Nate Velasquez Alcasid’s Christian Dedication

When I was asked to come up with a theme for Baby Nate Alcasid’s Christian Dedication dinner celebration and provide details for it, too, I didn’t have to think twice. I, of course, said yes.

Of the five dream boards that I created, this Cute as a Button theme was found to be the perfect choice for this particular event.

I bought thousands of pastel-colored buttons to match their already existing color motif of blue, yellow, and green.

There really was no need for table numbers, but I just couldn’t resist making these. I guess I made the right decision because people found them really cute!

I then bought four 9x12” canvasses to spell out N-A-T-E using buttons.

Strings of buttons were made to be hung from the ceiling. Badang, who styled this event, chose to incorporate them into the backdrop instead because the ceiling was too high.

Because Nate loves teddy bears, little teddy bear key chains served as one of the keepsakes. In keeping with the theme, I added a button to each stuffed toy at the last minute.

I designed a pattern of buttons, printed them out, and made them into napkin belts for 150 guests.

Other details included buntings, frames, and tea bags!

Below are more photos of the finished setup. I have to say, this is something that you won’t usually see from Badang Rueda. I’m used to seeing rich, grand, and elaborate setups from him, but this was a welcome change. This setup was dainty and refreshing.

I hope you found this Cute as a Button theme… well, cute! It took me a few sleepless nights, shoulder aches, and burnt fingers from all the hot glue, but it was all worth it!

Thank you to Nice Print Photography, the official photographers and videographers of the event, for sending some pictures over!
