    Beautiful shower! You look radiant and there’s nothing more beautiful than welcoming a baby into a loving home. Also, I applaud you for wearing heels that late into your pregnancy. Love the last photo of your family of 3 and I hope you start adding a few family inspired blog posts in the future. :-)

  31. Beautiful décor Rach…you look gorgeous.

  32. Jenny V. says:

    I love it when a shower is elegant and not splashes of pink baby themed items. How absolutely gorgeous! I’ve followed your blog for a while now and have seen your wedding photos, video, now your baby shower, it seems like you are definitely living the fairy tale life! I can honestly say that even my own wedding day wasn’t nearly as beautiful as this. I love how the guests were asked to wear white or blush. The pictures turn out so much nicer, otherwise it’s a hodge podge of outfit patterns and colors which can ruin an otherwise beautiful photo opp. I know you are appreciative of your sister and mom’s efforts but I really truly hope you understand just how blessed and lucky you are girl! Most of us will never have a wedding day, engagement party, bridal shower, baby shower, etc., that will even come close!

  33. Vanessa says:

    Such gorgeous pictures, congratulations again! :)

  34. Everything looks amazing and so beautiful! They really did a great job. All of the floral arrangements are stunning, and so are you! Can’t wait for the arrival of the baby! :)


  35. Colleen says:

    Hi Rachel,

    Beautiful shower! I am wondering where you and your two other sisters got the dresses you were wearing?


    • Rachel Parcell says:

      Emily’s dress is from J.Crew, she just barely got it so it should still be available. Amy’s is from TopShop last summer :)

  36. Jessica says:

    This is absolutely beautiful! I wish I had the budget for showers I have thrown for friends!

  37. Rachel says:

    What a gorgeous shower! The flowers are amazing! I loved having my own baby shower for my little girl, and I treasure the memories :)

  39. Jen says:

  104. Kimberly says:

    HI there! I was just looking through your pictures and fell in LOVE with your baby shower dress. I am pregnant and would love to have that dress. I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind, telling me the size of the dress you had to get to accommodate the baby bump so I can judge what size I would need.

    thank you so much!!

  105. Simply Fabulous, from A to Z!
    This type of elegance will never go out of style :)

  106. Whitney says:

    Rach Your shower looks Ah-mah-zing! I love the colors and soft tones.
    I’m also having a shower coming up to celebrate my coming little one,
    and have been on the look out for the perfect dress and I LOVE your whole wardrobe.
    You are gorgeous!
    How did finding the right size for you go? Since this particular dress
    Is not maternity, how did you know the right size for you? Any advise?

  107. Deanna DeBye says:

    Where is your dress from?

Rach Parcell

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
