If you’ve got a child who’s celebrating their first Holy Communion, then it sounds to us like you’ve got a great excuse for a party! It’s a brilliant way to bring friends and family together to celebrate an important event in your little one’s life – and make your child feel pretty special in the process!
For an occasion like this you’re likely to be catering for as many adults as you are children, if not more, so make sure your food isn’t too child friendly – opt for things like pizza and sausage rolls that anyone can enjoy rather than too many novelty snacks.
You might want to steer clear of any foods that are too brightly coloured – wotsit dust or ketchup on your kiddo’s special outfit could really put a damper on the day! Failing that, make sure you have a change of clothes on hand in case your child can’t wait to play outside or wants to change into something it’s easier to run about in.
Whether you’re celebrating a boy's (https://www.thepartywarehouse.co.uk/party-supplies/special-occasions/boys-christening-comunion/) or a girl’s (https://www.thepartywarehouse.co.uk/party-supplies/special-occasions/girls-christening-comunion/) first Holy Communion, we’ve got loads of lovely decorations and supplies in pink and blue to help you create a girly theme or a more boyish feel throughout your whole party.
Blue and pink plates, napkins and banners will make sure no-one forgets it’s your little one’s special day – and they’ll feel like a real little prince or princess. Have a joint party for all of your child's friends who are receiving their first Holy Communion to ensure it's an occasion they never forget.
You could decorate your party venue with cute photos of your child’s christening, or if you’re celebrating more than one child's special day, play a game where guests can guess which baby at their christening matches up to which of the children celebrating their first Holy Communion.
Check out our full range of fancy dress as well as a brilliant selection of party supplies for all occasions, from christenings to communions and everything in between.
