Christos’ Baptism

Christos’ Baptism

Prototype baptism with a vintage race cars inspired theme

Little Christos got baptized in Rethymno, enjoying every minute of his day, together with his parents, relatives and friends! Vintage race cars, white balloons everywhere, field flowers and unique treats were only a few of the surprises this night held.

The religious mystery took place at the Holy Church of Saint Nicholas, right on top of the sea foam, decorated in white balloons, as well as in floral arrangements in blue tones where field flowers prevailed. An old tricycle placed at the outdoor area, serving lemonade for our little friends and rose prosecco for the adults, took off the beautiful scenery.

The little protagonist of the day dressed up and led the guests to a unique venue where they celebrated all together! This young guy, bewitched by race cars, was the inspiration for the styling decoration that looked both child-like and chic at the same time.

The reception took place at the villa complex of ArboraOlea Resorts, which is surrounded by an olive grove, and gave the guests a sense of tradition, hospitality, and luxury, as they enjoyed the most special delicacies. The tables were set between the olive trees, the menu was traditional with a modern touch, the elegant taste united modern with traditional. Traditional cocktails and finger food accompanied the guests’ welcome; all inspired by the cook who was asked to present a menu that was modern and traditional at the same time!

NMevents team was there, closely watching the preparations and offering their experience in every detail. Organizing an event at a fresh new location is always a challenge for us, as it is our aim to set the level higher and higher!

‘Underwater’ Baptism in Cretan Monastery

How can the bottom of the ocean be found in the yard of a thousand year old Cretan monastery? Well, Roula Moniaki, an accomplished professional photographer, together with our expert decoration team, made it happen in the baptism of her lovely baby boy!

Starfish, octopus, jelly fish, crabs, whales, algae, the whole sea world came alive in the yard of Arkadi Monastery. The Monastery carries a long and important history, and is famous for its special Venetian architecture. This is where young Nireas was baptized in a gorgeous ocean themed decoration.

Outside the church a welcome table was set, where guests could drink iced water and juice. The sweets and candy offered to the guests were all ocean themed. Handmade cookies painted with sugar paste as sea creatures gave a playful tone to the decoration. A deep blue sea style was given to the delicious cake pops, the muffins and the cake. Pampas grass and algae had a special ‘underwater’ feeling.

The same style was given to the handmade stuffed sea creature toys that decorated the table and the baptism font. The guest favors were also tailor made, with fabric bags and fabric fish hanging on them, stuffed with local products and goodies.And of course, the baptism candle was astounding!

What an elegant and playful baptism!
