Christening Decorations Boy

Trying to pick out christening decorations that will make or break that special day for a little boy isn't easy. There are so many options and so much to choose from that knowing what will work together, what kinds of things you need and so on can be confusing to the point of overwhelming.

Well, there are a few simple steps you can take before you even begin shopping that can help to make the difference between success and failure.

Choose a Colour Scheme

The first thing you should consider is what colour scheme will be used. Colour has significant influence on the overall feeling of the venue once decorated and any colours present should be chosen for a reason and not just allowed to happen by accident. Traditionally baby blue is the colour of choice for boys, but is this really the best colour? In truth it has been overused quite a bit, and since blue is a cool colour, too much of it can really make a place seem lonely and cold. Sometimes a better option may be to choose a gender-neutral colour such as lemon, orange or cream – something pale but with a hint of warmth to make people feel comfortable and at ease.

Pick a Motif

A basic symbol or motif of your choosing can really help to unify your christening decorations, especially if you will be purchasing things from many different places as is often the case. Common motifs include the stork, cherubs and angels, butterflies, religious symbols, hearts, etc. Most symbols should work pretty well regardless of your chosen colour scheme, but if you do choose a symbol that requires a certain colour to be recognised for what it is, this should be accounted for in your choice of other colours so as to avoid a clash. Whilst you should strive to have the chosen motif incorporated into many of your decorations, it is also important to avoid overdoing it. Too much of any one thing is never good and may result in your venue feeling too busy, claustrophobic or even cheap and tacky. Subtlety is always best in this department.

Shop Around

Once you have a good idea of what you want in terms of colour scheme, motifs, etc. Then you can begin shopping around to find interesting ways of applying your choices or for the best deal available. There are many companies that provide an all-in-one service which in some cases may work out cheaper, although you can still obtain individual decoration elements separately should you choose to and since it is usually possible to do much of the work yourself if you have the time this can save you quite a bit of money. Now that you have your design decisions set, coordinating christening decoration elements from different sources should be a simple task; the colours will match and the theme will be cohesive. If you really take the time to shop around and do whatever you can do yourself, even the most humble of christening budgets can turn out a beautiful venue for that extra special day.
