  • Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff’s unica hija Dahlia Amelie celebrated her second birthday on Wednesday, March 2, with a pastel-themed party. She shared on her Instagram account that their family also celebrated Dahlia’s baptism.

    She writes in her caption, “We pray that the Lord and His angels will always protect and guide her as she grows up.”

    Anne ends her post in French saying, “On t'aime tellement notre petite fleur”. It translates to “We love you so much our little flower.”

    Anne’s post shows two gold pendants, one with an engraving of a dahlia flower and the other of what appears to be an angel with children.

    Dahlia’s name and birthday are engraved on the back of the angel pendant, presumably belonging to the celebrant while “ma petite fleur” (my little flower) and the same birthdate are on the dahlia pendant which we presume is mommy Anne’s.

    One can see the matching pendants on Anne and Dahlia in their event photos shot by Cocoon Studio. Pat Dy, who shot Anne and Erwan's wedding, owns the family photography brand.

    Dahlia’s cake and event styling followed a muted pink and mint green palette. Gideon Hermosa styled the event and of course, he used the dahlia flower in the styling.

    Why celebrate your child’s birthday and baptism together

    1. Cut your costs

    Families who do a double celebration, a birthday and Christening, often choose to do so to save money. Combine the budget of two smaller celebrations instead of throwing two small celebrations. This way you can have a grander event.

    If you do not enjoy the task of planning a party, a single party reduces the party planning you must do.

    2. Parents are playing catch up

    Parents now feel better about going to and hosting gatherings with their children. This is thanks to the lower Alert Level for many areas in the Philippines.

    Families who  delayed their children’s baptisms are now catching up. We hear it’s made for some colorful moments with the priest because celebrants are now toddlers instead of being newborns.

    If you’ve put off your child’s baptism, why not schedule it around their next birthday like Dahlia?

    3. Simplifying your calendar

    Going out on a daily or even weekly basis can feel more tiring than usual after staying home has become the norm. Our jam-packed schedules pre-pandemic suddenly feels foreign now.

    Allowing your family breathing room as you transition to the new normal will help ease your kids into the new normal.
