This precious sheep themed Sofia's Christening was submitted by Tamiris Ramos of Era uma Vez.   Tamiris Ramos about planning the party:   Sheeps are religious symbols.

Although this happens after the christening, it can be a really nice touch to send out thank you cards after the event. The chances are that the guests to your christening will bring your son/daughter a gift, so you'll want to thank them.   Thank You Card Designs   You can opt for just standard thank you cards and write out a little thank you note inside each one. The chances are you won't have time to personalise each card because you'll have so many to send, but a standard thank you message can be enough. If you want to…

A baby’s Christening is a very special occasion, and parents will often like to celebrate the occasion by hosting a Christening party to commemorate the day. However, Christening parties are unlike regular birthday or Christmas parties because you only ever have one in your life, not one each year!   Normally, it is quite acceptable to decorate your party table with disposable table cloths and paper napkins, and these days you can choose a wide range of beautifully designed themed tableware suitable for all tastes. But for something as special as a Christening party, you really want to make it…

Buying a perfect Christening gift can cause you a dilemma. Traditionally family members will select a present that is quite often more commemorative and decorative than practical, so the gift can be kept and treasured for many years as a memento of the day.   Bearing in mind that the child is still so young, they really wouldn’t appreciate an elaborate gift that they would have trouble playing with. Usually the gift given is more ornamental, and most commonly made from silver, although you don’t have to stick with tradition if you don’t want to.   The parents may well…
If you are in charge of decorating a room or hall for a christening party then one of the nicest things you can do is decorate with your homemade decorations. When you make your own decorations you ensure that the party hall/room looks different and unique.

When you choose to make your own you can put your own spin on things and ensure that they are perfectly tailored to the event at hand - which can help to make…
