The personalized keepsake box is made to hold all of those precious little things from baby Lyla’s Christening. The outside lid of the box gives Lyla’s full name and the date of the Christening, and is framed in the same beautiful champagne silk as the mini blanket inside of it. The interior lid has a small puffy pocket with an “L” for Lyla embroidered on it’s center, the pocket can hold small treasures and hold them securely due to the white satin ribbon closure. The middle of the lid holds an accordion album all set for mommy and daddy to add photos and hand written memories of Lyla’s special day and is alto held in place by a white satin ribbon tie. The accordion album is personalized with Lyla’s full name, christening information and has titles on each page for mommy and daddy to record special guests who attend her Christening, gifts that she receives, information about the minister, the church, her godparents and even the Christening party-with plenty of room for favorite photos. The right side of the interior lid has a mini memory board made of the champagne silk (showing off it’s shiny satiny side) and white satin ribbons on the diagonal. The ribbons are held in place with champagne colored french knots. This mini memory board is the perfect size for small cards, photos or little mementos of Lyla’s special day. The bottom part of the box is filled with a soft cushiony champagne padding-oh, the luxury! The left side of the bottom of the box holds an invitation to Lyla’s Christening and will hold other special cards received. The Christening invitation is held in place by a champagne colored ribbon. The middle of the bottom of the box has two more champagne ribbons-for other small items that Lyla may receive such as a silver rattle or fork and spoon. The right side of the bottom portion of the box holds the special mini blanket made especially for Lyla.

This mini blanket is made of a light shantung silk-the front is the slightly nubby textured side and the back is the satiny smooth side. The champagne color is intended to coordinate with baby Lyla’s great grandmother’s christening gown. The mini blanket has Lyla’s monogram embroidered in a stem stitch in the center of the blanket. A stem stitch frames the outer edges of the blanket and the interior of the framing shows off a multitude of flowers done in varying shades of champagne-from ivory, light brown, a khaki and even a slight pink champagne. The flowers are worked using the lazy daisy stitch, french knots, back stitches, wrapped back stitches, stem stitches, ¬†among other hand crafted embroidery stitches.
