First Holy Communion Parties
First holy communions are a very special event in a child's life. Often parents will invite friends and family to celebrate the special occasion with them. Since it is that time of year, here are some quick planning tips to help with planning the reception or party that will follow.
First Holy Communion Party Favors
First Communion Candy Wrappers are a very popular choice for party favors. There are several designs to choose from. Keep in mind that most designs that will work for baptisms or other religious events will also work great for first holy communions. There are several candy wrappers to choose from. You can even add a photo of the child on the front of some of the designs if you would like.
First Holy Communion Cakes
Here are some first communion cakes that are relatively easy to make and will give you some good ideas on different ways you can decorate a first communion cake. Once again keep in mind that cakes such as this cross cake that can be used for baptisms or christenings can also be used for first holy communions.
You can have your child's picture taken in advance wearing her dress and veil or suit. You can then have the option of sending out picture invitations if you want. This way everyone will have a picture. It will also be nice to already have the pictures done and you will need to make sure the child has the complete outfit for the pictures, so nothing will be left until the last minute. You can also order a collage of pictures or a larger picture of the child in their first holy communion outfit to display on the cake table at the luncheon, party or reception.
As with any party, the more you can do in advance the better and the more you will be able to enjoy the event and spending time with family and friends for this very special celebration.
