Simplistic beauty was the goal for such an important event for this sweet little girl. Lush greenery garlands embellished the chapel's structure, and for the reception we wanted it to be kid friendly while not taking away from the overall beauty of the refectory. We kept the organic palette going with the white and pops of sage for the entertainment area as well as the kids place settings. To make sure decor embellished the existing details of the space we added crisp white balloons with attached greenery as a garland and had the sweet baby's name spelled in balloons for all to see. During the reception of the christening guests enjoyed passed brunch options along with morning cocktails as the kids received face painting and enjoyed music from Bradley True, and a fun magic show. Since the meaning of name Paloma is dove, we tied in the favors and each guest went home with a dove shape cookie with Paloma written on it to symbolize the purity of this occassion as well as the precious girl.
