Eliana’s baptism

19 Oct

Welcome to God’s family sweet baby girl!

Such a beautiful day.  we channeled Kris and kept it “simple and elegant”


Eliana baptism

The sponsors:  Karen and Emmett Gundvaldson and Crystal Peterson


Guests typed a blessin’ for Eliana on a vintage pink typewriter…(the “g” isn’t working)

Baptism Baptism


Tablescape Tablescape

A pink and gold color scheme was reflected in the chevron and  confetti placemats and napkins as well as gold tissue confetti.   Carin spray painted Ball canning jars gold first with a matt finish and then with a glitter texture.  We filled them with baby’s breath.  First we bought twice as much as we thought we would need, and then went back for twice that amount in order to get the look Carin wanted.  The church had a large funeral a few days after the baptism and were able to use the jars and baby’s breath on their tables.

Lunch was simple but YUMMY!  Chicken salad croissants, noodle slaw and broccoli filled some of my favorite hobnail milk glass pieces and a mix of vintage and reproduction pink depression glass:


and punch and sweets:



French macaroons, cake pops, lemon filled with gramcracker’s jam and topped with vanilla bean buttercream frosting cupcakes, ruffle cake, krumcakes, meringue cookies rounded out the sweets.

it was a delightful day.

    It was a beautiful day and Eliana sure looked adorable and the boys with such big smiles on their faces. You should have used one of Kris’s pieces to go on your table!

      Neither of those beauties made the trip home intact and are still awaiting re-gluing!
