We recently celebrated king Henry’s baptism. It was a special day for our little guy, but I wanted to keep it casual. After the baptism ceremony our family came back to our house for a BBQ.
The theme was simple white and baby blue, inspired by the invitations we chose from Minted (sample below).
I didn’t do much in terms of decorating since the party was outside. Simple baby blue tablecloths, a blue hydrangea and white hyacinth centerpiece and a blue and white styled dessert table brought the theme to life.
For the menu, I kept it to the standard BBQ menu. This is a tried and true menu for a summer BBQ.
Avocado and corn salad served with tortilla and pita chips
Orzo caprese salad
Spinach & strawberry salad
Assortment of cookies
Rice Krispie treats
Oh Henry! chocolate bars (my favorite touch to the party)
I will be sharing a few recipes from the menu over the next few weeks. The party was a success and of course we were left with so many left overs!
