Harper's Baptism

This past weekend was my niece's baptism. I had the honour of being named co-Godmother (lucky duck has 4 Godparents!) She was a perfect angel throughout the ceremony. She was the only baby out of 6 to not cry -- she actually slept through most of it! I'll give her an awesome high five for that in a couple years. The weather couldn't have been more perfect and the ceremony was lovely and personal.

The reception was held at a local restaurant/bar which had a cute cottage feel to it with one of the largest and prettiest chandies I have ever seen! #chandelierobsession Sorry about the slight blurriness.

Anyway, back to the main event. My sister-in-law decided on a hot pink and light pink colour scheme which was perfect for her almost 5 month old. My favourite part was the cake set up. The cake was ombre and delicious too. On either side were various pink coloured cookies and treats. And of course the cupcake liner pomanders we made for decoration! (I'll post a DIY tutorial for those tomsies.)

Each guest received a cute giveaway consisting of a framed photo of Harper in her baptism dress and a pink rosary. Note the headband! So pretty and vintage-looking. She wore it all day. Such a trooper!

The day went off without a hitch. All the guests also signed a little booklet for her to read when she's older.

Now she can enjoy being an official member of the Church and a beautiful Child of God. We love you, Harper!
