Greek baptism invitations

I have designed a few Greek baptism invitations lately and they all seem like they are going to be big joyous celebrations. I was so interested in it I looked into it and found that the baptism of a baby in a Greek Orthodox Church is a ceremony second only to marriage in its symbolism, it is a major event in the child's life.
The godparents play a vital part as in many areas they have to bring the white towels, white sheets, olive oil, baptismal undergarments, baptism outfit, a gold cross for the baby, martyrika christening witness pins and white candles which are essential parts of the Greek baptism ceremony.
When the ceremony is complete the child wears a pure white outfit, the ceremony is then followed by a celebration at a local restaurant or their home.

These are examples of martyrika pins that can be given to the guests along with boubouniera.

I was inspired to design the Greek baptism invitation below I hope you like it, obviously it can be changed to fit any celebration from a traditional christening to a naming ceremony or even for a baby announcement card and colours can be changed.
