a golden baptism celebration

last weekend was my favorite little girl’s sweet baptism day! what an amazing day it was – yes, it was a cold december day in wisconsin, but there was so much warmth, love + sweetness as our awesomely modern family gathered to celebrate my sweet goddaughter’s special day. (and, oh my gosh, i should also mention, that her baptism day is also my sister’s birthday = double the celebration fun!)

i’ve mentioned before how much i love and adore my sister’s style. there’s just something about how she puts a room together that just makes me envious. she puts patterns and colors and textures together in a way that i am really challenging myself to do more of in the re-nest house. (honestly, i have a list on my phone that i started when i was at her house many months ago of things that i wanted to incorporate into our house. so far, i’ve added three silk white roses to our family room. score.)

anyway, my sis had the best vision for her sweet little girl’s big baptism day. white and metallics were going to rule the day. it was during a recent trip down to our house that my sis was asking about how to make a banner she had seen online….which i had happened to make once before. i offered to make banners for my favorite little girl’s day, and that was that!

we settled on two banners: one with a “god bless penelope” message + one tissue banner featuring white, gold, and silver. as we were talking through the banners, we wanted to add some softness, or femininity to the look, so we added a little lace doily action into the “god bless penelope” banner.  alone with the modern feel of the cake plate, the tissue banner, and the table setting, the little bit of doily peeking out softened the overall look. oh, and i got to use a stock i have been dying to use from michaels….a white with gold glitter polka dot!

my sis has the best taste, and the party came together seamlessly. my bro-in-law did all of the cooking for the day (yummmmm!), and it was just a cozy day to celebrate my favorite little girl, her baptism, and my sister’s birthday too!





p.s. my sis even made rudolph’s tipsy spritzer for the special event! make sure you check out the recipe here!
