PART ONE: The decoration.
More and more mothers are calling or writing to ask us for ideas on how to organize a First Communion party. We want to share with you our experience, some ideas and tips that can help you organize your children's First Communion on your own and without stress...
* Colors, shapes or themes... the starting point of any party *
This is the starting point and the most important when designing any special party. Define the colors or a theme that may be present throughout the celebration. It's a simple thing, but it will make your party look organized and tidy. If this is not respected from the beginning, then the result ends up being a mixture of colors and shapes that confuse and it will be very difficult for the result to be what you have in mind. Involve your son in this election, it is his party and he will be very excited.
For example, if for a boy's First Communion we decide on a marine theme, we can define a color palette in navy blue, white , coral and jute or natural wood . We will also rely on some forms such as horizontal stripes , stars and anchors... this will order us and make it much easier for us to choose all the decoration accessories for our party, the stationery and even the sweets if we assemble a Candy Bar .
