Tips for Planning a Baby Baptism Party and Designing Baptism Invitations

By: Naptime Productions

In the Catholic and Protestant faiths, newborns are anointed with holy water and blessed by the church clergy. In the catholic religion, the baptism serves to wash away original sin. In some protestant faiths, the baby is dedicated to the church. Sometimes, a baby is baptized in the name of a patron saint. Since baptisms almost always involve large family gatherings, it's important to commemorate the occasion by planning a baby baptism party that will be a joyous and memorable event.

Before beginning your baptism party planning, it's important to keep in mind that baptism is a formal religious ceremony. With this knowledge, you should attempt to achieve a balance between solemnity and happiness. You may wish to include suggestions on attire in the baptism invitations.

When sending out baptism invitations, remember that if the party is scheduled to take place following the baptism, proximity to the church is key. You can hold the gathering in your home, a neighborhood park, the church hall, a restaurant or an event hall. The number of guests will affect preparations, arrangements and baptism party planning. In addition, other children may also be involved, so be sure to consider entertainment options for them. You can set up a television to play a children's video, craft table or plan some games to hold their attention -- at least for a while!

Now. . .what about food? Depending on the time of the baptism and the weather, you can arrange a buffet lunch, afternoon tea, low-maintenance spread or backyard barbecue. Consider having drinks on hand to toast the baby's health and a white cake with white frosting that includes the baby's initials, name and christening date.

You should also consider having party favors for the guests as part of your baptism party planning. Among the appropriate themes you could choose from include crosses, the color white, doves, angels, candles and Bibles. A baptism is a significant day in a family's life, signifying the introduction of the baby into the church and community.
