Earlier this month, I had the sincere pleasure of hosting two brands I love for a buzzy evening of cocktails, girlfriends, shopping, and celebrating. It was such a fun night! The occasion? A chance to raise a glass to the women behind Neely & Chloe and Dondolo and the beautiful collection they launched in collaboration with one another. My cocktail party with Neely & Chloe and Dondolo ended up taking place 4 days before I gave birth to Henry, which I honestly very much loved. I might sound like a lunatic but I recommend having a party right before giving birth.
It was a wonderful opportunity to see so many friends before my life quieted down with a newborn. I felt so much love from the party full of incredible women, many of whom are mothers themselves. The collection by Neely & Chloe and Dondolo couldn’t have been a more fitting one for me to celebrate because it is a line of staples like day-to-night purses but also items for the modern mom on the go. The diaper carry all, the changing pad, and the pouches are as practical as they are beautiful. I can’t recommend them enough!
My Cocktail Party with Neely & Chloe and Dondolo
Neely & Chloe products are designed with such attention to detail and to the highest quality while the prints Dondolo brought to life on the products are absolutely exquisite and ideal for either a boy or girl mom. If you are a mom-to-be, a mom looking for a fresh take on your everyday mothering items, or looking to gift a mama you know, then I know you will adore this collection! With Mother’s Day around the corner, I can’t think of a better gift! I’ve highlighted the collection below as well as some other favorite items from Dondolo, including the sweet little smocked dress I wore to my cocktail party with Neely & Chloe and Dondolo.
I hosted about 25 women at my house for my cocktail party with Neely & Chloe and Dondolo.
It was a wonderful group to gather to celebrate the brands as many of the women are already huge supporters of the two female-founded businesses. The whole gaggle of women are all lovers of the brands now because it is always such a treat to get to know a business in an intimate setting by getting to touch and feel the products and getting to know the founders and women behind the scenes. The party was seamless because we tapped The Drifter to cater and do the florals for the event. They make life so delicious and easy! I had so much fun coordinating with the Neely & Chloe and Dondolo teams so the planning process was both a breeze and a blast.
Moms quite literally do it all so I think we should never feel like we have to sacrifice on style for function, especially when we’re on the go and heading out our door to brace the world with our littles in tow. That is why I LOVE the collection that Neely & Chloe and Dondolo brought to life! The products make mom life easier and prettier! The products are all extremely practical too – cleanable, wipe-able, and powerwash-able with coated canvas exteriors that hold up despite the toll that mom life takes on items. Products like the changing pad have plasticized interiors so they are ready for any and all messes. Seamless and beautiful!
