As mommy's we always want to give our babies the best, especially when it comes to what we feed them. We strive for healthy, clean ingredients and delicious flavors; like Beech-Nut® Naturals™. I've partnered up with Beech-Nut® Naturals™ to host a MommyParty to spread awareness of their baby food purées!
This was the perfect opportunity to get together with a few of my mommy family and friends and just chit chat and have a much needed mommy to mommy time. Best of all it was a great play date for our babies, along with some yummy Beech-Nut® Naturals™ purées for them to enjoy.
If you aren't familiar with Beech-Nut® Naturals™ this is a line of baby food purées inspired by homemade. Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is a small company in upstate New York of 300 passionate employees who truly care about what we feed our babies! They took that extra step to sit down with moms and dads in their home kitchen to learn about how they fed their little ones. They really listened to the parents' feedback; which was that they wanted simple, natural ingredients, and no artificial ingredients. Beech-Nut® Naturals™ purées are inspired by homemade. When you are feeding your little ones, know that Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is "real food for babies"™
They have an assortment of flavors available at your local groceries. Find them in the baby aisle look for the distinctive "honeypot" jar with the green cap. Beech-Nut® Naturals™ was kind enough to send over three flavors for my MommyParty to sample. Which included just apples, just carrots, corn, and pumpkin, and just pineapple, pear, and avocado. Both mommies and babies agreed that they were delicious! We loved the fact that they used 100% natural, nothing artificial, and only ingredients you can pronounce.
Since my MommyParty was at noon, I decided to make the menu fall brunch. It consisted of pumpkin pie waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage patties, fresh fruit, parfait, cookies, and smoothies. I used Beech-Nut® Naturals™ to create the pumpkin pie waffles, cookies, yogurt peach swirl, and smoothies! My mommies were blown away at the fact that I used the baby purées for some of the recipes! They saw how creative you can get using Beech-Nut® Naturals™ it's not just baby food it's for all ages!

Talking about getting creative, we had a little craft project now that we had empty jars. Since Halloween is around the corner we made witches and mummies! (since it was a MommyParty)
My daughter spotted these cute pumpkin kits at the discount store and I thought hey these would be cool for our craft project! We did have to modify them a bit since they were intended for 5" Pumpkins.
They turned out so cute and the kids absolutely loved them! This was the perfect little Halloween/MommyParty favor. With a little imagination you can customize your Beech-Nut® Naturals™ jar!
I had also, made a few center pieces decorations using Beech-Nut® Naturals™ jars. Which were lace candle holders, with dried leaves and twigs, perfect for fall decor. The possibilities are endless; you can paint them, use them as juice cups by inserting a straw, store small things, or as party favors. It's always fun to get creative, think outside the box, recycle and re-use.
Another fun activity I had planned out; Beech-Nut® Naturals™ BINGO. Which I totally forgot with the brunch, craft, and photo booth. I'll definitely play with my little ones next time.
I'm a fan of photo booths, so of course I had a Beech-Nut® Naturals™ photo booth for fun photos! We really wanted to share with everyone what Beech-Nut® Naturals™is all about. You know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!
Everyone had a blast taking pictures with their Beech-Nut® Naturals™ props.
The babies had so much fun that they literally wanted to eat their props, thinking it was the real deal!
Now that each mommy was introduced to Beech-Nut® Naturals™ they left with more knowledge of the brand and their mission. They also left with a swag bag which included Beech-Nut® Naturals™ purée jars, koozies to hold the jars for feeding, spoons, and sticky “baby handprint” cookies along with a recipe card. It was a great time for my mommies as we discussed all about feeding and motherhood. It helped them to get creative in the kitchen. Best of all, it gave them piece of mind that Beech-Nut® Naturals™ is "real food for babies"™
