While most people are familiar with the concept of Christening Day celebrations, Naming Days have become popular more recently, gaining credence throughout the world in a variety of cultures. A Naming Ceremony is a non-religious alternative to the traditional Christening Day, during which a child is introduced to his or her wider family and friends and their name is officially assigned to them in front of witnesses. Parents typically make declarations, promises and commitments to their children, and guardians may be elected to take on a role that is similar to a godparent, but which is void of religious responsibility. Guardians will often promise to love and guide the child alongside his or her parents and readings may be read from story books as opposed to religious books.
Whatever occasion is being celebrated, creating mementos of the day is key to ensuring it is remembered and cherished. Asking guests to sign books is a traditional and customary part of most celebrations, but the messages are contained solely within the book, and can only be viewed by opening the book and reading each individual page and messages. With signature plates, however, all of the guests' well-wishes are written on the front of the plate, which can be displayed proudly in the home as a special memento of the Christening or Naming Day.
Our Naming Day Signature Plate - Blue is hand-painted in silver relief and charmingly decorated with a cute baby feet motif. Eye-catchingly crafted in a square-style shape, the plate is beautifully decorated in script-style writing with the words 'Naming Day' and coated with a special material that allows your guests to write their messages directly onto the plate with the special pen provided. Once signed, the plate should be allowed to dry for 24 hours, and then baked in the oven, wherein the messages will set and the plate will become a perfect array of well-wishes. Our Naming Day Signature Plate - Pink features the same design, but in a pretty pink colour that's perfect for a special little lady on her Naming Day. Alternatively, our Naming Day Signature Plate is perfect for babies of any gender! Gorgeously decorated with a cute ribbon and bootie design, this plate is oval shaped, and embossed with the words 'Naming Day'. Like our other plates, this plate can be uniquely signed by the guests with the pen provided and then baked to create a unique masterpiece.
