Christmas Party Ideas
Christmas always comes with a pervading atmosphere of cheer, positive energy, and a sense of goodwill and hope. Giorgia’s family welcomed her to the Christian world with a Christmas-themed baptismal celebration that will instantly warm your heart. And indeed, what a jolly good time they had, thanks to the fecund creativity of Bespoke Manila who magically created a cozy Christmas fête for Giorgia.
As this most anticipated time of the year is just around the corner, be sure to scroll down for a dose of inspiration!
Surrounded by her loving family and friends, Giorgia received the Holy Spirit in the sacrament of faith. With her eyes so bright, and a sweet smile on her face, she happily welcomed the priest’s blessings. Photographs from this all-important event are a must, so here is the little angel, pretty in her white lacy baptismal gown with her mom, dad and godparents.
Nothing can be more “Christmas-y” than Giorgia’s invites printed on shimmering red cards with a pattern of silver snowflakes.
All eyes were drawn to the party backdrop that evoked a rustic Christmas cottage feel. On the wall are Christmas tapestry and a wooden loom board décor; chandelier wall sconces add a dramatic effect. Tall Christmas trees all lit up with fairy lights flank a barrel on which Giorgia’s amazing dessert spread.
Guests indulged in happy conversations and enjoyed their sumptuous meal on tables draped in flowing white cloth. A long burlap runner added a very rustic-chic vibe. Using the colors of Christmas, each table was adorned with lush red roses and daisies arranged in a wooden box. A tabletop Christmas tree, prettily decorated with sparkly red and green Christmas balls and dainty red and white ribbons completed the festive centerpiece.
Here’s a cake that will brighten up the day and paint big smiles on the little ones’ faces! It’s covered in red fondant with white chocolate ganache drip. A delicious bunch of sugary treats make the perfect Christmas décor for this oh, so delightful cake – a gingerbread man wearing a red bow, meringue lollipops, peppermint candy canes, mint chocolate kisses and shards of chocolate. Gorgeous!
Along with the wonderful cake, an array of irresistible sweet treats enticed every sweet tooth at the party. There were sugar cookies in the shape of cute Christmas stockings, snow globe cupcakes with a fondant snowman inside a sugar dome (wow!), Christmas ball cake pops painted with glittery luster dust, and popcorn served in red and white mugs. The children also enjoyed drinking fresh milk served in vintage style glass bottles that were prettified with striped and checkered red and white ribbons. This dessert spread is enough to bring you to 7th heaven.
For food lovers, the appetizers are what they most look forward to at the party. Giorgia’s guests relished a gourmet adventure in the lavish grazing spread laid out for them. The feasting table by Rinfreschi included a variety of cheeses, charcuterie , fruits and tasty finger-foods. Delish!
A pocket-size prayer card and key chain in sheer organza drawstring pouches are special tokens that Giorgia gifted her godparents. What’s more, guests could continue the feast at home with a graze box that included croissant, some prosciutto, biscuits and a pack of the crispy-light, Swiss quality Kägi wafers.
Any opportunity to bring family and friends together is always a happy occasion. Here we see how guests shared the joy with Giorgia’s parents and celebrated her baptism. As the VIP of the day, Giorgia shows off her fashion with several dress changes from her long, lacy baptismal gown to a white dress embroidered with red flowers and a pretty, fluffy red dress with matching red bow headband.
Giorgia’s family is a picture of family love. With the gift of faith and her parents’ to guide her, may she grow in confidence.
