Aki’s Baptism: Details and DIY’s

Date: Feb 27, 2010
Time: 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM
Motif : Green
Theme: Frugalicious/Pagtitipid

Baptismal Gown. Aki wore the same gown his dad wore back in 1980. The little catholic boy was behaved the whole time because he was having a blast munching on the ribbons of his gown.

Reception Outfit

Invitation, Envelope and Candle

Thank you tags for the cactus plants

Gift for Grandparents

Guestsheets and Pencils. Since frugalicous was the name of the game, buying or ordering a guestbook was never considered. Guestsheets are the cheaper and more fun alternative. I learned from our wedding that most people don’t bring pens so it’s best to provide one per table. I got these cute colorful pencils for a song from one of the booths in my current favorite cheap buy haven,  Ayala MRT. F is for Franco, one of Aki’s names. E is for the first letter of  our last name. Characters in Japanese just like Aki’s name.

Mega thanks to my scrap-blogging sister for the lay out and for keeping up with my OC-nes, to my MIL for the baptismal gown and to Sheela for the reception outfit. Special thanks to FIL for being the official photographer of the day.

And now i move on to the 1st birthday planning! Yehey!
