If you're organising a christening for a young child then the chances are that the guests you'll be inviting will have young children too. This means that when you're considering what to do for the party you really need to think about children's entertainment and how you are going to make sure that they have a good time as well as their parents.
One of the things you can do is hire a children's entertainer to be there for the day, or at least part of it. When you come to look up different children's entertainers in your area the chances are that there will be different ones for you to choose from. This is great news because it means that whatever you are looking for you can be sure there is something to suit you and your needs. You could go for a clown, a magician, a balloon modeller or simply someone that can organise children's party games. Think about the average age of the children that are going to be in attendance and go from there.
Of course you could always have a set of your own party games arranged. You'll need someone to oversee them and make sure that they run smoothly but if you have the space then a game of parcel the parcel or pin the tail on the donkey can go down really well.
You really can't go far wrong with music and a disco, because it will get the children up dancing and having fun. You can either just play your own playlist through the PA system or you can hire a DJ, the choice is yours.
If you have an outside area then you could look at hiring a bouncy castle or other outside party games - if the weather is nice! This will get children outside, running around and burning off energy, which is bound to keep them happy.
