Who is Bloom for?

Last year’s Bloom was so much fun! Look at those swag bags y’all!

This event is geared towards moms who are currently expecting a baby, had a baby within the last year or so, foster moms of infants, or women who are planning on growing their family soon. Whether it’s your first child or 5th, Bloom is for YOU! Also welcome are spouses, significant others, aunts, friends… anyone you’d like to bring with you! (This is event is especially helpful for caregivers and grandparents, since much of the baby advice has changed over the years!) *nurslings permitted if in a stroller or carrier

Where is Bloom?

This year it will be at the Memphis Botanic Garden. This event is indoor/outdoors, where some of our vendors and activities are outside on the beautiful lighted patio, while the rest of the event is easily accessed in the grand ballroom. The Botanic Garden is wheelchair and stroller friendly!

This year we are thrilled to be offering our guests:

+ NEW this year:

  • Custom Coffee Bar, sponsored by Killer Coffee
  • Baby shower games (Oh yeah, get excited! Plus there are some good prizes for the winners!)
  • Roundtable discussions! Instead of a keynote speaker, we want YOU to engage with our experts. There will be 8 table topics. Pick your top 4 and every 15 minutes you’ll switch to a new table. There, you and other guests will pick the brains of the “table host/expert” and ask them all the burning questions you might have! The roundtable discussion will take place from 6:30-7:30pm.
