This past Sunday we celebrated Asher’s baptism. I decided to go with a bit of a Southern theme and we hosted a backyard BBQ afterwards for all of our guests.
I got Asher the sweetest outfit for his big day and went with a monogrammed bubble.
The mass was really nice and the deacon made sure to include Hudson in everything which worked out great. He loves helping!
Afterwards we headed to our house for the BBQ. We switch up the outdoor sectional and used the second set of cushion covers and then also reversed the outdoor rug.
The dining tables were dressed up in these preppy plaid tableclothes.
The centerpieces were colorful floral arrangements in orange beach pails complete with bandanas. I used a mix of coral peonies, blue hydrangeas, magenta carnations and orange spray roses.

I ordered in BBQ goodies and lunch consisted of BBQ ribs, brisket, mac and cheese, potato salad and corn bread. The biggest hit though was my chip bar. I purchased large glass jars and filled them with original, bbq and pita chips complete with mini paper bags and scoops.
I also tired to be as eco friendly as I could and reduce waste by using melamine plates and wooden utensils.
Fun was had by all. Hudson had a blast with all of his friends and I barely saw him. He didn’t want to be with mom when there were kids around. Asher spent most of his party in the pool and then passed out for the remaining party.
A big thanks to my friend Liz from Elizabeth Kristin Photographyfor taking photos of the BBQ bash for me. We love you, Lizzie!
