We had a beautiful baby blessing.
I didn’t get any pictures of the actual ceremony because I wanted to focus on the moment, but I got some of the details, so I’ll share those with you.
I’m used to doing indoor rituals on the floor. I don’t know why. I guess because I was solitary for so many years, and I did outdoor rituals sitting on the ground. So I wanted to create this Moroccan-inspired vibe, with the pillows and the lanterns on the floor.
I gave away blessing salts as favors, which were really easy but they smell amazing and people are always happy to get them.
I want you all to know that I DID try to bake for this event. It . . . did not work out. So. Store bought cupcakes for Cakes and Ale.
But! I did add this charming little touch with the birth date on it.
I usually substitute for the “ale” part of cakes and ale. Champagne, wine, mead, sparkling cider. I don’t think I’ve ever actually served real ale, but this time, I wanted the authentic deal.
So there you have it. Blessed be!
