PARTY by WH HOSTESS | BABY BOY BAPTISM

DSC_0994My sweet baby boy was baptized in February, and I created a crisp blue, white and chartreuse green dessert table to celebrate the occasion.  I created a new collection of baptism & christening party invitations to be part of our new BABY by WH HOSTESS collection, and invited our guests with a crisp blue & white stripe invitation.  For the party goods, I decided to run with the blue & white theme, but add in a touch of chartreuse green for a pop of Spring.  (with a foot of snow on the ground, it was nice to have something that looked fresh!)  I used the paper goods from our new Baby Safari Baby Shower collection, swapping out the animals for a cross on some items.
