Last year, my family vacationed in Portugal, Spain, and France to visit extended family and take pleasure in the culture.  Thus this European-Inspired Baptism was motivated by our enjoyment of the delectable desserts we savored and the simple, yet stylish atmosphere we experienced.  It was a dual baptism for my son and neice, for whom I am honored to be a Godmother for.  The neutral color scheme consisted of gold, champagne and white hues; it coordinated well with the venue’s warm yellow tones.

I come from a family of “foodies,” thus the focal point of the room became the dessert table. Some European-inspired desserts included the ever-so-popular Pasteis de Nata, a Portuguese crème pastry that melts in your mouth, and Mille Figlio, what the Americans know as “The Italian Napoleon.”    Also included were French Macarons and Meringues, and Ferrero Roche chocolates.  Kid and adult favorites, such as Snickers, chocolate covered Oreos, grapefruit/pineapple gummies, chocolate caramel and pretzels rounded out the display.  Each guest was given a gold tote to take some home as an additional favor.

The libations table included Grandma’s homemade Sangria, which always proves to be a success, as well as red and white wines from France. 

A scroll pattern and a chic cursive font were used for the labels.  The flower centerpiece stayed true to the European tablescape simplicity, as they were Pellegrino and wine bottles spray painted gold and champagne showcasing white hydrangeas with baby’s breath.  Champagne pintuck runners were used atop the tables.
