Treat your child's first communion as a chance to get the whole family together

Date Created: 03/23/2012

Treat your child's first communion as a chance to get the whole family together. It's finally spring, and while the flowers are blooming and the trees are finally budding, this is also the time of year when many Christian sacraments are held. If you have a little one who is about to complete his or her first communion, this is an occasion that calls for your whole family to get involved. While you could go wild with a few spring party themes, it's best to keep this as a chance to catch up with your family and reward your child for becoming a full-fledged member of your congregation. Using a few dazzling party decorations and a couple of advanced preparations, you should have everything ready when your family returns to your home after the ceremony.

1. Plan your meal ahead of time. Since you're going to be running back and forth to the ceremony and your home, you may not have the time to whip up a world-class meal. You're also going to want to spend as much time with your relatives as you possible can, so make things easier on yourself by opting for a large lasagna or baked ziti. You can pop this right in the oven when you get home, and your guests can snack on appetizers until it's ready. Be sure to include plenty of party tableware and catering supplies to make cleanup less of a chore.

2. Festive flair. This is a festive occasion that will bring together members of your extended family, so your decorative scheme should match the nature of the celebration. Hang up party curtains on your front door, a personalized banner with your child's name and assorted mylar balloons perking up your outdoor seating area. This is a significant milestone in your child's life, so it's time to go for the gusto!

3. Party favors. There are various ways to thank your family members for attending your gathering, but you can give them a sweet treat by making a batch of cookies and handing them out in personalized cookie tin favors. This is a fabulous way to thank your guests for their generosity and give them something to enjoy long after the party.

Your child's first communion is a huge event in his religious journey, so give him the party he deserves with these gorgeous first communion party supplies.
