In today’s article, we’re going to be giving you our top tips when planning your Christening in 2021. While you might not be able to invite everyone that you wished, you can still make it a beautiful day that you, your child and your loved ones can cherish for years to come.
Step 1) The Outfit
When Christening your baby, you need to think about the adorable gown. Now that the shops are open, its the perfect opportunity to support your local boutiques who will most likely design you a bespoke gown or outfit, making it one of a kind for your special day as a parent. Failing that, there are plenty of shops online that offer stunningly-made Christening Outfits, we have listed a couple of our favourites below:
Step 2) Decorating Your Venue
Although the main event will take place in your local church, you may want to hold a little get-together outdoors with a few of your family and friends as the day is still nigh. If that is the case, finding the right spot is needed! Whether you decide on your lovely spacious back garden or your village hall, getting the venue right sets the scene and atmosphere of the entire event.
To ensure that Covid-19 precautions are always met, we recommend a lovely outdoor space that offers space and peace of mind for all guests. If this so happens to be in your garden, fear not because you can make it look as stunning as you wish; delivering a memorable day for everyone who attends. Through balloon arches, string decorations hanging along your entire garden and preciously decorated table centrepieces, you can transform your garden’s entire aesthetic.
Step 3) The Cake
Now that you’ve transformed your garden, it’s time to feed your guests. Explore the internet for local catering companies who could really do with the business during this tough time. Whether you decide on afternoon tea or the usual party buffet spread, it’s time to top it off with a cake.
If you’re local to Hull, Kelicious Cakes, a lovely little independent cake maker, creates wonderfully delicious Christening cakes that’ll make for a show-stopping centrepiece for your little one’s big day.
