First up - Rachel's baby shower! Can't wait to meet baby Matthews and find out if it is a boy or a girl (my money is on boy!).
Edible Art did a great job copying the Noah's arc theme from the invitation on the cake & cookies.
Carolina Country Club in Raleigh
Favors - animal cookies & silver baby cup w/ Reece's Pieces
We had people write messages in the ZooBorns book -- advice to the Baby about Rachel or to Rachel with advice about being a mom. We tried to keep it fun and relevant to the animal picture on the page, which got interesting.
Marlowe is next after Rachel!
All the girls
and the ladies!
Then we headed to Charlotte to celebrate Grayson and Matt at their engagement party! Looking forward to these two tying the knot at the farm in July. You'll notice I wore the same J. Crew shift dress, just changed the accessories up.
The happy couple with Grayson's parents
All the ladies
Then Sunday morning a group of us hosted a kitchen shower for Grayson at my parents' house. Big THANK YOU to my mom for all her hard work to make this such a lovely brunch! She pulled the rest of us together.
