Baby’s christening party ideas

By ConderKaz 29 September 2009 24

We’re looking at having our baby christened at the end of the year but we don’t know where to have the ‘after party’. We’ve got a lot of friends with small children and as this is our first child we don’t have any toys or play equipment at our home. We like the idea of having it at a party, like Kambah Adventure Park, Fadden Pines or Gordon Park but we’re worried about the weather. Does anyone know if it’s ok to put a marque up at any of these locations or is there an alternative venue that could be suitable?

What’s Your opinion?

Well said busgirl.I agree completely.
I think some of the comments did start out tongue-in-cheek..but somewhere along the way the sense of humour was lost!

Well done busgirl. You took the words right out of my mouth.

…ummm…conderkaz merely asked for “baby’s christening party ideas”…if she wanted your opinions on whether or not to christen her own child she probably would have posted “I need you nosey butt-heads to tell me how to raise my child” instead.

I always seem the odd one out, but for me to claim I was ever religious came from within, certainly not from my mother’s indoctrination.

You see, my mum is Catholic, but wasn’t practising at all when my brother and I were born, not even married in a church. Then we had a fire that caused the death of my brother and the priest was called, also to baptise me because I was in a bad way too (was the done thing).

We then had nothing to do with the church, closest thing being the Salvo’s who helped us out greatly till my dad was killed a couple of years later and mum got his insurance.

But into my schooling at Maribynong primary, into year one, I became restless and was complaining alot to my mum that I was understimulated and was sick of just colouring in, so mum’s friend (my Godmother) suggested going to the same school as them, St Vincents in Aranda, a big improvement for me and I somewhat embraced religion for some time. By time I had got to year 6, I questioned it all. I still recieved my confirmation, but with two minds (and a big case of everyone else was doing it).

By time i was in year 9, I was sick to death of it all (Merici was hardcore religion).

I baptised my three girls into the same religion and the same primary school, because I had a feeling they would embrace it too (I just stand in the background and support them).. They have been fine and know the other side quite honestly and if they didn’t marry in a church or baptise their kids, I couldn’t care less!

I honestly wasn’t drawn to any of it with my son though. But I was keen to baptise him in the beginning and it was his dad to talk me out of it and I settled on that and haven’t had any regrets.

It’s definitely not bad to have knowledge either way and the choice isn’t always shallow selfishness on the parent’s parts.
