Christening decoration ideas for baby boys
You’ve survived the first few tiring and emotional months as a parent to your gorgeous baby boy and it’s time to plan his Christening.
The service in your local parish church will be traditional, reverential and full of joy. The vicar or priest will guide that aspect of your special day, the christening party is up to you!
A Christening party – what you will need.
- A venue. Home, a pub, the local village hall or a function room. A lot depends on space and guest numbers. Consider how you will decorate, cater to your guests and a sensible budget.
- A theme. Pick a colour, style or character. Christening theme ideas are only limited by your imagination.
- Christening tableware. Christening napkins, christening paper plate, tablecloths, and cups.
- Decorations. If you are dressing a large function room think big and bold to make an impact.
- Christening cake. Traditionally, at least one layer of the christening cake should be the fruit layer of your wedding cake. This might not be possible or practical so pick the type of cake you love most. Me? I’d choose red velvet.
- Christening favours. It’s a lovely idea to give your guests a small gift to remember the day by.
