Christening Invitation, Baptism favor, gift and dessert ideas

The Christening invitation we made for our twin grandsons baptism was one of my favorite creations.  Using a Shutterfly template we were able to create a beautiful invitation that also decorated our baptism party buffet table and came back to the boys as a framed christening gift! It was so easy to design thanks to the wonderful technology that Shutterfly has incorporated into their website.  Take a look at our beautiful creation! Below we also have ideas for Baptism favors, Christening Desserts and Baptism Gifts!

We put an insert into the envelope inviting everyone back to our house for dinner immediately following. I decided to keep the invitation focused on the essence of the day.. their Christening.  I was so thrilled when one of our friends framed the card as a Christening gift... I never had that in mind when we designed it.  I had it mounted on an easel on the buffet table for the gathering back at the house.  So this simple and unique baptism invitation was used in multiple ways.. how great is that!
