You are about to welcome a new addition to your life, and you have been making plans for a christening. While winter may seem like an odd time for such celebrations, winter can also be a perfect season for baby christening.
In this article, we will discuss the steps you need to take in order to plan a successful and beautiful winter christening. So, let’s get started!
Perhaps one of the most important aspects of planning a winter christening is selecting the celebration venue. It’s best to choose an indoor venue that is heated to ensure you and your guests will be comfortable. It is also important to consider the time of day when planning your event.
Mid-morning or afternoon would be ideal, especially in the wintertime, as it will be warmer and make for more ideal conditions. Once you have these details figured out, you can send out the invitations. Check out our free christening invitation download!
Food Ideas for Winter Christening
Buffet-style food that allows guests to help themselves may be the best dining choice for the celebration. Cold food options can include pre-made sandwiches, cold cuts and cheese for a DIY sandwich-building station, fresh fruits and vegetables, and colorful salads, which always make great dishes.
Alternatively, if you want hot foods, make sure your venue has access to outlets to keep food warm in electric food warmers or check your venue’s rules to see if you can have chafing dishes to ensure your guests can have a nice warm meal when they come in from the cold weather.
What to Wear for a Winter Christening
Apart from selecting an appropriate heated indoor venue, the next most important thing to consider when planning a winter christening is clothing. Carriage Boutique carries a beautiful line of warm long pant and sleeve christening outfit options.
Additionally, consider accessorizing your baby to ensure they stay nice and warm on their special day. Check out this luxurious quilted christening blanket or this embroidered christening bonnet that can double as a priceless keepsake for generations to come.
Planning a winter christening can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. With the right decorations, food selection, and invitees it can become an eventful occasion full of memories! Consider planning out your christening in advance by preparing invitations and reserving a venue for your guests.
Don’t forget about decorations too; put together a festive atmosphere with lighted snowflakes or natural elements like pine branches to spruce up the space. Most importantly, remember that this event is all about celebrating the new arrival so don’t stress too hard over little details - just enjoy the moment!
