On May 5th our precious granddaughter Olivia Brooke was blessed by her family and friends.
This is Brian her daddy, Minyele her mommy and our dear friend Norma.
Norma lead our prayers, poems and good wishes for our Lil O
When our blessing ceremony was over everyone blew bubbles for Olivia and for each other.
We feared rain but the sun shined brightly for our special day.
Following the blessing we had a luncheon.
Using a few of our special creations from the baby shower (you can see that post here)
I saved the pink and magenta painted acorns from the baby shower and used them in the bottom of this large jar.
Different size ball jars and antique bottles were filled with spring flowers and tiny pink roses.
(Olivia's other grandmother created all the flower arrangements, thanks Mary)
Everything was so pretty, this was the theme her mommy wanted for the blessing.
We used silverware with roses from our local church and miss matched china plates (all flowers) were purchased from local Goodwill and Salvation Army stores.
Some special touches like ribbons around the ball jar drinking glasses I got my inspiration from Pinterest.

Olivia's mommy wanted to have a tree for Olivia with everyone putting their fingerprint somewhere on the tree.
The tree was drawn by her daddy
Using paper lace doily's I created cones for our sweet potato chips.
Pretty for Olivia...
I found these resin baby shoes at Creative Habitat.
Our special day was more than we could of imagined.
When Olivia's family gets together there is such love and happiness it would make any gathering/celebration more special than the next.
We are are TRULY BLESSED!
Thanks for stopping by.
