I was excited to share my daughters Swan themed Baptism in the first issue of “Celebrating Little Ones” magazine which you can view here
I always knew if this little 4th child of ours was a little girl then a “Swan” theme was what I would pick for her Baptism theme as well as her Nursery theme. It was a lot of fun finding and sourcing various pieces to incorporate into the decorations and of course I used the vendors listed on the LLC children’s party directory!
For our family the Baptism day of our children is quite important and special and so even though our guest list was small I still wanted to create something beautiful to celebrate the occasion.
All the beautiful photos were by Captured by Kirri
This gorgeous invitation from Emma Smith Event Stationery set the scene for the Swan theme and included beautiful gold foil lettering!:
I wanted everything to be very soft and pretty and the backdrop from Dream a little Dream Events along with the feather garlands from Ruby Rabbit Partyware helped incorporate the feather look which was also framed so beautifully with the balloon garland with tassels from Party Splendour
I like keeping my setups uncomplicated as far as the layout of desserts – as you can see the table is quite uncluttered and symmetrical. When you have young kids you want your dessert table setup to be easy because it definitely is not the only thing you will be getting ready on the morning!
The grey marble and pink cake stands I just loved from Petite Events Hire so I really wanted to include them in this setup along with their pretty white console table.
I also carried the softness of the feathers down to the floor with the sheepskin rug and all the decor filling under the table from Ruby Rabbit Partyware:
Personal touches are important for me when planning a dessert table for one of my children and this gorgeous gold mirror sign from Communicake It added that personalised touch and I knew I could also display it and keep it in Leah’s nursery which I have now done. It was also easily blutacked onto the backdrop and nice and light weight!:
Party Splendour managed to incorporate some soft feathers into the balloons:
For the cake by Macaron Delights – I wanted to keep things simple and elegant and topped with a sweet Swan topper from Poppies for Grace:
For the rest of the desserts I aimed to carry on the colour schemes of pinks, whites, and golds and these meringue kisses from Quincy Lane honestly tasted as good as they looked. They are SO easy to devour it is hard not to eat 5…or 10 !
The macarons by Macaron Delights were also oh so delicious!!
The elegant swan cookies from Frosted by Nicci were inspired by the invitations and were just gorgeous and Nicci did a beautiful job matching them to the invitations!! Kids love cookies so I always ensure to have some on my kids dessert tables:
Using a swan mould from Confectionately Yours I created some white chocolate swans to add to the table. I’m no baker at all and these chocolates are not perfect – but it was a bit fun making these and reminded me of my childhood when we use to make chocolates.
I love fairy floss from Fluffy Crunch any day of the week so I loved incorporating this soft dessert on the table! Fairy floss can only be served and displayed just before the guests are ready to eat it – so I did have more in tubs ready to serve as guests ate – which was handy as the fairy floss went FAST!
The Poppes for Grace feather garlands which I sourced from Ruby Rabbit Partyware added such a pretty touch and I now have the pink one displayed in Leah’s room:
The pretty white and gold plates and take home bags were also from Ruby Rabbit Partyware. They were so gorgeous to use for dessert plates and to fill with desserts for guests to take home to enjoy later!
This beautiful print from Toucan is one I chose also for Leah’s room and it suited the setup for the dessert table so well also:
The special girl of the moment herself ! 2 months old and ready for her special day:
And a special family photo before we headed off to the Church!:

Thanks for viewing my daughters Swan themed Baptism ! It truly was lovely to put together and a very special day for our family!
An American Indian theme has become so popular this last year and I love this gorgeous party we are showcasing today as the colours are bright and vibrant and the theme has really come to life through the props and styling from Sydney based Sweet Heavenly Events Hire!
As Mary from Sweet Heavenly Events explains: “Vicky came to us and told us what she had in mind for her daughter Valentina’s Birthday. We jumped at the chance of styling something unique and amazing. We got to work with our crazy and talented bunch of vendors to design something gorgeous. Using our Marble timber stands and our copper table ware it was a true masterpiece.”

A Magpie isn’t a typical animal that comes to mind when you think of ‘baby shower’..or any party in fact…but be ready to open your mind and be surprised at how this humble bird has inspired such a gorgeous celebration!
Welcome to the 3rd shoot in the series of Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoots for the recent gorgeous Confetti Fair Magazine – each one inspired by a different bird but without featuring any images of the bird itself in the shoot. Missed the previous posts? Catch up here on the Swan shoot and Flamingo shoot
This stylish baby shower for a baby boy was based around a monochrome palette but bringing in pops of mint green and incorporating an on-trend marble pattern. I love the decor and tableware which was incorporated and the cake and desserts are nothing short of amazing!
