This is the child’s ‘Big Day’, they’ve prepared in school and they’ve just gone through the ceremony and now it’s time to party with their cousins and friends. Both Communion and Confirmation are the first occasions where the party is in the child’s honour and they are old enough to realise it’s ‘all for them’ so make it Special, make it a day they will remember.
You will find cheap and cheerful themed Confirmation/First Holy Communion invitations in good party supply shops so take a look online when you are planning the event for both the invitations and ideas on planning and decorating the party.
Children love sparkle and colour so use them generously when decorating the party area. The best party ideas are simple. Scatter themed confetti on the themed table cover. Use a pyramid stand for the cupcakes. Children (of all ages) love balloons, fill them with helium and let them float above the party. With today’s technology it is now possible to personalise both latex and foil balloons – find a good party supplies shop for the best advice on personalising decorations – they are the experts.
Use streamers and banners, pull-bows are cheap and cheerful but add a richness to a banner when placed at either end and depending on the age group of the children, party hats add a fun element as will ‘Silly String’ and fun ‘Hair-spray’.
Themed Napkins, Cups, Plates, etc. make it easy for the adults who must tidy up after the party.
It’s a children’s party so don’t forget the loot-bags for the smaller guests as they leave.
