Baby Sarah Velasco’s Dreamy Floral Fête – Baptismal

Dreamy Secret Garden Themed Party


Baptism is a milestone that every parent looks forward to for their child. Choosing the right details is crucial to ensure that the ceremony will be pleasant yet solemn. For Sara’s christening, Party Station oversaw the conceptualization and full planning while Gary Mindworks made sure every detail was perfect. They collaborated with Party Doll Manila Events for the management of the big day. Nice Print Photography & Exige Weddings beautifully captured every enchanting moment of this gorgeous celebration.

Can somebody pinch me to make sure I’m not dreaming? I think I just traveled to a far away place inside a fairy tale dreamland! The gorgeous styling by the magic hands of Mr. Gary Dacanay of Gary Dacanay Event Styling turned the place into a floral fantasy. White fluffy carpet, pink roses, candelabras and frosted mesh with fairy lights in the background are all part of a lavish welcome tunnel to welcome the guests.


At the end of the entryway is the passage to the ceremony area that was embellished with dangling hydrangeas. The highest leader of the Republic of the Philippines, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was present as Sara’s principal sponsor together with a powerhouse set of godmothers and godfathers.


Everybody was captivated by Sara’s photowall as guests lined up to have their snaps captured in this little nook.


A jaw-dropping setup enchanted every guest as they entered the grand ballroom of Makati Shangri-La Hotel. The ceiling blossomed with all shades of blushing hanging flowers. They were matched with elegant chandeliers for a picture-perfect sight. A view of the stage can be seen from the dazzling walkway between the long tables.

The main table features a gorgeous glass table fit for a princess party. I love how the mirror reflects the décor above for a whimsical effect. Overflowing with lovely blooms, personalized carnation pink charger plates and gold cutlery sets were especially prepared for the VIP’s.

With glass candle holders, morning glories and lilies, the sponsors’ tables were equally beaming with finesse. The same flushed hues wrapped around each of them and the ornaments atop were sure to charm Sara’s godparents.

Astonishing is probably an understatement in describing this 10-tier cake by Ms Aileen of Honey Glaze Cakes. Every layer were meticulously designed to perfection! This majestic cake is even taller than I am!


The night’s entertainment was brought by some of the most talented singers in the country. Ms. Aicelle Santos opened the show and started the party with her top-notch set. Ms. Gerphil Flores serenaded the crowd with some classical music. She was followed by Mr. Jed Madela, an award winning OPM singer. To finally bring the show to the fullest, the Asia’s nightingale, Ms. Lani Misalucha wowed everyone with her powerful singing voice.


The giveaways were luxurious sets of Jo Malone pieces. I’m pretty sure every guest was delighted to receive one.


Here is baby Sara showing off her angelic looks that she got from her mom and dad. Welcome to the Christian world, little bub! Keep shinning!
