You may plan a small christening ceremony for your child, with only close family members as witnesses. However, you also can throw a christening party to celebrate such a joyous occasion. This may be the first chance your friends will have to welcome your child. Select christening party decorations that work well with your party's theme.
Decorate your party venue with all-white accents for a striking look that is simple and inexpensive. Hang white crepe paper from the ceiling. Tie white ribbons around chandeliers and vases. Place a big white bow on the front door, and drape thick white ribbon or crepe paper around the jamb. Set the tables with white china and white napkins tied in white ribbon. Decorate the tables with white flowers in clear vases. Light white pillar candles on the fireplace mantle. Give your guests matching party favours. Fill clear containers with bubble solution and tie a thin white ribbon around the top.
Throw a charming teddy bear picnic for your child's christening party. Decorate a wreath with small stuffed bears. Hang the teddy wreath on your front door. Scatter teddy bears throughout your party venue--tie a balloon to each bear's paw. Hold the meal outside. Use vintage clothes. Use old-fashioned picnic baskets as centrepieces. Surround the baskets with teddy bears. Bake cookies shaped like teddy bears and place them in teddy bear cookie jars. Place the cookie jars on a side table. Send guests home with a teddy bear cookie cutter and a small jar of honey.
Stretch out cotton batting until it looks like cloud. Hang the batting from the ceiling for an angel-themed party. Paint or stencil your child's name on a white canvas banner. Use stencils to paint small angels and clouds around the baby's name. Hang the banner over the front door. Create angel wings out of cardboard. Paint the wings white and attach them to white and gold balloons. Decorate your tables with white tablecloths and angel figurines. Create halo-shaped napkin holders out of gold chenille stems. Give your guests small angel figurines as party favours.
Sunshine and Flowers
Throw an outdoor or garden party. Decorate the tables with sunflowers in tall clear vases. Attach blue and yellow balloons to small pots of flowers. Hang yellow fabric banners with the baby's name across the yard. Give guests sunglasses, small decorative pots and packages of flower seeds.
Celebrate your baby's christening with a tea party. Hang bunting made from vintage fabrics across the room. Set the tables with vintage china and white lace tablecloths. Place honey and lemons in small crystal jars. Place small flower bouquets in miniature vases around the party venue. Send each guest home with a selection of tea bags and a pretty cup--use the party favours as decorations until your guests get ready to leave.
