Kara's Party Ideas 'Bee Baptized' Baptism Luncheon {Succulent Accents}


I’m excited to share my son, Gavin’s, ‘Bee Baptized’ Baptism Luncheon Party that I recently styled! This day was so special for our family, as being baptized into our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is something that is so important to us. My son decided to follow his Savior by being baptized and making sacred covenants with his Heavenly Father. Following the baptism we had many family and friends over for a luncheon to continue to celebrate Gavin and his special day.

I wanted the party to be masculine, yet delicate and beautiful at the same time. Of course, I incorporated bumble bees because Gavin chose to “Bee” baptized :). Then, I added succulents and mint green to the spread to create a woodsy, rustic feel. I love how it all came together!

Some of my favorite elements from this ‘bee baptized’ baptism luncheon include:

  • Mini 3-tiered succulent-topped cakes
  • Beehive cookies
  • Succulent cake
  • Large moss alphabet letter G
  • Baptism boy peg doll cupcake + cake toppers
  • Drink table with lemons and sage
  • Honey jar drinking glasses
  • Bee stamped tags
  • Honey sticks
  • Cornbread and honey take home party favors
