Naming Day Ideas
So many people get stuck for ideas on what to do for a Naming Day. Here are just a couple....
Make it a 'Wish Day'. Get all invited guests to bring a wish for your child, either written into a poem, in a small story, or in a letter, and then compile them into an album for your child to read when they are older.
Choose a theme for the day, perhaps it is Pirates, Princesses, Fairies or even something to do with the origin or the child's name (friends of mine had everyone come dressed in something Hawaiian as their sons name was from Hawaiian origin).
Create a Photo Board of photo's of your child's life so far (and maybe include a Name Meaning certificate or a 'Day You Were Born' certificate as the centre piece).
Create a Memory Album (or buy one from me!) for your child, take photo's of all the guests that attend, and have the guests sign the Memory Album with their wishes.
Have the Godparents choose a reading or poem that is significant to them and relates to the occasion or child.
Have the Godparents light candles to symbolise the guiding light that they will shine for their new Godchild.
