Where are all my Fall loving ladies ? We had been to the pumpkin patch today and I loved to come back. We are visiting the same one every year. I think this might be the fourth year in a row and it is still awesome. So many great pumpkins and so much fun to harvest them by ourselves plus it was Emilias first year where she could actually walk through the patch on her own and of course she also picked some little pumpkins on her own.
But of course this isn´t everything that is on our Fall Bucket List. Below I am sharing all the things we are trying to get done ´til the end of the season. Do you guys have anything fun planned ?
are you already shopping for your Christmas gifts ? I am half way through and happy about what I got so far. It is one of the biggest sales day of the year today but to be honest I haven´t ordered anything. I was organizing and cleaning the whole day because we have got our new sofa.
I have created sales guides the last few years but to be honest it is a lot of work to do so and having a baby at home isn´t giving you more time but I wanted to share one great deal with you.
Ordering new Christmas pj´s every year has become a tradtition in our house and to be honest I find the cutest ones at PatPat plus they always offer parents and kids sizes and sometimes even pieces for dogs.
We went with the burgundy and reindeer option for this years Christmas pj´s and to be honest I love them. The plaid is really pretty and a nice change since we had stripes and string lights the last few years.
This really gets me in the Christmas spirit and I definitely need a ton of it this year. Make sure to check back next week for a ton of Christmas related posts.
I am finally coming around of sharing the details of Emilia´s baptism two weeks ago. This was such an emotinal and exciting day (rather for me than for her) and so nice to spend it with family although there were still some restrictions due to stupid Covid.
Church hasn´t been a problem since we only were a small group of people but for our at home celebration we sadly had to reduce so only our parents and the godparent of Emilia have attended. All of the others got a big slice of cake to-go. We decided whether to change the date or not but I wanted to finally “get over with it” cause we alreay had the candle and the cake ordered and her clothes would not fit in a few months.
Hopefully there won´t be many restrictions around her first birthday so we can have a big celebration.
Anyways let´s talk about the cake table I set up. I loved loved loved how it turned out. I definitely wanted to do something special for her blessing and I think the table turned out great.
First of all I started with the sequin blankets I also used for the gift table and candy bar at our wedding. I got them from etsy and they are huge and heavy and made of great quality. The other highlight on the table was the fir garland. I ordered it for the whole length of the table and added tiny twinkle lights and it just looked stunning.
The cake of course was the show stopper of the table. The cutest 2-tier cake I have seen in a while and it was really tasty too. The pink petit-fours had the symbols of the baptism candle painted on top.
To the left and right I added candle holders, tea lights, a cute picture in a beautiful frame as well as forks, spoons, napkins and plates.
Our theme has been pink and white with lots of golden accents. I personally loved it a lot and this was so much fun I am already looking forward to plan her first birthday.
I am finally coming around posting our “newborn” pictures on the blog. They turned into a little family shoot and I think they are all adorable especially the ones with our precious baby.
If you have followed my story a little bit you might know that my whole photo session plan went wrong. I wanted to have the first shoot 24 after birth in the hospital but due to the Coronavirus no visitor where allowed and so no photos could have been taken. It was the same drama with the newborn photos as we all have been on lockdown and no one could visit but here we are. We finally got beautiful pictures of our baby girl.
She has the sweetest little personality and is always smiling at people. I am so in love with her and still can´t believe that she is all mine and I can keep her. She will be 3 months on Saturday and time has really flown by. We have settled into our new routine and are pretty comfortable with how things work over here now. I am going to share her 3 months update next week.
Coordinating our looks has been so much fun and I love to find matching pieces for family photo shoots. I already wrote about it in a post, you can read about it here.
