Arkin's Christening Preparation

Finally! Arkin is going to be christened on Nov 25 :)

Here we are so far in terms of preparation:

Invitation - I love making invitation layouts obviously. I have created several invitations for friends as you can see in this blog.
Too bad my Adobe PS was erased few weeks ago and I am left with MS Powerpoint to work with...

Original christening theme was HOOT OWL but I ditched the idea when my Adobe PS said goodbye. 

Anyway, here's the invite.. Yup, very simple.. no kaartehan embellishments like I usually do...
The photos were taken at our subdivision's playground. 
I'll get them printed at PHOTOLINE (my fave photoprinting shop)

 Tarpaulin - made again using MS Powerpoint (aaarrgghhh.. I really wish I have Adobe PS now) but I'm glad that my hubs, Albert , liked my design.

Cake - thinking of getting a cupcake tower from Iko's.
Here's my DIY cupcake topper :)

Souvenir/Giveaway - I wanted the souvenirs to be personalized but I have little time to do it. Just opted to find a unique giveaway and still searching pa din...

Here are the tags:

For the Souvenir Candles

Church - CHECKED

Baptismal clothes/shoes/cap for Arkin - will buy White Polo Shirt and Pants and Loafers (He's way too big for traditional Christening attire)

Reception Venue - house lang

Tables and Chairs - will rent at CJAZ Party Shop

Center Piece - I originally wanted teddy bears with balloons but need to save eh...

Ninongs/Ninangs - All close friends lang :) 5 pairs (unlike Lexi who had like... I can't remember how many kasi super dami talaga..hehe)

Food - my mom will cook Menudo, Lumpia, Fish Fillet, Chopsuey and Hub's ordered pugon Pork Lechon from a friend and I might also order Pancit Malabon and Pichi Pichi from Ambers :)

Baby Registry - I might go to Rustan's, Chicco and Babyland if my time permits :)

Hayyyy....I am really excited for this event :)

Silly me.. I said I ditched the OWL Theme but look at the Tarp, Tags and CC Toppers :D

UPDATE 11/12/12:

Lookie.. :)

UPDATE 11/13/12:
Done with Godparent's souvenirs/token...it'll be a tumbler with a simple sticker :)

UPDATE 11/14/12:
    Hubs and I decided to change the reception.
We have decided to have it at Shakey's so that my mom doesn't have to cook (to save her time and energy)
Now, I am thinking if they will allow us to setup a dessert buffet..I'll find out later..

I also changed the tarp.. I thought Hubs liked it but he was referring to the invite not the tarp :(
He doesn't like too much embellishments so I amended the tarp into this....

 He wants it simple no added pa-tweetums effect. Oh well.. pagbigyan na! :)
