There are many milestones in a person’s life when they are born when they graduate, and when they get married, at least for the average person—for others, like those who profess the Catholic faith, getting that first communion is one of the most important days in their lives, a day that calls for celebrations.

If you have reached this point in your life, the following are some of the home decor ideas you can use to spice up the party.

Balloon Crosses

The theme for such a gathering is all about touching base with your spiritual self, and one of the best and most creative ways to manifest that is through turning balloon decorations into the shape of Christian crosses.

You can mix up different colors for this type of art, and there’s no limit to the size that you can go with. You could go with a small one that can stand on a coffee table or go big with a giant balloon cross that can’t fit in the house.

The bottom line is that it requires a talented person to pull it off, and once you have it up, it would transform the mood of the celebration.

Cross Salad

How about serving some delicious salad arranged in the form of a cross on a plate? Just close your eyes and imagine the looks of admiration that would be thrown your way once people lay their eyes on them.

The choice of using a fruit salad is the easiest since you can work with various types of fruits, each with its own color. You can arrange several salad plates and pass them around the room.

For the best results, use bright colors on the outside of the cross and dark-colored fruits in the middle to create that contrast that would make it easy for people to immediately tell that they are looking at a cross.

Don’t limit yourself to salads, though; you can even choose to go with baking or any other type of food. It’s all about thinking outside the box and getting creative.

Cross Cake

Cross Cake


This is the first thing that should pop into your head. All you have to do is to make your favorite cake but one that is shaped like a cross. If you are good at baking, then you can handle the whole process on your own and even add your own alterations you move.

You can add your name or some other form of decoration that shows the name of the occasion. The choice of colors is up to you. You can also get creative with the shape of the cake; it doesn’t have to be the normal one-dimensional type of cross.

You can add some slight extensions were appropriate as long as it doesn’t get disfigured to the point where it becomes unrecognizable. Play around with different ideas as much as you want.


Celebratory Candles


Candles go hand in hand with religiosity, and for a celebration as big as having your first communion, then candles have to feature in large numbers. Such occasions are usually preceded by a mass, and masses never lack candles.

The same candles can be used to provide ambient lighting for the celebration, and another added advantage of having candles is that they can also be decorated with whales being used as decorations.

They can be arranged to form a cross, or you can use multiple colors to add variety to the whole setup. The candles themselves can have the sign of the cross embedded on them for more effect.


Cross Wallpaper


Being a temporary event, it would make sense to use temporary wall murals like wallpapers rather than fixing something as permanent as a direct wall painting, which could get you into trouble with your landlord if you are a renter.

The wallpapers could feature the shape of a cross, an image of Jesus or mother Mary, or a painting of the holy communion itself. You could also make use of tapestry art as that can be taken down at any time.


First communion decor is a personal affair; there’s no standard formula for doing it. Each person has their own style and tastes. What is common in all of these events is the heavy presence of religious symbols like crosses and rosaries.
