Charleston Baby Shower

Baby shower #2 was hosted in May by my sweet girlfriends here in Charleston. They put together such a beautiful shower. As I've mentioned before, I truly appreciate all the little details when it comes to planning parties and events, and they did a wonderful job with everything. For example, the cake below was not only gorgeous, but also had a delicious Oreo filling which is one of my favorites. It's the little things that make me smile. 
Let me preface this next photo by saying that I would like to think I have a pretty sophisticated palate for the most part, but at the same time I do love a good pizza roll. I got a nice laugh when I saw these on the table, perfectly plated with a side of ranch, and then I proceeded to eat more than I care to admit to.

From sorority functions to baby showers, these women are so special to me. I was so happy that we could all be together to celebrate baby Smith! 
And these two pretty ladies are hosting a shower for me this coming Sunday. :)
I was showered with so many wonderful gifts, but this one was extra special. My mom gave me my late grandmother's bible with her name monogrammed on the bottom. It makes me sad that my nanny isn't here to meet her great-grandson, but I find peace in having things around that remind me her.
My dear friend Megan hosted the shower at her beautiful home and her sweet baby girl, Rosie joined the fun too!
The orange drink at the mocktail bar was a remake of this one I had at The Ordinary. Also, maybe it's just because I haven't had a drink in months, but I thought this Non-Alcoholic Shiraz Rosé was so refreshing and tasted almost like the real thing. 
How cute are these cookies with my due date on them that were give out as favors?

It was such a treat to have all of my girlfriends together to celebrate our baby boy. You really begin to cherish these moments more and more as different milestones in your life are celebrated. I'm so fortunate to be surrounded by so many woman who love and support me. Thank you to my sweet friends for hosting such a beautiful shower!
