Molly's Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party

Last weekend was Molly's Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party and I had so much fun being with her and getting to know/reuniting with many of her Bridesmaids. She has a great group of girls, and we are going to have a blast at the wedding!

Molly had a beautiful corsage to wear for her shower, that her mom and MOH had asked me to pick up. I was very pleased with how this came out.

We had a champagne toast before Molly started opening her presents

  And then it was present time!

And of course, she had to model the gift ribbon hat!

Of course, I have to highlight the desserts. These lavender cookies, homemade by Molly's mom, stole the show. She used fresh lavender's from Sally's own garden!
Our favors were wrapped mini jars filled with honey from a local farm in Pennsylvania. Attached to that was a tea bag. Molly's dad hand-wrote each of the labels on the honey jars:

Molly was so lucky to be surrounded by such a great group of loving, supportive people in her life who were all there to kick-off her wedding festivities!

Mark was very overwhelmed when he arrived and saw an entire room filled with presents. Like a good fiance, he diligently packed up the car and then posed for a few pictures. After-all, he's going to have to get used to this soon enough!
The future Mr. and Mrs.!
That night, we went out for Molly's Bachelorette party. We went to one of my favorite restaurants in PA, Melt, for dinner and then up to the rooftop bar afterward.

One more month to go until their big day!

I just saw this post. Molly's shower sounds like it was as warm and wonderful as she is. Love the "Honey" favors and can't wait to try the lavendar cookies as my lavendar is in full bloom. Love that fireplace, too.
