Plano Moms Plant and Sip

The Plant and Sip family has a love for all things nature. Their plants are bought from a family farm ensuring they get the very best quality while supporting fellow plant enthusiasts. Their love for nature doesn’t stop with plants. To be part of the Plant and Sip team, you have to have a love for animals and be willing to donate some of your time to local shelters and rescue groups. Three times a year, Plant and Sip holds fundraisers for their little friends where 100% of the proceeds go to local animal shelters.

Sooooo, to sum it up, come with friends to drink, eat, laugh, and create something cool!.. !

They will be giving away massages, one month of free coworking and other awesome door prizes our in-house massage therapist and we will have a In House Massage Therapist also giving away for door prizes. This is not to be missed!

Our Mommy Mixer

Have you ever been to a Mommy Mixer?

We have now had two events this year so far. It’s long awaited for many of our moms who were looking for their new BFF!

Our Plano Moms team know that you have moved to Plano, TX from someplace else or simply found it hard to meet new friends and this event was perfect for meeting that need.

Our Plano Moms Mommy Mixer team included Lauren, Jaime and Susan who were there to run the event on April 29th and August 5th at Celebrity Café & Bakery.

Susan said “The Mommy Mixer went AMAZING!  It really was a great event and the ladies loved it”

Upon arrival, our moms got Name-tags and stickers with their name/email address. Ideal for swapping with new friends, they were very popular!

All the moms had free chances to win fabulous door prizes from some of our own Mompreneurs offering gift certificates for all types of products and services – from Hair & Make Up, Personal Training, Custom gifts, Clothing and much more!

Speed Mommy Dating needs to be planned, right? We matched our moms based on nearby locations and age of kids for maximum success.

Our timings meant that each pair of moms had a chance to chat and move around with some question ideas for inspiration.

Lots of stickers were swapped & many have become Facebook friends and already arranged meet-ups!

Celebrity Café & Bakery ensured that our ladies were fueled with a great buffet and soft drinks. Many of our moms brought their own wine and beer and shared among each other

“This really was so much fun! I definitely enjoyed myself and I can’t even begin to tell you how thankful I am for this event. Having moved here last summer I just haven’t really had the chance to meet very many people and with this event I was able to connect with moms I may have never met. I feel like I have the beginnings for some really great friendships all because of this event. I truly am very grateful to everyone that helped to organize and run this. Thank you so much for creating such a fun way to make new friends” – Sydney, a Plano Mom.

Who wants another one? Our first Mommy Mixer was a success and we are busy planning our next one!
