First Communion Party
Spring is here, and with the arrival of spring comes first communion season! I am very excited to be helping a friend with her daughter’s first communion party! Although I have no doubt she could put together a fabulous party, she enlisted my help for this momentous occasion. I’m so thrilled!
The first thing that we talked about were the colors for the event. I was hoping that she would want to do something a little outside of the box and add some color to the traditional white that embodies a first communion. In fact, I was really hoping that her daughter would want to use some pink and gold or seafoam and gold in the decor! I think that some soft muted pinks or blues are stunning combined with white and are the perfect way to modernize a first communion party! Well, as luck would have it, that is exactly what she and her daughter had envisioned!
To each their own, but in my opinion, a first communion party should be a little more tailored and formal than a birthday traditional kids’ party. That’s not saying that a birthday party can’t have these gorgeous colors or decorations, but I am saying that you probably wouldn’t have bright bold primary colors at a first communion party!
After deciding on the colors and all of the spaces to decorate, I went on the search for some classic pink, white, and gold decorations. Honestly, some of these decorations I’d keep up in my house all year long! The vision board above doesn’t show everything that will be making its debut at this first communion party, but I’ll be sure to share it all once it is complete!
While on my search, I came across some unbelievably gorgeous photos that became inspiration images for me.
Here are some of the beautiful inspiration photos!
For the dessert table, we are planning a small balloon garland above a pin board that has a “God Bless Maddie” garland.
I love these giant pink balloons! We plan to flank the front door and back door with two pink balloons and lanterns, as well as, mix pink and white balloons for the centerpieces on the outdoor tables.
We’re planning a small balloon garland on the dessert table and a large one in the foyer. Whether large or small these balloon garlands are adorable!
Take a look below to see how to put together this sophisticated and sweet first communion party! We have more decor planned than what you see here, but this is a surefire start to creating a gorgeous and modern first communion party!
