Violet's Naming Day

The sun shone for Violet's Naming Day on Saturday - we were so lucky as it rained heavily the day before and after. The ceremony was beautiful and Violet wore a chiffon tiered dress that used to belong to my great-aunt - she looked like a fairy.

We had polaroid photo albums for all the guests to sign so that Violet can have a record of the day read when she is older. I really recommend these if you're holding a similar event.


We also had a tree with tickets for guests to write a little message for Violet. We did the same thing for Z and E and re-read them on their birthdays. Some are funny, some are serious and some are very touching - a lovely mixture of sentiments.


The marmalade that I wrote about making in this post was bottled up into baby jars and used as a little thank you present for the guests. {I forgot to hand them out - whoops}


I have taken the day off work to recover from our lovely day.

  4. What great ideas - I especially love the polaroid album - did you pre-fill it with pictures, or were they taken on the day? Glad you all had a lovely day!
