Top 10 Reasons to Attend Our Welcome to Charleston Newbie Event!


Welcome To Charleston, an event for moms new to the Charleston area, is coming up this Thursday, Nov. 15! Why do you want to join us? We have been busy behind the scenes making sure this event provides you the perfect opportunity to meet other local moms who know the inside scoop on the Holy City, as well as connect with others who are also in your same shoes while enjoying delicious food from our incredible sponsors at Panera Bread, but there is so much more…

10. Learn about local resources for new moms & kids!

Moving to a new city is hard. We want to help you adjust to your new city and discover all the Charleston things- where the best restaurants are (with and without kids), what school to enroll your children in, dentist and doctor recommendations, the perfect photographer for capturing the your family photos, the best playgrounds and so on and so on! We’ve got the inside scoop on it all, from local moms just like you!

9. No sales pitches, just REAL local moms

Having mom friends and connecting with REAL people helps make life easier and more enjoyable, especially in an area you are unfamiliar with. Our team of moms here at Charleston Moms Blog are fun, real moms who love our great city of Charleston. Our writers are volunteers and share a passion for our city and mom life. No product sales pitches here, just real live opportunity to connect.

8. Did someone say FOOD?

Would we invite a bunch of ladies to an event and not provide delicious food? Never! Panera Bread is truly one of our favorites. They care about the simple things: freshly-baked breads, attention to detail, a warm place to gather, and our local neighborhoods. And the food is AMAZING. Fresh and made to order, and the menu offers something everyone in the family can agree upon. That’s why Panera Bread is the perfect place to welcome new moms to the area!

7. Photo ops

It wouldn’t be a Charleston Moms Blog event without our infamous step and repeat banner and fun props! Pose in front of the camera (instead of behind it for once) and celebrate this new season of life along with others who are in your same shoes!

6. Self-Care!

As moms, we do so much for the others in our lives. It’s easy to put kids, family, and everything else before our own needs. Our Welcome to Charleston Newbie Event provides an opportunity JUST FOR YOU. Enjoy a meal without having to share. Try out Panera’s sandwich selections without your toddler swiping it from your hand. Have a conversation that doesn’t get interrupted with, “NO! Don’t lick that!” Don’t get us wrong, we love our kids, but doesn’t a meal and conversation in peace with other women sound like a treat?!

5. You’re among friends!

You’ll be in a room full of other new and seasoned moms. Don’t be shy— the best thing you can leave with is a name, number or future playdate! We hope you use our event to start your “village” or to add a few new members.

4. Small+Intimate Event = Meaningful Time

Let’s face it, the last thing you want to do is fight large crowds and deal with outrageous parking. Our event is designed to be an intimate gathering on purpose. Fewer people means more opportunity for you to interact one-on-one with other guests and truly ENJOY an evening out just for you!

And the best part is because our event is limited to a small number of attendees, there is more opportunity to leave with a giveaway!  Imagine paying $5 for a ticket, and leaving with a giveaway valued at more than $100, along with a swag bag stuffed with products and a delicious meal. We’d call that a pretty good day.

Speaking of giveaways…

3. Giveaways

Everyone loves a winner! What event would be complete without an opportunity to walk away with something big? We’ll have several fun giveaways from some of our favorite local and national brands, including free monthly meals from Panera Bread for a YEAR!

2. The SWAG!!

Each mom will be taking home an adorable swag bag filled with goodies – including both local and national brands such as Kwik Stiks!


Between eating, drinking, and connecting, we hope your number one reason to attend our Welcome to Charleston Newbie Event is your chance to take the evening off and HAVE FUN with other Charleston moms. We’re so excited to meet you all!
