My Baby Nephews Christening – Sunshine, Cake & Personalised Gift ♥

Here’s a more personal post compared to my usual shopping hauls and bargain hunting blog posts. At the beginning of June it was my little nephew Joseph’s Christening. It was held at our local village church, which is so beautiful and old, and luckily the sun shone down all day. After the church service, we went to the venue we had hired for a buffet lunch and drinks. Yummy cheese, olives, and pizza! Baby Joseph is now 9 months old and is my sisters son, and I also have a little 9 year old niece; Lara. 
As a gift, I created the cake for the party, which included a little 6″ round cake with Joseph George William on it, and then 50 cupcakes with little baby blue decorations on, and 20 fairy cakes for the kids. They went down a storm! 
I also gave Joseph a cute little money box from Find Me A Gift. It is personalised with his name and Christening date, and says Love From Auntie Vikki on the back. I love personalised presents! I thought this would be a perfect gift for a baby, as his parents can add their spare change into the money box and then add it to his savings fund. It will also match perfectly with his lovely little nursery room, and I especially liked the cute bunting and train design! I like this as a gift idea for a baby as I hope that it will be something that stays sat on his windowsill throughout his childhood, and as it is ceramic it should last for many years to come.
Here’s some photos from the day. I will be doing an outfit of the day post soon! Bless my sister, I’m in flats and she’s in little heels and she looks so petite! We took so many lovely family photos, it’s always nice when everyone gets together all dressed up!
My sister, Dad, Mum, and Me.

    Joseph is so cute! 🙂 Your style is very minimalist, yet actually easy and stylish. I feel like it's very easy to translate to my own closet.
