Little Guy In A Tie Baby Blessing Party

Here is the LITTLE GUY IN A TIE BABY BLESSING PARTY I planned for our newest addition. It was a wonderful day, and a perfect way to celebrate our new baby and his baby blessing. I know that Easton wont remember any of this and didn't even know what was going on, but he will have these pictures...and he will know how much his mama and everyone else loved him.

I went with a very light color pallet. Everything was white, really light green and really light blue. The dessert/sweets table was set up on a vintage dresser {that I painted white}. I used white and clear cake stands, platters and plates. I also incorporated eyelet into the mix. The printables {tags, labels, toppers, invite, banner, etc} were ordered from the sweet Kori of Paper And Pigtails. She was wonderful to work with and customized everything. This party could easily be a Christening party, a Baptism party, a baby shower, a 1st birthday party and more.

Cupcakes purchased from Dippidee.

The beautiful cake was made by Jen of Sweeten Your Day. She is so very talented. I told her how I wanted the cake and she spread her wings. It turned out just how I envisioned it.

The delicious cake bites were ordered from Isabelly's.

Name blocks purchased at Hobby Lobby {I painted them white}.

I ordered cupcake mix favor boxes from Favor Box Bakery. They were absolutely adorable.

Green and blue paper straws available to purchase here.

This gorgeous customized tablecloth was made by Pots And Pins. Nan makes tablecloths to match your party theme. I emailed her my invite and she matched it perfectly. My jaw literally dropped when I opened the package and saw the tablecloth for the first time. Amazing.

I served all the food in gable boxes {available to purchase here} and tied hand stamped wooden utensils onto each box.

The menu consisted of Chicken Salad Croissants, Grapes, Pasta Salad, Fruit Kabobs and Baked Pita Chips. 

I set up the food on a hutch {matching the vintage dresser}.

The kiddies had separate gable boxes. The menu included Peanut Butter Uncrustables,  Mandarine Oranges, Chips and Apple juice.

Yummy key lime truffles ordered from etsy shop, Truffle Kerfuffle.

The darling tie sugar cookies were ordered from etsy shop, Bee's Knees Creative.

Homemade marshmallow squares from Oh Yum.

Cute blue favor boxes from here. {Also available in green.}

Inspiration for these darling cupcake toppers came from here.
