Baptism BBQ

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).

Sleek Baptism & Christening Announcements

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.

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!
