I am always inspired by unique ideas for traditional parties, and a Christening celebration is one special occasion that is becoming an opportunity for parents and party planners alike to express their creativity. Although a Christening celebrated in traditional white is simply stunning, there is something to be said for mixing traditional with new themes and ideas that represent the personality of the child, the parents and the extended family and friends.
Niki from Candy Soiree’s (0409 965 914) is one of Pink Frosting’s party planner customers and she sent me these stunning photos of a combined Christening and First Birthday party reception she styled recently for baby Sundae. Photos are all by Ba Ba Bambini Photography. I hope they inspire you as much as they delighted me!
The contrasting colours of yellow and black really work for this Christening. Although I love this colour combination for weddings, I had never before contemplated the hues for a Christening or children’s party – but don’t they look sensational? Because of the whimsical polka dots and feminine use of butterfly motifs, the stark colours look sweet. I love the way Niki and her team have used the budget-conscious Pink Frosting paper lanterns and made them really unique by embellishing them with butterfly cutouts – genius.
The candy bar is a delectable display of bananas, jelly beans, personalised chocolate bars and traditional lemon sweets. Perfect for a Christening and first birthday celebration.
The Christening bombonieres were silver butterfly bookmark favours from Pink Frosting’s online bomboniere shop. Niki personalised the bonbonieres by decorating simple white favour boxes with polka dot paper, white satin ribbon and the silver butterflies tied on top.
I think we’ll all be inspired to decorate Christenings with unique and personal themes. Thank you Niki!
