The florals were in full bloom, the tea was flowing, and the moms were smiling and fulfilled! Our hearts are so grateful to every mom, friend, business, and sponsor who were a part of this Flourish event experience.
Our sponsors and vendors shared their expertise with over 100 moms at Flourish. It was a packed venue at the London Tea Room in their stunning new location. Flourish was presented by Mercy in partnership with Legacy Physical Therapy, InVita Health and Wellness, STL Fertility, Esse Health Pediatrics, Amanda Brandt, Realtor, and Ptera Jewelry.
Moms from all over St. Louis joined us for refreshments, pampering, shopping, presentations, and meaningful connection with each other! Each room was buzzing with excitement, laughter, and a sense of calm.
This event is unlike any other, and so is the swag! Almost 40 businesses contributed something special just for Flourish. Our St. Louis community continues to amaze us with their support for this motherhood journey!
Let us extend a special thanks to Dr. Garland, Dr. Schulte, Dr. Dayal, Brooke Kalisiak, Sara Franco, and Dr. Putnam for participating as our event presenters! They covered vital and valuable topics relating to moms, mental health, physical health, and children’s health all while sharing their journey with us.
At Flourish, we wanted to have something unique for each mom: Esse Health Pediatrics hosted our Infant Wellness Corner for breastfeeding moms. Disco! hosted a Gratitude Corner where moms at our event could anonymously write words of encouragement in blank greeting cards for us to donate to a local organization.
Sophia’s Crowns Flower Shop hosted a flower crown station. The Mocktail Lounge offered our moms a special selection of crafted mocktails. We had custom cookies lovingly baked and decorated by Lemon House Bakes. There were gorgeous chocolate-covered treats artistically made by Glamour Berries. The London Tea Room provided sweets and tea, of course. Michele C Catering did a full spread of appetizers! There was plenty to go around.
The fun continued with a custom selfie backdrop, designed and built by Trendy Occasions. Fête Booth hosted the most fun photo booth! Our moms were pampered with brow tinting by House of Wax, vitamin injections compliments of InVita Health and Wellness, a mini manicure accent nail from PAINT St. Louis, and hair styling by Studio D Luxe.
Our goal is always to connect moms — whether that is with each other, with local businesses and vice versa. It was impossible not to feel and witness those connections flourishing at the London Tea Room on the last Sunday of April. We hope that you left with full hearts, new friends, and new businesses to support. If you didn’t get a chance to attend, St. Louis Mom is always hosting pop-up events for you to mingle and connect. We hope to see you, in person, soon!
