In recent years, parents have started to take their babies’ christenings very seriously; and rightly so, because they are a very serious event.
The christening of a child is a parent’s way of introducing their baby to the world and into their religion so it’s an event that most parents will want to share with close friends and family.
That’s why organising a christening has started to become similar to organising a wedding, in that you need to start early if you want to ensure that you can plan the perfect day for your baby.
Sending out christening invitations is really important at the early stages as you want to ensure that your guests get the date in their diary. There are plenty of different christening invitations to choose from, so you can pick something to suit you, your baby or the tone of the event.
Once you have the christening invitations, it might be a good idea to stock up on matching thank you cards; these can be used to thank the guests for their attendance or their gifts.
Once you have these initial things in place, you will start to find it easier to organise your baby’s christening.
It feels like a strange concept; to be planning a celebration and occasion for someone who can have no input into the decisions made. But that’s exactly what happens when it comes to planning a christening.
However, when you have decided to plan the christening for your child, there are certain things you can do to make sure that the event is personal to them.
Firstly, you should choose your colour theme depending upon your baby. So for a girl, you might want to choose a pink and white theme. For a boy, a blue and white theme might be more appropriate or you could choose a yellow colour scheme if you want something more neutral.
When it comes to christening invitations, again, you should be inspired by your baby, but there are also a lot of options to choose from to suit different circumstances. For example, if you have twins, then there are christening invitations to suit these circumstances and the same for triplets.
The same beautiful designs are available no matter what your circumstances. But when arranging your baby’s christening, make sure that they inspire you so that you create the perfect day for them.
There are some points in your life that are really special. For example, when you get engaged, when you get married and when you get pregnant.
So if one of your friends has recently told you that she is pregnant, then you may wish to organise a celebration so that all of her friends can get together to celebrate her happy news.
Baby showers started off over in America, but as with so many things, the tradition has found its way over the shores and plenty of people in Britain now choose to hold baby showers.
So if one of your friends is pregnant, then it might be a lovely idea to organise a baby shower for her. It doesn’t need to be anything elaborate, just a little get together of her friends with a few drinks and perhaps some food too.
At the baby shower, you could present your friend with gifts to prepare her for motherhood. And a great gift to give is a baby photo album. Baby photo albums become invaluable for new parents. As they watch their little bundle of joy grow up quickly, they will rely on these albums to keep their memories alive.
Baby showers can be really lovely occasions that you remember forever; what better way to celebrate your friend’s happy news.
