What a wonderful world we live in that we can all come together over shoes. The Novato Mothers Club had it’s annual DSW night and once again, it was a great one!
Our Moms Night Out committee of Azadeh H., Mona C., and Jenn L., did an outstanding job putting together a wonderful evening. While a total of 34 members that RSVP’d for the event, 39 members actually showed up and a few more even dropped by later! All were able to shop with a 20% discount on regularly-priced items and 10% off sales and clearance items!
They passed out beads to each mom- the colour of the beads indicated what age your child(ren) is. Moms could then strike up conversations with each other, facilitating more interactions between our members, old and new.
After snacking on cheese, crackers, and dessert bites, the mamas got their shop on:
Additionally, the DSW event was one of our events where NMC was aiding the Friends of Novato Library’s Book Place by having a book drive. Members were encouraged to bring in books to help in replenishing their Children’s Book section. We had a total of 93 books donated (and 2 DVDs) to help out the Friends of Novato Library!
All four of our co-directors were in attendance too!
From the committee: “It was another amazing and wonderful event. All the mamas had a wonderful time along with making some new friends and welcomed some new members. Our very own board member Andrea S. won the $25.00 gift card raffle and DSW’s profit from our group alone was $5,591.00. Great job to all and thank you to all that came and made the evening such a great success. Here is to another wonderful MNO at Crystal Nails in November.”
Thanks again to our Moms Night Out committee! You guys did a wonderful job, as always!
The Novato Mother’s Club kicked off our new 2015-2016 year with a fantastic night of meet, greet, eat and drink at Las Guitarras.
It was another successful event with a great turnout. Thank you to all the wonderful mamas that attended and welcomed all the new moms that have joined our club. We had a total of 36 RSVPs and 31 moms joined us that night!
Moms enjoyed an wonderful evening outside sipping on margaritas and munching on a variety of appetizers. It was a great evening to start off our new year with NMC.
Thanks so much to our MNO Committee of Azadeh, Mona, and Jenn! We appreciate all of your hard work keeping us Mamas entertained and well fed! For more information about Mom’s Night Out, feel free to send the ladies an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for our next event in October for our most anticipated DSW event (see last year’s here).
The store was opened for NMC members only, with plenty of things to do and see there. Mini-facials, makeup, and more for our mamas, of which over 30 attended! What a great turnout!
Snacks, wine, and champagne were also provided for our NMC members. Mamas also shopped the store and entered a raffle to receive a gift basket. By the end of the evening, gift bags were given to each member, with sample sizes of useful creams, makeup, and oils.
Thanks to our Moms Night Out committee, Azadeh and Mona! And thanks for re-upping for another year! For more information on MMO, you can email email@example.com. And to see past MNO’s, go here and here.
March’s Mom’s Night Out brought us to Moylan’s Restaurant and Brewery.
Fourteen moms met up on the back patio for some beer, pizza, dessert and some fun discussions. There was also juice for our pregnant mamas, like early birds Azadeh and Jaime (pictured below)!
The Mom’s Night Out committee wanted to thank the new moms that had just joined NMC that past weekend and came out for their first MNO! We’re always so happy to meet new mothers and welcome them into our fantastic group! And really, what way to do that better than pizza and beer?
We had a wonderful time and can’t thank all the moms for coming for a relaxed and chill evening. This was no Bunco Night, that’s for sure! Keep an eye out for April’s Mom’s Night Out for some painting and drinking. See you all in April!
For more information about Moms Night Out, or if you have a great idea for one, please email our excellent committee of Azadeh and Mona at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This past February saw NMC’s first bunco night, and it was a fun one! The ladies enjoyed the night at Hilltop 1892.
We had the bar section reserved, and enjoyed yummy appetizers and wine before the game started. Later on in the night, we get a surprise of yummy cookies, too!
Colleen is nice enough to explain the rules of Bunco to the gathered group. Many of us hadn’t played before! For those of you not in the know, head over here to catch up on the rules. The learning curve is a bit steep, but once you have it, the game is tons of fun!
Finally, the 12 ladies in attendance can begin the game. We have three tables of four going, and there is lots of shouting amidst the dice rolls!
Per the rules, there are usually more than one winner. You can crown an overall winner, the winner of the most Buncos, and the overall loser! Gift cards were awarded to the ladies who got the most of those.
Overall, it was a great night had by all, and we agreed to do it again soon. Hopefully you can join us next time! Many thanks to our Moms Night Out committee, Azadeh and Mona!
The first Moms Night Out of 2015 was a good one: a private trip to Spa de Novato, located on Grant Avenue. The ladies of the Novato Mothers Club arrived around 6:30 pm and were greeted with cheese, fruit, crackers, and plenty of champagne.
The Spa de Novato provided services at a discount for our moms, such as mani/pedis, facials, Reiki Massage, and hair stylings. We had a total of 26 moms who joined us! Most, but not all, got one or more services done along with purchasing some products for a discounted price.
The manicure and pedicures were by far the most popular service, though many ladies did choose to have a facial as well! The Spa de Novato is currently featuring Winter Specials, including Balayage or Ombre hair services, pedicures, Reiki Energy Treatments, as well as a sale on select products.
Another successful night with all our mamas! Thanks to all who attended and a special thanks to the tireless effort of our Moms Night Out Team, Azadeh and Mona! See past MNOs here.
