First Communion parties are expensive. As a mom of five children, I like to do things on a budget! Save money with DIY center pieces. We love a good party, but there are lots of parties we are not invited to attend.
Check out some of these great First Communion party ideas and tips for your next celebration.
Pink and white with silver accents are a gorgeous color combination!

What is a First Communion?
Catholics and Christians who receive holy communion believe in Jesus Christ, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The sacrament of the eucharist, when you receive communion is the acceptance oof bread and wine as symbols of the body and blood of Christ.
Catholics are required to go to confession especially before receiving communion. Many Christian-based churches also use crackers or some form of dry bread-like product.
A First Communion is when a person has not received the sacrament before. The Catholic Church requires religious education before children can take their first communion.
Children have to be Baptized first. When a child receives the body and blood of Christ for the first time, it one of the most important family gatherings that Christians attend.
Holy Eucharist is a Christian initiation upon reception of the sacrament. Boys and girls both wear white clothes because it represents purity and a new beginning. Boys wear white formal-wear and girls wear white dresses.
