Baptism for Twins Sneak Peek

by Dinah Wulf

Guess what?? I’m a Godmother!  Guess what else?  OF TWINS!! I am so excited and truly honored to be the Godmother of my best friend’s daughters.  Needless to say, I wanted to help with the decorations for the Baptism reception.  So, here is a Baptism for Twins Sneak Peek!

First of all, I have to explain that the twins are identical.  I still can’t tell them apart and I see them several times a week.  The only way I can tell them apart is that Jaime wears a pink ribbon on her tiny wrist and Brooklyn wears a purple one.   Therefore, the color scheme for the reception is pink and purple.  Also, we decided on shells since shells are symbolic of a Catholic Baptism.

Here are five easy party decorating projects suited for a Baptism, shower, or beach themed party.

Baptism Signs

If you have a good photo printer like I do, signs are a simple way to add a personal touch to any party.  I made these four signs simply by finding an image on Google Images, Googling some Baptism poems and sayings, and merging them together with a free program called iPiccy.com. Here is what they say in case you can’t read them!

Precious angels from heaven above are welcomed into God’s family with love

Brooklyn and Jaime little blessings from up above!

All of God’s graces in two little faces

Twinkle, twinkle tiny light, little eyes that shine so bright, precious babies from heaven above, fills our hearts with so much love

Baptism Monograms

I bought each of the girl’s initials and added a ribbon, raffia, and shells.

Baptism Crosses

 

I bought wooden crosses for a dollar, painted them, and added ribbon, raffia, and shells to match the initials.

Flower Vases

I decided to do flower arrangements similar to the ones I did for the golf themed baby shower I did recently.  These are the vases I made out of recycled food jars.  I hot glued burlap and a shell and added white ribbon and a string of plastic pearls.

Food Shell Toothpicks

These are fun an easy to make using toothpicks, hot glue, and small sea shells.  It’s a great way to add the theme into the food table.  You can use them for appetizers or desserts.

Can’t wait to show you pictures of the actual reception decorations! Until tomorrow!
