A baptism is a special day both for a child and the family; it can represent everything from an introduction to a faith to the official giving of a name. If you’re planning a baptism celebration, our floral baptism invitations are a great way to spread the word.
If you’re planning a baptism, reception, or party, there are a number of factors you need to take into account. You should think about a theme for the party, the location and date, the guest list, and food or entertainment. We offer a handy planning guide to help you organize a fantastic baptism event. One of the most important things to consider, though, is your invitations—the right card can set the tone and start your planning efforts on the right foot.
There’s a lot of important information you should remember to include in a contemporary baptism invitation, such as:
However, it’s also a good idea to include a sweet personal message that helps you share your joy with your guests. Our invitations offer you a great deal of flexibility so you can say what you want, how you want.
The delicate floral designs on these invitations are an excellent choice for showcasing the beauty of your child. The understated patterns offer the unique feeling of floral print without becoming overwhelming, perfectly framing a photo of your baby. You can choose the color palette, going with pink or blue baptism invitations. (This is particularly useful if your baby’s gender is not immediately apparent from her or his name.)
These floral baptism invitations aren’t complete without the perfect picture of your child. When you’re trying to take—or choose—a photograph, there are a few important things to keep in mind. First of all, most pictures of babies look best when they’re close-up shots because it helps people feel a better connection with the child. Also, be sure the picture doesn’t show an unhappy baby; it can be difficult to get a newborn to smile, but you can often get an adorable picture simply by photographing your sleeping baby. Finally, decide whether you want a color shot or a black and white image; while color shots look highly realistic, black and white images can make the invitation look more polished and elegant.
