Floral Vineyard Baptism Celebration
This is what Stefania shared about the event:
“Aria’s baptism was a very special event for us. It was special both because we christened our little girl and because it happened during a difficult and unprecedented summer with the pandemic of Covid-19 overturning our plans.
The Margi Farm was our first choice for a venue to celebrate the baptism of Aria. It’s a farm of 20 acres with vineyards and olive trees that produces vegetables, fruits, olive oil, eggs and much more. It was a friendly place for all the guests, children and adults alike. In addition, our little guests were taken on a tour to the vegetable garden where they gathered their own vegetables and eggs and fed the farm animals. Imagine their enthusiasm!
The baby Christening was held in a picturesque little church, surrounded by countless trees and a small river between them. We decorated the christening area with a beautiful flower garland and some flower arrangements, all in pink. We also had flower crowns for our girls.
For Aria’s special day we wanted something truly elegant and unusual with many beautiful details. Therefore, we chose the blue porcelain style with shades of pink added in to create a romantic, sweet and girly result. Moreover, for our flower arrangements we focused on pink hydrangeas, peonies, tulips, astilbe and garden roses. ‘Flowers everywhere” was our motto.
We decided to create a lemonade stand outside the church in order to welcome and refresh our guests. We couldn’t miss our homemade pink lemonade and watermelon flavored water. Moreover we served rose-flavored loukoumi delights and melekouni, both traditional baby christening treats in Greece! Our guests loved the blue and pink fans and the sprays with natural spring water!
Arriving at the farm, the guests met the welcome table, where they could taste some wine, traditional tsipouro, sparkling water with ginger and lime along with Mediterranean finger foods made by fresh ingredients from the farm. Also there were personalized farmer’s hats for the kids and small baskets to collect vegetables during their tour at the farm.
Blue porcelain vases and pots were the main decorative items we used to give the elegant touch we wanted. The luscious pink flowers added the girly touch! We also added some vases with lemons to create a colour contrast and match the decoration with the farm.
The string lights between the trees and the hanging bubbles with candles and flowers which were hanging from the olive trees, made the atmosphere even more fantastic. The candles played a central part in the dreamy and romantic set up. They were plentiful, and everywhere! The outcome was absolutely stunning!
Additionally, our team created a lounge area with poufs, pillows, sofas and carpets under the trees which the guests really enjoyed during the welcome hour and later when the party started. Hanging flowers were all around the place making the setting even more sweet and romantic.
One of our favourite stands was the one with the gifts for the guests! We decorated it with a great balloon garland with hanging flowers and a banner with a personalized baby’s monogram. Our gift boxes for the adults had an elegant crystal candle and an air freshener. We also had pashminas for the ladies to keep them warm during this lovely evening. Of course we couldn’t miss out the personalized gift boxes for our little guests!
The kids’ area next to the farm was the key at this celebration! The dinner table in a coffee table style with carpets and pillows was a friendly way for the kids to eat and enjoy their dinner. They had plenty of space to play with the animators and they couldn’t hide their excitement about the farm’s animals.
Drinks and Dessert:
Of course we couldn’t miss out our favorite Bully Bar from this special event! Adding a mini van-bar, truly upgrades an event, combining elegance with a vintage touch. The guests fell in love with their amazing cocktails and drinks. The flower garland along the bar was the perfect installment result! Finally, the lemons completed the decoration giving a rustic touch as we were at a farm.
The dessert table was a piece of art! The guests just couldn’t hide their enthusiasm. It’s always our pleasure to decorate our candy bars! We are obsessed with the details and the candy bars allow us to express that. Therefore, we went all out and created the most lavish dessert table with blue porcelain items and pink details. We chose some impressive hand-painted macarons and cake pops, customized butter cookies, some delicious lemon financiers and of course the two-tier cake in blue porcelain style. They were delicious!
Art de la Table:
The table set up was stunning! There was one long table for all the guests with many flower arrangements with pink flowers in blue porcelain pots and porcelain white candle sticks that shone along the table. The art de la table had a sweet and romantic touch with pink ceramic charger plates and dinner plates along with the beautiful white silver cutlery. On top of plates there was placed a blue porcelain gift for its guest with the traditional Greek treat “koufeta.” For the bb plates we decided to add a lemon for each guest.
The fairy lights above the dinner table turned the place into a fairy tale, creating a sky full of stars!
We wish that Aria’s life will always be as shiny as her christening day and her dreams will always be pink!”
