A Black and White Baby Shower

On Friday I shared a few peeks into our recent "sprinkle", held for 3 of my college best friends who are all expecting their second baby. 
Today, I am sharing the super chic baby shower we planned for our friend Lauren, a first-time mommy-to-be. She and her husband are not finding out the gender, so it's twice as exciting to wait for the big day when the baby arrives! 

When planning this shower, we immediately decided to center the party around a color scheme of black and white, Lauren's favorite. With animal accents in gold and crisp flowers in green and white, well, I think it looked just like our beautiful mommy-to-be. :) 

Held at 10th & Piedmont in Midtown, we reserved two long banquet style tables and decorated them ourselves (it was like we were on an HGTV show, we did it so fast!). 

Hollie's black and white striped table clothes made the whole table. Jill had coordinated small paper goods with the black and white invitation she designed, so the place settings looked fabulous. A combination of everyone's gold chargers paired with the restaurant's white plates and linens worked perfectly. 

I used the gold animals from Henry's 1st birthday party to line the center of the table, along with my arrangements of white roses, green mums, yellow roses, and white daisies. 
A presh cookie from Two Crazy Cookies sat at each place setting as well. 


All of the hostesses for Lauren's baby shower:
Jill, Glenn, Meredith, Meghan, Me, Hollie, Kim, and Renee




Me and My Mom! 



And here's our whole group, all the mamas with the daughters, and our little princess Miss Elly too

Sprinkles Sprinkles Sprinkles


I love my friends.
No, seriously. Like LOVE them. 
I'm so incredibly blessed to call them mine, and have experienced so so so many of life's biggest triumphs and tragedies and beautiful moments and wonderful surprises with them.
We've all been friends since freshman year at UGA (13 years ago!!!!) so they're no stranger to my blog or my Instagram account. 
Honestly, if you know me, then chances are, you know all of them too. 

There are 8 mommies in our big group, 4 of which are preggie right now. Three of them are on baby numero dos, so we decided to have a lil sprinkle for them, and a full on shower for the new mommy-to-be. 

Here, I am sharing a few {grainy} iPhone pics of the precious, colorful sprinkle we did for them a few weeks ago at La Madeline (Hello, tomato soup). Its so fun that our moms have all gotten to be good friends too, and having the whole group there was just a ball.

_________________________________________

We set the tables in a private room with favors, fun straws, and lively flowers. 


I made some pretty cute flower arrangements for the occasion using pink carnations, lavender daisies, yellow roses, and gorgeous coral parrot tulips. 


Polka dots were everywhere, lining the tables and draped from the chandelier. Our friend Jill and her mama sewed them all together - too pumped to have all these fun colors in the party stash! 


My friend Linsey of Two Crazy Cookies made the adorable and delicious thumbprint cookies with colorful sprinkles on top. 


There are two girls and a boy on the way, and it was so fun to watch them open all the adorable baby goodies! 


Our friend Kim, the super-chef, made this delicious and adorable sprinkle cake for dessert. Tissue dots were across the table for color! 


And here's our group - the best friends ever! 
Kim, Renee, Lauren, Me, Hollie, and Jill are in back. 
And our "sprinkled" mamas on front: Meredith, Glenn, and Meghan

Another Move on the Books :)


Weekend before last, we moved from our house on the water to another house here in Gainesville. 
It was a big decision to move away from the lake for us, but we are thrilled to be a part of such a fun, young neighborhood now, and in a house that has all of the old character I could ever want. Built in the 1940's, and extensively updated and renovated, we are already having a ball making it our own. Henry is super happy with the neighborhood and our great yard, and that's all we could hope for! 

Of course, we already miss our other house too - its easy for the tears to come when I think about all that happened in that house over the 3 years we were there, but we left it better than we found it, and made so many wonderful memories there with our family and friends. 

I am going to be sharing a TON of what I've got going on at the "new" house, promise. Sorry for the lack of blogging, but I am still knee deep in boxes, and my little 22 month old isn't so keen on mommy hanging plates instead of playing with trains. 

I'll be posting a bunch more pics and client deets on my new Maggie Griffin Design Instagram account. Ya'll head on over and click "follow" so you wont miss any of the fun stuff. 




Here's the front of our "new" house 



And of course, the ONLY room close to "finished" is Henry's space :))
