Holy Communion Party Favor Ideas
Help others remember your child's special day with a party favour. (holy communion dress image by Gary Blakeley from Fotolia.com)

A child's First Holy Communion is a special and personal event that marks his decision to receive the sacrament of the Eucharist. When you make the plans to celebrate this event, giving guests party favours will remind them of this special day for years to come. Take into consideration your budget, the number of guests invited and your own preferences when it comes to choosing Holy Communion party favours.


Candles are a party favour that range in price depending on how elaborate they are. A white, medium-length taper with ribbons tied on the bottom third of it is a nice favour that is also budget-friendly. For an extra cost, you can order ribbon that has the honoree's name and the date of her First Holy Communion imprinted on it to give the candle a personal touch.

A candle party favour that you can order or make on your own involves glass candleholders for tea lights with the honoree's name and the date of her First Holy Communion etched into them. You can purchase glass-etching supplies, tea candles and glass candleholders at a craft store. Alternatively, you can order the completed party favour from a party favour company.

Mini-Decade Rosary

Give each guest at a Holy Communion party a mini-decade Rosary in an organza bag. While traditional rosaries have 59 beads, a mini-decade Rosary has 11 beads, according to the website How to Pray the Rosary. Often in the form of a bracelet, a mini-decade Rosary has an "Our Father" bead near the crucifix, a Virgin Mary charm medallion and 10 "Hail Mary" beads.

You can purchase mini-decade Rosaries from religious or party supply companies. If you like to make jewellery, you can also make mini-decade Rosaries for your party guests using any beads you like. Examples of materials you can purchase for your Rosary beads use include glass, stone, crystal, wood and plastic.

Edible Party Favors

Make the precious event even sweeter with edible party favours. A traditional edible party favour is Jordan almonds or butter mints in an organza bag. However, party supply companies can personalise candy tins filled with mints with the honoree's name and picture.

If you want to give chocolate as a party favour, consider ordering personalised chocolate bar wrappers. You can also give a couple of gourmet chocolate truffles in a box imprinted with the honoree's name and the date of the event.

Other edible favours that can be personalised include fortune cookies, frosted sugar cookies or any food item in a bag or jar.
