We first communicated with Emily, George’s mother, only two weeks before the baptism. With Greek roots and having lived in Greece during her childhood but currently living in the U.S., she was dreaming of a baptism with the colors of Greece that would bring into mind memories of Greek summer, sea and feelgood moments.
-‘I haven’t got a theme in my mind, I just love turquoise and I’m mainly interested in an elegant outcome’ said Emily on our first contact. Discussing about her flower preferences and presenting her several ideas to meet her aesthetics, we ended up in a set up that combined both the open air garden by the sea for the dinner as well as the inner space for the cocktail hour and the party.
For the tables we decided on white flowers in a triple arrangement, adorned napkins with ribbons and flowers, table cards with city names from around the world honoring the guests (from Palm Beach, Tampa, Athens & Jeddah!) and lots of white candles. We added color by decorating the chairs with turquoise fabric bows and we created a minimal but impressive wish table with chocolate almonds, flowers, candles and the baby boy’s initials. The reception area was decorated with attention in every detail, always keeping the color palette of white & turquoise, with curtains of lots of long ribbons, airy fabrics hanging from the ceiling, high stools, lounge areas and endless candles that added sparkle to the event. So that everything would bring into mind children dreams sailing cheerfully over the blue of the horizon, blowing their sails with the hope and light of another wonderful Greek sunset…
