Five Great Ideas on How to Plan Christening Parties

Five Great Ideas on How to Plan Christening Parties

The christening of a child is a very special occasion. This is the first step that the baby takes in the world of Christianity and as such, it deserves to be marked and celebrated.

A christening party or a reception, as it is often called, will bring friends, relatives, the parents and the godparents of the child together. Planning a christening reception is not a simple task. The party needs to have special atmosphere and to correspond to the importance of the event.

You can make use of several great ideas when planning a christening party. These simple tips will help you put together the most amazing baby christening event ever.

Keep It Casual and Intimate

A christening party does not have to be flashy. The simpler it is, the better. Christening parties are usually very casual and relaxed, giving a group of people the chance to socialize and to celebrate a very special occasion.

The decorations can be exceptionally plain and minimalist, after all a christening is something far from luxury and vanity. Christening parties usually go without a theme but you can also dedicate it to anything baby-related. Crosses or a biblical theme will be appropriate.

Focus on the menu rather than on decorations. Ornate arches, table centerpieces and expensive tablecloths are unnecessary.

Think of Games

The games selected for a christening reception differ from the activities typical for a baby shower or a birthday party.

Board games will be best for this occasion. Such games give family members a chance to talk to each other while having fun and discussing issues of interest. Card games will also be quite appropriate.

If the reception is held outdoors, you can include sports. Volleyball, basketball, tennis and other sports that will give everyone the chance to participate will be a good selection.

Getting Guests Involved

The party will be extra special if you manage to get the guests involved in some way. Their input will be valuable to the family that is having a child christened.

The simplest option you can make use of is a guestbook. Have it available at the entrance, giving everyone the chance to write down a greeting or a special message. This guestbook will be a delightful souvenir from the christening reception.

Having video messages is another opportunity that you can utilize. You will need a small camera. Ask everyone to dedicate a personal message to the baby or the entire family. This option will give you the chance to create a very touching movie.

Decoration Ideas

Once again, the keyword that should guide all of your organizational activities is “simplicity.”

White is a color that is typically connected to Christianity, purity and innocence. Make it focal to the reception’s interior.

The items you can use include white balloons and white flowers. Refrain from overdoing it. Several centerpieces and delicate wall decorations will do just fine. In case the reception is held in the evening, you can make use of white candles.

Hold the Reception Immediately After the Christening

It will be easiest and most appropriate to hold the reception immediately after the baptism. Guests will be in a festive mood and you can extend the celebration.

Many churches have special halls that can be rented for special occasions. This makes it very convenient for you to hold the reception immediately after the baptism. Guests will be freed from the obligation to travel to another venue right after going to the church.

These are the basics of planning a christening party. It can be very simple, yet effective. Focus your efforts on creating intimate atmosphere. All other aspects of the reception hold secondary importance.
