Three Ideas To Make Your Christening Special

Three Ideas To Make Your Christening Special

by | Blog, Christenings

The time has come for your child to be christened. If you don’t already know, a Christening is a ceremony where the child is brought before a priest and water is poured over the child’s head to cleanse away all “original sin.” Typically, mostly Christian families practice this ceremony, although anyone is free to participate. Close family members are encouraged to attend and be there in support of the milestone in the child’s life.

Following a Christening, the parents of the child will usually throw a reception or party where close friends and family can convene, eat, and have an all-around respectable good time. If you’re planning on having a Christening reception, try any of these ideas to help make it as memorable and fun as it can be.

Have A Guest Book For People To Sign

One of the biggest downfalls of a Christening is the child might be too young to actually remember what’s going on when it comes time to reminisce later in life. By putting a guest book at the entrance for the party, you allow people to write a little message for the child of honor. They can read those messages later in life when they’re old enough to keep the information.

Dress The Child Of Honor To Success

Nothing is cuter than a child wearing adult-like clothing. Everyone in attendance will be dressed to impress, why shouldn’t the child? Dress your child in a nice dapper suit, or extravagant dress to make your event memorable and to also improve the quality of photographs.

Give Out Unique Party Favors

Party favors are almost a given for most events these days. You can give these out to your guests so they can celebrate your event with something fun. You can do so many things when it comes to party favors. For a Christening, you can give out party favors that are specific to the child. If the child is a boy you can give out candy bars with blue wrappers, and if she’s a girl you can give out a mixture of bubbles with their name on the bottle. The possibilities are endless.
