Sacraments are officially bigger than Ben Hur. Gone are the days of Christenings celebrated as a simple backyard BBQ. We now welcome (with open arms) events that take your breath away. Floral installments that WOW, Cakes that make you salivate and Entertainment to keep you occupied for hours. You know it’s big when you’re buying a new outfit for every new Christening event (especially if it’s with Navarra).
One thing that has caught our attention as a trend that has been around, and one that is expected to last, is that of over-styled cake backdrops with simpler styling for the tables. This trend begun when sacraments started becoming the next big thing, and have stayed. Now, it’s all about HOW you style it to be different than everyone else.
Just like a wedding, and its bridal table as the focus, there’s only so many themes and designs you can come up with before your event-feature-point starts mirroring prior Christenings. It’s essential you stay original and unique.
PRO TIP: Considering that this trend is here to stay, it’s important that you ensure your event is memorable. Chose something personal to you and your child. Whether it was something you noticed more so than others when you’re with your child, or a colour/theme that they personally adore, pick something as a style guide that is unique to you. Try an olive themed Christening with deep greens and olive trees or how about a butterfly event? With hanging butterflies (or real ones?).
Whatever the theme, get in touch with our Events Couture styling team to ensure your Christening is one of a kind. Call us today or head to our website to find out more.
