A MOVEMENT OF MOMS MAKING TIME FOR THEMSELVES
REAL MOMS. REAL TALK. CHAMPAGNE.
Friday, November 30th
32 Vendue Range #100,
Charleston, SC 29401
You’ll be greeted at the door with a glass of bubbly promptly at 6:30pm. Come on time so you’ll have a chance to get settled and meet some new friends before everyone sits.
We’ll gather for the “Honest Conversation” at 6:45pm where Gervase will interview real mama panelists about what it REALLY takes to balance business and motherhood in her signature real coaching style. This month’s conversation will center on a theme: Demystifying the Stay-at-Home Mom, and our work-at-home moms are going to share what the mama journey and the career journey has looked like for them. Maris DeHart will have exclusive specials for The Champagne Society and a gorgeous Christmas tree, photo booth and candy bar! Come in your holiday party best and get ready to #partylikeamother. More mingling, drinking and holiday shopping from 7:45-8:30pm! Exclusive Society afterparty at new hot spot, Bourbon N’ Bubbles, right after!
MEET OUR REAL MAMA PANEL
Leva Bonaparte of Bourbon N Bubbles
Happy, slightly overwhelmed in love new Momma to baby Lamar. Former recovering workaholic. Leva like to create things with her husband- they are real estate developers and restaurateurs!
Savannah Guss of Boho & Bows
Savannah Guss is a native Charlestonian and stay at home mom to 3.5 yr old Coco & 1.5 yr old Benji. After giving birth to her second child, she found herself feeling totally stuck in what she refers to as her “stay at home mom identity crisis.” Determined to finally change the narrative for herself, she created a life & style blog with the intention of encouraging others through fashion, family & faith. Since then, her blog & social media presence has successfully taken off through sharing her real, usually hilarious & encouraging life moments & truths, love for budget friendly fashion finds & work with local Charleston boutiques.
FUN PICS FROM PAST EVENTS
Women in all stages of mothering, from SAHMs to CEOs are invited!
Not a mom?
You’re always welcome, and this WILL be an event and open discussion focused on the behind-the-scenes juggling act of real moms in the community (#thejuggleisreal).
PSA: This will NOT be your traditional “Mom’s Night Out.” You’ve been warned. Dress to impress!
PSA #2: As this is an adult audience, there will likely be some adult language. If this offends you, this may not be the event for you.
This is a movement to ACKNOWLEDGE just how real the juggle is.
This is a movement for real moms who need a break AND a second glass of bubbly.
This movement is to inspire and be inspired.
This is a movement to remind you of the rejuvenating power of FUN.
Remember who you are. Leave better.
You CAN have it all. As long as you believe you deserve it.
MEET OUR SPONSORS:
I’m not a mom. Am I welcome here?
ALL women (sorry, boys!) are welcome at Champagne Society events, whether you are mothers at any stage or not. That being said, the focus of this event WILL be on the unique balancing act mothers experience in all areas of their lives, but the wisdom shared will easily apply to women in all stages of life.
Can I come alone?
The Society is so super friendly, so YES, if you can’t find a wing woman, just bring your fabulous self and walk right up to Gervase or the first mama you see and introduce yourself! It’s such good practice in making yourself super uncomfortable in the name of saying YES to new experiences that you thank yourself for later. Promise.
What should I wear?
This is NOT your typical Moms’ Night Out. Dress to impress. We don’t have enough excuses to get (and feel!) glam in our daily lives, so heels, jewelry, lipstick, dresses, etc are welcome! That being said, whatever you feel comfortable in! If you are a heels, jeans and jewelry kind of gal, that works! It ALL belongs in this society. You can find pictures from our past event on a scrolling bar at the top of this page. I know, I know – it’s SO stressful when someone forces you to MAKE time to go shopping for YOU to find something you feel fabulous in for a super special night out. You can thank us later!
Can I buy tickets at the door?
No. If there are still tickets available, you can buy yours at the link above and THEN run out the door, but every event since October has sold out, so buy your tickets ASAP so you’re not caught on our waiting list kicking yourself! I know . . . it’s hard to commit. I get it. Your call, but you’re going to have massive FOMO. Just sayin’.
Should I eat dinner before I come?
Not a bad idea, particularly considering the bubbly flows like water around these parts! There will be a board of delicious charcuterie and possibly some sweet treats, but you are usually too busy mingling to focus on eating them! There is always an afterparty somewhere announced at the event where everyone can go and order real meals afterwards, too.
Is there an afterparty?
Yes! We like to keep the energy of the night going with a Society afterparty that we coordinate with a nearby restaurant or bar beforehand. We will announce the location in the coming weeks.
Should I drive or Uber?
Uber or carpooling with friends coming from the same area is highly encouraged so you can really enjoy yourself and not worry about logistics! There is a parking lot attached to Woodhouse, as well.
I bought a ticket, but now I can’t make it. Can I get a refund?
Tickets are not refundable, but they are transferrable! Post in the Facebook event and you can sell your ticket directly to another mama, or gift it to a friend. However you choose to transfer your ticket is fine with us! Just have the new ticket-holder give YOUR name at the door and you and your ticket buyer can work out Venmo transfers, etc.
I bought a ticket and received an email confirmation. Do I need to show that at the door?
If you received an email confirmation, rest assured your name will be on the guest list when you arrive and someone from the Unicorn Squad will be checking you in. No need to pull up anything on your phone (personally hate doing that!)!
