We have many precious baby christening invitations on this page. An infant’s christening ceremony is a special occasion celebrated by relatives and close friends. During this special event, the child is formally introduced into the Christian church by announcing his or her name in front of God and Jesus. The parents can also take this opportunity to give thanks that their child was able to enter the world safely with God’s blessing.
Below are some precious invitations that parents can use for a celebration of this importance.
Just as announcements can be specifically for a boy or a girl, so can baby christening invitations. The Radiant Cross design is a good example. Although described as a communion invitation, this and most religious invites can be used for other church occasions, too.
With this card, the dark pink color of the card clearly symbolizes the femininity of the infant while the lovely cross in the top center of the card stands as a reminder of what the event is all about. Many parents choose this type of design because of its simplicity.
Another example of baby christening invitations is the Fresh Fern.
While this card lacks the religious symbols of the earlier one, the color and the lovely fern decorations make it a good choice for parents wanting something understated, but still very feminine.
For parents who want something more personalized for their christening cards, the Glass Cross invite might work as well. The card is divided into four squares. In the upper right corner is a cross.
In the upper left and lower right corners, parents can include any photos they choose. The final square accommodates the printed message. Because parents can customize the card to include any pictures they choose and because the photos will make the invites into keepsakes, this particular design is very popular.
As with baby christening invitations for girls, the invites for boys are predominantly blue. The Little Boy card, for example, is light blue and white. In the upper center of the card, a little boy wearing a blue bow tie is pictured.
At the bottom center of the card is a small white cross. Although simple, the card combines both the symbolism of the religious event and of the child’s gender.
Some parents opt for baby boy invitations that use blue mostly for accent colors as is the case with the Elegant Verse card. The invite is almost entirely white except for a bar of blue near the top decorating with a cross on the right side.
Parents can choose to add their favorite Bible verse to this bar or can add another appropriate quote or verse. As the name suggests, the card is elegant which appeals to many parents who view the christening ceremony as a very formal occasion.
Just as the parents of little girls may want to include their photos on the invites, so might the parents of little boys. In that situation, the Understated Cross card works perfectly.
At the bottom of the card is a navy blue area where information about the event can be printed. However, about three-fourths of the card is taken up by a photo of your choosing. As with any photo card, this one makes a beautiful keepsake for relatives and friends, too.
While most of the baby boy christening cards come in blue, the Rosary Beads invite uses a different color scheme.
The main color of the card is brown while the ink and other design elements, such as the small cross in the left corner, are sky blue. The color combination works nicely and is one of the hottest trends in stationery at the moment.
Regardless of the infant’s gender, choosing the appropriate baby christening invitations is an important task for new parents. The card set the tone for this joyous event and brings together loved ones for a blessed occasion.
