Floral Baptism Celebration – Real Party

I was very excited and grateful that my daughter’s Baptism celebration was been featured on the Party Inspirations blog!

My daughter Naomi Grace had her Baptism celebration one week after my elder daughters birthday party – so in order to avoid too much stress I kept it very simple and small!

Everything was based around a floral garden look/feel.

Sharon from Cakes by Sharon created the gorgeous ruffle Christening cake. I had seen this ruffle cake design by Sharon and loved it and knew I wanted it for my daughter’s Christening.

To match the floral feel, Dunne with Style made an absolutely gorgeous fabric flower garland as well as toppers which I used atop the little jars of white chocolate mousse. To say these were gorgeous is an understatement! The mousse was served with some floral spoons – image and more details further down this post.

Another favourite item of mine were the pink picket fences I used around the platters which I sourced from Saffy & May and were perfect for the floral/garden feel.

I used floral printed pop sticks from Polkadot Prints for the oreo pops I made.

I had a little drink area set up and reused the pink ruffle garland I used at Rebekah’s birthday party from Emerald and Ella. The drink dispenser is from Leo & Bella and I just added a doily decoration onto it to dress it up a little.

I set up a little area where I had the party favours – chocolate bars & wrappers for the adults from Bespoke Party Products and goodies for the kids in beautiful floral favour bags from Sweet Celebrations. The floral garden mat I placed my daughter’s picture frame on is also from Sweet Celebrations.

I used the gorgeous pom poms from Rebekah’s party again here too. They were made by Pom Pom Princess.

Here is a close up of the chocolate bars and wooden spoons from Bespoke Party Products. I thought they were just divine! I loved that I could purchase the chocolate bars with wrappers all together because with Rebekah’s party the week before I simply didn’t have time to cut printables and prepare these myself!

A close up of the name print & name blocks, Baptism Candle and a special gold cross gift she received.

The name print & blocks were from Retro Ragamuffins and I LOVE them! They are now in her room which she will eventually move into once she outgrows her bassinet. On the name print I had “Naomi” as well as the meaning of her name underneath: delightful, pleasant,  beautiful!

And here is my little darling….my favourite picture of the entire day =)







Vintage Tricycle Theme

I thought it was time to do a boys theme and one theme which I really love is that of a vintage tricycle inspired by the printables from Style Me Gorgeous. So I’ve decided to do this post on a tricycle or bicycle theme – a great theme if you want to do a classic traditional theme for a boy =)

You could combine this theme with another item as well. For example on the Style Me Gorgeous printables they are combined with a kite. Other printables combine a tricycle with other vintage toys. I also saw a vintage tricycle and ice cream party. So really anything could work and the vintage feel could tie it together.

I’ve based most of my selections on blues and brown/cream tones and vintage items however I know all of you fab blog readers of mine could make any colour work well =)


These are the gorgeous printables which originally inspired this post! I love the colour scheme and the classic look:

For paper based invitations this tablerunner in brown would suit – and it has polka dots on the back if you want to change the design!

You could use a custom nursery print such as this for an extra decoration on your party table and a special keepsake:

Bee Theme

As we enter the warmer months and garden parties are being planned I thought I’d do a post on a Bee theme which is lovely for the outdoors.

This is cute for boys or girls, baby showers or even for mixed gender twins birthdays! The most common colour scheme seen is yellow/black/white but you could incorporates blues or pinks, or perhaps add some green for a garden feel.

You can combine this theme with a general garden theme, butterfly theme or ladybug theme.

Kite Theme

Let’s go fly a kite!

This unique and fun theme is starting to become popular and after being inspired by some beautiful real Kite parties I thought it would be lovely to gather some ideas for this theme as we head into the warmer months! It’s a perfect one for all ages and can be styled for a boy or a girl. The best thing about this theme is being able to include some kite making and kite flying as part of your party which the children and parents are sure to enjoy!

You might also want to have a look at my Aeroplane theme post here for some cloud decorations which can work into this theme. You can also incorporate pinwheels into this theme and you can view my Pinwheel theme post here.

Any colour combination can work for this party but I’ve chosen some options in blues and whites to go with the sky/clouds colour. However if you view the amazing “Real Parties” listed at the bottom of this post you will see a lovely range of colours which could work for you!

Contact me regarding my online party planning services if you want a full range of inspiration for this theme:

You could use some simple paper kites for decorations or create a paper banner in the shape of kites as well. Another idea is to create a backdrop or decorations to resemble the tail of a kite – so tying litle bows with ribbon or tissue paper onto long hanging strings.
