  1. 1

    Visit the party location ahead of time. You can decide on a theme or color scheme while at the location. Write down any dimensions you may need for decoration plans.

  2. 2

    Use personalized decorations for the guest of honor. Banners with the guest of honor's name or photos are very popular. Create a unique touch by displaying family photos. Christian artwork or assignments completed in confirmation class.

  3. 3

    Purchase crepe paper, balloons or other decorations at a party supply store. Helium balloons should be purchased the day of the party to keep them from deflating. Go to a local craft store and look for small cross and bible trinkets, instead of buying expensive confirmation party decorations.

  4. 4

    Decorate the party location the night before the party, if possible. Ask family and friends to help decorate. Start with anything hanging from the ceilings first using ladders.

  5. 5

    Place tables and chairs in their respective places. If you are having a buffet style meal, plan for enough chairs to serve half the number of guests at one sitting.

  6. 6

    Decorate tables and chairs last using items such as confetti and centerpiece. A small vase of flowers is simple and beautiful. Place a vase with three to five small flowers of your choice on each table.

Tips and warnings

  • Give yourself plenty of time to decorate and make decisions that arise while preparing the confirmation party location.
  • Mix and match a solid colored plate, napkin or cup with some of the more expensive confirmation decorated items to save money.
  • Don't put too many things on tables making it impossible for guests to have room for drinks and plates.
  • Be sure to check with the confirmation party location to find out about decorating rules and restrictions.
