Five fabulous Christening ideas at Christmas time


With friends and family gathered in one place, baubles twinkling on the tree and the baby wrapped up warm in a gorgeous christening outfit, Christmas is a magical time to have a christening. If you are thinking about getting your little one christened at Christmas, take a look at the following five ideas to help make this special occasion even more magical and memorable.

Beautiful in white

White is a colour synonymous with both the snowy landscape of Christmas as well as the virtue of a christening. This time of the year is therefore the perfect time to really go to town by adorning your little one in a gorgeous white outfit, that’s in-keeping with both the time of year and the special occasion.

A Christmas theme

Many christenings have a distinct theme attached to them. For example, in 2013 the trend was to have a butterfly-inspired christening theme. Well at Christmas, the theme is already decided for you! Pull out all the stops by having a festive-filled christening, brimming with Christmas decorations, mulled wine, gifts for guests and even a turkey and stuffing sandwich or two!

Opt for Christmas entertainment to entertain the youngsters

Christenings are a time to celebrate and bring the whole family together – young and old. Some of the most memorable christenings have plenty of entertainment on offer for children attending the occasion, such as magic shows, storytelling, face painting, and more.

if you’re having a christening at Christmas, opting for festive-themed entertainment would make the occasion that bit more magical and entertaining. For example, having Santa arrive with a sack full of gifts is guaranteed to down well amongst youngsters at a christening at Christmas.

Choose a special venue

When it comes to christenings, the choice of venue is vitally important. Not only should the venue ideally be accessible for family and friends to reach, but the more charming, stylish and charismatic the venue is, the better, particularly at Christmas.

Having your baby christened in enchanting surroundings that boast a cosy and Christmassy vibe, will set a captivating atmosphere for this special event at Christmas.

Think about having the christening at a hotel venue

If you have friends and family travelling far for the christening, having it at a hotel venue would make a lot of sense. A hotel venue would mean yourselves and guests would be able to enjoy the christening to the optimum, before retiring to bed after a busy but thrilling day.
