The idea to celebrate a party with a magic theme is the concept of a cake in the shape of a top hat, the typical one used by magicians. To make the hat tall, you will have to join 3 bases. To fill it, you can use cream with fruits, the ones you like the most. You will have to leave it in the refrigerator for a few hours so that you can apply the cake fondant.

Meanwhile, you will have to make the lid of the hat, where you will have to take a lot of oreos and mix them with butter, until you get a consistent paste, give it a circular shape with a mold and also let it cool, about thirty minutes.

When everything has cooled, cover it with black fondant, and stick the lid with the remaining cream. You make a band of red fondant to wrap around the top of the hat. And to decorate the top, you can make bunny ears (or find them in ready-made cake toppers), to put in the center of the cake.

Finally, around the cake, you can put decorative elements such as stars, a wand or the year of the birthday boy. This cake is quite easy to make, and your guests will not believe that you made it and it will be a great surprise.

How to Announce an Engagement

How to Announce an Engagement

How to Announce an Engagement

 

Marriage is a legal and solemn act representing the alliance of two people who will commit themselves for better or worse and find a home.

But before the big day, many lovers go through the engagement stage.

What is an engagement?

This somewhat outdated custom is coming back into fashion. The engagement has indeed lost its ceremonial.

However, they represent a mark of love between two people and allow for an intimate celebration where respective families and close friends meet.

In the days of our grandparents and great-grandparents, the young man’s father proposed to the girl’s parents.

Customs have evolved, and only a few prominent families respecting the traditions still practice this custom.

The engagement announces the forthcoming marriage of two people who wish to unite for life. It is also a moment of reflection, and this first commitment allows the future spouses to realize what will be the real commitment of marriage.

How to organize the engagement?

How to Announce an Engagement

The engagement organization is often traditional, and the reception is organized with the two families, relatives, and friends.

It is often intimate and brings parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters together. The number of guests is usually limited.

Respecting traditions

If one wishes to respect traditions, it is the parents of the future fiancée who organize the reception and fix the precise date of the engagement. This often takes place a year before the wedding.

Nowadays

Nowadays, the two families organize the engagement party together.

It is also possible to create a surprise by making the engagement official at a family gathering.

The etiquette rule is that the groom delivers a bouquet of white flowers to the bride on the morning of the engagement.

The reception

According to custom, guests are received on a table covered with a white tablecloth, embroidered or lace, which allows the silverware, china and crystal glasses to stand out.

If you have decided to respect the rules of good manners, here is the arrangement to adopt:

The bride’s father and mother sit opposite each other in the center of the table.

To their right and left (places of honour), the parents and grandparents of the bride and groom will sit.

The bride and groom are seated at the end of the table and should not be separated until their first wedding anniversary.

Other family members and friends will be seated according to their age and affinity, taking care to mix the two families.

For dessert, a toast can be made in honour of the newly engaged couple.

You can also opt for a less traditional engagement, therefore more relaxed, such as a country meal, a garden party, a barbecue, or a big party with families and friends.

Religious and catholic people can celebrate the engagement during a religious ceremony. The engagement ring will be blessed during a mass.

The engagement aims to introduce the two families who do not know each other and define the organization and the wedding preparations.

How to announce the engagement?

The date of the engagement is finally set and made official. The invitation will be made through invitation cards, invitations that allow to mark the event or simply by phone or email.

The engagement news is announced at least two months before the engagement.

The engagement ring

Engagement rings are the symbol of the commitment that the engaged couple is wearing.

If it is traditionally the man who offers a ring to the woman, the customs evolve! It is increasingly common for future spouses to offer each other rings or beautiful jewelry to mark their mutual acceptance of the engagement and show their love.

Engagement ring and tradition

How to Announce an Engagement

According to tradition, the fiancé or the young man’s family offers the ring that the young girl is waiting for. The couple can also choose the jewel together, or the man can give the bride a family jewel.

The fiancé can choose between stones like diamond, ruby, emerald, and sapphire. In the past, rubies and emeralds were forbidden, while white stones were the norm.

The fiancé puts the ring on the left ring finger of the young girl (vein of love) during the reception in front of all the guests or alone.

The bride-to-be can also buy a gift for her fiancé to prove her love: a watch, a signet ring…

Price of an engagement ring

The price of an engagement ring varies according to the quality of the stone and its size.

On average, and as an indication, you should expect to pay

for a 0.5-carat diamond solitaire: $3,000 to $5,000;

for semi-precious stones: $700 to $1,000.

Do not hesitate to ask the jeweller for an invoice and a certificate of the ring purchased.

Breakdown of the engagement: return of the ring?

Generally, there is no return of the engagement ring, but it is sometimes possible:

if it is a family jewel;

in a case of wrongful termination at the initiative of the recipient of the gift;

if the ring is of significant value and disproportionate to the donor’s assets.

For the skin:

A neutral makeup base to set the foundation.

The colour of the foundation should be identical to your skin tone. Beware of greasy foundations that shine and stain hands and clothes.

The powder should be ultra fine.

The mister will set the makeup, and then you will press a tissue on your face.

Your eyes:

Your mouth:

Do not use intense colours

Trace the outline of your lips with a pencil of colour close to the colour of the lips.

Nails:

Call a manicurist or an esthetician

Tips for Your Wedding Makeup

Always remember to take care of your skin, whatever your age, and this well before the “D” day. Apply day and night creams.

If you have skin problems (redness, pimples, acne, blackheads), do what is necessary and consult a dermatologist.

Get a facial a few days before the wedding to keep your skin healthy and fresh.

Avoid overloaded and heavy makeup as well as violent colours.

Your makeup should last throughout your wedding and shouldn’t shine on the photos either. So, if you are emotional, go for waterproof makeup.

Keep a small makeup kit for touching up during the evening, just before the wedding entertainment and before the first dance on your husband’s arm.

To be always fresh, don’t forget the deodorant.

As in any birthday, you cannot miss the food and dessert tables, and for that, the location choice is also very important. If you do it inside the house and have a terrace or balcony, the best location would be near one of the windows as this will help you to complete the decorations with part curtains and also hang some decorations.

On the contrary, if you plan you to throw your party outdoors, like in the countryside, the best option would be near a tree so that you can hang your decorations, like the traditional triangle-shaped pennants. And this will perfectly create the forest environment where Bambi lived.

Dessert Table

Once you’ve decided where to place the table, you can start decorating it. Always remember the pastel color scheme including light pinks, lilacs, pale blues, browns and greens.

We recommend you choose a tablecloth that is neutral in tone but at the same time striking since it is the first thing your guests will see on the table, You can then place flowers, butterfly confettis along with normal confetti to give your table that soft and warm touch that the little deer brings uus,

Your tableware can include disposable plates and paper cups with nature designs that will be ideal for the occasion. It will stand out among the food where you can use disposable trays so it’s easier for you when it will come to cleaning after the party. This will also prevent the kids from breaking your dishes. Along the table, you can also put some small figurines of Bambi and its friends. Those can also be edible for more fun.

Balloons

What Wedding Budget Should I Plan?

What Wedding Budget Should I Plan?

 Organizing a wedding requires a lot of time and especially a lot of money. Wedding preparations are expensive: ceremony, dress, reception and entertainment… So what is the budget for a wedding?

 What is the budget for a wedding?

 The average wedding budget in Canada is about 13 000. However, the amount is different depending on:

 – the standard of living of each person;

 – the region or country where the wedding will take place

 – the number of guests.

 To reduce the wedding budget, you can do some things yourself. Expenses can also be shared between the parents and the bride and groom or divided on a case-by-case basis.

 As a general rule, you should know that you will exceed your budget by at least 15%. So get your calculators and think about getting estimates!

Ask for wedding quotes

Wedding Budget

The best way to estimate your wedding budget is to ask for quotes from wedding professionals. Don’t hesitate to ask for several quotes from different service providers to compare prices and services.

To get a coherent wedding estimate, try to specify as much as possible your wishes and expectations. The more precise you are, the more the quotes you receive will correspond to your needs.

Be as attentive as possible to the content of the estimate given by the different wedding professionals. Do not focus only on the price, but consider the services offered. The lowest quote is not necessarily the most interesting! If you do not understand certain elements, do not hesitate to ask for explanations.

Services and products can vary significantly from one company to another, and the most attractive prices are usually only offered for essential services and products. The cost of additional options can be high.

Once you have selected one or more quotes, don’t hesitate to ask about the providers. You can even contact them by phone or make an appointment to meet them.

Solutions for your budget

Think about your wedding budget:

– Get your wedding sponsored to reduce the cost of your wedding.

– Ask for a credit for your wedding to compensate for the high expenses that can affect your budget.

– Use a wedding planner, but this one also has a cost.

In any case, the wedding fair, which gathers many professionals specialized in this field, will be at your disposal and will be able to help you to organize your wedding.

What Is the Purpose of Civil Baptism?

What Is the Purpose of Civil Baptism?

Summary

The purpose of civil baptism

Civil baptism: where does it take place?

Civil baptism is performed outside of any religion and allows designating a godfather or a godmother for his child. Any legislative or regulatory text does not govern it. It is also called “Republican baptism” or “Republican sponsorship”. Let’s discover this practice together.

What is the purpose of civil baptism?

Presentation of civil baptism

Civil baptism allows parents to designate a godfather or godmother for their child. This designation is done outside of any religious framework.

The designated person must agree to assume the role of godfather or godmother.

Note: civil baptism is also considered a ceremony where the child enters the Republican community to share its values.

Obligations of the godfather or godmother

The exact role of the godfather or godmother must be defined by mutual agreement between the godfather and the parents. In principle, this agreement does not constitute a contract.

The civil baptism sponsor undertakes to replace the parents, to a certain extent, if they disappear or fail in their mission. He or she must then help the child, at least morally.

Attention: the civil baptism godfather must not be confused with a tutor. In particular, he or she is not responsible for managing the child’s assets. If the parents want to designate a guardian, they must do so by a document signed in front of a notary or through a will. This guardian will have to take care of the child until he or she reaches the age of majority in the event of the parent’s death. The parents can choose the persons who are also godparents of the civil baptism, provided that they meet the legal requirements to be guardians.

Civil Baptism: Where does it take place?

baptism

A civil baptism must take place at the town hall. Therefore, the parents must seek the reception and organizing of the civil baptism at their municipality’s town hall.

Role of the town hall

The town hall is not obliged to organize the civil baptism. If it refuses, the parents can ask another municipality (for example, a city with which the family has special ties).

The town hall can ask for official documents for the civil baptism: birth certificate, family record book, or identity papers.

Good to know: the municipality can organize the civil baptism only if certain conditions are met. For example, the “baptized” child must be young (ideally, a baby). Some communes, it seems, accept that the godparents are minors (while requiring that they be of minimum age, for example, 13 years).

Certificates of sponsorship

No legislative or regulatory text imposes a special ceremony if the town hall organizes the civil baptism. The ceremony is presided over by the mayor or a deputy. The municipality’s representative delivers a speech, during which he or she reminds the audience of Republican values.

The mayor’s office may issue documents to the participants, such as sponsorship certificates. These documents have no legal value.

Note: civil baptism is not a civil status document. It is therefore not recorded in the civil status registers.
