Heirloom Christening Gowns Ivy Emerald Our Website of The Week
Ivy Emerald was established in early 2008 by Janice Schmitzer, a grandmother of 3, after recognising a gap in the market for heirloom quality Christening gowns and rompers for baby girls and boys.
‘I realised there was a gap in the market on the birth of my grandson when my daughter had great difficulty in sourcing a special boy’s gown for his Baptism. My 4 daughters and 2 granddaughters had all worn the same gown but we wanted something special for a little boy.’
Ivy Emerald’s divine, hand made designer gowns are handcrafted in Australia. Gowns are made from intricate hand beaded laces and silks and can be passed on to brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, granddaughters and grandsons.
An heirloom gown is really something to be treasured. Heirlooms link generations in a deep and personal way. A grandmother’s christening gown passed down through the generations can provide insight into and a richer understanding of a family’s history.
A Christening is a special celebration to which family and close friends attend when a baby is taken for their baptismal and christened with their name. It is an important occasion – putting Christenings alongside Weddings as a lovely gathering for families. Following the ceremony can be a celebration ranging from a small gathering with cake and coffee, to a huge party with much food and entertainment.
Ivy Emerald recognises the importance of dressing your baby in exquisite dress – a Christening gown is as big a part of the traditional Christening ceremony as the bride’s dress is on her Wedding day.
Ivy Emerald now also stock an exquisite range of flower girls dresses up to age 8 .
