1. Blue & Gold Baptism 

Blue and white pin-stripes pair with tan and gold accents in this regal blue and gold boy’s baptism party. You can easily make an inviting dessert table with a tiered table skirt, flowers in the same color, and a wide range of clear apothecary jars filled with candy that matches and is decorated with ribbon ties and printable labels.

2. Fall Themed Baptism 

Celebrate a fall baptism with a fall-themed baptism party. This one has place settings, a refreshment area, and a pie dessert table all decorated with ombre fall colors and textures.

3. Elephant-Themed Baptism 


The sweetness of a baby elephant and shades of blue, yellow, and green pair with chevron patterns and polka dots creating a special elephant-themed baptism party. So many thoughtful details like printable toppers, party flags, and labels were added to candy jars, beverage jars, cupcakes, and favor boxes to build lasting memories of a lovely celebration.

4. Sweet Sheep Christening Party 

Cheery shades of yellow and pure white create a true atmosphere of joy in this sweet sheep christening party. Look for cute stuffed little lambs featured throughout the celebration space, made from fondant to accent the cake, cupcakes, and cake balls. There are even sweet felt sheep on wooden skewers embellishing beautiful, yellow rose flower arrangements.

5. Baby Lamb Theme

Incorporating a religious symbol such as a baby lamb into your baptism party theme can bring a special significance. You’ll notice the baby lamb used on the stationery items, and featured on the desserts like cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, and cake, too.

6. Baby Christening Ideas

Throw a travel-themed christening party, focusing on the beginning steps of his faith journey. Globes, vintage style maps, luggage, and travel books were styled into a gorgeous celebratory dessert table featuring a beautiful cake, popcorn cones, crucifix sugar cookies, and other sweet treats.

7. Super Sweet Baptism 

If you’re aiming for a super sweet baptism for your little boy, this one is full of adorable birdie details, and the fun, light-hearted colors will impress. We especially love the 3-tiered cake and sugar cookie favors with darling fondant bird details, and everything from the beautiful place settings to a full dessert table is truly divine. 

8. Hot Air Balloon Baptism 

You’re sure to be carried away by the amazing style and elegant details of this hot air balloon baptism party which boasts a gorgeous sky-inspired cake and full dessert table, plus airy decorations. We are obsessed with the hot air balloon props, but also love the cloud cookie pops and cupcakes!

9. Twin Boys Christening 

Lace detailing and shades of pastel blue are showcased in the design for this stylish twin boy’s christening celebration. The delicate lace detailing originated with the invitation sent to guests and was carried out on the christening gowns, the coordinating cakes, and via the lace doily backdrop display for the dessert table. You won’t want to miss any of these thoughtful details.

10. Key to my Heart Celebration

How will you honor your little prince’s christening? If he holds the key to your heart, a celebration like this one may be the answer. Royal-inspired cookies and cakes, menus, place settings, and favor bags with sweet “key to my heart” details make this key to my heart christening celebration extra special.

11. Nautical Themed Christening

If you’re gathering a crew of friends and family for a nautical-themed christening, set your sights on this beautiful celebration featuring a gorgeous dessert table with the most scenic water view as its backdrop. Starfish sugar cookies, fondant life-preserver topped cupcakes, anchor embellished cake pops, favor bags, and macarons are just a few of the highlights.
