Party Pics From Mother’s 2nd Anniversary Bash

Written by Katie Hintz-Zambrano


As of this past weekend, Mother has officially been “live” for two years. To celebrate our entrance into internet toddlerhood, we invited 100 of our favorite Bay Area ladies (and a few gents) to a whiskey-fueled brunch, co-hosted by Women & Whiskies and held in a beautiful, light-soaked space provided by Splacer.

Just like raising a child (or running a site), it really does take a village. In the case of our second anniversary party, we couldn’t have pulled the shindig together without the help of over 35 partners who helped make the event shine.

A delicious and beautiful savory spread was provided by Seed + Salt and Kite Hill cheese, Nola cold-brew coffee by Blue Bottle, juice by Can Can Cleanse, and an impressive dessert spread by Miss Jones Baking Co. and San Francisco classic It’s-It Ice Cream.

Our settings were made even more stunning with glassware by Chairs + Cups, plates, napkins, and utensils by Harlow & Grey, florals by Laura Seymour of The Wild Ones, and a modern play structure by iA Playhouse.

And, of course…100 personalized gift bags, filled with goodies, including organic Coyuchi baby blankets, Tea Collection PJs, Freshly Picked moccasins, Doughbies cookies, Sonoma Syrup Co. simple syrups, Chronicle Books journals, Everlane tees, Seedling activity kits, Munchkin snack and sippy cups, Annie’s treats, Blabla finger puppets, First Aid Beauty booty, Rifle Paper Co. cards, Harlow & Grey napkins, Oak & Ashland hand-crafted organic face masks, gift cards from Noble Carriage and Freda Salvador, and promo cards by Toca Boca, The Podolls, Kamperett, Metier, Superga, Box Fox, and more.

Thank you to everyone who helped and every single Mother reader over the past two years! We can’t wait to show you what else we have in store…
