peter rabbit christening!

i arranged this little peter rabbit table for peter's christening last weekend, i think it all turned out perfectly sweet! nathalie from imprintables made the most gorgeous papery things and i made all of the cute sweets. i think my favourite detail was the hand painted watercolour cookies, i have wanted to make some cookies like this since i first saw some similar ones by nevie pie cakes ages ago on flickr.

  3. Congratulations! Your hand painted watercolor cookies were awesomely crafted. I am taking notes since I will need to plan a christening party for my son for this spring. But first, I need to find the theme of his first birthday.

  12. For the turquoise lemonade, did you start with the lemonade and then add the kool aid until you got the desired color? or vice-versa?

  18. Thanks for posting this, lots of great ideas!

    For those asking about the bottles, they are repurposed/recycled juice bottles: http://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Pear-Nectar-4-2-pack/dp/B000VZNGPU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371757490&sr=8-1&keywords=italian+fruit+nectar
