Meet Our Members: Cherry Love Couture

Cherry Love Couture was started by two moms on a frantic search to find
matching bows for their little girls. After countless hours of online
searching and going from store to store these mom's decided to take it upon
themselves to solve this problem. After much trial and error Cherry Love
Couture was born. Cherry Love Couture has since branched an now specializes not only in handmade hair bows but, also handmade gifts and home decor!

Summer Festival Recap!

Weren't able to attend the Mom's Time Out Summer Festival this weekend? Or you were there and just want to reminisce? Well, here's a recap of the day:

The sunny morning started off with our 42 vendors setting up in the parking lot surrounding Lucy & Leo's Cupcakery & Textures Handmade Market at 1123 Thomasville Road in midtown Tallahassee.



The event began at 11:00am with shopping, carnival games and treats from some amazing mom-run businesses.


At noon the demonstrations began. First, Brad Fantle from Tallahassee Taekwondo led the children in taekwondo moves. Then Healthy Mama, Healthy Baby showed us some child-friendly yoga and fitness exercises. Finally, Good Friends Group Fitness pumped us up with an energetic workout routine.


Stylist Monet & Marlo from Green Peridot were also there to pamper participants too!

Shoppers enjoyed great food from Cravings, Street Chefs and sno-cones.

TV reporters from both WTXL - ABC 27 & Live in Tallahassee by TMH interviewed vendors and shoppers.


Unfortunately, the rain caused us to end earlier than scheduled, but all in all, a fun and successful day was had by all! See you next time!

*If you have any fun pictures you took while there, please send them to us - momstimeouttlh@gmail.com!
