well we had a christening it was a fab day all the kids , lee and keeleys godmother all got christened that day. we had a party cake the lot. we had the do at home and it turned out fab. i did all my own food and it wasn't too expensive either. my mum made a fruit cake and it looked fab. i looked for a pic too suzi but i dont think there is one sorry
We haven't had a christening because I'm not Christian and besides I want Daniel to choose for himself when he's older. I've been to quite a lot of christenings which mostly comprised of the service and then either drinks at a local pub or back to the house for a buffet which does usually involve a cake, yes.
We'd prefer a naming day just because we have a clash in faiths, but its the same principal without the religious side of things.
i've read some really nice ideas about asking the guests to write a wish for the child for the future to put in a box when they arrive. do you think thats too difficult if we're doing it for two children?
theres so much to think about its a bit overwhelming.
We had a traditional catholic christening, Evan has 4 godparents who are already a huge part of his life and are the kind of people who will always be there for him.
After the service we had hired a room in the church hall which was set away from everyone else. There was a bar downstairs that people could go to if they wanted and I provided a buffet and fruit juices etc. We had a 2 tier sponge cake that I had made and a sweetie cake for the kdis. In all there were around 60 people but we didn't want it just to be a booze fest and Evan to be forgotten so we only hired the room till 3pm so people didn't get too drunk and afterwards our immediate families came back to the house for the evening.
