Great to be Eight Baptism Party + Treats.

London turns TEN this weekend!
I'm sorta in denial.

It seems like JUST yesterday she was born.  
And then again just yesterday that she was baptized a member of our church.

In honor of her birthday weekend I'm sharing ALL of the details from her baptism {after}party. It was one of my very favorite parties to plan.  Ever.

And good news: if you'd like to throw your own sweet little girly girl a GREAT TO BE EIGHT party...I'm offering ALL of these printables in my Etsy shop now HERE!

Just download and print and you're good to go!

I knew just a few things that I wanted go accomplish with this party:

1. I wanted it to showcase London! {which I did by displaying photos of her everywhere}

2. I wanted desserts only {her baptism was at a weird time which ruled out a brunch of lunch type or thing}

3. I wanted the colors and printables to be PINK and feminine.

Here's what I came up with:

I made an 8x10 printable sign that sorta went along with the whole 'sweet treat' theme. I placed it on the middle of our dessert bar.

I love music - - especially primary music! - - and I had the grandiose idea of coming up with a 'Primary song title' for each of our desserts. 

Bytheway: Fluff = Cotton Candy

 I also created 2 inch circles that said either 'I Am a Child of God' or '8' and I placed them on some of my truffle sticks - - these could also be used as cupcake toppers.

Hands down my favorite food card was:
"I Stand All Amazed {at this} Chocolate Cake

I am such a dork.

But seriously.
Have you tried my mom's chocolate cake?

As for the tables where people sat to eat, I ran pink wrapping paper right across them and added paper ribbon, milk glass vases with flowers and $1 Ikea frames with pictures.

London was pleased as punch with the outcome, as were we. It was such a beautiful afternoon spent with friends and family.
