Decorating for a communion party is both a fun and a symbolically significant occasion. A child's communion is a special time for family and friends to come together to bond and celebrate the joy of that person's rite of passage as a spiritual being. There are many ways you might want to decorate the communion table and celebration space, but one of the most enjoyable ways is to decorate with photographs of the communicant themselves and build the rest of the table decorations around those photos.
Many craft stores have special sections for religious events such as weddings and baptisms, and you can find items here to use for table top decorations for a communion celebration as well. Many communions occur in the spring, a time of symbolic renewal and new birth, and you can use fresh cut flowers in whites and spring pastel colors to evoke that theme for your centerpiece. You can also often even find religious themed confetti pieces at craft or party stores, and you can sprinkle colorful confetti around the table and in between the fragrant flowers and the photographs of the communicant. You may want to cut and place a fresh flower at each place setting along with a tiny photo of the communicant stamped with the date and time of the service as a keepsake.
Many online retailers offer themed favors and decorations. On websites like A Little Favor and Shindigz Party you can find great ideas as well as links to buy personalized party favors that you can put at each place setting, and table decorations to help make your day special. A fun touch for a first communion is to use the communion cake as the centerpiece, and have it personalized with a screen print photo of the communicant, the date, and a single candle highlighting the significance of the event.
