Spring is the season for First Communions! First Communions are an important rite of passage and there are many great ways to celebrate them!

Start off your communion by sending out simple invitations. Classic pink, blue, yellow, or white are fitting for the occasion.

The reception following the ceremony is where you can have more fun! Pretty, simple table designs are perfect for the mixed crowd you will probably have at your reception.

First Communion Table Setting


If you don’t want a floral centerpiece, a small picture frame with a printed design is a cute way to celebrate a communion! Any color will go well with a white frame, and you can add accents, like sports-themed scrapbook stickers, to suit the girl or boy of honor.

Balloons in the color of your choice can also add color to your table without looking too adult. After your meal, you can add some fun with a candy station! Candy stations are a fun way to serve up sweet treats to please all your guests, regardless of age.


To finish, try a fun dessert to wrap up the party! Cake designs with a classic cross or congratulations are fitting for the occasion. Additionally, cake pops are all the rage right now! You can try making them at home for a fun project with your guest of honor as well! 


For favors, try an edible gift to take home, like a communion cookie or a molded lollipop! They look adorable and are sure to please the young guests at the reception! Make this day an event to remember!
