Sweet Design Company: Rustic Baptism For A Brother and Sister

By Catherine McCulloch

A baptism is a special time for any family and even more so when there are two children being baptized. Our client celebrated the baptism of their son Justin and daughter Alexandra with a large party to include their extended family and many friends. Sweet Design Company created a dessert table for the party and then designed the mini version seen in these images.

The dessert table was to have a rustic and natural feel incorporating green and pink to represent each child. In keeping with the aesthetic of the party we shot this mini version on a drop leaf gate leg antique table on the edge of a forest, in front of an old stone wall. We used natural elements like grapevine balls, moss, pine cones as well as risers made from birch branches and slices of tree trunks. Birds also played a role with a vintage looking birdcage, delicate nests and a few faux birds for added decor.

Our client asked that we incorporate both masculine and feminine elements so we balanced satin ribbon and white lace with oatmeal twine, pretty pink pedestals and apothecary jars with mason jars and a rough hewn bird house. We also used dandelions as a motif that would appeal to both a young girl and boy. Delicious dandelion spice cookies were created by Adele Schneer in pink and green. Dandelion graphics were also featured on the cake pop flags, dessert labels and monogrammed tags.

Dandelions conjure up images of children blowing on pale white seed balls, making wishes in the summer breeze. Our dandelion wishes for this family are a double blessing on the baptism of their two beautiful children.
