I might have gone a little picture heavy in this post, but, well, #sorrynotsorry. I'm so happy to share the beautiful baby shower that my girlfriends and I threw a few weekends ago for our friend, Melissa. Let me start by saying that all of us girls pictured in the second to last photo met at College of Charleston our freshman year. Fourteen years later... we are all still best friends! This group has the most inspiring, ambitious, caring, loving, diverse and amazing women in it. We're now spread across the U.S. (Denver! New York! Boulder! Atlanta! Lexington!), but decided to surprise our girl, Melissa, in Austin, Texas, where she lives, for a baby-ette weekend. It's like a bachelorette party but for a baby! Somehow or another we managed to keep it a surprise for months that all five of us girls (and Melissa's sister!) were flying in to surprise our momma-to-be. Needless to say, we pulled it off- it was an amazing weekend and part of that fun was this baby shower we threw for Meliss and a few of her Austin friends.
We held the baby shower during brunch time at a cute spot in Austin- Jacoby's Mercantile. We decided on a bohemian southern style theme for the shower- mom and pops, otherwise known as Melissa and Matt, met in Charleston, South Carolina and now live out their great adventures (including their best adventure today, their baby girl on the way!) based in Austin. So we had to pull in those bohemian and southern roots for the shower theme, of course. There was lots of pretty pink, peach, mint green and gold. The guest of honor got a pretty flower crown and the rest of the guests got matching flower wristlets (I made them! tutorial soon!). My friend Courtney whipped up the organic greenery displays on the tables just by browsing the floral section of Whole Foods! Court also took all of these photos, so thanks for sharing, friend. A detailed source list is below, let me know if I'm missing anything you have questions about!
