Tips for Planning a MI Bautizo Party

MI Bautizo

Celebrating such an important occasion might feel daunting at first, but all you need is a simple checklist to ensure you’ve put the right pieces in place for your guests to enjoy your celebration. Once you break things down to a party planning checklist, you’ll find there really aren’t that many steps to the perfect party. Here’s a look at how to get started.

1. Choose the Godparents and Coordinate Details

The godparents will be like guests of honor at the party as they play an important role in mi bautizo. Make sure that the date for the occasion works for them. Ultimately, your calendar and the godparents’ calendar are what matter most. Once you know the availability of the church, you can work with the godparents to select an ideal date.

2. Build Your Guest List

A guest list will help you plan for how many people you’ll be celebrating with. Write down the friends and family you’ll be inviting and the number of potential party guests in each family. If you’re using a party center and have a cap on how many guests you can invite, be sure to take note of that and keep your list to that number. As RSVPs start rolling in, you can always invite more people once you know who will actually attend. 

3. Choose a Party Venue

Once you know how many guests you’d like to invite, you can select a party venue. Perhaps it is your home, a room in the church or a clubhouse where you’re a member. No matter where your party will be, just make sure you have adequate space based on your guest list.

4. Send Invitations

You now have the scheduling worked out for your party so you’re ready to move to get invitations in the mail. In your invites, don’t forget to include these important details:

  • Date
  • Location
  • Time
  • Name of the person being baptized
  • Gift policy (optional)

Ideally, you want invitations to go out no less than three weeks before the event. That way, guests have plenty of time to arrange their plans to be there for this important moment in your child’s life.

5. Consider Family Traditions

Think through other mi bautizo celebrations in your family and review if there are any traditions you want to include in your ceremony or celebration. Doing so can help make the occasion feel even more special and memorable. 

6. Choose Party Favors (Optional)

You don’t have to provide party favors, but they can be a nice touch for helping your guests feel important and honored to be celebrating with you. Plus, a party favor can serve as a great keepsake of the occasion. Some ideas include a keychain or candle. These items can also serve as reminders to keep the child in their prayers throughout their lifetime.

7. Build a Menu

Snacks and cake are customary at these celebrations. Depending on the time of day, you might just provide light snacks or a full meal. Evaluate your guest list and who has said they are coming to decide how much food to make. 

If the guest list starts to nudge higher than 25 or 30 people, you might consider catering the event or asking family members for help making the food. You want to be able to enjoy the moment and celebrate the occasion with loved ones instead of spending the whole time worrying about the food and cake tables.

8. Purchase Party Decorations

It’s amazing how a few party decorations can make a baptism celebration feel more festive. You can transform your home instantly into a party venue by hanging some signs and balloons and decorating tables with tablecloths and centerpieces. You don’t have to go crazy to make the party feel festive, but you will want to add some nice touches here and there. We’ve put together a list below to help you get started.

9. Remember to Enjoy the Moment and Take Photos

The day of the celebration will likely be busy. Try to take a few moments to pause and build memories of this important occasion. And when you can, snap a few photos to share with your little one as they grow up. Mi bautizo often takes place when a child is still a baby, which means they will have little memory of the event. Photos can help them feel connected to their christening.
