Bloom Event Recap 2023


Miami Mom Collective hosted our 5th annual Bloom event on May 11, 2023! This year’s Bloom Event was presented by our partner Baptist Health South Florida!

The Miami Mom Collective Bloom Event is a celebration of motherhood with a goal to encourage, equip, and empower local moms.

At Bloom, moms gather together to learn about local and national brands that provide support for their families. Moms were also treated to various relaxation experiences and exciting activation.

The Bloom Event Venue: The Doral Yard

The Doral Yard was the perfect outdoor setting for Bloom 2023! In 2022, we loved the venue so much that we used it again this year! It is a 20,000 square foot “community gathering space designed to foster local entrepreneurship and culture.” With tropical murals surrounding the space, fresh greenery everywhere and planes flying overhead, The Backyard at The Doral Yard felt quintessential Miami!

Guests were greeted with a welcome drink from The Doral Yard.

Bites were provided by Yip!

Santos Dulce also provided moms with a complimentary churro and ice cream!
