Christenings, also known as baptisms, are celebrations of faith. While not exactly austere, these joyous occasions often end with a celebratory meal after the person, usually a child, completes the religious rite.
Why settle for an ordinary christening party when you can make it extraordinary? It’s time to put your party planner hat on—here are a few ideas on how to celebrate life, family, and faith by throwing an amazing christening party.
When people think of christening party venues, they imagine venue halls and restaurants. While both are convenient venues, they can be a bit boring. Plus, some locations may restrict you with the kinds of activities you can do, the number of guests you can have, and the food you serve.
It’s time to think beyond the roof and consider outdoor spaces. Having a garden party can help you and your guests feel less cramped and more relaxed. You can even have a party in an open field if your guest list is quite long. If you’re worried about the weather, you can always hire a marquee venue to protect against the elements.
One of the least chaotic activities a kid can do is colour. Go and set up a small art corner with colouring pages and non-toxic art supplies. Make sure they have enough space to get creative.
You can go the edible route if you want to be more eco-friendly and don’t want to print out colouring pages. Biscuit decorating is a fun, artistic activity that kids love. When you don’t have the time to bake the biscuits, buy a packet from the shops or your local bakery. There are even DIY biscuit decorating kits available online.
When you have far too many kids attending the party, DIY arts and crafts can be costly and may not be enough for everyone. It’s time to bring in the big guns—the bouncy castle.
You can hire a bouncy castle, have people set it up, and let your small guests enjoy it throughout the party. After the party, let the staff deflate it and bask in the convenience of it all.
One activity that can bring out the kid in everyone is the giant games. Think massive Connect Fours, Kerplunk, and Snakes and Ladders.
Many giant games are available for hire, so you don’t have to worry about making everything. But if you can also buy a few massive games to connect with your family, make sure you have the storage space for them.
If you are the designated christening party planner, you should always remember to prepare great food and drinks. You can have your favourite restaurant cater the occasion. You can also prepare simple finger foods people can pick up when they’re feeling a bit peckish.
When you want to make this a memorable party for the kids, you can hire a candy floss machine for the day. It will surely provide delicious treats for kids and kids at heart, and candy floss can be entertaining to watch.
Christening parties are wonderful celebrations of family, culture, and faith that tend to be forgettable—but it doesn’t have to be. You can find little ways to make it an enjoyable and memorable event for everyone involved. If party planning has you overwhelmed, don’t worry. There are party planners who can make all your party planning worries go away.
