A sea baptism in Athens, Greece

This christening in the sea at Reef Athens Riviera astounded us with its simplicity and whole lot different feeling of being out in the nature.

Instead of a baptismal font, a flower wreath was prepared and placed in the ocean and how little Jorgos Erich was baptized in the Athenian waters.
Christening at Reef Athens Riviera
Reef Athens is one of the rare venues in Athens that your guests can literally step foot on the sand. Moreover, this is one of the reasons that the parents chose this venue since they could also realize their other goal, that of a christening in the sea instead of one in a chapel. The venue also combines a much laid-back atmosphere with the furniture and simple lines. Reef Athens Riviera, is a modern estate, of high aesthetics, with soft earthly colours and appealing green along with an intense aroma of the Aegean Islands and the winding strands of the Attica Peninsula. It is one of the most magical places of the city’s shores, located in the Athenian Riviera at the 35th kilometre of Athinon-Souniou Avenue.
Indian Themed Christening

Greatest compliment of all is when we have clients that are repeaters. This is also the case here since we already have designed before this christening for their first child. It is much easier to work with them and of course, we are more aware of the outcome they want. So now that the family grew bigger, the mother -and artistic mind of the family- wanted to use this time as a central theme the little elephant and work on Indian mandala patterns. Love Me Do designed the invitations and consequently, all different creative aspects of this christening such as favours, table numbers, seating cards and many many more.

Use of bold colours in your sea baptism
Based on our multicolour invitation we chose two main colours (blue and orange) like the two different envelopes of the invitations and we created long balloon garlands with same colours on our dessert table. Little cut-out elephants and of course delicious desserts completed our vision of a lush dessert table. Floral garlands on the tables in matching colours of blue hydrangeas, orange gerberas and pampass grass in assorted colors with our napkins and favours, revealed a vibrant look we were so eagerly working on. In the end of the two long tables, we had a big “Namaste” sign ornamented with a big balloon garland to give out more of this Indian chilled vibes.
Hiring a live band for your event

When organizing an event and a gathering it is always about the party, too. Consequently, the dancefloor area had also to include elements of design of our theme. We created 30sq. meters of tassels with our colour palette’s scheme so to have a party effect above the dance floor that was beautiful in the day with the multicolour tassels and very impressive at night as well when lit.

By hiring a live band for your event in Greece, you make sure that your guests will be much more involved in your party. The choice of Rosanna Mailan live band came after the origins of little Jorgos Erich’s dad, originally from Brazil. Latin tunes set the right atmosphere for dancing until early hours and parents along with their kids had a really nice party.
