Moms Get Pampered at “The Pretty Party”

15 05 2009


Every Mother’s Day, women are always looking to do something fun and fabulous with their mothers (or daughters). The usual options are brunch, high tea, shopping, etc. This past Mother’s Day though, thirty Houston moms gathered to enjoy a special afternoon of pampering and beauty at The Pretty Party: Mother’s Day Edition. The event was the brainchild of Alexia Johnson (Life’s Petals Event Planning) and Summer Galvez (Socially Privileged Entertainment), two ladies who obviously know a thing or two about creating a spectacular experience. 

At the event, the ladies were treated to professional makeup applications, a professional photographer, wine, and appetizers. And, while the day was special for all the mothers involved, it had a special meaning to four VERY deserving mothers in the area. Thanks to two generous NFL players, three foster moms and a mother currently battling Lupus were treated to a full day of pampering and primping. They enjoyed brunch, shopping, manis and pedis, and before concluding the day at the Pretty Party!

Jammal Brown (New Orleans Saints) sponsored two of the moms, and made a special trip to Houston to meet them and take pics with the ladies. The other player chose to remain anonymous but no doubt had just as much impact of his 2 moms.

I’m a complete sucker for feel good stories like this one! When I first found Summer on Twitter discussing her event, I was ALLLLL about it! She’s planning to keep the Pretty Parties going and bring them to Dallas, LA, Oklahoma City, and (wait for it) CHICAGO!!!
