January is the time when parents begin to think about their children’s First Holy Communion and Confirmation. The first Confirmations are performed as early as the end of January and early February, while First Holy Communions tend to occur from March onwards.
First Holy Communion / Confirmation Celebrations
Religious indoctrination is ongoing during the school year and peaks prior to the ceremony often with much rehearsal for the day. Outside of school, parents are shopping for outfits and planning the post Communion / Confirmation Party for extended family and close friends.
While many parents opt to entertain in a hotel setting, many others choose to remain in their homes. Regardless of which option is chosen all parents like to use themed decor for the party.
Begin by decorating the room with ‘Honeycomb Balls, Latex and Foil Balloons, Streamers and personalised Banners.
Decorate the table in themed cover, plates, drinking cup and centre pieces such as Cupcake Stands and of course the ‘all important’ cake.
Communion / Confirmation Cake Decorations
Long before the big day, a parent or family member bakes the celebratory cake. It is iced and decorated with a religious theme, often to be transported on the big day. Good stores stock a range of roll-out icing, cake top decorations, cake boards and boxes so the customer has a one stop shop for all the little bits and pieces
Personalised Party Decorations
Some families love to personalise the celebrations, especially if they are doing so in an hotel. Personalised balloons floating above the table with the child’s name gives them a thrill when they enter what would otherwise be just another public space. Personalised banners are great for facilities that can provide a smaller room for just the family and of course it’s always great to see the child’s name on a bespoke cake topper
