Thank your guests for attending your christening party---and likely bringing gifts---by sending them home with favours that commemorate the occasion. Choose a favour that is easy to make in bulk, as you don't want favour making to take over your christening party planning. Your favours can reflect the event theme or honour your little one in another way. Look for a favour that your guests will enjoy, whether it's something they can munch on or display in their home.

Edible favours are always a hit---guests will enjoy taking home a snack for themselves or a family member. Choose from baby or christening-themed edible favours for guests. Bake sugar cookies and cover them in white frosting to match the traditional colour of the baby's christening dress. Then, write the baby's name and christening date on the cookie in a pastel frosting like pink or blue. Wrap the cookies in cellophane and tie them closed with a ribbon that matches the frosting. Or, fill cellophane bags with coloured chocolate candies, pink for a girl and blue for a boy. Tie the bags closed with a matching ribbon and include a label that thanks guests for coming to the baby's christening.
A christening celebrates the new life of a baby within a church. Carry this theme of new life to your baby christening favours as well. Purchase miniature terra cotta flowerpots and paint them to match the colour scheme of your christening celebration. For example, paint pink or purple flowerpots for a girl and blue or green flowerpots for a boy. Place small seed packets in the flowerpots, and attach a label that encourages guests to "Watch as your flowers grow just as we watch our baby grow!" Place these flowerpots at the place settings at your party to add a pop of colour to the table or hand them out after the christening ceremony.
A baby's christening is a religious occasion, so religious-themed favours work well for this event. Transform traditional favour ideas into religious-themed items suitable for a baby's christening. Give each guest a votive candle with a cross attached to the front or a label that says something like "Jordan Joseph's Christening, May 1, 2011." If your baby's christening is around the holidays, give guests a Christmas ornament in the shape of a cross or an angel. You can even have the baby's name and christening date engraved on the ornament so that guests can always remember your event.
