It was a wonderful evening in Downtown Opelika at the railyard beside John Emerald Distillery when mamas from all over our area joined us to celebrate our first birthday with a Mom’s Night Out. The railyard was cozy with heaters and string lights while we all enjoyed local food, activities, vendor tables, and tons of giveaways.

None of this would have been possible without our wonderful sponsors! We encourage each of you to check out these local and national brands that we LOVE. 

The Space

The Downtown Opelika railyard was a beautiful backdrop to our event. Exposed brick, sounds of the train, and walking distance to all of our favorite downtown Opelika businesses, made the railyard the perfect space for our Mom’s Night Out. This location can be rented through our venue sponsor, Cottonseed Studios and we highly recommend the railyard for your next event. 

Food & Beverages

We had tons of fabulous food from local vendors. Bites were enjoyed by, La Cantina, Barberitos, Wilton’s Catering, Good Karma, Fratellis, and Gigi’s Cupcakes. Guests also enjoyed sips from John Emerald Distillery, Mama Mochas, and Milo’s Tea Company.


The eye-popping balloon designs and table decor around the venue was provided by an AOMB contributor and local mama, Calley Brady. We are grateful to her and our event team for all of their hard work that made the venue shine.

Swag & Giveaways

Who doesn’t love free goodies? We are passionate about introducing our mamas to new products and brands. In addition to the items offered at each activity booths, attendees walked away with a swag bag full of items from: Toland Realty, Prestige Flooring, Honey Pixel Designs , Auburn Pharmacy, Bare Republic, Alumni Hall-Auburn, Better Bodies Massage, GoSili, AR Workshop, APR, Auburn Oil Company, Club Pilates, Know the Community, Perspective Counseling, Pure Barre, and Tiny Closet.

Entertainment, Activities, & Pop-Up Shops

A special thank you to Tara for doing a DanceBody Fitness class demo to get us up and grooving and our hearts pumping! Mamas were able to get information from Cornerstone Family Chiropractic and booking info from Jess Jones Boudoir. Karaoke was a huge hit, with mamas singing their hearts out with tunes provided by DJ Sophie Vor. Massages by Better Bodies, a craft from AR Workshop, pop-up shop with Grove Kids Clothing, Loveliest Village Designs, The Tiny Closet, and Braid Bar with stylist Nikki, Madison, and Chasity, and a brow bar with Auburn MedSpa kept us busy, relaxed, and pampered throughout the evening.

Non-Profit Partner

We are passionate about giving back to our community and we were honored to be working with BigHouse Foundation, a local non-profit dedicated to meeting the needs and improving the quality of life for children in foster care physically, emotionally and spiritually. Thank you to all who donated at Mom’s Night Out. 

Thank you to all who came and enjoyed our FIRST birthday bash/Mom’s Night Out with us! We love meeting Auburn-Opelika mamas in person and away from our online platform. We love the opportunity to pamper and encourage you! We hope to see you at another AOMB event soon!
