Earlier this summer, we celebrated Miles’ Christening. It was a beautiful summer day and we felt truly blessed to baptize our sweet boy surrounded by family. After the ceremony, we continued celebrating the special day at our house.
Miles wore the same christening gown that all of his siblings wore. It was made by my mother out of my wedding gown. This gown, that I thought would remain boxed up after my wedding day, has now been worn over and over again. Each time it becomes an even more important part of our family tradition.
Each of my babies has worn the same gown, but has had something of their own to wear on their special day too. For Miles, it was this monogrammed bonnet.
Even if the celebration is a small one, I love paper invitations. I enjoy sending and receiving beautiful invitations and they also become a keepsake for the day. For Miles’ baptism, I decided to try the Uh Oh Pasgettio invitations for the first time. We have many Uh Oh Pasgettio prints and canvas in our house and they are some of our very favorite pieces of decor. Their designs are sweet, simple and beautiful. I had heard they also make invitations and decided to give them a try.
They did such an amazing job. They even helped me create a special design, showed me different font options, colors, etc. The team at Uh Oh Pasgettio works so hard for their customers and really makes you feel like the art you are ordering or the invitation is truly special. This invitation is just what I was looking for and we’ll be adding it to a shadowbox for Miles’ room.
The celebration at our house was a casual bbq, but to make it a little more special, I added some sweet blue decor (tassel banner) and had a local bakery make cross cookies for our guests. I found these little tags on Etsy and added them to the cookies.
Miles’ baptism was the most important day of the summer for our family. It was a day of celebration, family and special memories.
