a good time was had by all!

Thanks again to our sponsors for making this event possible!
