Need some help with christening


hello all

its baby's christening next month and im doing a few things myself but running out of ideas.
im doing the invitations, some bracelets with the theme colour (yellow) and a little cross hanging off it for the guests, and ill be decorating my back yard where we will have catering for 80 people and i need ideas on how to decorate it.
the actual theme is yellow ducks but im also using yellow flowers/balloons/boats anything! the original idea was to put loads of ducks in the swimming pool (rubber) i have those, and some floating flowers in yellow. im also going to tie yellow ribbon around the tree and gate, yellow napkins and a few yellow tablecloths.
now i need more ideas for decorating, for example what can i put in the tree? i was going to do floating candles but it will be 12pm so they wont show.

any help?

You could make bunting for the tree:

You could have a pinata for the kids (or adults who like to act like kids!).

Maybe a few nice pictures of your baby on the table.

Hope this helps.

Thanks i was actually thinking about pictures of the baby on the table but was unsure about how to go about it. i mean i can print them out on card for example but then what? how do i present them? and there will be long rows of tables so i will need a few. or maybe i can use his pics in decoration. i even have a whole album on the computer i took of him in yellow and with ducks so i have nice ones.

If you're going to put flowers out would you be able to print out some photos on card then attach them standing up so they form a triangular or square 3d shape and put the vase in the middle of them?
