Hartsock, 28, threw the party in her new home of Seattle, inviting the girls up to the Pacific Northwest for a weekend of presents, treats, and quality time. After making it to the final episodes of Sean Lowe‘s season of The Bachelor, Hartsock went on to star in her own season of The Bachelorette, meeting her fiance Chris Siegfried, and later becoming good friends with other Bachelor and Bachelorette alums like Oteri, Crawley, and Solomon.

“A few of the girls from Juan’s season were there to support her like Clare and Lauren Solomon,” Hartsock tells Us Weekly of Oteri, who starred in Juan Pablo Galavis‘ 18th season of The Bachelor earlier this year. “[Oteri’s Bachelor costars] Cassandra Ferguson and Alli Restko were invited but couldn’t attend. [Bachelor season 13 star] Molly Mesnick made it, of course.”

Oteri announced her pregnancy with her second child earlier this year, after marrying her love Bracy Maynard this past March. She is also living in Seattle with her 9-year-old son Ben from a past relationship, as Maynard needed to relocate to the Washington city for work. 

“Renee’s shower was [Sunday] and it was so much fun having everyone there for her! I had it at Trophy Cupcake & Party Room in Seattle and it was a great space to decorate however I wanted,” Hartsock tells Us. “The theme for Renee’s shower was beachy since she is from Florida and loves the beach — not to mention, I do too! — so that made it easy to decorate.”
