Why should we give you christening inspiration?

We have been working in the entertainment industry for over 5 years. This means we have been to many places, from the simplest of children’s parties, to grand weddings and even hen dos there is nothing we haven’t seen. After being too countless christenings not only as entertainers but also as guests, we have devised an easy read christening inspiration. Covering areas of decoration, games, entertainment and food – you know that you’re christening will be a truly unforgettable moment.

 

How to book through us

We try and make the booking process as simple as possible. As we all know booking can be the most time consuming and boring thing! When you send an email to either – facepaintingsheffield@gmail.com, you will get a reply asking a few questions such as:

Where is the address of the party?

How many children will be attending (approximately)?
How old are the children?
Are there any other details we should know (will it be a themed party?)

 

Decoration

To make decoration easier we recommend choosing a themed colour; any bright colours (such as blue, yellow, pink) are perfect to start a theme for all your decoration.

 

Sweet jars are not only a photo opportunity but double up as a party bag! A little on the pricey side but sentimental is M&Ms customised –https://www.mms.com/en-gb/configurator?method=load&customerType=B2C

However, a DIY way is to go to your local sweet shop and fill up mason jars with the same coloured sweets.

Another fun decoration is bunting – the best idea we have ever come across consisted of all the guests decorating bunting (On the table was glitter, pens, 3D stickers) The bunting can be put together as a gift for the babies new room.

 

Games

For adults it’s easy all they need to do is sit back and have a chat. Countless times have I seen children nagging their parents because there are no games. Hire out giant noughts and crosses, snakes and ladders, connect 4 and even kerplunk (https://www.sunshineevents.co.uk/giant-games) they not only entertainment children but are also a great ice breaker for children who might not know each other.

However, great games that include the adults are: Bean Bag Bowl Toss, Ring toss game and Big Bananagrams (a personal favourite). Big Bananagrams can be made by customising scrap cardboard (if you are outside) and customising paper (if you are working in a smaller indoor space).

 

Entertainment

Face Painting Sheffield a classic addition to any event, they can modify designs depending on the theme of event (e.g. whinny the poo, unicorns etc). Face painting can be done for all ages and is a great call for a photo opportunity.

Animal Club brings fluffy and reptiles animals to events not only giving children educational information but also lets children hold and experience different things – we’ve also found that children who are normally more nervous around animals can reduce any anxieties.

Australian Aboriginal Art (https://bookschoolworkshops.com/workshop/category-art/australian-aboriginal-art/) – Create Australian Aboriginal Art with an experienced artist and storyteller. This activity is suitable for all ages and abilities. From simple to more advanced techniques our workshops help to get creative and learn about Australian art and history.

 

Food

Arguably the most important thing at any event. Our christening inspiration bake which we have enjoyed the most are cake pops, inspiring them to fit with the overall, colour theme of the christening – https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/cake-pops

Traybakes (https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/collection/traybake) are a great way to feed your guests and keep them satisfied. With the bakes ranging in difficulty and taste there will be something to suit everyone.
