Hollywood leading ladies Jenna Elfman, Kelly Preston and Laila Ali came together over the weekend to celebrate moms and moms-to-be, and educate them about raising healthy babies. The first ever celebrity breastfeeding and toxin-free living event was held at Jenna Elfman’s home in Los Angeles to raise awareness for the not-for-profit organizations Best for Babes and Healthy Child Healthy World. The event was sponsored by Leading Lady nursing intimates and Ameda breastpump company and coordinated by The Party Goddess! We were SO absolutely ecstatic to be a part of this magical day!
“The Party Goddess!” pulled together the eco-friendly yet elegant “Afternoon Tea” in Jenna’s beautiful poolside garden. The atmosphere was modern and chic with very clean lines. The table décor utilized natural linens with apple green and cream colored floral arrangements, to tie in with the organic theme of the event itself. Wildflower donated the linens and Bed of Roses provide the flowers for the event. The Party Goddess! team pulled together incredible Swag Bags full of donations from the generous sponsors, so heavy that guests had to have help carrying them to their car at the end of the party.
Elfman kicked off the gathering by describing how she attended a Healthy Child Party when she was pregnant with her first child and became aware of the importance of creating a non-toxic home. She then shared her own inspiring breastfeeding story, from the struggle to breastfeed her first son, to her ability to donate her milk to a methamphetamine-addicted baby.
Preston then spoke about her passion for Healthy Child Healthy World, which helps families across the world teach their children about toxin-free living, before confessing to being late because she was nursing her 16-month-old son with enough milk to “feed a small country.”
Ali confessed that although she was normally a very private person, when it came to breastfeeding, she didn’t care what anyone thought—if her baby was hungry she was going to nurse—and emphasized her feeling that a parents’ responsibility is to create a non-toxic environment for their children.
Guests, including a glowing Vanessa Lachey, checked out lacy, stylish nursing bras by Leading Lady, learned about Ameda’s patented germ-free pump technology, browsed toxin-free products for their homes and children from eco-friendly brands, noshed on fare from Chef Ludo Lefevbre, and left with incredible Swag Bags full of donations from the generous sponsors, so heavy that guests had to have help carrying them to their car.
The event was presented by sponsors Leading Lady and Ameda, with support from leading sponsors Moby Wrap, Motherlove, Cariboo, Seventh Generation, PumpEase, Fairhaven Health, Mamas and Papas, and Happy Family.
