Christening Celebrations - One Small Child

Christening Celebrations

No doubt about it, when it comes to planning your christening or other special occasion, there is a lot to think about! Personally, I find myself easily overwhelmed at the idea of putting a big event together, and the perfectionist in me feeds the procrastinator…which turns into its own vicious cycle. {wink}

If you’re like me, the best place to begin is to take a bit of time and think about what is most important to you, envision how you want this special day to look and feel, find some inspiration (like these photos from Christi at P is for Party!, who featured this absolutely gorgeous christening and adoption celebration) and then make a list of the details that are most important to you. Figure out your time frame, make a budget and an actionable checklist and dig in! Enlist the help of willing family and friends, do what you can do, and most important, remember to relax and enjoy your special day.

When it comes down to it, the activities and events you plan are closely tied to tradition. Each family and culture has its own style of entertaining and celebrating special events. The amount of planning and preparation involved in these gatherings is directly proportional to that style and covers a broad spectrum. Is your style impromptu, no-frills and laid-back or formal and elegant with minute attention to detail?
