- A peony is the perfect flower for the Scarlett! The richly embroidered lace used for Scarlett is an all over floral and vine design, and a peony is very similar to the floral design. Peonies are commonly found in shades of pink, so it would be easy to match the blushed pink color of the Scarlett. I love the image of the two peonies in the small glass vase. It is the perfect compliment to the Scarlett Gown! While I love intricate centerpieces made from a mix of multiple flowers, simple is often the better option. The Scarlett Gown is so detailed, I think a smaller vase with only two or three flowers is perfect. Roses and carnations would also work well with the Scarlett Gown.
- Having a dessert table is an easy display to coordinate and fun for your guests, young and old, to indulge in! For the Scarlett, I picture desserts that you would find at a tea party, such as shortbread cookies, tea cookies, meringue kisses and madeleines. I think the petite size of these desserts are so elegant. Macarons, like the light pink ones pictured above, are the perfect addition as well! Originating in France, macarons are a delicious cream filled cookie that is smaller in size. Macarons are growing in popularity and a perfect dessert for a baptism! They are made in a variety of colors and flavors, so it would be easy to find a color that would work well with your baptism event.
- Tissue pom-poms are such a simple decoration to add to your celebration! They are actually quite easy to create yourself, or you can purchase a kit (I found many available on Etsy) or pre-made pom-poms as well. You can make them small or large in size, so they are quite helpful to fill an empty space that needs a pop of color. Plus, tissue paper is available in every color and pattern possible, so it would be easy to match up the color to your theme. I love the rounded edges and soft pink color of the tissue pom-pom pictured above.
- When I was shopping at a local antique store, I noticed a set of antique silverware and thought it would be such a lovely touch to add to a christening party! Although you may not be able to purchase a complete set, they would be nice to use as your serving utensils or dessert silverware.
