With an antique feel, and a "princely" focus, our Sweet Prince decorating theme is typically meant for baby showers but works just as well (maybe even better!) in celebration of your son's Baptism, First Communion, or Christening. Featuring such recognizable icons as baby shoes, pacifiers, and cuddly teddy bears, Sweet Prince is an ideal choice for celebrating your young prince's faith-centric event.
Sweet Prince Christening and Baptism Decorating & Party Ideas
Baby baptism parties are an opportunity for family and friends to gather and congratulate the parents on their beautiful baby. These occasions can be large or intimate, but most are usually the size of a baby shower, perhaps 20 people. Baptism parties often function as “open houses,” meaning guests will drop in throughout the afternoon. Try to keep the structure of the party loose and carefree. Supply your guests with the basics—food, drink and plenty of places to sit—and then leave them to their own devices.
When you’re planning the baptism party, think of it as a combination baby shower and birthday party; you’re welcoming the baby into the spiritual world and celebrating the day of his birth. Although a baptism is very special in nature, they aren’t as complex as birthday parties or showers. For example, you won’t need to plan games or unwrap gifts (save that part for later), and you won’t have to serve a full meal. You can focus on the most important event—admiring the baby!
Party Pail’s Sweet Prince baptism party decorations are a delightful theme for a young boy’s baptism — he is your sweet prince, after all! Start by inviting your guests with the Sweep Prince Baptism Invitations, which coordinate beautifully with the rest of Party Pail’s Sweet Prince Baptism supplies. On the food or display table, set the Sweet Prince Baptism Centerpiece, an adorable set of four blocks, in the center, and then ring it with the Sweet Prince Baptism Napkins with matching cups and plates, both in theme print and solid color.
A casual afternoon party is the easiest to put together, especially one that focuses on the important elements: food, drink and conversation. Serve a selection of cheeses, crackers, vegetables, dips and fresh fruit. You might even include a plate or two of finger sandwiches. As an alternative to alcohol beverages, offer your guests water, juices, soda and a bowl of delicious punch.
Although the party will center on the baby, offer your guests a few other things to do between snacking and cooing. Set out a few lawn games in the backyard, like badminton or croquet, as well as a few group board games, like Pictionary, Trivial Pursuit or charades. As incentive for keeping the TV turned off, select a song playlist that is fun and has mass appeal and keep the music flowing.
If younger guests are attending, include them in the fun by giving them paper crowns to wear so that they, too, can be sweet princes and princesses for the day. Provide them with crayons and ask them to color in their own crowns. As party favors, they can take home bags of “royal gold” chocolate coins.
