DIY Christening and Birthday Celebration The Inday Melyn Style!

My love for DIY started when I decided to bake my own personalized celebration cakes, as they are a little pricey when bought from well versed cake bakers and decorators. After baking for two birthdays, I find no time for molding the cupcake toppers since I also had a baby that time. When my third son's birthday came, I decided to make paper cupcake topper or what others call it cupcake picks. I find it less time consuming as I only had to design once and print as many as I can. At that time, I created the Smurfs themed cupcake picks and to my surprise, my son's friends find it cute that some of time brought it with them at home and became an instant thank you tag.

With that success, I decided to do the same thing for my daughter's Christening and my first-born son's birthday double celebration party. Hubby and I choose purple for my daughter and my son wants the minions for him. So with those in mind, I designed the bunting banner, cupcake toppers and cupcake wraps.

So drum rolll...............
