I know Christenings are nowehere near as big as Weddings on a planning scale, and they are also most usually never given as much thought as I have given to Cameron's. But, as an events student who is about to start her own business up properly, I want everything to be perfect for my little boy's big day!
I had a little surge today and bought the paper plates, plastic cups and bowls and some serviettes (in cream, of course!). I also arranged for the cupcakes to be made in cream and lilac with my friend Kirsty who has her own Catering Company. I had a 'meeting' with Cameron's daddy and we finalised the guest list. We have around 50 people coming between us! I also bought balloons, a banner and some blue christening confetti for my mum's flat, and have put together a photo display with photos of me, Cameron's daddy and Cameron himself for above where the guestbook is going to be.

I found a gorgeous handmade personalised guestbook on eBay and it is being sent out this week. I love keeping memories and will be making sure everyone writes something in the book, along with photos so he can look back on the day when he is older. I have a lot planned for this week, to make sure everything goes as planned at the weekend. I am meeting with the Vicar and his replacement in the week as he is unable to make the service himself as he is out of town, I will be taking my official photographer Carl Lewis along with me so he can have a look around the Church before Sunday. I will also be going shopping for some crisps, sweets and chocolatey things before the weekend to add to the cupcakes and tea, coffee and soft drinks.

Everything is coming together now and I am majorly excited. I am having family come from all over to the Christening, so it's going to be a little hectic by the end of this week, luckily I am having a bit of time out to pamper myself and having my highlights done on Friday afternoon, after way too much regrowth in my opinion! I will also need to fit in having my dress altered, having lost all of the weight I wanted to, the dress I chose a couple of months ago is now way too big!
If you are coming to the Christening, I shall see you there!
If not, make sure you take a look at my Blog next week to read all about how the big day went!
