Sweet Design Company: Caterina's Baptism

By Catherine McCulloch

A baptism is a cause for joy and celebration. For the baptism of our client's baby girl Caterina, we created a large dessert table at the reception for all of their guests to enjoy. We also styled a mini version of the sweet display with a soft snowy backdrop.

The theme for the party was vintage elegance in pastel shades of dusty rose and cream with a tea party aesthetic. Silver accents in cake pedestals, candy jars and the teapot added shimmer while cut crystal plates and dishes brought another layer of texture and sparkle. Beautiful bone china teacups in various shades of pink came from the extensive collection of Vintage Dish Rental. Placing a couple of teacups on the candelabra provided a little whimsy to the table.

In keeping with the delicate treats found at a tea party we included gorgeous flower shaped lemon sugar cookies with tiny polka dots from Adell Schneer who creates art on each cookie. Chocolate carmel truffles, white chocolate dipped pretzels, and strawberry macarons from European Patisserie were favorite treats along with cupcakes in chocolate mint, lemon raspberry and vanilla. Little bowls of candy added flavour variety and color.

A winter scene with soft white snow was the perfect backdrop for this dessert table. A caring family filled with love and faith is the perfect backdrop for Caterina's childhood.
