Decorating for a First Communion can be an enjoyable task, especially with our great photos of events others have created along with some unique table items. Here are some of our favorites.
Chalice Favors Candle – This lovely candle is so functional as it can be used as a table decoration and also be taken home as a favor. Be sure to keep them in their boxes if you choose to use them as favors.
First Communion Dessert Buffet – There are so many lovely decorative touches that really make this dessert table so elegant. It was created by Little Big Company – http://www.tlbc.com.au located in Australia.
Center stage is the elegant white communion cake. It is such a great idea to use cakes as a decoration. It saves money and adds beauty. In fact, several party hosts I know place a small decorated cake on each table as the sole centerpiece. Little Big Company also did a wonderful job incorporating their decorations into the character of the room. Here is a close up shot of some of the table items.
Little Big Company made some of the simplest items as part of the decorations. You’ll notice a variety of glass jars filled with jelly beans, chocolate kisses and meringue cookies. Four pieces of yellow rock candy in a glass container add color to this lovely muted color scheme. I love how the signs on jars are attached by blue ribbon. A simple gold frame is a great decoration whether you provide an overview of what is being served on the buffet, send a thank you message or display a photo of the communicant. A simple glass cylinder vase filled with a few flowers is also a great decoration. The one shown in the photo also has some paper decorations that add color. A particularly clever touch is the boxes wrapped with gold paper, that are used as stands for the candy jars. This is a wonderful way to vary the height of your communion decorations.
Standing Cross Communion favors make for great decorations, as they can also be used as guest gifts. You will find crosses in a variety of material including clear glass, crystal, ceramic, plastic, resin (hard plastic) and metal. You can position them around a vase of flowers or place one at each table setting for guests to take home. Some communion party hosts use a mirror as a base and place standing crosses along with other meaningful figurines on it.
