The Christening of your child is a significant event for many families, and a wonderful celebration to bring people together. I remember fondly the Christening day of each of our children…here is a photo from our youngest child’s Christening in 2017. I believe it is a milestone to be celebrated!
We’ve seen a big trend in recent years for this special occasion to have as much style as a themed birthday party, with one of the most popular trends being a pink and gold colour scheme for girls.
So here’s our finds from our clever LLC Members to help you plan your upcoming Christening for your little girl.

I don’t know too many 58 year olds who inspire 5 year old birthday parties, do you?
But with a portfolio of over 150+ careers and a killer wardrobe, it’s no surprise Barbie has and always will be an inspiration for so many young girls – so why not have a party in her honour?
But how do you choose between rock ‘n’ roll Barbie, Malibu Barbie or Mermaid Barbie?
Think like Barbie and make everything PINK of course!
Barbie party – The Sweet Cart (Perth)
Barbie party styled by Opulenticity Party & Buffet Styling
I was a HUGE Barbie fan when I was little. My all-time favourite was Barbie and the Rockers, which in hindsight would have made a great party theme!
If choosing just one of Barbie’s roles is too hard though, use a Barbie silhouette and stick with PINK as your main colour mixed with with white and black which will achieve the right effect – we’ve found a few ‘accessories’ to help complete the setting from vendors listed on the Life’s Little Celebrations children’s party directory
