{Real Parties}: Olivia's Christening Celebration

To celebrate the Christening and adoption finalization of their second baby girl, my friend Christine and her husband hosted the most fabulous Sunday brunch. {You may remember the gorgeous photos from the Christening celebration of their first adopted daughter}. As I have mentioned before, Christine is the owner of a chic wedding and event planning business here in Houston. So, it is no wonder that her parties are stunning.










Both of the Christening and adoption celebration invitations were amazing and designed by my talented friend, Hayley Hardcastle. Each invitation included a sentimental quote that brought tears to my eyes...


Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone, but miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart, but in it.

~ Fleur Conkling Heylinger ~

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.

Events in Bloom created all of the decor and the amazing Leslie Gaworecki of Goodlight Photography, captured all of the lovely photos.

I am in LOVE with that cake. At first I thought it was a single tiered cake then looked closer and it's TWO tiers. So adorable. The whole celebration was stunning!
