If you'll be celebrating your baby's christening soon, decorate for the celebration you'll have with friends and family after the religious ceremony. Christening-related table decor will not only make the dining area more appealing, but will serve as an elegant reminder of the reason for the gathering.
Traditionally, it's acceptable to use white for christening decorations, since this colour represents newness and purity. However, you can complement the white tablecloth or flowers on the table with gold and silver accents for an elegant touch. For instance, put a bouquet of white roses in a gold vase, or scatter silver confetti against the white tablecloth.
Choose christening table decor that is noticeable, but not overwhelming. For instance, if you've invited a small number of guests and have a square table, a small flower arrangement or collection of rosaries adorned with rose petals is ideal. For a larger space, decorate the main table with a large paper cutout or ceramic replica of a cross or a pair of ceramic doves, as these are symbols of Christianity and peace.
Be sure that your christening table decor is especially memorable. For instance, enlarge a photo of your baby and frame it in a gold or silver frame to serve as the table centrepiece. You can also decorate the table with a banner in white, gold and silver that displays the baby's name and the date of the christening.
