One of the most noted party supplies you will need when hosting a Baptism party is a songlist with a variety of music for your guests to enjoy. It is important to remember the celebration and pick songs that are appropriate and capture the special time. Goof times call for exceptionally great music, especially now.

There are many songs that are available to use for your next Baptism – you do not even have to think that hard because they are probably right under your nose!

Elton John – Blue Eyes
The Beatles - Here Comes the Sun
The Penguins - Earth Angel
Temptations - Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch
Annie Lennox - Shining Light
Bob Marley - Three Little Birds
Michael Buble - You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby. Any of these songs will bring a spring to the step.
Depending on whether it is a boy or a girl, you can pick specifics such as:

John Lennon - Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)
No Doubt - I'm Just A Girl
Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Want To Have Fun
Abba - Dancing Queen. Light pop songs like these are expected at any happening.

Use the Baptism party playlist as an opportunity to shed a little light and fun on the occasion and let the children dance and play. The music will be the highlight of the party and what keeps the party going. Even guests who are tired will find pep in their step! Inspirational suggestion: Go to bed early so that you can get enough sleep before the demands of the next day. Good organization is the key to planning an occasion with less stress, so may lists and check things off as you go. Group activities and games can be used to keep the guests entertained while keeping them busy at the same time.

A Baptism party calls for party supplies and decorations, but that is not all. A clam shell is frequently used in baptism ceremonies as the instrument used to pour water on the head. There are many homemade shell based party supplies that children can complete with limited art supplies. And since this day is all about kids, they should contribute. A more complicated shell craft based projects includes making a shell centerpiece. Guests are sure to marvel at this project, made with little hands.

Homemade Baptism party supplies should also include a Baptism banner. This item should be just as beautiful as it is useful. Numerous ways to design a banner (research design ideas) congratulate the boy or girl on this significant religious milestone. A simple handmade banner can be made by taking various Christian religious images and paint them on the banner with appropriate headline (Jane’s Baptism). Decorate the Baptism banner using soft pastel colors. Pink, lavender, yellow and light gold would qualify. Use card stock squares and string them together with yard or string in contrast to using one large sheet of paper for the banner.

God's Eye Ornament handmade party supplies are easy to make and very fun for children to do. It is simple to make and incredible to enjoy. Create a cross from Popsicle sticks by gluing them together. Once the crosses are dry, they wrap them with yarn, circling each stick and then moving on to the next in a spiral pattern. Use several different shades of yarn.

Baptism are generally rather simple in design with light pastel colors such as blue and pink. These are the classic hues one associates with babies and birth. Baptism cake also includes Christian symbols such as the cross or the cake is made to look like a cross. This spiritual symbol is just perfect for this fete. Flowers, pearls, ribbons in fondant and buttercream are common elements in a Baptism cake as well. And these are tasty and delicious elements indeed! For a girl's Baptism, a cake made to look like a Baptism dress is a popular choice among parents and cake makers as well. Less complicate cakes, but still attractive looking baptism cakes, may be made with a simple circle or square shape pattern with religious cake toppers such as angels, crosses, or edible images of the little boy or girl. Edible images of the boy or girl are an option for a Baptism cake. After all, this day is all about the small child.

Those who plan to make a Baptism cake avoid using bright colors that are more for a birthday party rather than a baptism. Blue and pink metallic colors are beautiful colors for a boy or girl Baptism cake. And when it comes to colors, there are many shades to choose from. Baby blue is a common color for a boy’s baptism as well. Also, match the baby blue Baptism cake with the rest of the party supplies and decorations for unity. Keep all Baptism cakes simple in design but ensure the theme of the cake is well represented for this very special occasion.

Sometimes it can be hard to come up with party ideas to celebrate a baptism. The baptism is a religious event during which a young child or an adult is ‘baptized’ with water to officially make them members of a religion such as with Baptists or Methodists. Often those who’ve experience the baptism what to celebrate it with a small party. These parties can be geared towards kids or adults or both. You can make the party as involved or as simple as you like, there are no real rules associated with holding a party to commemorate the baptism as long as its suitable and fun for you.

Those looking to hold a party can find plenty of party supplies with religious themes suitable for a christening party celebrating the baptism. You can purchase paper plates with gold and silver edging and a gold or silver cross emblazoned in the center. This is the same for napkins, and tablecloths. To accent these party supplies with decoration you can pick up hanging dangles in gold and silver colors, streamers, wall hangings and lots of other kinds of decoration. Don’t forget to pick up some balloons.

A more kids focused event can feature one of the child’s favorite television characters. Lots of kids like Disney characters. How about the Disney Princesses party theme for a little girl’s baptism? This would be a great theme for the party and give the guest of honor a chance to unwind and have a little bit of fun after the more serious ceremony. You can hand out party favors of feather boas and wands and get paper supplies featuring group shots of the Disney Princesses. These princesses would be Snow White, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Beauty from Beauty and the Beast, and even Cinderella. Don’t forget to send out the invitations.

Baptism History, Facts and Educational Resources

Widely considered a sacrament and ordinance of Jesus Christ, a Baptism marks one’s divine entrance into a particular church or faith. Yet this very sacred rite also can be a lot of fun.

Unlike many rituals, Baptism is practiced by many faiths; and in ways that have changed over time. Like all others this tradition has changed and grown. One constant ingredient in the ritual of Baptism involves purification by water. This is a beautiful and very sacred rite of faith.

Jesus Christ himself was said to be Baptized, as may have been John the Baptist. Early acts of Baptism were said to be characterized by total and complete immersion in a body of water. In later years people stood waist deep in water while water is poured over their heads; in other faiths water is simply poured on the forehead, or sprinkled over the head or face. The option chosen may depend on the person's tolerance for water.

In some churches only babies may be Baptized, as they are to be indoctrinated into their church in their youngest and purest forms. These churches tend to be very conservative in nature. In others people may be Baptized at any time of life, and they are considered “saved” and accepted by the Lord.

Still other religious institutions no longer practice this ritual.

Regardless of its specific character, a Baptism often is followed by a Baptism Party; a casual but meaningful celebration that can take place at the home of the Baptized person, a church reception hall, or a family restaurant. Refreshments could range from punch and finger sandwiches to white cakes and cookies in the shape of religious symbols. Gifts could include Bibles and plaques, and (in these more modern times) CDs of religious music.

Although the particulars of Baptism ritual and celebrations differ by congregation, they also center around a spiritual milestone in the life of a human being. Plan a Baptism Party today! The right favors given to the guests will allow them to remember that day many years from now. Never underestimate the power of a clear glass bowl; fill it with flowers, or glass marbles, or seashells, or candy or chips, or make it a dish garden centerpiece or put holiday ornaments in it. The right favors given to the guests will allow them to remember that day many years from now. The history of Baptism has different interpretations by each person, so use your own judgement. Share these facts with friends at a celebration.
