I can’t believe Mia’s baptism was 4 years ago! And now that I was searching for some files for Emma’s baptism, I realized I never shared all the details and photos from Mia’s baptism.
One of my favorites DIY’s from the baptism was the Banner on the back of the dessert table. I wish I have a closer look, but I don’t have a better picture. I painted an unfinished laser cut wooden sign from Michaels in white. Then I made a name stencil using vinyl and cutting it with the cricut, then I painted it in pink.
At the dessert table we had a Vanilla bean poppy seed cake filled with dulce de Leche. I made the edible lamb cake topper using gumpaste. We also have cake pops, cookies (available on my Etsy shop) , and the traditional guatemalan dulcitos de leche.
I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the centerpieces but still wanted something special. All the vases are from the Dollar tree, and I placed one or two flowers on each vase.
I only used white hydrangeas and pink carnations. I also made some yarn balls, covering styrofoam balls with yarn.
Each plate had a decenary made of white jordan almonds, wrapped with tulle.
Hosting the reception our home was a lot work, but I did prepare most of things with a lot of time in advance and we had helping hands with family that came to visiting.
If you have any questions or need a reference of something I used please let me know in the comments, I will be happy to hear from you.
