Pretty as a Picture! {Grace’s Christening}

Girls Christening Dessert Buffet

An absolutely stunning baby girl’s Christening theme, submitted to us by the amazingly talented Linda of Harper Event Design! What a dream party for her adorable little baby girl named Grace.

We are in LOVE with the spectacular colour theme, beautiful styling, attention to detail… in fact we love it all!

Girls Christening Cake

Perfectly styled cake pops tied with beautiful ivory satin bows stood proudly in front of a gorgeous 3 tier cake adorned with coral toned handmade flowers.  Everything from the feminine floral arrangements to the perfect little cupcakes helped to make this Christening dessert table really shine!

Party details as described by Linda:

I wanted to create a soft vintage feel to the room and decided on collecting hundreds of doilies to place on the tables and added tonnes of vases jars filled with foliage, silver suede and flowers. I also hand made pom poms and chocolate bars for every guest.

For the dessert table, I wanted to use pastel pink, green and blue to reflect the invitations. I had the backdrop designed to create a vintage feel and added 3 different types of cakes.

Invitations: Beautiful invitations were created by Jennifer from Jennifer Birkhead Designs. I asked Jen to create something soft with a vintage tinge to it. She followed the brief perfectly.

Decorations: I created the dessert table to showcase the sweets we had on offer. This was my first attempt at styling a dessert table and since Grace’s Christening we’ve been inundated with requests for dessert tables.

Flowers: I asked Jacki at Jaclyn Roma Floral Design for lots of flowers in jars & bottles to create a full/warmly feeling to the table.

Cake: All cake and desserts created by Helen of Kiss My Cakes. The main cake was a beautiful white fondant cake with handmade peonies, the Blue Ruffle Cake had a rainbow sponge inside and there was also the delicious Green Ombre Cake.

Unique party ideas: Personalised chocolates as bonbonierre, Pom poms for each guests and personalised menus to reflect the invitations.

Congratulations & Blessings for Grace on her Christening day! xo
