A Vintage Lavender Baptism Picnic . . .

It is not often we run across a baby baptism that is put together as beautifully as this one; a gorgeous day, brought to us via On to Baby, and one for the record books...perfect for late summer or fall and simply breathtaking.

To celebrate her daughter Rylie's baptism, Cassidy Freitas dreamed up a stunning vintage picnic-themed reception in gold and white.  What happened next was an unforgettable event that was pure & sweet...just like the new baby girl!  Take a look . . .

Old family baby photos were displayed above a vintage pink typewriter, provided for guests to write wishes, prayers, or blessings to the sweet baby girl.  And I am loving those delightful mini-pies and the rustic details mixed with elegant lace . . .

The dessert table was topped with classic picnic baskets and filled with picnic-inspired treats, like lavender madeleines and apple pies “a la bow” . . .

Freshly squeezed lavender lemonade . . .

And the lovely little family, ready to celebrate!
