Kourtney's Baptism

On May 28th our little angel was baptized at San Gabriel Mission. The mission is so special to our family; her big sister was also baptized there, her daddy and I were married there 6 years ago, and I attended San Gabriel Mission High. After the ceremony, we celebrated at a local banquet facility in a beautiful open room that overlooked a golf course. Not to mention, we had the most delicious waffle station and dessert table! It was a perfect day filled with lots of love for our little Kourtney with all our family and friends.

I am such a sentimental schmuck and love to save, or hoard, whatever you want to call it, everything! Kourtney wore the same, handmade dress that her sister wore on her baptism. I have this vision of every daughter of mine wearing this dress and maybe even seeing my future granddaughters in it as well. It's just such a beautiful dress!

I find any reason to DIY and a special event is always the perfect excuse! Birthdays, holidays and family get togethers are so much more personal when there are handmade details present. For Kourtney's baptism I wanted to go with an angel theme, which may explain why everything is white! I made everything from the invitations to the chocolate drizzled pretzels sticks. The rosette table linen was probably my favorite detail!
