Hopefully by now the PLUSH event recaps have captured the excitement and energy that was buzzing throughout the day at the Project Nursery & PetitNest booth. There was never a lull in attendees who wanted to take a peak at everything in our space and learn all they could about Project Nursery. My face was sore from all that talking and smiling, a sign of a successful day. Melisa and I did carve out a little bit of time to walk the floor so that we could meet all the other exhibitors, hear about some of the fantastic giveaway opportunities and report back on new and exciting products.
At StorkSak, we were able to test drive some of their newest diaper bags including the new Sofia bag and the black patent Dori style. Next up we were introduced to Lollacup. It’s an innovative and adorable cup made of BPA and toxic free plastic that has a weighted straw so when your child tips their head back to chug that cranberry juice the straw actually goes to the bottom of the cup so they can successfully get out every last drop. The cups are valve free which makes them a personal favorite because I am so over trying to figure out what attachments go with what cup! We also enjoyed learning about the Bibagogo, a stain resistant, fully washable bib that comes with hidden pockets which contain a spoon and two facecloths. It’s roll and go design make it great for on the go and traveling families.
We were ready for a pick me up so the timing was perfect for a treat at Tasty Clouds. Everyone loves cotton candy right? With over 15 flavors there was something for both tot and parent to sample at this booth. Tasty Clouds is made fresh in LA without additives or preservatives and can be shipped nationwide.
Melisa and I are not shy when it comes to getting the word out about Project Nursery. So when TV host Angela Chee wanted to chat with us about nursery and party trends we jumped at the chance. Angela is the founder of The Zen Mom and was on site to get the scoop for HerSay, a new daily web series for busy women who want to be in the know. We can’t wait to see how the footage turned out and will be sure to share it on PN.
I must also tell you about all the fantastic giveaways that were rockin’ throughout the event. E! Entertainment hosts Catt Sadler and Jason Kennedy were on site as the emcees for the day and got the crowds attention with funny commentary and great prizes. I am a big E! fan and have to admit that many PN posts have been crafted late at night while Catt is updating me on Hollywood gossip.
Three from our very own team generously gave away product and design packages. Design expert Andrika of Nursery Notations gave one lucky mom a design consultation while Annette Tatum raffled off a Brocade crib set. Lonni also gave away a “Design My Nest”, children’s interior design package which is valued at over $1250! And special thanks goes to our friends at Newport Cottages for donating a beautiful Ricki Crib which was front and center complimenting the gorgeous PLUSH sign.
You’ll have to wait one more day before we share our final PLUSH article and feature the lovely ladies of Layla Grayce! They were an exhibit not to be missed but in the mean time, we have a little something special for you….
