First communion is an event celebrated by Christians in which the person receives their first Eucharist. It is usually celebrated between the ages of seven and thirteen and is a very joyous occasion for the child as well as his family. It is a very holy ceremony and is usually conducted in Church. The first communion ceremony is usually followed by celebration in the form of a party.
Since it is one of the early events in the life of the child, it should be planned with a lot of care. The celebrations should remain afresh in everyone’s memory for years to come and should stand out as one of the most significant events in the kid’s life.
You can make this party a theme related one or can keep it simple and as per the liking of your child. Buy a special outfit for your child to wear on the occasion. At this age, the child begins to understand a lot of things and therefore it is important to throw a good first communion party, keeping your child’s likes into consideration.
