I was very excited to launch The Mum Club with my friend and colleague Simone back in December, as a club and support group for Mums in Dubai. The idea started one Friday afternoon back in November (as with most of our ideas, fuelled by good coffee) and as our discussions grew, we quickly realised this was what Dubai was missing. An idea grew into a plan – and then we launched The Mum Club with three events in December.
1. Mum’s Night Out
Date: Tuesday 8th December
Venue: Sicilia at Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel
What happened: After ordering drinks and pulling crackers on the table, we tucked into a vast antipasti spread, delicious Italian mains, and melt-in-the desserts, washed down with fantastic Italian wines, soft drinks, and water on the table. We all agreed that we would visit Sicilia again for a date night soon. The service was also impeccable! A few ladies came with friends and others on their own, but everyone loved the friendly, warm feeling of our night out – and we are all excited about doing it all over again in January!
In the Goody Bags: Voucher for Pastels Salon, Voucher for Euromed Dubai, Voucher for The Studio, 2 x Tickets for Dubai Winter Festival, Pencils and Gift Cards from Little Majlis, Notebooks from Caramel & Sun, Discount vouchers for Apples & Drawers and Discount Voucher for Icicle Beauty Center, Dubai Marina.
To Book: Sicilia, Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel (+971 4 444 0000)
2. Christmas Party and Playdate
Date: Wednesday 9th December
Venue: Caboodle, City Walk
What happened: Little ones and their Mummies gathered at Caboodle, City Walk for a Christmas Party and Play date! There was sliding, climbing, dressing up, cookie decorating, story time, and a tea time of healthy Munch Boxes, courtesy of Book Munch. Most importantly, there was lots of laughter, Christmas songs playing out, and everyone grabbing a packed goody bag on their way out of the door!
In the Goody Bags: Gift Packs by The Happy Box, Presents from Caramel & Sun, Voucher for The Studio, 2 x Tickets for Dubai Winter Festival, Discount vouchers for Apples & Drawers and Discount Voucher for Icicle Beauty Center, Dubai Marina.
To visit: Caboodle Pamper & Play, City Walk, Jumeirah 1 (+971 4 344 4570)
3. Coffee Morning
Date: Tuesday 15th December
Venue: Raw Cafe, Umm Suqeim
What happened: A very casual, relaxed coffee morning at Raw Cafe, drinking amazing coffee, nibbling on the delicious breakfast spread, and enjoying help from nurses at Babies & Beyond with little ones. It was a fun morning – and we have fallen head over heels for the cool, convenient venue (and strong cups of Raw Coffee, of course!)
Visit: Raw Cafe, The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, Umm Suqeim
