The PCP will make his First Holy Communion in May!! We’re busy as bees making his banner, practicing prayers, choosing outfits and starting plans for a family celebration!!!! I made his invitations and prayer cards last week and just love the way they turned out.
We used a celtic cross to represent our Irish heritage. He chose the same one for his banner that I will hopefully share soon!! You can already find a digital version of the invitation in my etsy store. It’s available in blue, gray and pink and with a regular or celtic cross. It would also be great for a Baptism or Confirmation with a tweak to the wording. I used a craft punch to round the edges.
I ordered prayer cards from Catholic Shopper when both of the littles were baptized. When I fell in love with this image but couldn’t find it in a personalized version, I just made my own. I gave these with tiny cake squares for party favors at both baptisms and plan to do the same for First Communion. I have collected quite a few of these over the years and use them as bookmarks in our family bible.
As for the party, we will have our family over for dinner. The boy of the day has requested a cookout so it will be causal, easy and perfect for May.
PS. I have a much better pic of my Hooray Invitation back on that post now too :-) Lots going on in the W household this spring!!
