So it's one day before my nephews christening. How do I feel you ask?? Well to start of with I have a strained muscle in my shoulder. I can barely move my arms and neck. What timing is that. But I'm still oh so excited. All the final touches are complete. I just got to wake up early tomorrow and set up the doltone house before the church.
Can't wait......

So this is how it started

Vintage inspired circus themed christening

It all started the moment my sister asked me to be godmother to my beautiful nephew Leon. I had missed out being godmother to her first son Anthony as she had christened him overseas. I was so excited and couldn't help overtaking the organizing of the whole event. My inspiration came when I was scrolling through blissfully sweet cakes website and I stumbled across her amazing circus themed cake which she had previously created for a christening. I informed my sister that she basically had no choice but to have a circus themed christening.

Numerous hours were spent researching and coming up with ideas and inspiration and my final result will be shown to you all after the 6th of November 2011. It is my first attempt at styling an entire event from the basics to the dessert table. I can't wait till the day so that I can show everyone what I've been working towards.

I didn't realise the amount of work that goes into a function as I'd had a simple wedding in Fiji. It was the easiest event to organize as I basically had two choices to pick from 'this cake or this one' etc. Well now I know and I'm ready to share it.
