on baby lyman.
My best friend Mollie is due to have a baby in early October. She's the first one of our 'group' to bring life into this world so we all convened in Charlotte to shower her and her husband Grant with love and support.
Watching someone you've known since you were 14 prepare to be a mom is a crazy experience. I could not be happier for these two. They are going to be amazing parents.
Mollie wished for a casual evening at the brewery with friends, good food and no pressure. For floral she was inspired by a trip the coast of Italy so we stuck with olive branch, yellows and bright reds and pinks. Any day you get to make your best friend a flower crown with a giant dahlia is a good day. And these photos make me happy. We are all together so rarely that I treasure some of these images.
A big thank you to the lovely Jon Courville for sharing his talents with us. We hosted this event at Sugar Creek Brewery in Charlotte and rentals were from Vintage Charlotte. Note: I made the chalkboard but the ridiculous hand lettering is thanks to my best friend Dina.
