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.
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.
