First Communion Party Ideas

This past weekend, my son made his First Holy Communion.  In keeping with some of the traditions I started last year with my oldest daughter, I made a few little things to help him (and our guests) celebrate and remember this special day.

Here's my handsome little guy all dressed up.

For the party afterwards, I made several dozen cupcakes and served them on a three-tiered cupcake stand I made myself. 

Here's another post showing how I made a similar stand last fall.  This one was the same except I made it with three tiers since I was expecting more guests.  I saved a lot of money by not buying a cake from the bakery (total cost was about $15 for about 50 cupcakes, frosting, cross picks and stand) and it was easy for the guests to serve themselves.  Plus, my nine year old daughter got the chance to frost the cupcakes herself ~ she was thrilled to have such an important role for the party and they turned out quite well.

I wanted my son to have a special keepsake from his important day, so I made this table runner that all the guests could sign. 

I made a similar version in pink and gold (full tutorial HERE) for my daughter last year and I love the way they both turned out.  It was fairly simple to make and looked nice on display during the party.  Once everyone wrote their messages, it became a great keepsake that will last forever (yet it's not bulky and can be folded up and stored away).

Finally,  I used cardstock to make these cute favor boxes that could be placed together to form a cake.

 Once again, it's very similar to the one I made last Spring for my daughter, but using blue instead of pink (post HERE).  I simply used the template I found HERE to make the boxes, added some patterned paper and little decorations, and filled with little treats and candies.

 My son really enjoyed his First Communion day and I loved being able to make a few little things to make his day even more special and memorable (plus I saved a few bucks too!)

Not sure where he came up with this pose, but he kept doing it all day long!


  1. I loved your batik idea that you did for your daughter (I had stumbled upon your site just last week) and I totally copied you for my son's First Communion that was this past weekend. The batik with glue was so easy to do and the results were awesome. My kids enjoyed the project too.

  2. Looks like he had a wonderful day! I love all the personal touches that you did!

  3. Love the cupcakes

  4. Question, what do you do at the banquet after mass. For the kids, are there any traditional games or certain things you must do?

    1. I think it's just up to each family. We just gather to eat and visit with each other back at our own home. Other families we know go out to eat somewhere or even rent a hall. There aren't any hard and fast rules, as far as I know, unless your home parish has certain traditions.

  5. Where did you find the paper centerpieces for your cupcakes and the favor cake?

  6. I love these first communion party ideas! Thanks for sharing

  7. I like this a lot. Thank you for sharing. I'm always looking for upcycles like this. In the end, you don't know it was a shipping pallet to begin with!
