Mums of the Shire is a thriving and supportive online community, and our events aim to recreate that same vibrancy and passion in real life. We think it’s really important for our mums to meet regularly and in person, so every few months we try to create opportunities for them to connect with each other and share in the highs and lows of motherhood!
We aim to ensure our mums catch up in a relaxed, casual environment, with some fun entertainment to keep the kids occupied so they can relax. We also create ways for mums to sample interesting and relevant services or products offered by local businesses for free without any hard-sell or pressure. And, most importantly we do our best to make sure we chose a venue with good coffee close to hand!
In the past we’ve held both intimate and large-scale events, at private and public venues, but the key is always to make sure everyone has fun!
Have a look at some of our past events…
Wednesday 9th May 2018
The Bavarian, Miranda
In partnership with Westfield Miranda, this sold-out event, provided the perfect pre-Mother’s Day celebration; a chance to see friends or meet other local mums over morning tea.
Kids were entertained with face painting, story time, balloons and craft, while mums got to enjoy a morning of canapés and a glass of champagne. Stylist-to-the-stars Donny Galella walked our guests through the season’s trends modelled by three lucky local mums who won our ultimate makeover competition.
