5 Ways to Commemorate Your Baby’s Naming Ceremony

A baby naming ceremony is a great way of you, your friends and our family coming together to celebrate the birth of your baby.  They come in slightly different variations (Baby Naming parties, Christenings etc.) but despite minor variation, the main aim is simply to welcome the special new edition to your family.  Once the celebrations are over, you might want to find some ways to commemorate your baby’s naming, so we’ve created this helpful guide to help you with some ideas.


Instead of hiding the photos away in an album,
you could create a collage of the best moments.

Well-Timed Blooming Flowers

Use the fact that different flowers come into bloom at different times of the year to help you to remember your baby’s naming celebration.  If you choose flowers which bloom around the same time as that special day, every time you spot them the occasion will come flooding back to you.  If you have more than one child, you could plant different types of flowers for each of them.

Photographs and Paintings

One of the best ways of commemorating your baby’s naming ceremony is by using some of the photographs which were taken and placing them in pride of place of your home.  Instead of hiding the photos away in an album, you could create a collage of the best moments using a free online tool.

Something else you might do is commission an artist to paint a commemorative representation of the event, which you could then place in your living room.  If you don’t know any artists, your local arts council can help you find one for free. You can then have it framed in a special, customised frame like the ones available from Shed Load of Gifts.

Dedication Book

A final way to commemorate your baby’s naming celebration is to create a dedication book where each of your visitors can write a short message to your new family member.  What’s great about this is that it makes a great present to your child later on in life, so you already have a fully-formed 18th birthday present.

If you want to be a little bit creative, you could scan the pages into your computer and make a digital scrapbook with them, enabling you to preserve the precious memories before time gets the chance to erode them.

So there you have it, 3 great tips to help you commemorate your baby’s naming ceremony.  If you’ve been looking for ways to make this special day even better, you’ve found them.
