As many of you know, October tends to hit close to home. In addition to it being Halloween, one of my favorite holidays, it’s also Breast Cancer and Liver Cancer Awareness Month. Having been inspired by my mom’s battle against breast cancer to open up my boutique, M of Hope, I am always seeking unique ways to help spread the word as to what exactly “awareness” means in each awareness month. You’ll see exactly what I mean by this in posts to come, so stay tuned.
In addition to finding unique and fun ways to spread the word about knowing when to perform your monthly breast exams, where to perform them and knowing what the signs and symptoms are of breast cancer, I always seek a unique way to celebrate with my mom; to remind her of how far she has come, what a fighter she is and how inspiring she is.
Allow me to introduce you to this oh-so fun company called Packed Party. They are exactly as their name states: a party packed in a box that is delivered directly to your door! They have different themes to choose from and cover all holidays and milestones in your life. When I found “The Fighter,” I knew it would be the perfect way to celebrate this Breast Cancer Awareness Month with my mom, and a way to commemorate her fight.
I was so excited to gift this Packed Party with her that in true Meaghan form, I almost gave away the big hint and told her about it before it arrived. Thankfully, I was able to keep it a surprise. Take a peek at her opening up all of the treats inside of “The Fighter.”
So what exactly is inside of “The Fighter?” A delicious custom milk-chocolate bar wrapped in the cutest packaging, super soft socks (just in time for cooler temperatures and boot season), a beautiful tissue box, an ‘Emergency Clown Nose” that comes in handy for when you need a good laugh, a beautiful lipstick and a custom note.
My personal favorites are the socks and the clown nose- too cute! They really thought of everything in this Packed Party. And naturally I enjoyed seeing my mom smiling while opening this treat. Above all, I am over the moon to see her so healthy- three years down… so many to go!
Have you ever received or shopped with Packed Party before? Share your parties with me- I’d love to see photos! And brace yourself: the darling Disco Drink Tumbler? It’s arriving to M of Hope in a few short weeks! Better yet? It’s arriving in GOLD! I’m so excited for that. It’s sure to be the cutest stocking stuffer of 2016. You guys, I know… Halloween hasn’t arrived just yet and I’m talking the holiday season. Retail mentality…
How did you celebrate a special cancer anniversary or milestone with your loved one? I’d love to hear!
P.S. I know it’s been FOREVER since my last post. I am dedicating time to catch you up on everything. It’s been a rollercoaster of absolute amazingness and I can’t wait to share what I’ve been up to. I hope you’re excited to see! xoxo – M
