Oh, what a night! We had so much fun at Alamo City Moms Blog’s First Birthday Bash and appreciate everyone who participated.
Our co-title sponsors, BASIS San Antonio and BASIS San Antonio North, were there to greet our moms as they walked in the door. BASIS San Antonio and BASIS San Antonio North are tuition-free, internationally ranked charter schools serving grades 5-9, and are expanding to 5-12 over the next four years. BASIS offers a comprehensive, deep liberal arts curriculum including accelerated math and science instruction, robust humanities courses and diverse fine arts offerings. These schools also include a comprehensive extra-curricular program with sports and academic competitions.
Our guests entered the San Antonio Children’s Museum, our partner and host for the evening. What a fabulous venue for our celebration! Attendees were also able to learn about the upcoming Construction Completion Bash at for SACM’s new location opening in summer 2015, The Do Seum!
Our event sponsors were on hand to greet our guests and we were thrilled to welcome San Antonio’s 3D/4D ultrasound studio UltraInsight, our favorite babysitting service in San Antonio Time Out Sitters, as well as Great Hearts Monte Vista, The Bra Chick, Christina Welch with Stella & Dot, Ahni & Zoe, Treehouse Music Together, From Scratch Farm and Fit4Mom.
We were blown away by the amazing food offered and thank Liberty Bar, Uncommon Fare and Tim the Girl Catering for the savory morsels they provided. The sugar was flowing and we were loving the desserts offered by Annie’s Petite Treats, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Kate’s Frosting, and Sobro Pizza Co. If you haven’t experienced Frost 321 and their liquid nitrogen creations, they are a must. We spiked their fabulous treats with Rebecca Creek Whiskey and Enchanted Rock Peach Vodka. The Lemonade Company and Fave Juice kept our thirst quenched and almost everyone enjoyed the Wine Bar by yours truly, Alamo City Moms Blog.
Our night wouldn’t have been complete without the entertainment by Studio Benton Photography and its fun photo booth, face painting by Painting Outside the Box, our mini-spa and massage room by Elements Therapeutic Massage, music to keep the night going by Treehouse Music Together and henna body art by the talented Krystalklear Henna. Our VIPs were treated to a make up bar by Mitzi Sandell with Mary Kay and a style bar by Smooth Lines Salon.
A huge thank you to our transportation partner Ûber, who ensured our moms arrived to the event and home safely and to the talented Christine Naomi Photography who captured the evening beautifully with her pictures. Our generous attendees outdid themselves with donations for St. PJ’s Children’s Home. And we loved the chalkboard art from Monarchadian Studios (210-854-7990).
