Tips on How to Throw a Stylish Christening
Send out beautiful stylish invitations well before the event. Include a dress code, smart casual or formal!! The bigger the outfit the more special the occasion.
A traditional christening gown for your child. A knee length dress with matching coat for the mother, just think wedding style. A smart suit for the father – not his work one. Have some beautiful muslins to protect you and your child from any baby goo. See www.christeningessentials.com for beautiful gowns.
Keep it simple and elegant, marquee on your lawn, hotel etc. Make sure everything is coordinated and elegant, no paper plates or banners, beautiful white linen and white china works well.
Either have the celebration at a venue or hire waiters, you want to be with your guests not serving them. If you are on a budget, like most of us, give friends and family specific jobs, so you share the load and can all enjoy the celebration.
Follow the rules for a wedding, if it is a seated reception, make sure the people who sit next to each other, like each other.
Have an organized plan for the reception, so that the guests are always entertained, and don’t let it go on for too long.
You will probably have a lot of children attending, have goodie bags at the table to keep them entertained while you are eating, the other parents will appreciate this greatly. If your budget can stretch to it maybe an entertainer for the children.
Good luck and have fun! Enjoy one of the most beautiful days in your baby’s life!
