We love our clients but sometimes we L O V E our clients!! When we first spoke to Eleni we fell in love not only with her personality but with what she had in mind for her daughter’s Baptism celebration. Some people have the kindest souls that make you want to be a better person, a person that loves wholeheartedly and is not afraid to show it! Emme is just the cutest and happiest baby and we couldn’t be happier sharing this cheerful album with you!
Baby Emme’s Baptism celebration was inpired by Eleni’s love of fairies and all things magical. We couldn’t resist creating little forest like moments on the tables with fairy touches throughout the room.
The invitations suite started with bark like dark brown paper, a creamy shimmery card stock layer on top with hanging greenery and little pink butterflies and of course a little fairy dotting the “i”. The pink, green and natural brown color palette was used throughout the decor and little frames on the tables with cute fairy quotes.
For the service our Ceremonial Candles were created with sparkly butterflies and pretty pink fabric and ribbon details. The witness pins, martyrika, were made up of pink and green ribbons with a small silver cross and green leaf detail placed in a silk brown box with a fairy sitting on top, it’s always about the little details;)
For the reception celebration, the place cards were placed on a hanging ribbons on our trellis. the hanging greenery on top coordinated with the greenery on the invitations. The wooden tree trunk holding the large floral arrangement was made to look like a Fairy house. Each place card had a small wooden butterfly attached.
The flower arrangements consisted of three looks; the silver lantern with floral coming out of the front door, the tall tree like fixtures with greenery wrapped around their trunks, and the wild arrangement with a glass dome housing a small fairy. We used different shades of pink flowers and lots of different greenery. At the honor table, a small fairy house was placed by the lantern and of course a bottle of pixie dust!
The kids activity table included making your own pixie dust, a must for a fairy party along with a sparkly wand, and coloring pages from our favorite Enchanted Forrest coloring book. On the back of the little guests’ chairs, fairy wings or butterfly catchers were attached.
We can’t forget to mention the gorgeous and oh so fresh cake by Madame Gateau! Look at that detail on the sugar flowers and butterflies. Eleni had the most precious photos taken of baby Emme dressed up in her fairy wings that we placed at the cake table…how adorable right?!
All in all it was the perfect event for a gorgeous sunny day and lovely celebration. We can’t wait to work on Emme’s first birthday party celebration, filled with lots of sunshine, happiness and love! Congratulations Emme on your special day!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
