This beautiful PAPER BOAT CHRISTENING PARTY was submitted by Alina Bendeli of Alina Bendeli Design & Photography.
This christening party is so cute! I love the paper boat theme. It’s such a unique but fun take on a traditional nautical theme. There are so many darling ideas in this party that would be great for a nautical birthday party, boat party, or a boat themed christening or baby blessing celebration.
My favorite Paper Boat party ideas and elements from this lovely Christening Party are:
- The cute paper boats made out of the invitation
- The beautiful blue cake
- The tea lights in glass jars with sand
- The cute boat cupcakes
- The fun hanging boats
- The light blue macarons
- and MORE!
This is what Alina said about planning the party- “I wanted something a little different from the standard “Nautical” theme for my Son’s christening. Something Stylish and simple but with a vintage twist… for an intimate family Christening held at home. So I went for a “paper boat” theme, using old book pages for the boats in the bonboniere and on the table, and actually sending out pop open origami paper boats as the invitations, complete with little personalised flags and anchor charms on cotton twine. The use of the different shades of aqua made it the perfect colours for the February date we chose and also for a baby boy. I suspended cut out white clouds and aqua pompoms from the ceiling above the table to look like a bright sky over the sea. Other little touches that helped complete the theme… using life savers on cupcakes and mixed in with the aqua almonds in the bonbonierie, blue jelly with white “sea foam” sprinkled on top, thick cotton twine tied in knots around vases, curtains etc, sand poured in jars creating candle holders, and even a little message in a bottle! I went for simple small bunches of white flowers as it was for a little boy.”
