Helpful Advice on Planning a Baptism Party

By Sarah L Mitchell

Planning a baptism celebration can be stressful, but keeping it as straightforward as possible will help alleviate stress for you and for the one being baptized.

A baptism is a huge part of a person’s life. Whether it is a baby, a small child’s baptism or an adult reborn into the Christian community, it is important to make this special day one to remember for the people participating in it. Baptism parties are parties designed to take place after the baptism has occurred. This is where families and church groups will gather to socialize. It is good to have a plan already written down and figured out in detail before the actual event. This planning will alleviate any stress during the celebration time, and allow the host or hostess to enjoy the baptism.

Do you know how many people are attending, and how many kids will be accompanying them? What kind of church is it? These questions will help you to decide on certain things the baptism party will need to succeed. You will need a place big enough to accommodate the number of people coming and the amount of
baptism favors and food you plan to bring. Overshooting or undershooting could either be a disaster or just waste too much money.

Many baptism parties are themed to fit not only the younger children present, but also the adult audience as well. Themes like crosses or teddy bears are good to start with when thinking of baptism favors and décor, like tablecloths, plates, and napkins. Simple things like these can be found at local party stores, or you can find them at several retailers online.

Make sure that the event has enough entertainment for everyone. It is good to section off areas where you can assign people to them. These posts will ensure that the baptism party will run smoothly and orderly and there is no confusion. Making sure everything is running on time is important too. If you are on a tight schedule, you need to pick events and things that will take up a short amount of time. Have a specific event, such as a game or prayer, before leaving the baptism party to signal that the party is ending will ensure that your guests know it’s time to start packing up. Some venues and places you rent will cost you rent by the hour, so you need to be aware of how much time you are spending, or you will be charged a higher amount than anticipated.

If you prefer to have the baptism at home, there are a few things to keep in mind. Make sure if you have jumping devices, or other things the children can have fun on, that they are covered by your homeowner’s insurance. If something happens to the child, you could get sued. The most important thing is to have the food prepared early and in large enough quantity to go around. If you don't have the time, or are short on hands to help you, consider hiring a catering service. This will also help alleviate any stress you may have over hitting a specific time frame.

If the baptism in question is for a baby, it can be really exhausting for the little one. This is where the attention is going to be for the party. Just keep in mind the baby can become tired quickly, so it is good to know what signs the baby is giving you, in case you need to cut the baptism short. A baptism can be relatively simple. As long as you stick to the theme and have a great time celebrating new life, you should have a great baptism party!
