Meet Kellen! This happy little guy was christened this past Fall when he was 5 months old wearing the Harrison Jumpsuit & Sweater Set. His mom, Victoria, shared a few photos of getting Kellen dressed and also shared details about his christening! She shared the steps that she took to plan the event, the search for the perfect christening outfit and suggestions for other parents as they start planning their child’s special day.
What did you like about Kellen’s Harrison outfit?
I absolutely loved the entire outfit. It was unique and just precious overall!
Before you started looking for a christening outfit, did you already have a design or color in mind that you wanted?
I knew that I wanted a romper for my boy with a slight blue color in it. My church did not have any specific requirements pertaining to the christening outfit.
What do you plan to do with Kellan’s Christening Outfit now that the event is over?
I plan on displaying it in his room.
How old was Kellen when he was christened?
My baby boy was 5 months old and this is around the age I baptized my other children.
How far in advance did you start planning your event? What were the first steps you took?
I started at the end of July. I coordinated the date with the Godparents first and then the church. Next I picked out the cake, flower arrangements, invitations and ordered those then started looking for a christening outfit.
Did you have a celebration after the christening ceremony?
We had a luncheon at a local restaurant.
Was there a theme to your event/decor?
I didn’t have a theme other than incorporating baby blue color schemes for everything, along with white.
How many family & friends celebrated with you?
We had 45 other guests along with our family.
Do you have any suggestions for other parents as they start planning their child’s christening?
I suggest making lists of the necessary things to be done and things to purchase. Then they should start shopping around for options. Most of all I suggest that they purchase one of your christening gowns. I previously purchase my now 2yr old toddler’s gown from you.
Looking back, was there a favorite moment from the day?
I loved it when I turned my baby around and he faced the Holy Water. He looked at it and became excited for this “bath” and as babbling with excitement. It brought smiles to everyone’s faces.
Thank you, Victoria, for sharing Kellen’s Christening with us ❤
