Lifestyle and Working Mom Magazineâ€™s â€œMotherâ€™s Day Picnic” was a tremendous success in once again bringing joy and wonderful memories to families that attended the fun-filled picnic-themed event last May 15 at the UP Sunken Garden in celebration of Mother’s Day.
First of the many treats started when the first 150 moms who registered online via the Lifestyle’s Facebook page received a special picnic basket filled with exciting treats and giveaways courtesy of Rebisco snack, Leslie and Farmerâ€™s Potato, Sanicare sanitary set and Cheers set, Mottâ€™s apple juice, Lotus Biscoff, Hunts, Absolute, Vitamilk, Clearascar, Toblerone, Insular, Arla, Goldilocks, and Nido. Additional 50 picnic baskets were given to the early birds who attended the event. Additional baskets were also raffled off during the event to lucky mothers.
Much to the delight of the fans who have been anticipating to meet and greet the mother and daughter tandem Kathryn Bernardo and Mommy Min, the first 50 lucky guests who trooped to the event and bought their copies of Working Mom Magazineâ€™s May issue served as a free pass to the much-awaited segment. Working Mom’s Motherâ€™s Day Special is headlined by Mommy Min Bernardo and daughter, teen queen Kathryn Bernardo. In this issue, Mommy Min shares her joys and sacrifices in raising her successful children Chrysler, Kaye (who joins Mommy Min and Kathryn in the inside pages, along with Kaye’s daughter, Lexine), and Kevin.
Hosted by actress and TV host Dimples Romana, the event featured six zones perfect for the whole family to enjoy:Â Family ZoneÂ which included booths for family picnic activities and games such as face paint and Giant Jenga, a pet buffet and grooming from Dogs and the City, and a family photo booth courtesy of Nido;Â Mommy ZoneÂ which included booths for Nails by Girlstuff, hairstyling by Goody, eye brow makeovers from K Palette, ABS-CBN Store, O-Shopping, and Sky Cable;Â Kids ZoneÂ which included booths from Lego, Keywest International, Chicco, Fisher Price, and Craft Party Manila;Â Food ZoneÂ which included booths for Spud Buds, Baga Manila merchants, Truck Bun, Sugartrails, and Mang Larryâ€™s Ihawan;Â Working Mom Arts and Crafts ZoneÂ with activities courtesy of Craft Party Manila, art and crafts materials from Crayola, a bento box making activity from Glad, and toddlerâ€™s play area from Megabloks; and lastly theÂ Sponsors ZoneÂ which included Â activity booths for Arla, ATC, Bio Oil, Ever Bilena, Petron, and for the UP Student Council.
Later that day, Lifestyleâ€™s newest local shows “Modern Girls” and the new season of â€œA Pinch of Portiaâ€ were launched. â€œModern Girlsâ€ hosts Gretchen Ho, Sam Oh, and Denise Laurel joined in the festivities and played fun games with the crowd.Â
Completing the ultimate Mother’s Day experience was Lifestyle’s very own Portia who conducted a cooking demo featuring Arla Cheesy Spread. Guests were also treated with samples of the Presto Cream Coldcuts Sandwich.
The afternoon of family bonding was capped with a special serenade for moms rendered by ASAP Sessionista Richard Poon. Roses courtesy of Island Rose were also given out to mothers who are present during the event.
