    Look at it as your guide to get a clear picture of how much it costs to host a christening party.

  • We usually don’t just look for small venues for our baptism parties these days; we look for a great experience for our guests. For a christening reception, these restaurants have a lot to offer especially when it comes to food and ambiance for grown-ups.  We have picked venues that can accommodate 10 to 100 guests  that offer different cuisines, from Chinese to Spanish. (After all, since it isn't a birthday party, you don't have to be limited to spaghetti.) 

    If you have an intimate gathering, you may be pleasantly surprised how far your budget can go with some of these restaurants.
