Christening Reception/Decoration and Finishing Touches

Whether you are having your reception at home or in a function room, a few key decorative items can really liven the place up, hide unwanted or unsightly areas and make all the difference to the atmosphere of your celebration.


As simple or as complex as you want them to be, use flowers to continue a style or theme or add a splash of color

Simple structural flowers such as gerberas, sunflowers can look contemporary without being too adult. Pretty English flowers such as freesias, peonies and roses can be used to complement a more traditional style celebration.  

Bunting, Garlands & Banners

Quickly liven up even the most uninspiring room or venue with garlands or banners.  Colorful fabric bunting looks fabulous draped round the garden for a summer party at home - perfect for a shabby chic or vintage look. Paper lanterns dotted around the room or hanging from tree branches are an inexpensive way of adding color and interest.

For a fun and economical way of brightening up your party, create your own custom printed personalized banner.

Table Decoration

Simple posies or balloons look great as table centerpieces for a sit down lunch or to brighten up the buffet table. Don’t forget a table plan and place names for a formal seating arrangement.

Favors and Party Bags

"Bomboniere" or almond favors originated in France and Italy centuries ago and were traditionally given to the female guests at weddings and christenings.  The five sugared almonds symbolize health, wealth, fertility, happiness and long life.  These days, favors can be any small gift.

Christening Gown Trends

Increasingly popular is a return to what was. The Christening gown is of no exception when it comes to following the trends. This trend is especially evident in clothing and furniture as individuals opt for distressed and antique finishes, or flashback clothing that reminds you of hideous outfits you used to wear. Your baby’s Christening gown should be an extension of your baby, your family and your faith; therefore, it is ultimately up to you whether or not you follow what the “experts” say is the hot new trend.

Traditionally, a Christening gown was made up of many layers because one layer was used so that the baby’s name could be embroidered on the inside. The gown would then be passed on from generation to generation and each baby’s name would be embroidered on the inside. If you are considering purchasing a Christening outfit or gown for the purpose of passing it down throughout the generations, then this idea is a beautiful sentimental reminder of babies who have all worn the gown in the past.

Most gowns today are white, however, you will find some gowns that have colors added to them in the form of pink ribbons, or blue bows. If people have trouble distinguishing whether your baby is a boy or girl, then a touch of color might help eliminate that annoying question!

Also popular is a christening gown that is hand tailored with material from the mother’s wedding dress. If you are not too attached to your dress then this idea is perfect if you are creating a Christening outfit or gown that is to become your family heirloom. Tailors can add elegant laces, soft fabrics and heirloom sewing techniques to make the gown a unique entity that will be part of your family for years to come.

Whether the Christening gown is made of Cotton Swiss Batiste, Swiss Organdy, Irish Linen, Silk Batiste, Silk Organza or English Netting, you are bound to fall in love with the finish and texture of the material. These fabrics ensure the gown looks fit for a prince or princess. If you happen to come across Christening outfits made from these materials, rest assured you are getting the best money can offer.

A baby’s Christening Day is important on both a spiritual and social level. Finding the right Christening gown is not that difficult as there are a variety of stores offering and gowns to suit any style and any budget. Consider opting for a Christening dress or gown that can become an heirloom piece and start your own trend within the family!

How to Make Christening Invitations

By eHow Parties & Entertaining Editor

A christening is another word for a baptism or a welcoming of a newborn into a Christian faith. Depending on your family, a christening may be the first time your entire family gets together to meet and welcome your new baby. If you're having a christening, you may be wondering about invitations.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Step by Step:

Step 1

Decide if you want to make hand-made invitations or personalized invitations printed off your computer. If you want invitations printed off your computer, websites such as Blue Mountain Cards and MakeOwnInvitations can help you.

Step 2

Choose whether you want folded christening invitations (with a message on the outside and inside) or two-sided invitations (messages on both sides). Two-sided invitations may be easier to create.

Step 3

Think about using a picture of your baby on the outside or the inside of a folded invitation. This is a great way to personalize the invitation.

Step 4

Consider using Christian symbols as you create your christening invitations. Look at preprinted invitations for ideas.

Step 5

Budget carefully. If you are using lace, stencils, tissue paper and beads on your invitations, the costs will quickly rise. If your budget is small, keep your invitations simple.

Step 6

Stick to basics. Remember, you have a new baby in the house and probably don't have a great deal of time to create complex invitations. Include your baby's name, the family name, RSVP information and date, place and time on the invitation. Consider putting small maps inside the envelopes before you mail the invitations. Invite your friends and family to contact you for further information about the christening.
