Elaina's Baptism--A Mint & Pink Spring Luncheon

Happy Hump Day, friends!    It's been quite awhile since I last posted *eeeek!*

I thought today I would share some pictures of Elaina's Baptism Party, which was this past Sunday.  The Baptisms at our church are typically done after the last Mass on Sunday mornings, so we did an early afternoon lunch of soups and salad.   We chose to make French Onion soup, chili, and the Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana soup, with an Olive Garden-esque salad, fruit, bread, and cake.  

I knew that I wanted to keep the decorations simple, but classy.   Ever since E was first born, my mom has always said that she looks so nice in a mint green color, so I knew I wanted to incorporate that into the decor somehow.   I chose mint and pink to be the primary colors for the tablescape and also included a salmon color in some of the decorations.   Since we are getting close to springtime, fresh flowers from our local Kroger were used in the centerpieces--I just walked into the floral department on Friday and picked flowers that fit the color scheme.   I think they turned out so pretty!   

Here are some photos from the party!    I'll link whatever products I can at the bottom!

I found the banner on Pinterest, which took me to the Soho Sonnet Blog, so I printed it out and strung twine through it.

I found the paper fans from Just Artifacts and used the Eyelet Tissue Fans in the colors Tickled Pink, Salmon, Mint, and Ivory.   They shipped very fast and the fans (and everything else on their website) were extremely affordable!   I would definitely order again from them for party decor!

I hope you all have an excellent week!   Thanks for stopping by!!
