I am a child of God John 1:12
On November 5th, 2017, Selena Jade was baptized. It was a beautiful day that was celebrated with friends and family.
After the ceremony, we held a dinner at a room we rented out on base. A lot of the decor/dessert table was DIY. Since I love sticking to color schemes, I decided on using shades of silver, pink, & white.
I made the center pieces for the tables. They were super easy to put together and very affordable! The flowers were purchased from Trader Joe’s the day before the party. Luckily, they had just the type of flowers I was looking for. The vase was from the 99 Cents store and was decorated with white ribbon and tulle. To keep the flowers looking fresh, I trimmed them, put them in water (with the nutrient pack they come with) and kept them in the refrigerator overnight.
I made white chocolate covered Oreos. Yum!
Chocolate covered pretzels topped with editable glitter powder. Glitter you can eat is the best invention EVER. Warning- It may make you poop glitter (ha, I really have no idea..yet..). The best way to apply the glitter onto the pretzels is using a paint brush (once the chocolate hardens).
For the favors, I gave out homemade rose soaps from Etsy, rosary beads (that also smell like roses), & Jordan almonds.
Let me know what you think of my baptism decor! ❤
When planning out how I would design Selena’s nursery, I had no idea what I wanted to do. All I knew was that I wanted the color scheme to be white, pink, and gold. After researching ideas on the internet, I decided I wanted to go for a shabby chic look. I’m really happy with how everything turned out and how inexpensive it was. Let me know what you think!
Distressed Mirror from hobby lobby. Perfect for that shabby chic look.

I made this floral letter for my daughter’s nursery. It adds an elegant touch to a room and is super easy to make!
Things you need:
- Fake Flowers- I found It’s usually cheaper to buy a bouquet along with a few individual flowers to add a variety of color. From my experience, individual flowers tend to be pricey compared to bouquets.
- Glue gun and Glue sticks– For gluing the flowers to the wood. I’m sure other types of glue would work great but at least with a glue gun you can usually peel off the glue if you mess up.
- Wooden letter- I bought mine from hobby lobby. These are great because they already have a drilled keyholes for hanging. Get yours here.
Step 1- Gather your flowers. It’s easy to pull the flowers from the stems by hand. If needed, you may want to cut off the excess plastic on the stem so that the flower lays flat on the wood.
Step 2- Before gluing the flowers onto the wood, plan out how you want to organize them. I suggest placing the flowers onto wood as if they were glued and then take a picture of it. That way you can use the picture as a guide for when you are ready to start gluing!
Step 3- Glue the flowers on the wood. If there are any spots in between the flowers you can use any extra flower pedals to fill in the spaces.
Step 4- Hang it up!
