Party with Moms—Cheers to Moms of all ages!

PARTYWITHMOMS.COM is a unique website that celebrates and serves Moms through original content.

Each Monday, a different  Mom of the Week  tells her story: entrepreneurs, bankers, authors, artists, marketers, doctors, lawyers, decorators & even some celebrities --- ALL are MOMS, first and foremost.

Every Thursday, we offer either an interactive parenting column or an educational blog.

We feature fun events, restaurants, health/fitness opportunities, shops, educational programs, and home improvement companies in the Fairfield County area catering to Moms and their families.

Party with Moms believes fun and philanthropy go hand in hand. We are inspired by the many moms who, after managing their own lives, families and jobs, volunteer to help others. Our very casual clothing line and our annual Golf Outing allow us to give back to local charities. Follow us @partywithmoms :)
