Golden Communions

I had the pleasureof seeing a friend's daughter receive her first communion last spring, and I must say it was a delightful event. Not being a member of the church, I was a bit at a loss during the religious ceremony but got to participate in the celebration. All of the decorations were done in white and silver with touches of pink. The little girl looked absolutely precious in her white dress and tiny white gloves. These two invitations would suit her perfectly:

 Communion Girl W/ Vellum - This Communion Card is sure to make your childs first holy communion memorable.  The card is made of a gray and white design with a child standing in prayer for her special first communion.  Wearing delicate gloves on her hand and holding a rosary against a beautiful white communion dress that flows off the page.  Your personalization is printed on a delicate vellum overlay that is carefully assembled and printed in a black print that is the perfect accent for this one of a kind  first holy communion invitation.  This product sells out Fast so please order early.    Communion Glove Invitation - New Communion Item!  This is an EXCLUSIVE card that will only be available on our site!  This beautiful communion card adds an extra touch of elegance to that special event. It portrays a young girls gloved hands  holding a rosary.  Can be used for Twins and Triplets.  Comes with  white envelope that is SILVER LINED.  This is a great added touch!


Of course, I spent agood deal of my time speculating on the symbolism of various details. I asked a few questions to my friend about why things were done this way or that, and got a nice explanation of the tradition. My mind couldn't get away from the surroundings, as the decorations of the church were imposing and starkly contrasting the later decorations of the reception. The church was adorned everywhere in gold, no childish bits visible. 

It dawned on me that the communion was as much a time of celebrating a religious "first" as it was to celebrate the quickly growing child participants. Instead of celebrating the youth with baby colors and sweet words, the church was filled with the gravity of the situation and was prompting the children to mature. 

With this thought in mind, I would like to share a few gold-themed communion invitations that reflect this same level of maturity without going overboard. To me, these designs are neutral--great for girls, boys, and twins--and highly customizable. Changing the font alone would easily make the invitation more or less youthful and more or less formal. They are the perfect choice for that something a little bit different from everything else, without sacrificing on the theme or quality.

Golden Cross Invitation - This cards background is white and features an ornate scroll design cross on the top. The border is a solid gold line, with a thinner gold line. The corners have an ornate star pattern with swirls.

The interesting part of being in the Invitation business, is that the holidays that we spend so much time preparing for really culminate for us several weeks before the actual date of the holiday.  So while Christmas is a HUGE business time for us, this week really wraps up the holiday sales period and we have to be ready for what's next.  So then...what is next?  Communion Season!  We are busy getting the site ready for the Communion season; adding new products, creating new graphics for the home page, and finding new manufacturers.  We have a few new manufacturers this year that will be offering Communion Invitations, Thank You cards, and notecard sets.  I promise you will not be dissappointed by the selection!

As always we will be offering JP Sherman Communion Products, they are always a HUGE seller.  Order early so that we can make sure to have time to fulfill your order.  We also have a new line of cards that are gorgeous, high quality cards.  They are not on the site yet, but will be in the next couple of weeks; keep an eye on the homepage in the coming weeks.

So, what are some popular gift ideas for children recieving their First Communion?

  • I found this beautiful bracelet that uses the birthstone of the recipient.  I thought it was a great personal gift that would be something they could keep for years to come.
  • I thought this frame was a great idea since it allows guests to sign the frame with a special message, it would make a great gift for a boy or a girl
  • There were a few cute charm bracelets on this site that I think any girl would love to recieve
  • Money :)
