Baptism Celebration

I need inspiration for my son's baptism celebration in June for 25 guests at my home.  I want to keep it simple.  The baptism is 2-3pm so the celebration could begin at 3:30 or 4pm.

Should we serve a meal or just finger foods?  Maybe just cake and champagne? What are your thoughts? 

Any ideas on menu, decor, favors, music, drinks, etc.



Re: Baptism Celebration

  • You'd probably be fine to just do dessert and coffee/champagne.  I do like the idea of appetizer-style desserts, though.  Some of these desserts might work for you, particularly the pavlovas.


  • I think that for the time of the celebration, finger foods are totally fine.  I would suggest having some hot, some cold and some app-style desserts like PP mentioned.

    For decor, I think you can keep everything white.  Or white/yellow or white/green.  

    For favors, how about some pretty white cookies?  Or a photo of your son with the date on it?

    For music, I would suggest jazz or bossa nova.

    For drinks, you could do bottles of water, juice boxes for kids, beer, and sparkling wine or sparkling juice.

    HTH.  GL! 

  • Thanks for the great ideas...I'm looking forward to this celebration. 
  • Since it is in June... you could also do a picnic or bbq.  Fresly Squeezed Lemonade, BBQ Chicken, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad etc.  (all done in advance) would be really fun. 

    Congratulations!  and Please let us know what you do. :)
