Planning a Christening

I have been asked to plan an elaborate Christening Party for a beautiful baby boy named Tim. When I looked in his beautiful big blue eyes I knew I had to accept this job and make one very memorable for him and his parents. Tim is just absolutely adorable and behave SO WELL during our initial meeting. I was so amazed! His parents came to me and actually thought that because of the timing and all the planning involved I would have declined working with them and of course I said, "No way Jose, I will be more than happy to help you plan this very important occasion."

Now, the challenge has begun to plan this very special and elaborate Christening Party. Just a couple of months ago I planned my daughter's christening but it was only for 20 guest, mostly family, and it was at home. Totally different from what Timmy's parents want so I have to really put on my thinking cap and make this very memorable. I have to say that I do love the challenge and I'm always ready.

So here are my notes so far...

Invitations and Thank You Cards
Venue (They have a preferred venue, now is time to negotiate)
Balloon Bouquets as centerpieces
Candy Buffet
Custom Cardbox by Marni Gold for all the money gifts, gift cards, etc...
DJ (I know a great one in their area)
Entertainment (for both the adults and the children attending)
Photographer (Also know a great one in their area)

Of course as you all know, although the list seems short there is a lot of shopping, browsing and negotiating to do in a very short period of time. We don't have a set date but we are all estimating this event will beheld at the end of October.

I am keeping little Timmy in mind as I plan this because IT'S HIS PARTY and I want him to have a great time as well as all his guest.
