Music plays a key role in any spiritual celebration; that is why every soulful celebration should come complete with a playlist that is both rhythmic and reverent, tuneful and timeless. These tunes should reflect a spiritual bent in a tasteful and meaningful way. And they should keep guests entertained throughout the day. Songs could include:

Will the Circle Be Unbroken by Johnny Cash and Family
Amazing Grace by Celtic Thunder
Looking For You by Kirk Franklin
Lose My Soul by TobyMac
His Eye is On the Sparrow by the Gaither Vocal Band
Angel by Sarah McLachlin
I Saw the Light by Hank Williams Sr.
Just a Closer Walk With Thee by Patsy Cline
A pure mixture of gospel classics and contemporary Christian favorites, this playlist is sure to please everyone in attendance at a holy party; which also should boast a full supply of beautiful, inspirational party supplies. These could include spiritual wall art that depicts images of Jesus Christ and scenes taken from the Bible; crosses of gold and silver hues adorning the walls; tiny take home Bibles that can serve as very meaningful party favors; and a party table centerpiece that could include a stone or porcelain sculpture of hands folded in prayer. Guests are sure to be amazed at the vision of these spiritual symbols. Murals and scene setters bearing the likeness of stained glass would make another nice addition to a beautiful holy party. They could fact transform a room into an area of worship and inspiration. Line wicker baskets with colorful cloth napkins that can be matched to a theme, while being used to serve food or hold things like utensils. With a spool of ribbon you can, tie napkins and dinnerware with a bow, make curly streamers, tie ribbon around chairs, add accents to floral arrangements, just go as far as your creativity will take you. Decorations help transform a room into something more for that special day so look forward to learning some exciting and creative ideas.

Holy Communion handmade party supplies such as banners, handmade flags and balloon bouquets will add a lot to a Holy Communion celebration. These little tokens can make all the difference for sure. The Holy Communion is a special time in the life of Catholic families and an assortment of Holy Communion party supplies such as paper plates, napkins and cups will make cleaning up after this party much easier. They should be practical as well as eye catching in nature. “The Holy Communion,” is a time when a Catholic child takes communion for the first time. Catholic families prepare for a Holy Communion party for many years. This is a special and exalted day for many people. For the most part, Holy Communion handmade party goods and homemade party supplies are fun to make and with the addition of party goods such as balloons, personalized beach balls and inflatables the party will be complete.

A Holy Communion is recognized as a time for celebration and can compare to other special occasions. Making homemade personalized banners commemorating the Holy Communion can be a nice touch to the Holy Communion event. These banners will serve to define and identify the event. Having a party or celebration with homemade party goods will give family and friends a chance to be part of the Holy Communion. They will feel very special, like they made the day. Homemade party goods and handmade party supplies save a great deal of money and add a special touch to this occasion.


A Holy Communion is a sacred ceremony that should be marked with a dignified celebration; one that warrants an elegant, subtle, but still delicious Holy Communion party cake. At this event even a yummy pastry takes on a deeply spiritual meaning.

A basic chocolate or vanilla cake topped with fluffy white icing would make an ideal—not to mention easily prepared—Holy Communion party cake. If topped by party supplies such as lace doilies and paper lace hearts, the cake could bear an impressive resemblance to a Holy Communion gown. One that is beautiful, delicious and divine. Other cake toppers could include small plastic dolls adorned in these dresses, as well as tiny crosses in shades of gold and ivory. Guests even might take home these toppers as fun favors.

A cross also would make an ideal shape to fit a Holy Communion party cake theme. People would immediately identify this as a holy symbol. This cake could be baked in a cross-shaped pan; alternately, two separate cakes could be prepared in long, narrow pans and merged together to form a cross shape. This cake could be adorned with ivory-hued icing and gold sprinkles for effect. This little touches of beauty make all the difference.

As a wine glass is another classic symbol of the Holy Communion ceremony, one also might prepare a Holy Communion party cake with this design. Just make sure that the glass represented bears more of a likeness to a stately gold tankard than a more modern snazzy champagne flute! This difference means a lot at a spiritual celebration.

In the tradition of Catholicism, a child’s First Holy Communion is a time for celebration. In many families, the Mass is followed by a luncheon at the family’s home or perhaps meeting in a restaurant for a late morning or early afternoon brunch, depending on which church service you attended for that day.

A child must first be baptized if he or she has not already before receiving the First Holy Communion. This is a day of celebration for both the family of the child and the parish because it is a recognition that the child is giving himself in to the teachings of his church and understands what he or she is doing. This event usually occurs around the age of seven, but it can vary among children, depending on their level of comprehension of the teachings of the Catholic Church.

The celebration that follows is not particularly a party but more of a celebration with family members sharing in the events leading up to the child partaking of the sacrament. Typically, little girls wear a white dress and boys a suit on this particular day. In some families, the celebration may filter over to the dinner meal, making the entire day a day of prayer and celebration for the child who has first partaken of the Eucharist. Of course, for non-Catholics, the celebration is not such a big one because it is a more solemn event in other denominations.

A celebration of a child’s First Holy Communion is also likely to consist of a great many pictures so that family members will always remember the event. This may also mean that the home is decorated in typical religious style finery in order to keep the mood of the day focused on the child and his greatest accomplishment within the church family.

Far more than just a celebratory feast, Holy Communion is a sacred ritual that celebrates the perfect life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. This is one of the most sacred days on the Christian calender. It is also an opportunity to join with friends and familes for a special meal. Everyone is sure to enjoy this very special day.

Although deeply and historically rooted in the Catholic Church, people of various faiths now sit down to celebrate Holy Communion; and often many times during the course of their lives, as this is not a one-time ritual. Each Commmunion will serve to refresh and revitalize the soul.

Guests at Holy Communion sit down for a serving of bread (to represent the body of Christ) and wine (to symbolize Christ’s blood). This is a day closely linked to food and drink. The presiding priest symbolically transforms the feast in an act of consecration that takes place during a preceding Mass.

As participants eat they reflect upon the great life, many accomplishments, and noble death of their Savior. This is a time for deep spiritual reflection to be sure. And they can reflect in depth on Biblical scriptures associated with this rite, including Matthew 26:26-28 and 1 Corinthians 10:16-17.

Although the nature and ritual of Holy Communion has remained constant over time, some elements have changed. Everything seems to change with the passing of time. Once homemade, Communion bread and wine now can be purchased at religious stores or even online. And the ritual has been specially adapted for the younger set; children often drink grape juice, and not wine, at First and Holy Communions.

The deep, intense meaning of Holy Communion remains pure and constant throughout the generations. Joining with one’s friends, priest and fellow and sister churchgoers is both a divine and fulfilling act. Help plan a beautiful Holy Communion ceremony today! Then savor the precious memories of this day forever. Build excitement about the event by doing something different or unique with the invitations like including artwork or a picture to the guests. Sending out save-the-date cards is extremely important as the holidays approach and guests have a number of social engagements to attend.
