Yesterday was a big day for Gabriel–dedication day! (If you’ve never heard of a baby dedication, this is a good reference to learn more.) As parent’s we accept responsibility in raising Gabriel in a Godly manner, and we ultimately trust God with his life! We are so excited for the destiny on our son’s life!
We invited Gabriel’s grandparents, and aunts & uncles to celebrate with us! Here were some details of the day (which are also a few of my fall favorites!)
I got these R’s from a local shop! So different than the traditional wreath! 🙂 I wanted some fall decor on the porch to warmly greet our guests!
Similar to the Christmas tree themes in our home we shared on our “Holiday Home Tour”, we like to “deck the halls” with pumpkins in the fall–but more glitzy and glam than the traditional rustic decor!
I loved these Makenzie Childs pumpkins for our kitchen/ family room!
And believe it or not, I found these sweet pumpkins at a really great price for our dining room, at TARGET!
I got these beauties a few years ago, but I bet if you google DIY rhinestone pumpkins you could make your own, and get the look for less! 🙂
Here’s a close-up!
I’m big on flowers, so here is a fun fall arrangement we had made:
And the best fall find…this little tea towel from Anthropologie!
My favorite fall candle? NEST! Perfect for the “Robbins Nest” ongoing theme at our home! 🙂
When family is here, I like to focus on FAMILY (not dishes!) So we cater in–and I use paperware! Yep, no stress…I found these at Target!
I love Chalkboard signs…we used this to display our thanks to our family (for celebrating our little “pumpkin”).
We asked each grandparent, aunt, and uncle to sign a book to commemorate Gabriel’s dedication day!
The book was “Good Good Father”. If you follow my blog you know that this is the song we sang to Gabriel when he was in my belly…he still finds comfort when I sing it to him today.
We commit to be the best parents to him on this earth…but find comfort in knowing that we can trust our Heavenly Father with his life and his future, for all of his days, and for eternity!
Thanks for popping into the blog, and celebrating our little pumpkin, Gabriel!
