First Holy Communion Party Ideas
A lot of communion parties focus on a color theme. You can choose a few colors that match and incorporate them into your food, décor, and even party favors. Usually communion is a fancy affair, and you can continue this formal feeling throughout your party. Decorate your table or party location with white or lightly colored flowers to give your ambiance a clean, crisp feeling. You can also scatter scented candles to add aroma and an intimate experience.
You can serve all kinds of food at your party. Depending on the time of day, you can offer small snacks and appetizers or an entire meal. Vegetable platters and dip or even sliced fruit can be pre-purchased and arranged on a nice platter that matches your party theme. And no one needs to know you didn’t do any of the work.
Here are some ideas for First Holy communion cakes that are simple to make that you can make for the occasion. I particularly like this cross cake followed by this First Communion cake. Depending on how much cake you need, you may want to make both of them if you are having a lot of guests at your party and will need the extra cake.For morning gatherings, you can purchase or make muffins and scones for guests to enjoy. Bakeries (even ones in your local grocery store) offer tons of pre-made treats that aren’t expensive and look homemade. Have different juices and coffees available as well. You can check out party stores for things like glasses, napkins, and plates that all match and won’t leave tons of dishes for you to do later. Party stores are also a perfect place to gather party favors for your guests. A great idea for First Communion party favors are personalized candy bar wrappers. There are many different religious candy wrappers that you can choose from and they can be personalized however you would like. They really make impressive party favors, yet they are inexpensive and easily affordable. You can see some samples of different First Holy Communion candy wrappers here to give you an idea of the different types of personalizations you can have on the wrappers.
As long as you focus on the purpose of the day, you’re bound to have a great time, as well as those that you’re celebrating with.
