Dimity’s Baby Blessing ~ which they called their BBBQ!
Story by Dimity Sienkiewicz @_dimity_
I saw a few of Dimity’s blissful pre-baby photos on instagram, and followed her journey right up to the birth of her little baby girl. But it was her beyond dreamy baby blessing that caught my eye. For me, putting on an event with this kind of attention to detail seems an impossible task, but for some it comes naturally. The tiny little touches of beauty surrounding her whole blessing, from her hand made invitations, to the delectable treats, to the fruit punch/sangria jars, to the cactus cans… A DIY pinteresters dream! So I wanted to share her story with you here… enjoy! And even if you walk away with one creative idea (I love the framed pressed flower peace sign in the last picture! To do list!) for your next soiree then job done!
Since writing this, Dimity has given birth to her little girl Zaeli Olimpiada ~ I have a feeling this little girl is going to be surrounded by a lot of beauty in her life… sending love to your and your family, Dimity! Thank you for sharing this with us all!
I am going through this amazing journey with my husband by my side and wanted to celebrate it together with all our loved ones. We also wanted to have the BBBQ in our own home; we wanted to show everyone her new nursery and celebrate in the environment that she will grow up in.
I did all the decorations myself and all the amazing ladies in my life made all the delicious food/drinks. My husband Mike is an amazing man and did everything from the BBQ to making flower arrangements! I wanted everything to be homemade with love.
The laser cut teepee invitations that I made for the BBBQ, have been the main inspiration for our little girls nursery styling. As soon as we found out we were having a little girl I knew she would be my little wild flower. Her nursery is a mix of boho, native and vintage elements. It is a soft calming space filled with lots of whites, lace, crochet, dreamcatchers, teepees, mini cactus, feathers, vintage deers and wild flowers. Every element in her nursery has been picked/hand-made with love. I want our little girl to be surrounded with natural colours and textures that I have always been in love with.
Mike and I had an amazing ‘BabyMoon’ in Byron bay a couple months ago and I bought lots of her nursery décor and clothes from local Byron Bay designers.
• Crochet lamp from Shikoba
• Crochet cushions/dream catcher/Aztec rug/bull cushion from Spell.
• Lace cushion/feathers from Hope & May
• Porcelain Deer knobs from Liberty Trading Co (next door to Spell)
• Lots of beautiful toys/clothes from local designs: Children of the Tribe, Arnhem, Bandikoot Byron, Nami etc
I seriously cant get over the fact that there is a little baby girl growing inside my belly and that we will get to hold her so very soon! From the first day we found out I was pregnant we have been so excited. Not a day goes by that we do not think about our little girl and imagine how amazing our lives are going to be as a family. I absolutely love being pregnant and watching my belly grow. The best part of my pregnancy has been the look in my husbands eyes – I never thought that it was possible to feel any more loved by him but every day that we get closer to holding out little girl, I feel that love grow.
