all that glitters

It’s that time again: Another event for one of my boys and my party-planning obsessing is in full gear. I live for the pouring over of every detail, getting inspired and the giddiness that takes over when I find brilliant little moments of perfection online that ultimately come together for something I hope they’ll love.

This time it’s my baby’s Blessing. We opted to do a dedication vs. a traditional baptism with my littlest man. We’re hosting it in our home, in our backyard, and we’re keeping it intimate and very personal. Of course, that doesn’t mean I can’t plan every last detail like it’s a $50,000 wedding (on a $1,500 budget).

These are just a few of the drool-worthy details I’ve found online and will be incorporating (in two very, very short weeks):

Glittery, gorgeous circle garland. I can't love this enough. Perfect to hand paper pom-poms and other decor.Via robayre on Etsy.

I love a good Pom Pom. This idea is perfect to decorate the back where we’re hosting the dedication. I typically do them myself, but this time around I’m trying to be smarter about overcommitting to DIY projects with two weeks left. I love the color selections and options in this Etsy store. Via PomsAndCircumstance on Etsy











Ceramic individual cupcake stands via Farmhouse Wares. Brilliant!


I adore these precious candles with personalized tags via Kgrainger on Great for decor and as gifts for Godparents, grandparents.
