Ozzie’s Baptism

Ozzie’s baptism was my first excuse to make party invitations, favors and decorate for a party in honor of Ozzie so I tried a few new things. I figure it was good practice for his 1st birthday party coming up at the end of this month.
Traditionally a candle is decorated with the child’s name and baptism date for the mass and is relighted every year on the anniversary of his baptism. Below is the candle, the invitation and his party favors. I decided to make magnets with the faith theme for the favors so I used dove and cross stickers.


I really wanted to make Martha Stewart’s tissue paper pom poms and a cross garland inspired by Hostess with the Mostess bunny garland. Honestly I could have spent more time fluffing my pom poms but I had a lot to get done and was running out of time. I think the cross garland is one of my favorites from the party.


For the cross cupcakes I bought ready to use fondant from Wilton. Oscar helped to roll it out, it was a huge chunk of fondant and I needed his muscle. We used a mini-cross cookie cutter and colored the frosting baby blue. They kind of looked like little gravestones but I still liked how they turned out.


My Mom just came back from a vacation in the Philippines and she brought Ozzie a traditional Filipino shirt called a Barong Tagalog. Ozzie looked too cute in his. Here he is with his cousin Kailani and smiling at his cousin Carissa {the official picture taker} over my shoulder.
