Sweet Vintage Pink Bunny Christening!

Sweet Vintage Pink Bunny Christening!


 Last weekend I had my 5 month old baby girl baptized and it turned out just beautiful! I wanted to share how it turned out and who I had the absolutely pleasure of helping me create a memorable and special occasion! I worked with several wonderful women who made all the small details count and really matter!




The Invitation

I asked my sweet friend  Kori from Paper & Pigtails to help me design a one of a kind sweet vintage pink invitation with polka dots, damask, a bunny and cross on it! I also asked if we could do a wrought-iron scroll border around it and this is what she designed! It was absolutely beautiful and EXACTLY what I had wanted!!! Isn't it pretty?!? The printables she did to match were just as darling and beautiful!




The Gown
I found this gorgeous gown at: www. PinkPrincess.com and it was absolutely beautiful! If you need a christening gown or know of anyone who needs one I highly recommend this site!! Great finds for sure!



The Reception


 I wanted my daughter's baptism's theme to have a light pink vintage feel with touches of polka dots, damasks and a sweet bunny throughout the theme. The main color scheme was light pink, creams, and touches of silver. The decor was very minimal because it was at this gorgeous hotel and I wanted to do something small. I wanted the feel of the theme to be a vinatge pink with a small french flair to it. So I decided that the food would have a french theme to it was well!  It was very simple but very sweet!

                  The Result!



I was originally going to have alot of desserts on the table but since I had gone for a "french theme for the menu" there was a buffet style table as well as a table full of mini french pastries! There would have been way too many desserts and sweets!I wanted the people to eat up the cookies, donut bites, chocolate covered oreos and the cake as well even though it was soo pretty to cut into! So, I kept it sweet and simple!
