Real Parties: A Christening & Adoption Celebration

I have a very special party to share with you. I know you will LOVE the gorgeous, girly details which will hopefully serve as inspiration. This particular event was held to celebrate the Christening and adoption finalization of a sweet baby girl whose parents went through a long journey to get her here.
Angel wings were found throughout the party since that is what they call their daughter.













As an adopted child myself, my friend's story and this party touches my heart. What a blessed little girl to be brought into this world and put into the hands of two loving and deserving parents! I feel the same way about my parents.

On the invitation, was a poem which read...

Today I kissed an angel. I knew it from the start.
The first time my angel smiled at me, I gave away my heart.

Today I kissed an angel, this angel child of mine.
Though not of my creation, my child by God's design.

Today I kissed an angel, my heart is dancing wild.
A family, by a miracle, blessed by this angel child.
