J and three sweet friends threw the most amazing baby shower for Baby Ed and me at Forest Heights Country Club in Statesboro. You may have seen a few pics on Instagram. These are a few more of our favorites! We’ll start from the beginning…
Our favorite girls at Colonial House of Flowers set the mood with this gorgeous centerpiece. See more of their work here and here.
we love every single thing the girls at colonial house of flowers come up with.
I was so glad my mom was able to make the trip. We all missed my mother-in-law, who was (smartly) cruising in cooler temps.
big brother-to-be joe, my mom jan and me. our coordinating lilly pulitzer outfits were unplanned.
My favorite surprise of the day was…a FLOWER CROWN! I have never been so excited (or so glad that I didn’t do my hair in a top-knot). I had a really hard time taking it off at the end of the
from left: jennifer, me, kate.
I was so excited and flattered that three of the hostesses were repping my stores! From left: Christa is wearing a skirt from Social Statesboro and Jack Rogers “Georgica” sandals from Sole Statesboro. J’s wearing an ASOS gypsy dress and fringe booties from Lulu’s (sold out, similar here). I’m wearing a vintage Lilly Pulitzer dress (a hand-me-down from my mom – I actually wore this five years ago to a baby shower for Joe!) and Tory Burch heels (incredibly old, also seen here). Kate’s wearing a Love Poppy leather tassel necklace from Sole Statesboro. Niki’s wearing Spanx cropped denim leggings (they’re also a favorite of mine), Jack Rogers “Lauren” sandals and a Sneak Peek top, all from Sole Statesboro.

Everyone who knows me knows I live for brunch. I was so happy to see quiche and mini-pancakes on the menu!
i crushed two *big* pieces of quiche before the brunch was over.
a little cheese, a little fruit…
i heart printed straws.
Jennifer brought cupcakes from the Atlanta outpost of Georgetown Cupcake. I am obsessed with peanut butter, so she set aside one of those just for me. #truefriend The “E” flags are from Etsy.
dry ice may or may not have been involved in the transport of these beauties from atlanta.
I had the cutest little helpers opening gifts: Joe and his BBFL Leo.
these two were so excited to open all the presents!
joe is going to be a great big brother.
oh hi, christa and jennifer!
my friend Val (left) is exactly two weeks ahead of me…she’s due any day now!
this was joe’s SECOND red velvet cupcake of the morning.
Kate arranged these simple and cute rock candy favors. Joe was fascinated with these…and then he really flipped when he realized it was actual CANDY.
a little something sweet for guests to take home.
gifts for the hostesses with the mostestes.
Each hostess received a small succulent in mercury glass from Colonial House.
succulents are my jam. because i kill pretty much every other plant.
Post-shower, Joe and I hung out in Ed’s new nursery. He told me “Mom, that was a GREAT PARTY.”…and I totally agree. I was overwhelmed at how beautiful everything was, and how these four friends nailed all of my favorite things. Baby Ed and I are so lucky to have four such incredible women in our lives.
five hours later and i’m still wearing the flower crown.
