Victoria Wise, founder of Tanglewood Moms blog, (the original gal who started the Tanglewood Moms Facebook page), and I are joining forces for the ULTIMATE Mommy Mixer. This will be the first of several FREE and FABULOUS season/holiday themed events for you and your littles, and will surely become a regular on your social calendar!
For this inaugural event, we teamed up with Central Market for the perfect afternoon of fun and entertainment. Come join us straight from carpool to enjoy cookie decorating for the kiddos.
Fall harvest topiary inspirations with Into the Garden urns and a food truck curated with the perfect snack and cocktail menu will be set up just for this affair. Think snacks at Central Market instead of in your car at pick up, so it doesn't end up looking like this.
Doesn’t grabbing an afternoon glass or two of wine with girlfriends for a playdate sound divine? Purchase a cheese board or a Mediterranean spread of nibbles, plop down for some serious girl time with a playground for a babysitter.
All the while contemplating how fabulous your porch will look when you get home with dinner. Your husband will be so thrilled with food ready in hand, he won't even care that you just bought all the pumpkins at Central Market for your front porch to be the best on the block!
Victoria and I have been hard at work for three weeks planning this not-to-be-missed event. We can’t help but laugh at this “faux” shoot we did last week. We were having so much fun we forgot to put the greenery on the bottom of he first starter pumpkin. Clearly the early morning drinking got to our heads! But we did get the look right, after getting the hang of it!
I can promise you fantastic examples of perfect topiaries like the ones below on Wednesday.
Canned Food Drive & Topiary GIVEAWAY!!!
What's a Mommy Mixer without showing our kids the joys of giving from the heart? This Wednesday, our goal is for every family to bring at least five cans of food. This number could potential be over 500 food items. But wait, there's more!! For every five cans, you will earn an extra ticket into the drawing for the topiary. YES! Central Market and Into the Garden have graciously donated an urn and a stack of pumpkins for one lucky winner. You don't need to be present to win, but you MUST attend to enter the contest. (If you forget to bring cans, you can always purchase in the store for your convenience.)
Swag bags for the first 100 Moms!!!
Thanks to our very generous sponsors for this event, the first 100 moms will enjoy a fabulous swag bag filled to the brim with discounts and freebies to be enjoyed and redeemed from Fort Worth’s most exclusive retail and dining spots. Victoria and I have personal relationships with these businesses and hope that you will support them in the near future. We highly recommend them!

And THANK YOU Bree Linne for photographing the Central Market shoot!
Need A Double Dose of SoFortWorthIt Events This Week?
I'm hosting one of my infamous Young Living Essential Oil parties (TOMORROW) Tuesday, Sept. 29 in my home with Veuve Cliquot Champagne and cocktails flowing. These events will be professionally photographed for an upcoming SoFortWorthIt blog, just incase you want a chance to be in a future post. I always give away TONS of free stuff and you will definitely leave feeling on fire with excitement! Contact me for more details about location.
As an essential oil user since 2012, a healthy/holistic lifestyle awareness drove me to research oils for improving my optimal health. Young Living is the essence of what I acquired, researched, and learned while seeking answers to wellness naturally for me and my family. I strongly believe in Young Living and seek new opportunities for lifelong transformations for me, my family and you.
