Christening ideas

Yes, you read that correctly – these are brownies but aren’t sweet, instead they’re full of the tasty goodness of spinach, tanginess of cheddar cheese and an added bonus of onion. This is another recipe that lends itself to change very well; I usually like to boost the flavour with some garlic and extra cheese.      Ingredients   (Makes 24)     *280g spinach, rinsed and torn to your choice of size *235ml milk *125g plain flour *1 tsp of salt *1 tsp baking powder *2 eggs *115g melted butter *1 onion, chopped *224g cheddar or mozzarella cheese *Optional:…
Meatballs as a main course would be perfect for a christening. The meatballs are light and fluffy and also taste great with spaghetti and tomato sauce, or all on their own.

The godchild’s hand or foot print has long been among the most popular christening gifts for godparents. These imprints, incidentally, are also an heirloom that the parents would like to have, as well as the children themselves once they grow up. In time, they too - having become big men or women - can be so touched by this small keepsake in which their little hand or foot is forever immortalized, that they are brought to tears. Parents who are caught in the never-ending circle of work and worries often entrust production of such a keepsake to professionals - artists,…
If you don’t think it will be interesting enough to just eat and drink during the christening party, you can prepare a few games that can be played at the table. If you see that the get-together is getting boring, you can entertain the guests by offering to play a game or two, without even leaving your seats. The games that are the most appropriate and the most fun are the ones that are directly related to the most important participant of the celebration – the baptized child.   The “I Promise” Game. This game is meant for adults, and…
Surprised that hornets make honey? And delicious honey, at that! Only it’s not hornet legs that work when making it, but the industrious hands of men and women. Well, well, so it turns out you can make this delicacy yourself! And it’s the perfect treat for your christening guests. Hornet honey served at a christening is even called “baby’s porridge”. Though it is definitely not recommended to feed this kind of porridge to your little one – you should wait until he or she turns at least 21, since it is… spirituous!   Interested? I’ll tell you a few secrets…
This precious “Sweet angel baptism party theme” was submitted by  Julia Herzog of Festa com Gosto.   This is what Julia said about planning the party:    This was a christening/baptism dinner party for a darling 4 months old baby princess called Maria Antonia. The family lives in a small town where everybody knows everyone, so they got a spa hotel owner to close the indoor pool area just for their celebration, given that it was during the low season. The location and the view were incredible so it was a real inspiration for the color palette on the decorations.…
Just like with any large family celebration, one of the most important things of organizing a christening is planning the budget.  It’s useful to think out and write down a detailed allocation of funds by making a preliminary estimate for the celebration. Seeing the figures on paper will be much more convenient that keeping them in your head; this way you can be sure that you didn’t miss anything and you will see how much preparations for the christening will cost you.   Planning will go much more smoothly once you have a list of your planned expenses; you will…
