  • Choose the attire. Your little one will be the star of the show on such a special day. Therefore, their attire should be chosen with care. Remember, babies grow quickly.

Typically, long garments, embellished with embroidery and trim, appropriate for either a boy or a girl, are chosen.
  • Decorate your space. From simple and chic to bold and extravagant, there are certainly no limitations when it comes to decorating for your child’s Christening.
