What an adventure, thanks to 1-800-Flowers.com!

`

I recently had a wonderful opportunity to join other mom bloggers and some very important people for the “Spot A Mom movement.” The movement was created by 1-800-Flowers.com to honor all the moms in our lives. From our grandmothers, our moms, our aunts, to our sisters, our friends and beyond.

The event was held in the penthouse at the Buckingham Hotel on 57th St. where the world-renowned Opera Singer Giovanni Martinelli once lived.

First of all, the hotel is absolutely beautiful. The entrance is unique and very inviting. The Penthouse entrance is also very nice but nothing compares to the terrace. It’s just amazing.

The views were breathtaking.  You really have to experience it for yourself to get the full effect of the views and the great feelings you get when you’re out there.

As I was being escorted by the great staff of MWW Group, I noticed all of the beautiful arrangements of flowers and roses.  I also noticed the wonderful aroma in the air.  No words can express the smells that permeated the room.

Julie Mulligan, 1-800-Flowers.com’s very own Floral Lifestyle Expert was responsible for the spectacular bouquets and wonderful array of flowers and themes such as the On the Go Mom, Red Carpet Mom, DIY Mom and many more.  She’s not only talented and unique but she’s a very dedicated and a very sweet person as well.

Jim McCann, the founder and CEO of 1-800-Flowers.com gave us a great speech about how he wants every mom to be accounted for.  So his mission for this Mother’s Day is to make sure no mom is left behind.

If you ask me, I think that’s one of the best things I’ve heard so far this year!

When I met Jim McCann, I instantly felt the passion and his admiration for this very special day. With his beautiful family and his new granddaughter by his side, you can see why he is so dedicated to Mother’s Day.

Along with Jim McCann, Julie Mulligan, all the staff from 1-800-Flowers.com, Allison Blass and the rest of the staff at MWW Group, I’ve met some amazing women and fellow bloggers.  I’ve had the privilege to meet Carol from NYCitymama, Victoria from VeepVeep, Nikki from Blasian Baby Notes, Nichelle from StyleMom, Dina from BabyCenter and Katja from Skimbaco Lifestyle.

I’ve had the honor to meet many other great people but since I still suffer from “Baby Brain” (all moms go thru this, right? lol!), I simply forgot their names.  So if you don’t see your name here, please don’t think I forgot about you, it’s just that I have a very bad memory when it comes to names.  It was a pleasure meeting all of you!

This day was especially nice because I had the opportunity to bring my kids. They had a wonderful time and were kept busy with activities, flowers, food and some tv.  They also had someone very special taking very good care of them. Her name is Meaghan O’Hare from 1-800-Flowers.com.  Thank you so much! They loved you and they even made some new friends!

`

`

Thank you 1-800-Flowers.com for providing us with a fabulous goodie bag too.  I was not expecting that at all.  The invitation to the event was more than enough for me so the bag was a very nice added bonus.

It was filled with all sorts of great stuff.  A nice bag from Celebrations, some great tasting Cheryl & Co. cookies, a gift certificate to 1-800-Flowers.com (which I can’t wait to use), a cute portable hard drive and some wonderful chocolate truffles by Fannie May.

We also received great t-shirts to show off that we were spotted for Mother’s Day.  I can’t wait to wear my t-shirt with pride!  I think I’m more of an “On the Go Mom”.

How about you? What type of mom are you?

Last but not least, I would like to thank you all for making this day I will never forget.  My kids and I had the best time!
