Christenings are one of the most significant life events for parents as it’s where they celebrate and welcome their child into the world. Because of this, christenings are often treated as a huge event, which can add unnecessary stress. Achieve a memorable christening and avoid too much stress with these reception ideas from Springfield House:


Choosing a Unique Venue

Select a venue that inspires and can comfortably fit your guests. Finding christening reception venues in Sydney that are easily accessible, conveniently located and can be designed to suit your occasion is a must. Springfield House, for instance, boasts a beautiful function centre and lush greenery that can easily be the backdrop for your reception.


Invest in Quality Catering

Christenings are celebrations, which means serving good food is a must. While hiring a professional caterer can take the stress out of having to plan the food yourself, they can also be quite expensive. When you book Springfield House for a christening, you can choose from our varied selection of 2 – 3 course sit down meals, or buffet catering in Sydney. With different cuisine options, simply select the one that best fits your theme and we will deliver.


Feature a Dessert Station

Dessert stations are often the focal point of christening receptions. But don’t rent just any dessert station. If you are having a themed party, have the dessert station follow that theme by basing its colour and details on it. Put the cake in the centre and style it with flowers and a variety of sweet treats like macarons and cake pops. You can also add a backdrop that’s made from flowers or balloons to make the station as eye-catching as possible.


Follow a Theme

Themed christenings are arguably one of the largest trends today. Ranging from pop-culture to simple seasons and colours, you have an infinite number of options to choose from when deciding on the theme of your child’s christening. Feel free to let the theme reflect on every element of the party, from the invitation and signage to the decor, table numbers and menu. Not a fan of over-the-top celebrations? Stick with the classic blue is for boys and pink is for girls theme. 


Springfield House’s sprawling gardens are great for fairy-themed parties. Our function centre can be easily transformed with the right decorations and details for any number of different theme ideas.
