September has been a busy time for the All About ME team. Little Charlie Merrick was Christened in the presence of all of his family and friends at Kelsall Church. What a lovely day, with the sun shining all day long.
The obligatory party took place after the ceremony in our Giant Hat Tipis complete with fire pit, marshmallows and tasty afternoon tea provided by Horseradish Catering.
The Tipis looked beautiful thanks to the Bunting Queen and Pretty Little Trio, and of course the pictures of Charlie dotted around.
This was the first Christening that All About ME have had in the tipis. The Giant Hats are regularly used for weddings, but they aren’t the first thing that everyone would think of when organising a christening. People tend to stay fairly traditional when it comes to naming ceremonies, baptism, bah mitzvahs and christenings. But as we have just discovered the Tipis make the perfect atmosphere for such a special occasion and the kids absolutely loved running around inside. We had children’s play area complete with ball pool which kept the babies and older ones entertained for the whole day.
The venue also provided a great background for the photographs. As did the beautiful St Andrews Church. James and Samantha scrubbed up pretty well too but Charlie definitely stole the show. What a cutie!
