Event Review: California Baby Family Festival

On Sunday, October 10th, California Baby opened it's doors to the public for their first ever Family Festival. It was a beautiful day in Los Angeles filled with fun for all ages!

The full line of California Baby products was on display, including Aromatherapy Spritzers (on ice) which really came in handy and this warm and sunny day.

VIP guests got a peek behind the scenes on a tour of the California Baby factory led by founder, Jessica Iclisoy. Fun Fact: Product is transferred from mixing vats to bottling via stainless steel piping (rather than PVC or plastic) to maintain its purity.

Guests were treated to a fun chemistry lesson with Dennis, the California Baby Science Guy where he explained the role of emulsifiers in mixing oil and water.

Also on the tour, VIPs got to mix essential oils to create their very own aromatherapy blend and lotion.

Outside, C.O.R.E. Personal Trainer, Carla Zeitlin, got things moving and shaking with fitness demonstration. Carla's workouts include "Mommy and Me" and "Soon to Be Mommy" sessions.

One of the many yummy treats being served were ice cream sandwiches made with Coconut Bliss organic ice cream.

Let's Be Frank grilled up some delicious grass-fed beef, turkey, and veggie hot dogs (all nitrate, nitrite, and hormone free). I'm not a big hot dog fan, but these were so good I had seconds.

Chef Gino, host of KitchenDaily’s Kitchen Kids, taught guests how to make tortellini at his booth with ingredients provided by Whole Foods.

Mother Cluck brought along some feathered friends that guests enjoyed interacting with.

Ladybug Music got the party started with some groovy tunes and interactive play.

At the Garden School Foundation, California Baby's partner in charity, kids were able to pot their own broccoli and lettuce seedlings to take home with them.

Bash Eco Events, a "sustainably minded, boutique, event coordination studio," provided dried gourds and pumpkins for decorating with jewels, ribbons, and more.

The creativity continued to flow at the Kimmel Kids booth where stencils and vibrant colors were the tools for imaginative masterpieces. Kimmel Kids products are available at select retailers. See website for locations.

All in all the California Baby Family Festival was a delightful and enriching experience for all in attendance. I look forward to many more!
